Inside France: Three Missing Pages from Your Students' Textbook.
Conniffe, Patricia, Ed.
This mini-unit seeks to fill the gap in textbooks that exists when teaching about modern France. Many textbooks end their coverage of France with the chapter on World War II. This unit offers high school students a unique introduction to France in the mid-1990s. The mini-unit includes a two-sided poster, teaching tips, and student pages. Student pages include: (1) "The Nation in Profile" outlining France's economic and social achievements since the 1950's; (2) "The Impact of Recent History identifying current political trends and events in France; and (3) "Current and Emerging Trends" examining evidence that the French culture includes elements of both tradition and change. Objectives are to: (1) introduce readers to a major topic within the study of contemporary France; (2) provide data and resources for launching research on this topic; and (3) suggest questions that might guide further research.
