Les Projects: une boutique

The students have been paired up into groups of two or three and are working to create a boutique. As part of this project they have to create or find a male and female outfit (that reflects the style of their boutique) for six different occasions: a wedding reception, first day of school, hiking, beachwear, soccer game and swag. Once they have created their boutique, they will be given random outfits from other boutique. They will be "given" euros and must go "shopping" and engage with their classmates completely in french.

Dialogues: Fashion Runway

As part of this unit, students will also be participating in a runway show where they will be showcasing their favorite outfits. Their dialogue must be memorized and will be graded on their fluency, flow of conversation, grammar and sentence structure and their pronunciation. This is the first of the dialogues where props are required.
