Students have an opportunity for enrichment by viewing this PowerPoint on Paris. It is available early in French 1 and is of sufficient depth that it is in English for these students new to French.
There is significant text for those who read well. An abundance of images appeals to the visual learners. The narration is helpful to the auditory learners. Students who respond well to the unusual and quirky enjoy the “locks” on bridges slides.
They are encouraged to respond to what they find new and interesting in the early history of Paris. They can also point out what aspects of the city itself they find most engaging. Most will want to comment on the romantic idea of the”locks” on bridges placed there by those in love.
