The website has been developed by scholars and language educators at the University of Lethbridge. The mission of the Lethbridge Curriculum Developers (LCD) Group is twofold: 1) to provide quality resources to support French language instruction, and 2) to model how theoretical concepts can be translated into practice. The main emphasis of the LCD Group is the development of task-based materials (see Foundations section for an elaboration on task-based language teaching). To this end, the website includes clusters of task-based lessons and examples of tasks that fit within each of WillisÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ (1996) six types of tasks. The LCD Group is also dedicated to promoting intercultural communicative competence (see Foundations section) in the second language classroom and has included a section of activity ideas and lesson plans to demonstrate how intercultural themes can be embedded in and complement second language instruction. https://tbltfrenchresources.weebly.com
This module - consisting of 49 lesson plans, a personal dictionary, a personal language portfolio, a YouTube video, and handouts, worksheets, and other support materials - was developed to support teachers in introducing learners to the French language using a task-based approach. It is assumed that the learners participating in this module will have had minimal exposure to the French language and, therefore, emphasis has been placed upon developing learnersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ vocabulary, foundational communicative skills, willingness to take risks in communicating in a second language, and awareness about linguistic and cultural difference. The module could be used with any beginner group of young French language learners; however, explicit links have been made to the Alberta French as a second language (FSL) program of study to demonstrate how the module could be used to deliver French instruction to grade four students in the Canadian province. https://taskbasedbeginnerfrenchmodule.weebly.com
