Goldie lives in a dusty and desolate place. She is so close to a better life. What will Goldie sacrifice to get to a better life? This movie talk is made for beginning French students. It is appropriate for their first semester; it's a great way to get kids thinking about the hardships immigrants face. Vocabulary used is all high frequency; (my target structures were il doit and il a besoin). Included: pre-teaching guidance and activities, detailed instructions on how to successfully movie talk in class, a simple 1.5-page reading, post activities which deliver more input, and opportunities for discussion and reflection. This can be used with upper levels as a lead in to discussions about immigration, racism, and the other.
