French--Core Program. Senior Level. Youth Education: Teaching Guide No. 22.
Nova Scotia Dept. of Education, Halifax.
The curriculum guidelines for the high school level of Nova Scotia's core French program, intended for students planning to attend college or certain other postsecondary programs, are presented. The four basic language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) are integrated into all phases of classroom activity and the ability to function in French without resorting to English is encouraged in areas of Canada where French is the usual language of communication. Another program objective is a basic familiarity with French Canadian culture, primarily through literature, history, and current events. The guide outlines the overall elementary-secondary program structure, nine broad program objectives, the intended levels of development for each of the four skill areas, research and notes on student motivation and attitudes, suggestions concerning the development of student skill areas, the program's treatment of grammar, the curriculum's culture component, testing and evaluation objectives and techniques, and notes on grouping and individualization. Suggested classroom activities and a bibliography are appended. (MSE)
