French as a Second Language. Ensemble Culturel 1, Grade 4. Teacher's Resource Book.
Newfoundland and Labrador Dept. of Education, St. John's. Div. of Instruction.
The first of three basic packages of materials for cultural instruction in Newfoundland and Labrador's elementary level French program introduces the notion of many world cultures. The materials are intended to complement materials already in use by teachers, and are a response to teacher requests for direction in teaching culture. The teaching guide contains a discussion of the role of cultural education in the elementary French program, a list of 11 general goals of the three "Ensembles Culturels," an outline of the grade 4 course, notes on integration with material in other subject areas, and notes on evaluation. The grade 4 outline includes specific objectives for linguistic content and cultural understanding, basic content texts, suggested enrichment content, and teaching strategies. An appendix contains a teacher's guide to the principal textbook, "Learning About Peoples and Cultures." For each chapter, the guide offers a list of the main ideas and notes on their relevance to the grade 4 program. The units that follow this guide build on its content through study of nearby francophone cultures (Newfoundland, Acadia, St. Pierre) and French Canadian culture in general. (MSE)
