WHAT'S UP?

What's up? (.pdf) - Prise de parole en continu.
Travail proposé par Nathalie Baudouin (Ac. Versailles)
"Depuis de nombreuses années nous consacrons les cinq premières minutes de cours aux élèves:
ils présentent un What’s up? sur une personne anglo-saxonne de leur choix (pour le niveau 5ème) en s’aidant d’un diaporama, musique...
Nous le faisons de la 5ème à la 3ème. Ils adorent!
La fiche que j’envoie est distribuée en début de 5ème, donc très simple mais au fur et à mesure que l’année avance ils doivent réinvestir les nouvelles structures, ce qui fait qu’en fin d’année scolaire certaines prises de parole sont très intéressantes, longues et riches au niveau lexical!"
