  • Les Compagnons : mini teaching guides 

    Every mini-magazine has its accompanying teacher’s guide. This guide contains 12 pages of suggestions to:

    • develop reading skills – Lisons !
    • develop identity and appreciate cultural diversity – Discutons !
    • improve oral language abilities — Jouons !

  • Kanata : je suis ici guides are a multi-purpose resource. The guides present options from which the teacher can set up a tailor-made learning plan for students:

    • reading activities that can be adapted to differing levels of language proficiency;
    • games aimed at improving oral French;
    • informative texts that render accessible specialized language relating to Social Studies or French programs

    All of the games featured in the Compagnons guides aimed at oral language mastery have reproducible material and coloured game cards that the teacher can print and laminate to organize interactive learning experiences with students (see Annexes). 

    L’oral réflexif et l’oral comme objet d’enseignement

    The Lisons ! and Discutons ! sections  of the Compagnons guides propose activities that relate to reflective oral language. We use language to:

    • express one’s thoughts
    • acquire new information.

    But to express one’s thoughts, one must know how to communicate effectively. Many students no longer benefit from Francophone linguistic models in their milieu. Oral language therefore needs to be taught at school just as written language is taught. The Jouons !  section proposes games that feature oral language as the object of teaching. Students learn to choose the correct word and to construct clear statements. Every communication game contains:

    • one or two language functions;
    • one or two grammatical notions.

    The Compagnon provides teachers with clear, concise and dynamic facilitation instructions for every game.
