Cyril Dussuchaud (Ac. 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.
