Product Description CONTROVERSES is built around the goals of the National Standards and French thought (including point/counterpoint/synthesis), presents timely and provocative issues that are important to the French and francophone world, and is relevant to today's students. This student-centered, advanced intermediate French program is geared toward the communicative, analytical classroom. The high-interest topics and well-crafted activities presented in the text stimulate conversation and thoughtful debate in the classroom, foster students' conversational skills, and encourage students to learn and practice the language. Each chapter provides students with the opportunity to express themselves verbally and in writing while systematically addressing each of the 5 Cs.
