Newfoundland and Labrador Dept. of Education, St. John's. Div. of Instruction.
The second of three basic packages of materials for cultural instruction in Newfoundland and Labrador's elementary level French program builds on the previous unit covering the concept of various cultures and leads to the third unit's coverage of French Canadian culture in general through a study of nearby French Canadian cultures, in Newfoundland, Acadia, and St. Pierre. 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 5 course, notes on integration with material in other subject areas, notes on evaluation, and appendices. The grade 5 outline includes specific objectives for linguistic content and cultural understanding, basic content texts and materials, suggested enrichment content and other resources, teaching strategies, and suggested enrichment strategies. The appendices include outline maps of Canada, Newfoundland, and Labrador; descriptions of Acadian symbols and the Quebec flag; and notes to accompany a tape (not included) of French Canadian accents.
