CORRIGE

Pour le corrigé de l’interview d’Ali, consultez la vidéo sur le mystère de la médaille.

A faire : lire dans votre manuel la page 258, méthodologie « relire un devoir écrit » et assimilez les GRAMMY AWARDS DE LA GRAMMAIRE

Vu le peu d’élèves face à moi aujourd’hui, vu le déséquilibre des groupes, j’ai préféré faire aujourd’hui un échange fondé sur les réactions oralisées face à des vidéos dans la thématique des textes à lire.

Je rappelle qu’il y avait le texte de mardi « Disrespectful Gesture » donné en classe avec questions a et b à faire. Aujourd’hui, nous avons corrigé et fini les questions c et d.

Je rappelle qu’il y avait, comme devoirs pour aujourd’hui, le texte dans le manuel p.110 How The Star Spangled Banner Became a part of American Sports Culture à lire avec les questions TRAIL B (je joins en pdf ce texte) . Je n’ai pas corrigé ce texte en classe aujourd’hui.

 

Consultez tous les documents-supports fournis, et réfléchissez bien à l’axe de réflexion Sports & Society, Sports and politics, athlete and activist, etc. Je vous propose de m’envoyer, dans un esprit facultatif, un AUDIO (c’est une sorte de façon pour moi de faire cours avec vous à distance) entre 1min et 2minutes max, où vous exprimez votre vue (votre opinion personnelle) concernant le geste de Colin Kaepernick dans le contexte américain ; utilisez ce que vous avez lu, ce que vous avez vu, par exemple, les différences d’appréciation d’Obama et de Trump, la publicité, etc. En gros, que pensez vous de Colin Kaepernick et de ce qu’il a fait ? [à m’envoyer aujourd’hui avant 18h / je rappelle qu’il n’y a pas cours cet après midi]

Je posterai sur mon site et ici, un "cours écrit" (après avoir reçu des audios)

je n'ai rien posté car je n'ai reçu AUCUN audio facultatif

Devoirs à faire pour la prochaine fois:

Faire les exercices à l’écrit (recopiez les phrases en entier ! pas des bouts) de la page 112 sur Be + ING et le Pluriel (après avoir lu la grammaire)

Think of all the words you can associate with our topic « Sports AND Society »

Our issue:

What does American Sport tell us about the USA?

Americans love sports. From Baseball to football, basketball, ice hockey, golf and soccer, sports play an important role in American culture

They are a foundation of the School System.

They have become a multi-million dollar industry with followers all over the world.

At the same time, they have contributed to racial and social integration.

"Jamming with Dad" :

Saturday Evening Post Cover

Présentation Powerpoint (image)

décrire et interpréter / utiliser les outils de l'expression du contraste

WHILE the father seems to be playing classical music, the teenagers are probably bored

because they prefer to play rock'n roll music.

CONTRARY TO his dad, the son isn't fond of classical music.

The mom would like her husband to leave the boys alone WHEREAS he has no clue

he's boring them to death.

UNLIKE the father, the teenagers don't enjoy themselves/ have fun.

>Cyber-Seniors: image / voir la video

link the internet/elderly people

Seniors are learning how to use computers and how to surf the internet.

Their teachers are volunteering teenagers.

 

I think this project is great because it connects people: not only can elderly people

keep in touch with their relatives, but they learn new things while sharing quality

time with their teenage teachers.

 

A project to help the elderly

L'EXPRESSION DU CONTRASTE

Friday, September 18th FAMILY MATTERS : séance 2 + 2bis

Séance 2bis : suite "Generation Gap" Students Comments + READING 

autonomy/frustration/rules/respect

While teenagers are looking for more autonomy, parents focus on the respect of their rules, and this creates a lot of frustration.

 

conflict / agreements

Conflict often occurs between teenagers and adults; it's often based upon the development of individualism.

Instead of conflict, we should work on agreements.

READING TIME: "A Father & A Son" (worksheet)

homework: écrire les questions que pourrait avoir envie de poser le jeune homme à son père et qu'il n'a jamais osé lui poser

Séance 2 : rappels méthodologiques 

Picture Comments : 1/ description (+ 2/interpretation + 3/ analysis)

CAN + verbe de perception : I can hear… I can see…

We can see a teenage boy in the foreground and two people in the background, a man and a woman who probably are his parents.

The parents are looking at the boy but the boy is not looking at his parents.

DESCRIPTION > présent be + ing

He looks unhappy / sad / disgusted / upset / stressed Apparence : LOOK + adjectif

I think the relationship between the boy and the parents is not good.

 

VIDEO (trailer of the movie « Kings of Summer »)

 

The film shows the relationship between Joe and his father. Joe’s dad seems rather strict (as he tells his son « My house, my rules »), and Joe is fed up with him.

There is quite a lot of tension, so that Joe decides to escape from home / to run away.

He has a plan : building a house in the woods with his friends.

>he wants to build his house in order to have his own rules.

 

GENERATION GAP

What kind of gap is that ? an emotional/psychological gap

Young and older people differ on : values / ideals / attitudes / experiences

 

MISE EN COMMUN DU BRAINSTORMING:

Family Matters…but does it ?

Does family matter to you ? to teenagers ?

Yes, it does… but not as much as it used to matter whan we were younger…

Consequence > the Generation Gap !

There’s a lack of trust between teenagers and their parents ; sometimes, teenagers feel the need to lie in order to have more freedom. But lying may worsen this lack of trust !

When teenagers have different opinions, another kind of world view, parents often have a hard time accepting it ; why ? because parents are reluctant to change…
