"Boy, those French ! They have a different word for everything."
Steve Martin (American comedian ~ 1945)
Twelve ready-to-use lesson plans for the sub who does * n-o-t * know French.
Feeling overwhelmed sometimes ?
Too many preps ?
Stacks of papers to grade ?
Yet another meeting to go to ?
This resource will save you precious time because everything is ready-to-use.
These substitute lesson plans provide an informative lesson for your class through exposure to the various aspects of the language, culture, history and geography of the French-speaking countries. Please note that some plans require using reference books in the school library or online resources.
The plans are suitable for any level. I always had so many
preps that, to simplify things for the sub and to simply save time, I had
all my classes do the same plan in my absence.
It worked remarkably well.
Some plans also have Minitests for meaningful follow-up.

Twelve plans in all to keep your students connected to French and the French-speaking world.
Is your administration frowning on the use of movies with a substitute ?
Then these plans are for you as they involve no movies (please see my Movie*Pacs).
These substitute lesson plans (or emergency lesson plans) are classroom-ready to make your job easier. (73 pages)
* Wondering what to do with that
one errant student assigned to ISS
(in-school suspension or in-house suspension) ?
This will be meaningful & positive work for them to do.
.. Below are a few teacher comments ..
One teacher said:
"I can tell that your ideas come from your experiences and really are sensible, fun and slide with ease into whatever text. I've been teaching for 27 years and have tried many approaches. Yours are the first materials that my students request by name - Sub*Pacs. I just wish I had more of them!"

And another said:
"Wow!!! Wow, wow, wow!!! I found this to be THE most helpful resource on TpT (and I have bought HUNDREDS of dollars' worth of stuff). I was so relieved to see activities that are truly low-prep (copying) and of a general enough level so that all my classes could do it and not feel like it was busywork/too challenging. I very enthusiastically recommend this product."
