Instructions

In preparation:

  • Explore the interactive website and IDÉLLO series.
  • Review episode 1 Naesha and download the PDF Fiche à l’écoute that is linked, which includes ideas for activities, strategies, and assessments.

Minds on Activity

  • Show learners the carte du monde from the interactive website Là où je dors | TFO (laoujedors.com). Explain that each star represents a region where French speaking youth live and that they will be giving us a glimpse of their rooms and details about special objects, their personal lives, their interests and cultures. Explore the “Chambre” tab to see some interactive photos and one page overview under “son histoire”.
  • . Next, have students make a list of personal objects and memories within their room
    that represent who they are. Get students to share their list in groups of two, and
    then whole class.

Action

  • Explain to learners that the aim of the activity is to compare their personal interests and their background to those of a child from another country. Select episode 1 Naesha for viewing.

First viewing: Students will watch the video to understand the overall message. They will observe visual clues: the landscape, the external part of the house, facial expressions.

Second viewing: Students will try to understand by observing more details. They will watch
and listen to identify cognate words and words which are familiar to them. They can take notes. If necessary, students may watch the video a third time and the teacher may also stop the video at key moments to facilitate understanding.

  • Students will then use a Venn diagram to compare their lifestyle with that of Naesha.
    For example: love for life near the sea, important objects within their room, important
    people, nicknames, sports or hobbies, electronic gadgets

Consolidation 

  •  In groups of two, students will share their Venn diagram and their understanding of the video. Refer to the À l’écoute downloadable guide in French for more in-depth details on this
    process.
    Ex: Épisode 1 : Les élèves utilisent un diagramme de Venn pour comparer leur style de vie à
    celui de Naesha, par exemple: aimer vivre près de l’eau ou non, les objets (…), les personnes (…),
    les surnoms employés, les sports ou les passe-temps pratiqués, les appareils électroniques
    utilisés. Ancrer en groupes de deux, les élèves mettent en commun leur diagramme de Venn.
    Elles et ils réfléchissent à leur compréhension de la vidéo. 

Questions de réflexions:

  • En quoi Naesha te ressemble-t-elle et comment est-elle différente?
  • Qu’est-ce que tu as appris à propos de Haïti en regardant cette vidéo?
  • Pourquoi est-ce utile de faire des liens entre les pratiques culturelles de ta propre
    communauté et celle des autres?
  • Chaque élève écrit une carte postale à Naesha et compare son style de vie au sien

Reflection:
