Although I was only involved in resource production for this inquiry, not design or delivery (for which I was grateful, because languages are very much my weak point whereas Lucy, among her many other talents, is our language specialist), I found this a really interesting inquiry for several reasons.
It ran over a fairly long period (5 weeks) and went through several investigative phases – essentially looping back through portions of the cycle several times, using slightly different resources each time.
All resources were in dual language.
It replaced a pre-existing research exercise, so was a good opportunity to showcase the impact of the inquiry process.
It encouraged the use of human resources as well as books and websites, getting some of our youngest students to talk to some of our oldest about their motivation for studying French.
The ‘cut and paste‘ resources that I have uploaded were not used for this inquiry in the end, but I have shared them anyway because I think they are a good example of helping students to rank their conclusions in order of importance.
