HOW THE KITS WORK
The kits supply you with everything you need to cover a theme. You work with your students through increasingly complex activities leading to a final summative task. The activities are scaffolding towards the task. You do your evaluation on the task, evaluating parts along the way of completion.
The courses are designed to cycle between videos, texts and activities, and to cycle between language acquisition and thematic competency.
When you order a kit you also get the online kit. The online kit has the eBook version of the printed book, matching videos and activities.
You can also purchase online only kits and a subscription to access all the kits and all their content online on Planet French (over 400 videos, articles, ebooks, kits, activities…).
