Any ideas of a real whizz-bang lesson to impart PDOs in a French lesson would be very welcome....
Explain that all avoir verbs used to agree with the object. Then get pupils to do some examples as a dictation one word at a time. It's annoying because you can't do the agreement with the normal word order. Apparently that's why it was dropped - scribes didn't like to mess up what they'd already written when it was dictated. BUT if the object somehow got in front, then they could do the agreement.
Apart from that, just tell them it's there to make them look better than other pupils in the exam so they should pay attention and get it sorted.
If you join the MFL teachers lounge or the Global Innovative Language Teachers on Facebook, you'll probably get a lot of responses. I'd respond if I had anything whizzbangy, but my mind went blank!
I would suggest that many native speakers don't know how to manage them either)

True enough. Also, I was once shown a flashcard designed by a teacher-adviser which had the caption "elle s'est brossée les dents" - I kid you not.
