2 Welcome to Acti-Vie! Acti-Vie is a three-level, core French program designed for students who are initiating their studies in French. As the name suggests, it is an active program, based on real-life experiences. FLEXIBLE In response to the realities of today s classroom, Acti-Vie offers a unique and flexible design. The program is packaged in a modular format; each unit is a self-contained thematic entity. Although six units support a full-year program, there are eight themes provided per grade level, allowing for Board, school, teacher and student input in establishing a successful, high-interest program for individual classes. In addition, a variety of practical program features are included to support the teacher in adapting to special classroom situations, such as varied backgrounds of students or combined grades. Through this model of flexibility, Acti-Vie can easily accommodate a four-level program. By combining units in creative ways, teachers will discover that there is enough material and linguistic challenge to suit the needs of four years of instruction. MULTIDIMENSIONAL Acti-Vie is a program that has its roots in The National Core French Study, which was founded on the notion of the multidimensional curriculum proposed by H. H. Stern. Directed by nationally recognized scholars in the field, the Study incorporates input from provincial representatives, as well as the latest research on second language teaching and learning. Completed in 1990, the Study revolutionized second language programs throughout Canada by establishing the need to have students work toward experiential goals in structured units and by proposing that curriculum models be multidimensional. COMMUNICATIVE & EXPERIENTIAL Acti-Vie encourages students to learn a second language by living real experiences in that language. Students develop comprehension skills and learn to negotiate meaning. They produce written and oral texts in a variety of real-life contexts. Acti-Vie fosters awareness of, and sensitivity to, personal culture, a second culture, our multicultural and intercultural society, and to the world community. Acti-Vie introduces language in context and teaches the student to reflect on its use. The program is designed to help students become aware of the types of strategies that can increase their ability to communicate and survive in a second language. It also encourages students to learn how to learn through strategies that increase their ability to make connections with their previous knowledge and make mental links between concepts and content. NATIONAL Acti-Vie, a national program, was created after a thorough review of Canada-wide curriculum documents. Its featured experiential goals, themes and outcomes reflect the requirements of all provincial guidelines. In addition, its creative team reflects the national identity talented teachers and consultants from across the country actively participate in the authoring and reviewing of all program units.

4 Program Goals Acti-Vie has two main goals. Firstly, the program is intended to help teachers in their task of teaching a second language using the communicative/experiential approach. By providing the tools necessary to guide students through this process, Acti-Vie can help them to develop their receptive skills (listening, reading and viewing) and their productive skills (speaking, writing and representing) in a second language. Secondly, Acti-Vie proposes to educate the student by building knowledge in several dimensions of experience. Students learn about real subjects and participate in hands-on projects that support their general education. Through this program of purposeful learning, students interest level will subsequently increase as they perceive the meaningful aspect of the program content. The experiential goal in each unit isdesigned to encourage students to communicate in French, and its motivation is enhanced by the need to acquire language to complete the final task. Through Acti-Vie, students learn language in contexts that reflect different real-life situations, thereby enabling them to discover interesting cultural realities. In addition, students discover aspects of the learning process by reflecting on how they learn; they make links with previous knowledge and with other curriculum areas. The intrinsic educational value of Acti-Vie is such that it broadens and expands students experience and thus contributes to their overall general education. Acti-Vie Program Guide 4

