Do you wish you had more time to spend on culture topics in your French class? Sneak in some French art with this fun flipped classroom culture project on Marcel Duchamp!
To complete this project, students will need to research a bit about Marcel Duchamp and his artwork (a mix of French and English resources), fill out an information sheet (in English), and then create their own masterpiece in the style of Marcel Duchamp. Since this project can be done entirely at home, there’s no need to worry about time ‘wasted’ in class discussing this French artist in English. When students turn in the project, they can do a concluding activity in French to wrap everything up and tie in vocabulary and grammatical structures.
★ This project requires a bit of prep and basic computer skills. Because some of Marcel Duchamp’s pieces contain nudity, I highly
recommend that you create a PowerPoint with information about the artist and his pieces of art. This way, students can find the information they need about the Marcel Duchamp without searching the web. I cannot share mine with you, as I would be infringing on copyright restrictions, however I include step by step directions and a list of resources to quickly and easily make your own. You’ll need to know how to take some screen shots, put them into a PowerPoint, and share that PowerPoint with your students. Easy enough, right?
This packet contains everything you need to assign this fun culture project to your students:
•Resources and directions to create your own informational PowerPoint
•An information sheet for students to fill out as they are going through your PowerPoint
•A project direction sheet
•Two versions of grading rubrics
•Exit tickets for a concluding activity
•A page of tips for introducing and activities for concluding this project
•A PowerPoint of 4 student samples for your students to reference
I do this project with my 8th grade second-year French students. Every year they tell me they really enjoy learning about Marcel Duchamp and making their own project. I hope your students love it, too!
