Updated for 2013 Exams
IB Curriculum Aligned*

IB French B includes varied interesting and entertaining learning activities that are specifically designed to prepare students for the IB exam. With over 325 pages of material, the exercises in IB French include: recent press articles from the francophone world—Africa, France, Canada, Belgium, Vietnam, Maghreb etc.; IB style text manipulation; multiple interactive activities reflecting the francophone world; listening comprehension of authentic and diverse francophone speech; and, an exploration of international cinema and literature and issues of human and social interest in the form of analysis, debate, lexical memorization, games and individual presentations. Appropriate basic grammatical review is included and multiple writing and speaking ranges (registres de paroles) are addressed as recommended by the IBO.

New alignments to the 2013 curriculum:
1. Each activities and lesson plans in the teacher manual have been labeled a) a Core, or 2 Optional, and b) to which of the 8 sub-categories they apply, mirroring the new curriculum.
3. Activities 1:13 on Social Networks and 1:14 on the use of cell phonea at school have been added to reflect the new curriculum focus on technology and social relationships
4. Sound files are provided on DVD to help your students achieve optimal pronunciation
5. Extended vocabulary has been added to activity 1:14 to reflect themes such as internet use, social networks and cell phone use
6. Each unit ends with an oral practice activity to mirror the format of the new 2013 oral exam, each based on visual stimuli (photo).
7. Some optional activities have been designed to reflect the new writing assignment based on newspaper articles ( with rationale, writing genre selection etc.

Book Review:

“The IB French materials are set up and organized so well. The PowerPoint grammar presentations are great, very clear and the students like grammar presented in this format. I do supplement with a grammar text but it is such a help to have the assessments already prepared. This is the only program or text that I have ever found that I could use for IB French classes without spending hours and hours of searching for appropriate texts and making up exercises to mimic the IB exam format. Thank you!” – Judith Wetsig, Binghamton High School , New York
