Images d'Afrique (Images of Africa). Teacher's Guide.
The teacher's guide to a series of seven videotape recordings based on television programs of three African countries, Gabon, Cameroon, and the Ivory Coast, is for use in intermediate to advanced college level French courses. Its objectives are to: improve students' vocabulary, listening comprehension, and speaking skills; acquaint students with the culture of selected French-speaking African nations; accustom them to the variety of French accents heard in francophone Africa; and introduce an innovative use of video into the language-learning classroom. Three instructional units contain a total of seven modules, each consisting of a half-hour videotape and accompanying print materials from the teacher's guide. The first unit focuses on a dramatic serial from Gabon, in four parts, the second depicts a play set in Cameroon, in two modules, and the third unit focuses on a talk show and commercials from the Ivory Coast. In the teacher's guide, the videotapes are described and a chapter is devoted to each of the modules. Included in each chapter are: (1) a statement of objectives; (2) synopsis of the story; (3) cultural notes; (4) student materials consisting of pre-screening study sheets for vocabulary and cultural references, post-viewing exercises for comprehension, vocabulary, and oral and written situation topics, and quizzes; and (5) appendices containing answer keys and transcriptions. Suggestions for teacher use of the guide, lesson presentation, and activities are also included. (MSE)
