The Franco File.
Boucher, Norman; And Others
This teaching guide accompanies 10 half-hour television programs designed to improve the self-esteem of Franco-American children, 9-13 years of age. Each episode explores a specific area of contemporary Franco-American life in a northeastern mill town. The characters discover that their ethnic heritage and identity are often in conflict with life in America of the 1970s and 1980s. By working to resolve these conflicts, the characters discover the richness and validity of their Franco-American culture. The ambiance is bilingual and bicultural. The following materials are included for each program: (1) the learning objectives; (2) a summary; (3) notes on cultural or historical background; (4) questions for classroom discussion; (5) suggested follow-up activities; and (6) a list of teacher resource materials. Brief descriptions of the seven main characters are also included. (FMW)
