Supporting the SDG’s in Language Acquisition

During the grade 10 1st unit of Advanced French under the theme of “Media and Society”, we explored how “Social & Individual bias can be changed through the creative use of media”.

To do so, we learned how advertising campaigns are made, investigated persuasion and other language features that help us convey messages and convince people. The final product of this unit was a publicity campaign for a SDG of student’s choice.

The results were of excellent quality and deserve being shown.

Here are some of the students’ thoughts and works about the importance of doing this kind of project:

“…these type of projects are important to do in french class because while it helps us expand our french vocabulary it also informs us about real life current events that is happening in our generation. It helps us because these are real life problems and we will be able to discuss it in french”

“this is an important project because it is a fun way for us to learn about the SDGs, and raise awareness about them. We are able to apply our French skills to something that matters in the world around us so that we can make a difference”

 

And what they’ve learned:

“I was able to develop my skills and practice using language to persuade an audience. I carried out methods that we learned to create an advertisement and also describe one afterwards.”

“I learned new vocabulary words and sentence structures. I also learned about the general attitude toward my topic in the francophone world.”

“I learned about the SDG quality education. I inquired into how this SDG is relevant in francophone countries in Africa. I learned that many children around the world do not have access to a quality education, and I learned many factors as to why, especially in Africa. This project educated me a lot about education related issues, and it also helped me see how I can spread the word and make a difference.”