15 15 Acti-Vie Program Guide Exploring a Unit

16 Sequence of lessons Lesson One serves to introduce the entire unit and to personalize the theme and contextualize the experiential goal. It also informs students of the steps that will be followed by the class to reach this goal. In addition, the first lesson generally includes an activity which is itself the first step leading to the experiential goal. Lessons Two through Seven or Eight comprise the steps leading to the final task. These lessons each focus on one or two of the following aspects: reading, writing, listening or speaking. Each of these lessons provides the building blocks needed for the student to be able to complete the task successfully. The penultimate lesson is always the Final Task lesson. It includes detailed instructions on how to complete the final task successfully as well as suggestions on how to modify it if necessary. All worksheets and organizational materials needed for the final task are also found here. The last lesson of the unit is a collection of summative evaluations. It includes at least one summative evaluation activity for each skill area, as well as one selfevaluation activity. These activities are similar to those that students have encountered throughout the unit. Suggestions on how to organize the evaluation session are included in this lesson. Each activity is given specific suggestions related to its content, its focus and whether it should be a group or individual activity. Also included in this lesson are grid evaluation charts needed for the activities in the summative package, as well as a Global Evaluation chart that can be used to record evaluation activities throughout the entire unit. Experiential goal Each unit is built around an experiential goal that relates to the students lives. While working on a unit, students learn to analyse the components of their goal and consciously monitor their readiness to accomplish the final task successfully. The way in which each unit is organized enables students to focus on their own learning and ensures that they are using language in a real way in preparation for their task. Content and number of lessons The program units contain nine or 10 lessons, depending upon the theme s experiential goal. Since elementary French programs throughout the country vary in terms of time allotted to French (from 45 minutes each day to 20 minutes three times a week), Acti-Vie is structured to allow you to by-pass one or two lessons per unit. In the overview of each unit, you are informed as to which lessons can be eliminated. Some adaptations in the material may be necessary if these lessons are omitted. Suggestions for modifications are included, as is an indication of what may be missed in terms of experiential and linguistic learning. By including nine or 10 lessons and by suggesting options for adaptations, the units are suitable for most classroom situations. A summary of outcomes, materials, skills and links to the curriculum are all included in the Unit at a Glance chart located at the beginning of each unit s Teacher Resource Book. Acti-Vie Program Guide 16

17 Special Features Language Boards Language Boards are a unique feature of Acti-Vie. They provide the teacher with various options for integrating language learning in the unit. Each unit has 30 to 40 Language Boards, each one representing a core vocabulary word or structure from the unit. Whenever applicable, the board has an accompanying visual cue to help students understand the word or structure. The same visual will also appear in a much larger format on the reverse side of the board. Language Boards are produced in a simple blackline master format and are included in all modules making them accessible to all teachers. You may wish to have students colour the visuals to enhance interest and appeal. They can be laminated, mounted onto colour-coded Bristol board, or both. In instances where Language Boards with accompanying visuals are to be used, you may wish, for the sake of visibility, to prepare photocopies of both sides of the board and fasten them together or at least display them together when they are used as initial presentation material or when they serve as a visual dictionary on classroom walls. The Language Boards serve many purposes and can be utilized in a number of ways. Throughout the teaching notes for each unit, you will discover many uses for Language Boards: to aid in student comprehension, as tools for playing word games or preparing warm-up activities, as elements for creating graphic organizers, etc. Integrated phonetic activities Many Acti-Vie units integrate phonetic activities. These activities build on sounds that are present in songs, chants, comptines or other oral documents. Phonetic activities help students become aware of sounds that are typical in French and of combinations of letters that make up certain sounds. Authentic music Every unit contains authentic music related to its theme. Sometimes the songs serve as background music to be played during activities; other times the music can be part of a Supplementary Activity that requires a simple recognition task of the students. The authentic music complements each theme and exposes students to music listened to in real-life situations. The authentic music also helps students become tolerant of listening to words that they don t fully understand. Learning to accept ambiguity is an important habit to develop as a second language student. 17 Acti-Vie Program Guide

18 The Introductory Unit The introductory unit, Découvrons notre école!, is the only obligatory unit of the Acti-Vie program. It is expected that all first-level students begin their language studies with this theme on school. This unit has been designed to introduce students to the study of a second language by having them discover that many different strategies, in addition to language, can be used to help an individual communicate. The gradual discovery of some basic communication strategies permits students to succeed in understanding and communicating at this early stage in their language development. Their subsequent successes will encourage them to take risks and apply these kinds of strategies in later units of the program. This constant building of communication tools will assist the student in becoming aware of the nature of language and communication as he or she acquires more language. In addition to introducing strategies, this unit also introduces the basic language of the classroom and the school, numbers, simple greetings, expressions of feeling and requests for permission. These basics are the tools the student needs to make French the language of the classroom as early as possible. Subsequent units of Level 1 of Acti- Vie build on the language presented and acquired in Découvrons notre école! A unique feature of this unit is the accompanying video component entitled, Bienvenue à l école! This innovative tool is designed to reinforce the communication strategies emphasized throughout the unit and takes the form of a home video of a boy s first day at school. Students watching the video learn to look for facial expression and gestures and learn to listen for tone of voice to infer meaning. They also learn to listen for cognates and words they know in the second language in order to understand what is going on. Aside from Découvrons notre école!, all units in Acti-Vie are completely selfstanding and, within each level, may be presented in any sequence desired. Acti-Vie Program Guide 18

