  • Superheroes 6e - Travail réalisé par Isabelle Beaubreuil (Ac. Limoges)
    "L’objectif, entre autres, est de développer l’autonomie des élèves dans la recherche d’informations et dans leur travail d’expression.
    Le but étant aussi de limiter les documents papier grâce à l’utilisation du site Genially.
    Les élèves seront amenés à travailler la compréhension écrite, le vocabulaire des costumes et des pouvoirs des superhéros ainsi que l’expression écrite.
    Les enseignants pourront trouver sur ce lien les documents nécessaires qui accompagnent le Genially ainsi qu’un descriptif de la mise en oeuvre :
