The report, entirely in French, describes Alberta's curriculum for eighth-year French immersion, as revised in 1998. 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 study of the French language). Appended materials include an overview of French language teaching techniques, notes on the context of immersion instruction, and a discussion of the integration of instructional themes and strategies for secondary students.
