Big Ideas/Unit Goals:

The Louvre and the Muse D'Orsay: Exploring the long and complex history of these locations, including their origins, their evolution
into what they are today and more importantly their signficance to French and World culture today as well as the types of art that are
displayed in each.
Knowing vs. Familiarity: Exploring how information is transfered in the French language, specfically in the exploration of the verbs
"Savoir" and "Connatre" and the distinct purposes they serve and the aspects of knowledge they serve to communicate. As a part of
this we will be learning how to ask for this information and how to express whether we know or don't know something.
Art as the extension of the Self: Exploring how art can influence us as individuals and how it allows us to express our own inner
personality, our thoughts, our hopes and our dreams.
Art as the extension of the Society: Exploring how art can influence us as a society, effecting our cultural norms and perspectives and
how it expresses the feeling of a particular time or people, their traditions, their values, their hopes and their desires for the future.

Unit Summary:

How often do you look at art? Have you ever been to a museum? What sorts of things can you find hidden there? From where are these
pieces from and how long ago were they made? Who is the artist? Do we know who they are? If not why? If yes, who were they in life,
what made them be an artist and what does their art say about them as a person? What about the society in which they lived in? What
about their country? Finally what does the art we like, the perspective and interpretation we have about a piece of art and the feelings
that a piece evokes within us say about ourselves as individuals, the society we live in and the country we live in? These are all
questions we must ask ourselves as we enter any museum, any exhibition and as we take a look at the cultural artifacts left to us there.
This unit will engage you students in learning about art and culture in French, focusing in particular on the two most important museums
in Paris, and by some standards, the two most important museums in the world: the Louvre and the Muse D'Orsay, each holding
hundreds of years of art from not only France but around the world.
As the focus around this unit, we will be exploring both museums, learning how to ask for directions to get around the museum, how to

find certain sections and exhibits, how to ask someone whether they know information about an art piece or are familiar with the piece or
the artist and finally we will learn more about the history of certain art movements that can be seen in these museums, techniques,
themes and typical characteristics of art in these movements to work towards the final goal of this unit: learning sentences, vocabulary
and phrases to use to create your very own exhibit for an art piece you will choose and as a part of that detailing the composition, effect,
technique and other aspects of the art as well as details about the artist and your own personal interpretation and perspective about the
art piece you chose.
