French Lesson Plan

Introduce your students to the charming and poignant world of "L'Argent de Poche" (Small Change) with our comprehensive French lesson plan. Directed by François Truffaut, this film beautifully captures the joys, struggles, and complexities of childhood, making it an excellent tool for language learning and cultural exploration.

François Truffaut gives us this incredible tribute to the joys, yearnings, pains, and wonders of childhood. In the quaint French town of Thiers, the streets abound with the sound of children laughing and playing. While most of them deal with such simple issues as puppy love and attending school for the first time, some don't find life quite so easy. The hungry ones play upon the heartstrings of neighbors for supper and the lonely ones cause trouble for attention. But when the truth behind one little boy's petty thievery is revealed, a shockwave is sent through this picturesque town that helps everyone finally see the children for who they truly are.

Using "L'Argent de Poche" in your classroom not only enhances language skills but also provides insights into childhood experiences and societal themes. This lesson plan includes structured activities, discussion questions, and cultural notes to enrich the learning experience. Explore our comprehensive film-based lesson plans and engage your students in meaningful ways. IMDB
