Summary

These instructional materials are designed for students with some French reading skills and vocabulary in late beginning or early intermediate senior high school French. The objectives are to introduce students to a French newspaper, "Le Figaro," and develop reading skills for skimming, gathering specific information, and relying on cognates. The material is presented in six units adaptable to various group sizes. Specific learner objectives include: (1) scanning the front page for specific information; (2) designing a front page or comparing front pages of the French and American newspapers; (3) summarizing an article by skimming it; (4) noting the international tone of the movie listings; (5) selecting a movie to go to based on their descriptions; (6) selecting a job to apply for from the classified advertisements; (7) comparing American and French television listings and constructing a listing from the French model; (8) reading a French television listing to select programs in specific situations; and (9) deriving specific information from advertisements.
