A-level French Study Group 2021Watch
This is where you can chat to others students taking your subject as you prepare for any assessments or grading that your teachers will be setting you over the next few months.
What can I do in these groups?
Almost anything! If you need help with a certain topic, want to rant about something you are struggling with or just want to support students struggling, this is the place for you. We want these to be a useful place for everyone no matter what you're looking for!
What can't I do in these groups?
Asking or offering copyright papers is against our site rules, and so is taking conversation off-site to do these things. Any posts doing this will be removed. That's the only rule
Ice Breaker questions if you want to use them!
> What exam board are you on? (Vote in the poll as well!)
> How are your school assessing you in this subject?
> What are you aiming for?
> How are you currently preparing for your assessments?

Good luck with the next few months. Remember, ask for help, support where you can and together we can do this!
How do introduce the sources in my presentation? So is it like "for this project, I read an article by XYZ who said ABC"?
How do I reference any additional sources I've used in the conversation afterwords?
If anyone could give me some advice or examples I would be eternally grateful!
1. State your question/title and say the names of the two articles, where they come from, who wrote them and when they were published
2. Summarise the first source in a broad sense - just a basic overview of what it’s talking about
3. Summarise the second source in the same way as the first
4. Give your personal response (this is the most important part) so say whether you think the author is biased and what the tone/purpose of the article is (to entertain, to inform etc.) Its best to choose articles which disagree with one another because it gives you more to respond to in this section.
For example, for your topic you could choose an article which supports la réforme du bac (maybe a source which is linked to the government so there’s more bias?) and one which criticises it.
As for additional resources in the general conversation, I don’t think there’s a specific rule for how to do it but they would probably appreciate you to mention the name of the newspaper you’re taking information from but I doubt it matters that much. They are really strict about timing though so make sure you don’t go over the two minutes because they will cut you off.
Hope this helps and good luck!
