Today I finished yesterday’s activity by posting up the mini biographies the students’ had created. I did a gallery walk and had them read each other’s papers. I asked them to underline any possible errors in the use of the imparfait or passé composé. For the most part, everything was correct. There were a few minor adjustments to be made, but overall, the activity went well. I also liked the fact the same image resulted in completely different sentences, and therefore, there were difference in the choice of tense. For example, some said: “Elle est allée en vacances pour la première fois en 1952”. Others said: “Ses premières vacances en 1952 étaient superbes!”
All in all, I think the activity went well.
