NoodleTools offers several different tools to aid with research. NoodleTools Express creates reference citations using MLA, APA, and Chicago/Turabian forms. Choose a format style from different citation type options such as newspaper, website, or book. Enter information into the template provided. Copy and paste the citation into your project or word document. NoodleTools MLA Lite contains limited citation options for elementary or middle school students. Account creation is necessary for this option requiring a user name and password. Citations created will be stored in your account for future reference. NoodleQuest narrows down and defines research topics. Use check boxes to indicate needs such as type of results desired (expert, primary sources, etc.), timeliness of information required, and media requirements. Your choices define the best search strategies for your topic along with suggestions for getting started. Be sure to also check out the extensive Teacher's Resources found on NoodleTools. This area contains links to many different research and literacy tools. One item of interest to many is found in the 21st Century Literacies portion. Find the Information Literacy portion then select "Choose the Best Search Engine for Your Information Need." Here you will find a list of search engines that are best for different types of searches such as finding background, searching controversial topics, and finding quality results. Other items in NoodleTools include a Curriculum Collaboration Toolkit and The Ethical Researcher (Tools for Teaching Academic Integrity.)

This is a nice collection of Java applets which provide a variety of practice and quiz material on French and French culture. The contents could be used throughout the year as you cover specific material. From Quia.
In the ClassroomThis site provides a wealth of review links, activities and lesson plans that would assist any French teacher greatly! Some of the review games would make excellent learning centers, so save those as a favorite on a classroom computer and allow students to use them towards the end of a unit. There are also some quizzes that could easily be used for practice on the interactive whiteboard or projector.
