Do you like to travel? Do you like to share your travel stories with your friends? Do you like to talk about what you saw and what you did? How about the food? Do you like to tell people about the different foods you tried? If you like all of the above, you might want to explore the advertising and sales for a career. Let’s practice in class.
In our 21st century, much advertising and sales is done online. Pick the French region of your choice and read, read, read. Check out these sites and learn about your region’s tourist attractions, regional specialties, and hotels. Start to think about the wiki page that will create. Your job is to persuade the rest of us to come to your region.
After your initial exploration of these travel guides, print out your favorite web page. You will need it in order to complete the interpretive task.

Interpretive Task
Les guides de voyage


Assessment: Please refer to your interpretive rubric for a oral assignment.

Interpersonal Task
Invitez un ami(e) au voyage!
Your research about your region of France has given you the itch to travel. Ask your friend if he/she would like to take off for a week and fly to France. If he/she is reluctant, remember that you are in advertising and sales. Persuade him/her to come with you. Use specific details to tell him/her about the attractions, the regional specialties, and the hotel accommodations of your region. Maybe your trip will come true!

Assessment: Please refer to your interpersonal rubric for a oral assignment.
