Chansons et Chansonniers (Songs and Songsters). Teacher's Guide.
A resource kit for French instruction at the advanced secondary level is represented by a teacher's guide. A specific area of French-Canadian "pop" music is introduced to students of French as a second language. In order to acquaint students with aspects of this type of music, four French-Canadian "chansonniers" are discussed: Gilles Vigneault, Monique Leyrac, Georges Dor, and Robert Charlebois, along with certain of their most popular songs. These four are personalities who have greatly influenced French Canada since 1960 and who reflect French-Canadian society both in the subject matter of their songs and their singing style. The songs incorporated in the module have been chosen for their pertinent subject matter, straightforward French, popularity with the French-Canadian public, and the ease with which they convey various aspects of French-Canadian society to non-native French speakers.
