Have a year-long theme of living in Paris. I use this in my 2nd year high school French class, but you could use this idea at any level. Tie the vocabulary and grammar concepts from your textbook units to this theme to provide a cultural connection. Students will make Paris apartment scrapbook pages, will be reading authentic websites in French, will write and speak about their apartments. This 6 page document includes instructions, how to set this up, criteria sheets for the apartment pages, a grading rubric, and a follow-up speaking activity.
