This course helps the French language development of Grade 11 French Immersion students. Students learn to understand, analyze and react to a variety of oral and written texts in French, such as in films, songs, poems, articles, stories, novels and documentaries. During the course, students communicate orally and in writing. They communicate in French to present and defend their point of view, to write dialogues and to summarize what they have read or heard.
This course also helps students to recognize and appreciate how learning French is useful for them personally, intellectually and socially. They also gain an appreciation of French media and of the contributions of Francophones in the French-speaking world of today.
For further information, speak to your child’s teacher or refer to Cadre commun des résultats d'apprentissage manitobains en français langue seconde – immersion (M-12) (in French only).
How your child is assessed may vary from school to school. Assessment will take place throughout the entire course. Written assignments (e.g. text summaries, dialogues, or opinions), oral presentations and the analyzing of what they read are some of the ways that your child may be assessed. Generally, assessment in the Français courses includes a final exam prepared by the teacher, the school or the school division. The final exam measures how your child communicates, as well as their knowledge of the course’s units and topics. The length, value and format of this exam may differ from school to school.
