TESTS: The French 4 test on cathedrals AND The French 3 quiz on qui, que, dont are both now postponed until Monday. (And, this Friday, February 1, is an A day.)
PLEASE NOTE: Thursday and Friday are both now A days. Both tests mentioned here will remain on the days posted below. See you demain !
Français 3: TEST on Friday on qui / que / dont (short test). We will have a little more practice in class on Thursday. If you missed class today, you missed about 25 minutes of the movie.This movie is not just entertainment, it is the base of our whole history unit. So, if you missed class today, I urge you to go here, to rent the movie for $2.99, from Amazon Prime, if you have it. If you watched yesterday, then you can start at scene 9, and watch about 30 minutes at least, of the movie.If you can't watch at home, you'll need to arrange to stay after school and watch the 30 minutes that you missed, with me.
Français 4: Our test is postponed until Thursday (if anyone is absent Thursday, we will still have the test, and absent students will need to stay after school with me to take the test. Today, we began our new unit, so if you were absent today, you will still be expected to take the test on Thursday, since you didn't miss any more class time with that unit.)
Français 4: I have a family emergency and need to be with my husband.During class today, please look over the note sheets in your packet, to familiarize yourself with the vocab words. Then, go to my post from last Friday, and do both of those 2 Quizlets that I linked to, numerous times. THEN: Go to our QUIA page, and practice with the two activities there... same info, different kinds of activities. Do a self video (or two or three). AFTER YOU HAVE SPENT 25 MINUTES TOTAL, ON THAT: Split yourselves up into 3 groups, and play hangman with each other, with this vocab. You MAY have notes out, of course. Use the board if you want to-- you can erase anything other than the objectives for my three classes. (Check back here tomorrow, in case I am not here tomorrow.) Merci!
Francais 3: 2nd Hour Only: Using the Medieval vocab sheet (even though we haven't finished going over all of it), pick any 25 words, and use them, in context, in a franglais sentence (that means that the vocab word or phrase itself, must be in French, but you can use English as much as you want, around it). Highlight or underline the target French word. Here are some specifics:
• nouns must also have a French article with them (but, be careful... if you put "un" don't also put "le" or "mon"... likewise, if you want to say something like, "my" or "his" or "her" just use that in French, too.
• verbs need to be correctly conjugated in some tense
• adjectives need to show "agreement"
• be careful to be sure that you include enough in your sentence to make it clear what the word means (for instance, if you wanted to talk about un sofa, it wouldn't be enough to say, "I have one", or "There's one in my house" or "Ours is yellow". Instead, say something like, "When three of us sit on notre sofa in the living room, to watch TV, it's nice and comfy."
3rd Hour Only: There is a worksheet you will get from the sub.
Français 4: You will get a worksheet with a set of questions, regarding all kinds of things that were presented in the video you watched on Thursday. You should get back into the groups of 3 or 4 that you were in on our first day of this unit, and discuss together to see if you can come up with the answers (and all write them on your papers). You may also ask people from the other groups, if you are stumped, and you may use information from the note pages in your Cathédrales packet. Additionally, feel free to access the video within your groups, to try and move around within it to see if you can find the information. Here, again, is the link to the video. Remember that you have to be logged in to your PHS Google account (only), to view it. Do your best to answer as many questions as possible (chocolate may or may not be involved when I see how well each group does!), but, don't worry if you simply can't remember or can't find some of the answers.
If you end up feeling that you've done as much as possible, and there is still class time left, look at the two (seriously beautifully drawn ) images that I drew for you, and labeled, of elements of a Romanesque and of a Gothic cathedral (in your packet). Then, work on the vocab related to it, with these two Quizlet activities: French words, with Images • French vs English words
Aeeda: I am uploading the question sheet here, and you have to watch all of the video (linked above), and answer all of these questions. You will need a full hour or so to do this.
Français 3: No homework.
Français 4: For the three of you who were absent today:
FIRST: Log out of ANY gmail/google account you have, and then log IN to to your PHS gmail account, so that you can see this video:
Then, go to this video (10 minutes)
You may recognize it, because we watched just a few minutes of it in class, but now you need to watch the whole thing, doing these tasks:
• Notice how the big seated figure of Jesus, in the oval in the center of the space above the doors, is seated... his legs are wide apart, bent at the knees. They were trying to show that he was seated, but didn't know how to show that properly. Here's info to remember for a test: In this earlier style of church, the Romanesque (or le style roman, in French), there is ALWAYS a seated Jesus figure, in an oval, in this half-circle area above the front doors (this area is called the tympanum , and the oval area is called the mandorla ).
• The sculptures in the tympanum of this church (it is in Autun, France), are depicting "The Last Judgement"... the bible tells us that this is what happens to a person's soul when they die... they are judged by God (or Christ) to decide if they were good or bad while on earth... bad ones will be sent to Hell, and good ones sent to Heaven. Usually, on Romanesque churches, all of the sculptures tell stories that are meant to scare you into being a good person, to make you afraid of Hell. On Gothic churches, the sculptures are meant to be beautiful, to show you how beautiful Heaven will be, so that you want to be good, so you end up in Heaven.
DURING THIS VIDEO (write these down, to show me, Thursday.... Aeeda, EMAIL this to me BEFORE Thursday):
• How would you describe the overall look of the beings that are part of this carving? (ex: tall and skinny? squat and fat? scary? serene? very natural looking? etc.)
• What is happening on the left side of Jesus, and what is happening on the right side of Jesus?
• Take a screen shot of one of the angels.
• Take a screen shot of one of the demons.
• Tell whether the souls going to heaven are dressed, or naked
• Take a screen shot of the pair of big clawed hands, pulling at the head of one of the damned souls
• Write the name of the carver of the stone (starts with a G....) [they mention this and discuss it, in the later part of the video]
• Write the Latin words that he wrote on the lintel (the long space under the tympanum), and what they mean,
• Take at least 4 screen shots of carvings in this area, and tell what the video says that they are about (just do your best).
