The standards-based EntreCultures program is all about teaching French language and culture to novice through intermediate students through the lens of interculturality. Students discover appropriate ways to interact with others whose perspectives may be different from their own by exploring the lives of real people from the entire francophone world.
In level 1, students build the language skills, personal attitudes, and cultural insights necessary to experience life entre cultures using French to connect with people and their own community. Vocabulary and grammar are presented in context. The online Explorer provides all audio-visual resources, scaffolding, vocabulary, and grammar reinforcement, including flipped classroom videos, with all activities tied to the Mon dossier to upload performance evidence.
EntreCultures 1 supports teachers in assessing what learners can do with the language they have acquired through three differentiated formative performance-based assessments and a summative IPA per unit. IPA-specific, analytic, and holistic performance rubrics accompany this series in print and online, so teachers and students can stay on track. Units are clearly organized with ample print and online student and teacher support.
