With Lent now here, perhaps you are thinking of showing the film Chocolat to your French classes. This unit will challenge your students to study and analyze both the characters and the themes. It will also give them a chance to be creative in designing a new cover for the DVD. The unit was written for a French 1 class taught for 85-minutes every other day. The packet of materials includes a hand-out about Lent and 4 assignments, some of which can be done while the students watch the film, others which are written for them to do after watching it.