19 A Guide to Planning Planning a Balanced Program Balance is a key factor in creating a successful program. In order to achieve balance, there are many elements to consider: dimensions of experience skill emphasis language cross-curricular integration seasonal appropriateness varying final tasks mandated curriculum requirements student and personal interest Dimensions of experience Acti-Vie offers units based on the five dimensions of experience physical, social, civic, leisure, intellectual proposed by the National Core French Study. It is important to ensure that, over the course of the three levels of the program, students have had an opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in each of these dimensions. At the elementary level, the social dimension takes on a dominant role in the curriculum, but it must not preclude the other dimensions. For that reason, you may have a tendency to select more than one unit from the social dimension while still including units that provide experience in the other dimensions. To ensure an appropriate balance of dimensions, refer to the Overview Charts on pages of the Program Guide when selecting units. Skill emphasis Another factor to consider when carrying out long-term planning is to include final tasks with varying skill focuses. Although each unit includes lessons that focus on the different skills, the final tasks are usually based on oral or written work. This is the nature of a final task: to culminate in the production and/or completion of a project. In some units, students prepare an oral presentation supported by visual representations and dramatizations; other units have a writing focus where students prepare a written document such as a brochure, a scrap book or a magazine. Still other units stress group oral participation during social activities or games. A wide range of final tasks helps to motivate students. Remember to include a certain amount of variety to stimulate student interest and to offer opportunities to develop the different skills. Language Language content can also play a role in the selection of units for the school year. Certain topics and language structures are required by various school jurisdictions. Acti- Vie includes most of these required topics and structures. The language outlined in the 19 Acti-Vie Program Guide

20 Overview Charts on pages and the Language Outcomes identified at the beginning of each unit can help you organize your program according to the specific requirements of your ministry or school board and your class. Spiralling and overlapping of language is a major feature of Acti-Vie and should also be considered during unit selection. Take, for example, the units studied in Level One. Vocabulary related to celebrations is encountered in both Souvenirs de ma famille and Bonne fête à tous!; physical descriptions occur in Au jeu! and again in Les aventures d A-V. Imperative structures are found in Bonne fête à tous!, Au jeu! and in Bonne collation, bonne nutrition! Dates and numbers are integral to Découvrons notre école! and Bonne fête à tous! Gender, colour and agreement of adjectives are found in Logosanimaux as well as in Les aventures d A-V. For a more detailed outline of how grammar spirals throughout the three levels of Acti-Vie, consult the Summary Chart of Acti-Vie Language on pages Cross-curricular integration You may wish to choose certain units in cooperation with your colleagues, e.g., a unit such as Au jeu! may be introduced when the physical education teacher stresses games, and one such as L environnement et moi may be introduced when the science teacher addresses environmental issues. In fact, topics that relate to virtually every subject taught at the elementary level are explored in Acti-Vie: math; science; language arts; dramatic arts; social studies, including history, geography and multicultural studies; music; physical education, art; health and nutrition; technology. To facilitate curriculum coordination, refer to the Overview Charts on pages or to the Unit at a Glance chart that appears at the beginning of each unit s Teacher Resource Book. Seasonal appropriateness When selecting units, consider the appropriateness of specific times of the year for certain themes. For example, if it is difficult to obtain the use of the gymnasium in your school, you may wish to complete Au jeu! in the spring so that students can play Tag outside. Fêtons l hiver!, obviously, would work best in the winter months. Et maintenant la météo might be most effectively taught in a season when a variety of weather conditions prevail. Varying final tasks You may wish to consider the scope of the final task when scheduling units. Each level in Acti-Vie offers a variety of types of final tasks, some more involved than others. Some tasks, such as making a frienship cube in Vive l amitié! or creating a comic strip in Les aventures d A-V are easily undertaken and will require little or no change to your class schedule or classroom set-up. Au café and Que le spectacle commence!, on the other hand, may require some reconfiguration of seats and tables, some additional movement on the part of the students, and perhaps even some modification of your normal schedule. You may wish to alternate these types of final tasks. Mandated curriculum requirements To ensure that specific board and provincial curriculum requirements are covered, contact your Prentice-Hall Ginn Canada representative for the appropriate provincial cross-reference chart.
