My students need magazines written in French so that they are able to practice their reading skills. Reading about things that are interesting to them is important.
One of the challenges of being a language teacher is the lack of ready resources that are at an appropriate level for my students. The students need to practice reading and learning through a variety of resources. These magazines will allow the students to read about topics that interest them.
My students are an engaged group of children who want to learn about the world around them.
They have selected French as their language of choice and they will spend three important years working on fluency in the middle school. Many of my students are struggling readers who can use the reinforcement in French of their reading skills in English. Fortunately, we have a large number of literacy strategies built into our curriculum at school. Unfortunately, the stories we teach are getting old. Adding novel reading materials will keep the students engaged in reading. Our school is a caring place that is working hard on making each student an academic priority. We have many interventions for students, their success really is taken personally by our staff. I am fortunate enough to loop with these children, so I really know them well by the end of their middle school years. What amazes me is how much their world view opens up simply by learning a new language.
A building goal is for us to work on literacy with all of our students. These magazines will allow the students to read materials about topics that are both current and designed for students their age. The language level is appropriate for middle schoolers and the content is, as well. These magazines allow us to examine grammar in context while learning new materials. They allows us to read a real example of how adjectives can be used in a story and to look at subject verb agreement. They also allows us to examine cultural differences between France and the French-speaking world and the United States.
The use of these magazines will allow my students to see current and valid culture from another country.
They will also give my students confidence because the level of writing is appropriate for the age for my students, rather than reading from a newspaper or a magazine that is not designed for their age group.
