IBD French

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by sunflower, Dec 12, 2009.

  1. When I taught IB French B, we used a couple of A Level books and pretty much wrote our SoW around the A Level topics. For writing tasks, we wrote our own essay titles and incorporated those into our teaching. I also used past IB papers and made a list of essay titles, and we practised reading questions from there too. I found that there was more flexibility and freedom teaching the IB and I loved it. Your new school will send you on an IB course as you start teaching it, or at the end of your first year of teaching. I got my (then) job without any IB experience. I was told that as long as I could teach A Level (which I was already doing), then IB wouldn't be a problem.
  2. I teach French in IB School... I teach in PYP, MYP and DP... in DP French is taught as language A1 / A2 / B and ab inition...

    You can refer the book Elan -1 / Elan-2 and for ab inition you can use envole or tricolor-1/2... which I found good...
  3. The IB have just produced a book for French and Spanish B (sadly, not German) which is tailored to the new IB curriculum. It's called IB French/Spanish course companion.

    It is quite well laid out, with interesting activities, but unfortunately a lot of the articles they present would make me die of boredom before even reading them, so I complement it by worksheets I create myself/songs/videos/films, etc. However, I like the fact that the book links French/Spanish to CAS and TOK and has some great differentiated activities for higher and foundation.

    I really recommend it!
