GRADE 7: FRANÇAIS

What your child is learning

In Grade 7, your child learns to:

  • use different ways to understand and check understanding including using knowledge from other languages
  • identify relationships between characters, causes of what happens and solutions to problems and share opinions and personal experiences, to show understanding
  • tell stories, express and justify opinions and emotions, write several paragraphs with an introduction, development and conclusion, and write a story where the links between the characters emotions and actions are shown
  • speak and write correctly with a focus on past, future and conditional verb forms

To find out more about what your child is learning, talk to their teacher. You may also refer to the Language Arts Practices: Orientation Guide for information regarding the program's guiding principles and recommended practices.

How your child is assessed

Your child’s progress in Français will be reported in three areas and may address the following questions:

  • Comprehension (Reading, Listening, Viewing):
    How well does your child summarize something read, heard or watched?
    How well does your child explain the relationship between characters in stories, discuss media influence and name techniques used by a presenter?
    Does your child read with a specific purpose in mind, make predictions, and use different ways to remember ideas and information?
  • Communication (Writing, Speaking, Representing):
    How well does your child give and support opinions and preferences and write to inform or to tell a story?
    How does your child revise, edit and improve his or her text by using different resources?
    How does your child use knowledge about French to speak and write correctly?
  • Critical Thinking:
    Does your child connect what he or she is learning with previous knowledge and experiences?
    Does your child explain responses to information and ideas?
    Does your child think about, question or change personal views or opinions based on views and opinions of peers or experts?

The information from each report helps you to support your child’s learning. You can use it to talk with your child and your child’s teacher about results, strengths, challenges and what your child will be doing next.
