Product Description
This "movie talk" lesson plan is based on the short animated video called "The Vampire and the Dentist" or it is sometimes called "Vampire's Crown". It is available easily on YouTube and other video sites. You can save it by using and saving it to a flash drive, cloud site, or your hard drive. I cannot provide it here because that would infringe on copyrights.

This is a three-day unit for French in all levels. (It could also go as long as a week of high school classes) There are two files. The first one, worksheets, is 6 pages long. There are worksheets for French I, French II, and French III/IV. Each worksheet has targeted vocabulary (the Super 7 verbs are accented) and words to know (vampire, dentist, crown, pain, etc.) Then, on each level, there is a list of sentences that tell the story of the video. French I is basic, in present tense, French II is about the same but in past tense, and French III / IV is more sophisticated, and in the past tense.

Also in the first document are three more worksheets. These have the retold story of the video, but it is scaffolded. It is still level appropriate, but more detail is given, and it is more challenging.

In the second file I've written out teacher notes (for myself as well as for you) about how to use all the worksheets, what activities to do, alternative activities to consider, and homework suggestions for each night. Full plans are there for three to five days. Then, I've given T/F quizzes for all three levels, another type of test that has three of the basic pictures from the video and students are to write under the picture what was happening, and try to fill in more of the story, and another type of test / homework that has screenshots of the video with sentences. Students need to match the sentence to the screenshot.

If you've never done TPRS movie talks, this is a great one to try. The super seven are the basic verbs needed to talk about practically anything :avoir, être, vouloir, aimer, aller, vouloir and voir... so this story is built on those seven verbs, and expanded from there. I've given detailed notes and ideas about how to do the lesson, and how to do PQA (personal questions and answers) .
