The French at the Olympics – Year 9 Assignment

I wanted to write a short blog about the Year 9 French that was due today. We asked the students to write their own question on the topic ‘The French at the Olympics’. The timing of the unit of work on sport couldn’t have been better! The students have really enjoyed their inquiry into the topic.

The method of presenting their research was important for this task. We ask them to present it in either and audio or visual (or both) way and NOT to use PowerPoint! They were given plenty of other options and it’s been exciting to see the results. I am putting them all on their Posterous blog for everyone to see. A nice application of the MYP theory of pedagogy and education.

Here are the task instructions so you can see all the presentation options. Year 9 Culture 2012 Notification
