CPF was working with some Middle School students and the local CILS French radio about 18 months ago.
You can find the x 4 Teen French programmes, Ca Roule shows on this dropbox link

These 4 shows were developed by CPF/Bayside for the local radio show CILS 107.9 FM

The teachers shared these with their students during Reading Time and others listened at home.  The goal was to encourage FI students to listen to more French.  We hope you enjoy them and perhap it might motivate you to produce your own show with your students or children.
