Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

French

I am looking for new ways that blended learning can be used to teach French so I decided to create a blended unit on French weather. This unit is designed to be used in a beginner level French course to introduce vocabulary and to draw comparisons between the weather of France and other countries.

Students in French 3/4 had a difficult test coming up. In an effort to review the grammar in a new and different way, I applied for an educational license with the scavenger hunt app, Goose Chase. Students downloaded the app, got into teams electronically and I started the game at my computer. Students were led by clues to locations around the school where I had placed signs.

Students will spend time using a teacher-created Microsoft Sway to learn new vocabulary. The Sway will give them English and French translations of the vocabulary, as well as an audio clip of the French pronunciation. Students will also be introduced to French dating culture via short readings and YouTube clips.
