What does the CEFR look like in my
classroom?
◦ L’ Approche Communicative
◦ La Perspective Actionnelle
◦ La Grammaire est enseignée en contexte

Define the communication goals for that class
◦ What am I going to have the students say to me
today?
◦ What problem will they solve?

Use a variety of groupings
◦ Have them work in partners, small groups, and
large groups
◦ Change this a number of times in a period.

Use a variety of “quick” strategies :
Réchauffement, Action et Consolidation

How to get my students to not ask:
◦ Comment dit-on…en anglais?

Teach them how to “talk around” an unknown
word by using other communication
strategies.

A reward system linked to an authentic
situation: Going to the Bank.
Students earn and/or are taxed “dollars”.
At a set time each week, students role-play a
customer and a bank teller to either deposit
or withdraw money.
Once a month, students take part in a class
auction and bid on items for sale.
