A comprehensive unit guide for reading "Les Pirates des Caraïbes" (a reader purchased through Blaine Ray's TPRS company),this document contains:
-pre-reading article and student activities on piracy in the 1700s
-during reading activities for each chapter of Les Pirates (11 chapters total)
-a final test and answer key
Each chapter takes about one full (50 minute) class period if students are reading and finishing the activities in class. The activities and reading can be done independently or intermixed with paired reading, students acting out the chapters, or the teacher reading aloud. In the end, this unit takes approximately 2.5 weeks to teach but could become shorter or longer depending on homework assigned or extension activities added.
The unit and book address literacy and reading skills as well as improving knowledge of French language and francophone culture and history and the love triangle in the story keeps all students interested, boys and girls alike. I recommend this reader for students at the end of French 1 or the beginning of French 2.
