DOCUMENTS sent by Bernadette Croze (Ac. Grenoble)

- Un powerpoint (en français) sur un batiment peu connu "The Tear of Grief"  ou "La Larme" offert par les Russes aux Américains
en commération des Attentats du 11 Septembre. Je  l'ai adapté et m'en sers pour la voix passive. 

Document de Bernadette Croze :
"Le ppt que j'utilise avec mes élèves de 3ème sur "The Tear of Grief" :
J' aborde avec mes élèves la voix passive avec ce document. Je ne  donne aucune information au départ, au fur et à mesure,
ils devinent ce qu'est ce monument.  Et certains d'entre eux s'en servent pour l'épreuve de l'histoire des Arts.
Lors d'une deuxième heure je me sers du discours que Bill Clinton a prononcé le jour de l'inauguration : il est court et assez facile
(sauf quand on entend l'avion !) Avec les bonnes classes, je le fais en compréhension orale, avec les  moins bonnes, je donne un simple texte à trous."



- Toujours concernant  the World Trade Center, j'ai préparé un 2ème document sur the USS Ship New York
dont la proue a été faite à partir de 7 tonnes d'acier récupérées du WTC.

 

- Dans le cadre de la protection de l'environnement le 29 mars les capitales vont éteindre les lumières de leurs monuments les plus célèbres pendant une heure. Je fais un projet avec mes élèves leur demandant eux aussi de faire quelque chose pour la planète à cette heure -là. Nous allons écrire une lettre au maire de notre village pour lui demander de participer à "Earth Hour" aussi.

TECHNOLOGY / TV SERIES

Black Mirror "is a British television anthology series created by Charlie Brooker that shows the dark side of life and technology...
Charlie Brooker explained the series' title to The Guardian, noting: "If technology is a drug – and it does feel like a drug – then what, precisely,
are the side-effects? This area – between delight and discomfort – is where Black Mirror, my new drama series, is set. The 'black mirror' of the title
is the one you'll find on every wall, on every desk, in the palm of every hand: the cold, shiny screen of a TV, a monitor, a smartphone."[1] "
+ List of Black Mirror episodes
(Wikipedia)

Black Mirror microsite at Channel 4
"Charlie Brooker, the writer of E4's Dead Set, returns with a suspenseful, satirical three-part mini-series
that taps into collective unease about our modern world."
