Instructional Resources

This supplementary part of the website provides links to subtitled versions of the videos so instructors (and self-learners) of even beginning levels can focus on more detailed analysis and comprehension. The lesson plans also include more detailed instructions regarding how to use these materials in class and short grammar lessons linked to the content of the videos for each 110 and 120 unit. In order to facilitate customization to meet individual learning goals, materials are provided in editable Microsoft Word (.doc) documents. The 230 and 240 units do not have detailed lesson plans, but we do provide access to a page with subtitled versions of all videos so instructors can quickly access them in class to build on work students have done at home and to allow more specific linguistic analysis at the more advanced levels.

These materials are provided at no charge, but are restricted to registered users. Users who would like access are asked to contact Keah Cunningham for log-in credentials.

French à la mode is designed to be a "work in progress," and we welcome suggestions for improvement. We also encourage users to submit additional content modules to provide greater breadth and depth to the curriculum. Accepted submissions will be fully credited on the site and our technical staff will work closely with the author to customize the look and functionality of each module. If you can provide the content, we will handle all the technical details of getting your work online.
