AP French Language and Culture Curriculum Framework
Essential Questions
• In a thematic approach to instructional design, essential questions
guide classroom investigations, learning activities and performance
assessments. They may provide topics for project work, take-home
essays, and in-class debates, for example.
• Essential questions allow students to investigate and express
different views on real-world issues, make connections to other
disciplines, and compare aspects of French-speaking cultures to
their own.
• Essential questions should capture students’ interest, inform the
selection of authentic materials to use in class, and help students
consider the course themes across time and across cultures.
