Activity for Civilisation Francaise: The Way Things Were

Activity for Civilisation Francaise: The Way Things Were

In this longer activity, students will first read a biographical photo essay from Civilisation Francaise, a website in French about the way things used to be in France. They will observe the use of the imperfect indicative tense to talk about habitual past actions and descriptive passages in the past. Students will reflect on the passage and then write their own photo essay, using the imperfect appropriately. They will also learn about French culture in the process.Activity authored by Laura Franklin, Professor of French at Northern Virginia Community College, to be used in conjunction with the original website Civilisation Francaise by Marie Ponterio, SUNY, Cortland. The site is a MERLOT Classics winner.
