Getting to Know... Un sac de billes

Ready-to-use research tasks, worksheets, background information and practice exam questions ensure full understanding of this poignant, autobiographical work from Joseph Joffo. Students will get to know the novel inside out and be fully prepared for the AS and A Level writing exams.

Logical structure offers the perfect balance between guided classwork and independent study:

Students will consolidate their knowledge of the narrative through comprehension, translation, speaking and writing exercises. Includes dedicated section on analysis of structure, characters, themes, symbols, interpretations and critical reception
  • After: Useful phrases, exam-style practice questions and annotated model essays to help students apply what they have learnt – and refine exam technique!

‘The resource guides both the teacher and the student through the book in a structured and methodical way, using a variety of question styles and presentation methods. I feel students of all abilities would benefit from using this resource as it offers a thorough analysis and gives much background information. There are also frequent opportunities for students to think creatively about their own response to the work, expressing and justifying opinions, as well as suggestions for independent research.’ – S Webster, MFL Teacher and Independent Reviewer

‘The resource probably provides more than is needed to get a top grade at A Level French. It is the best “Getting to know” I have read and reviewed to date, better than also many others similar study aids on the market. I wish I had had such a resource when I taught “Un sac de billes”.’ – C Gaumet-Ducros, French Teacher and Examiner and Ind. Reviewer
