Francophone migration: a resource for teachers and students of French based on the Immigration Museum of Melbourne’s exhibits.
Thanks to the MLTAV and the AFTV for their support and funding of this project.
The materials for this French education kit have been written and developed by Eva Anderson, Laurence Brottes and Sehanze Perbux, members of the AFTV.
These materials were developed in collaboration with Museum Victoria for use in schools and at the Immigration Museum, Melbourne. The Language tasks may be reproduced for teaching purposes. Permission to reproduce any material for other purposes must be obtained from Museum Victoria or The State Library of Victoria.
The French program Vers de Nouveaux Rivages, based on the Immigration Museum permanent exhibition, offers students and teachers the opportunity to explore the Museum collection of objects and stories about migration through French. All the texts in this exhibition are in English but the activities have been adapted for use by students of French. The activities contained in this kit will encourage students to reflect upon what it may have been like to leave one’s country of birth and migrate to another country with different cultural and linguistic features.
The French program Question d’Identité, based on the Immigration Museum permanent exhibition, offers students and teachers the opportunity to explore the Museum collections of objects and stories about identity through the French language. All the texts in this exhibition are in English but the activities have been adapted for use by students of French from Years 10 – 12.
Each museum-based activity outlines its purpose and skill. It is recommended that students work individually on a task or in small groups.
Students will also require a tablet or a Smartphone with headphones (for the listening tasks).
The program draws extensively on the information within the Immigration Museum. It also provides links for further investigation into related topics, including:
