Modeles de rendement langagier--Francais langue premiere: 8e annee (Models of Linguistic Production--French as a Native Language: 8th Grade).
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Language Services Branch.
Aligned with its 1998 standards for first- and second-language learning, Alberta Learning has published lesson plans that aim for a closer relationship between learning and evaluation. Each volume in this series presents a specific task for students that involves planning, carrying out and evaluating their work. The task for eighth grade students who are native speakers of French is to compose a text presenting the problem of violence among today's youth. The guidebook has four parts: a Teacher's Guide, Student Materials, Examples of Student Work, and Pedagogic Notes. The Teacher's Guide introduces the objectives for the project in terms of the research and writing process and the content of the lesson, specific guidelines for introducing and directing the writing process, and grading criteria. The Student Materials include directions for the project as well as pages for note-taking, organization, revision, and evaluation. The third section presents examples of students' notes and essays followed by an evaluation of the writing sample and the grade it would receive. Finally, the Pedagogic Notes include goals and principles for the teacher to keep in mind throughout the project, notes on the levels of linguistic production and sophistication of ideas that students should achieve at the intended grade level, and an analysis of the thinking, writing, revising and evaluation process from the Examples of Student Work.
