|The Francais Interactif program has been my go-to resource for concise grammar explanations, clear pronunciation, relevant video activities, and a great source of partner speaking activities. Standard textbooks are often disappointing, but the FI program had enough partner activities and other resources that it was easy for me to focus on the 3 modes of communication in my class while still imparting correct grammar usage. In addition, it saves the school money and made it easy for me to switch textbooks without needing to advocate a large part of the budget to it.|
I've created many complementary resources for my students using FI. These include using things like Quizlet, Quia, and recorded videos.
On Quia, I've created self-graded internet-based activities based off of the Francais Interactif program for my students. I've also created over 60 auto-generated self-graded internet based activities which draw from a bank of questions, making it possible to have an unlimited versions of a given quiz. The ones I've been able to share so far are under the advanced search. Go to this link and then under "Category" select "French" and under "Textbook/Resource" select "Francais Interactif". https://www.quia.com/shared/search?adv_search=true&tagFromShared=true
On Quizlet, I've put all of the FI vocabulary for studying. https://quizlet.com/mpanter/folders/french-vocab-from-fi/
Also, I made video explanations for my students about every grammar point from chapter 4 to chapter 13 in the FI program. My plan is to make these available on YouTube.
Paper-based resources: I made my own quizzes, tests, and speaking/writing assessments to complement the material.
During the summer '18 I plan to share the resources I've created so that other teachers who use FI can benefit on: flippedfrenchclassroom.wordpress.com
