After a while, lecturing and saying “Repetez apres moi/em” can lose its effectiveness with students, especially in middle school. Instead, reinforce their learning with a hands-on project about the lesson you just taught! Twenty independent units cover all of the basic concepts taught in middle school French, such as food, clothing, time, families, etc. Each unit features a vocabulary list, a communication activity, and a crossword puzzle to get them thinking and talking, followed by a unique hands-on activity to get them busy integrating the material they just learned.
