French


The French program at Madonna is a core program which means that students have a French class for a 75 minute period the same as all their other courses.  French is offered at both the “applied” and “academic” levels, as well as an "open" level for ESL students.  Students are required to successfully complete one Grade 9 French credit in order to graduate. The program provides students with opportunities to speak, read, write and listen to French, as well as learn about diverse cultures associated with French language.  In addition to the curriculum, students will be reading stories in a Literature Circle format as well as reading stories on their own to encourage them to read French outside of the classroom.  At the end of each unit students are required to complete a Rich Performance Task as well as write and present a French dialogue based on the grammar, vocabulary and expressions learned for that unit.  Our students are encouraged to use French when they are in their French class, as our goal is to make them comfortable communicating basic French with each other.

In the past, students have engaged in fun activities like a field trip to a French restaurant, the Art Gallery of Ontario, making and eating crepes, and celebrating Winter Carnival festivities.
