About the lesson plans:
This set of Nous Sommes Flex Plans includes lesson plans and materials for 8 days of instruction plus a simple Interpretive Reading assessment. Lesson plans and materials are provided with instructions for FOUR (4) kinds of learners for every day in order to streamline planning:

  • IN CLASSROOM STUDENTS: for daily classroom instruction
  • LIVESTREAM AND SYNCHRONOUS STUDENTS: for students that are attending class from home, either streaming in to classroom instruction or attending classes that are led by the teacher on virtual platforms such as Zoom.
  • ASYNCHRONOUS: for students that are working independently on virtual assignments from home.
  • PRINT ONLY: for students learning remotely without Internet access

All learning strands are fully synchronized so that all students in the course will be working through the same material, at the same pace, regardless of the instructional strand that they have chosen.


The NOUS SOMMES Flex plans offer a simplified version of the lessons from the original Nous sommes curriculum. Because many teachers will now be juggling multiple strands of learners, including learners in virtual spaces, it is important to keep the content more consistent and predictable for both the teacher and the student. The original Nous sommes plans include a much wider variety of activities and go more in-depth with cultural exploration.

Teachers that already own the Nous sommes curriculum can continue to follow the original lessons for traditional classroom instruction. These teachers may choose to purchase Nous sommes Flex and follow the Flex plans for Hybrid and Virtual learners.

Teachers that do not already own the Nous sommes Curriculum may choose to purchase only the Nous sommes Flex plans for the fall of 2020. The Flex plans are not dependent on the original plans in any way. Purchasing both the original Nous sommes materials and the Flex plans will allow teachers to access the full depth of the curriculum with learners in the Traditional strand.

  • I have the traditional unit for this one so I was very happy when the flex unit came out. I like to pick and choose the activities from both that work best for my students and I.
