Goals of Social Studies:
The main goal of social studies is to develop thoughtful, responsible, active citizens who are able to acquire the requisite information needed to consider multiple perspectives and to make reasoned judgments. The social studies curriculum provides students with opportunities as citizens to critically reflect upon events and issues in order to examine the present, make connections to the past and consider the future.

Writing: Plan, revise and deliver full French sentences and paragraphs with few spelling or grammatical errors.
Reading: Gather and organize a body of information, note-taking, asking questions when something is unclear, Gator notes
Research: Learn to use different search engines, website and books. Produce a bibliography.

Evaluation and Assessment:
En français s’il vous plaît!
It is imperative that students speak in the target language in order to practice and improve their language skills. Students must do their best to speak to each other and the teacher in French during their one hour class. This evaluation will be worth 10% of the overall grade for each term.
0 No effort made to speak French. Constantly being reminded but disregards the rules.
5 Mediocre effort: Speaks to the teacher in French but rarely does so with classmates and rarely uses French during discussions.
10 Excellent effort: Speaks in French the moment he/she enters the classroom. Encourages classmates to do the same by continuing to speak French even they speak English back to her/him. Tries very hard to always speak French.
Students will self-evaluate their effort by choosing a number from 0-10 at the end of each month with an explanation beside their number. Students and the teacher will meet to discuss performance and evaluation.
