Introduce your students to three icons of French culture in your first year French class.
Unit 1. Napoléon combines the family with the historic reality. The unit serves as a wonderful introduction to the vocabulary of the family.
Unit 2. The unit on Molière, who is usually taught at a more advanced level where there are a lot fewer students, permits your students to do easy comparisons between school plays and Molière's works.
Unit 3. Astérix introduces students to a dearly beloved cartoon character, emblematic of the French speaking world.
When Marie-Claudine and I put this together we thought it was great fun to put such disparate themes together.
