The report, entirely in French, describes Alberta's curriculum for first-year French immersion, as revised in 1994. An introductory section offers background information on the curriculum revision, links between the core curriculum and French immersion, underlying principles of second language instruction, the revised curriculum's objectives and organization, notes on its implementation, and discussion of student autonomy and evaluation. A subsequent section provides a summary of program aims and priorities and performance objectives for each skill area (listening and reading comprehension, oral and written production, and appreciation of the French language). Appended materials include notes on French language teaching techniques, a discussion of immersion instruction, and an overview of integration of instructional materials at the early elementary level.
