  • Limericks
    "Cette séquence Limericks au niveau B1/B1+ est proposée par Laurence Bernard (LPO Montgérald, Le Marin) et a été initialement prévue pour une classe de 1ère dans le but de remédier à un schéma accentuel trop souvent calqué sur le français. 
    La séquence  peut être  adaptée au collège, selon le niveau des élèves.

    Au fur et à mesure de sa conception, il est apparu que les limericks pourraient être d'excellents supports pour aborder d'autres aspects de la langue que le seul aspect phonologique, et c'est ainsi que d'autres fiches ont été conçues afin de proposer aux élèves tous les éléments nécessaires à la réalisation des deux tâches finales, l'une écrite (écriture de son propre limerick), l'autre orale (récitation).

    La séquence requiert l'utilisation des tice et propose des ressources en ligne écrites, sonores et audio-visuelles.
