Teaching tools adapted to fit student of various high school French levelshave been created for a selection of poems by Guillaume Apollinaire, Romain Darchy, Jean Farré, and Henry Jacques.
You can find teaching tools on the following nine poems:
Through a variety of educational activities, the teaching tools help students put the works of the poets into perspective, gain a deeper understanding of the stakes of war, as well as acquire new French language skills. For each poem, you will find a series of teaching tools adapted to French students of different levels.
The teaching tools above have been made possible by Emily Levine, student at DePaul University, and Francine Beissel, professor of the French language at Centre de Linguistique Appliquée.
