French II SL

Student must meet the following criteria:

  • no significant skill gaps that would impede success in the setting
  • scored an A in all formatives and summatives
  • teacher recommendation required

This course incorporates the three fundamental concepts of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP): holistic learning, intercultural awareness and communication. 

A variety of engaging experiences will include but are not limited to direct teaching, projects, inquiry, discussions, peer evaluations, cooperative learning, differentiation, and practice through reading, writing, worksheets, games, songs, listening activities, and more.      

This course will introduce students to a variety of topics and vocabulary (daily routine, food and meals, health, childhood, relationships and  celebrations, technology, artistic expression and housing). Student work is evaluated according to the following IB assessment criteria: 

  • Criterion A: Listening 

  • Criterion B: Reading  

  • Criterion C: Speaking 

  • Criterion D: Writing 

In order to reach the end goals for each of the aforementioned criteria, students will complete the following tasks: at the end of phase 2 in reading comprehension, students will read and process between 400 and 500 words; in oral tasks, students will interact up to three minutes; in writing tasks students will write  between 100 and 150 words. These are just suggested minimums to keep students proactively engaged and perform at the level that will enable them to meet phase requirements to move on to the next phase.    

Although the textbook and its ancillaries will serve as the foundation of the course, various additional authentic materials will be used. The class is taught in French and students are expected to speak in the target language. This course teaches phases 1-2 of the MYP curriculum.
