SUMMER REVIEW

Cyril Dussuchaud (Académie de Limoges) :
"Voici ma Summer Review 2018 pour 'liaisonner' en collège/lycée.
Je propose d'abord une activité de prise de parole rapide, avant de travailler de courtes C.O. avec 4 extraits de journaux télévisés.
La séquence se poursuivra avec de la C.E. via différents textes issus de journaux et magazines américains et anglais réadaptés.
Ceci afin de rapidement encourager les élèves à prendre la parole en continu pour résumer / expliquer aux autres l'information qu'ils ont choisie.
Le niveau visé en C.O. et C.E. est A2/A2+. Il en est de même pour l'expression orale, mais valider du B1 si la prise de parole est remarquable est envisageable.

BEAR LOOKING FOR HIBERNATION ACCOMODATIONS!

Bear Looking for Hibernation Accommodations Checks Out the Stanley Hotel - 25 August 2018
"The Stanley Hotel in in Estes Park, Colorado, is famous for inspiring Stephen King to write his novel The Shining.
But the evil spirits from King's imagination are not the only intruders bringing notoriety to the hotel.
A black bear wandered into the hotel lobby Wednesday night, possibly looking for a room, while 300 guests slept through the invasion.
The bear climbed on the furniture while a desk clerk stayed very still and recorded part of the encounter.
After a while, finding the service unacceptably slow, the bear left on its own."
