Back to work!


Welcome and have fun!

Bonjour et bienvenue à tous !

Ce blog est ouvert à tous ceux qui veulent apprendre et/ou s'amuser en anglais, grâce à des jeux, des chansons, des vidéos et autres activités ludiques. La plupart des documents publiés seront en lien avec ce que nous faisons en classe bien sûr, mais pas seulement : ce blog est un lieu de partage. J'y afficherai des choses qui me paraissent intéressantes et/ou amusantes, comme des bandes-annonces de films, des clips, etc.

Vous pouvez également me contacter si vous voulez que j'affiche quelque chose que vous voulez partager avec vos camarades... mais attention : tout doit se faire en ANGLAIS Les commentaires en français seront effacés, et les messages que je recevrai en français ne seront pas pris en compte.

N'ayez pas peur de faire des erreurs, au contraire !!! C'est le meilleur moyen d'apprendre. N'hésitez pas à corriger vos camarades !

Have fun!!!

Here is the painting you may have to analyze for the exam:

The problem we all live with

"The Problem We All Live With", Norman Rockwell, 1964.


It has been inspired by a real event, a real picture:

Ruby-Bridges.jpgIn 1960, Ruby Bridges - 6 years old - was on her way to school after the case "Brown vs Board of education" (1954) ruled that segragation in schools was unconstitutional.

The disparition that exists between the black and the whites is nothing but undue ego that stems from insecurity. The fact is that each and every child has the right to a free and happy child hood. The constitution guarantees this.

Mister V. 27/12/2013 16:43

The constitution guarantees the "pursuit" of happiness ... which doesn't mean you'll get it. Anyway, inequality between blacks and whites stems from fear and insecurity indeed, but also from ignorance.

IT REMINDS ME OF GOOD MEMORY, i was very enthusiastic to work on this painting! Very good subject!

Mister V. 27/12/2013 16:36

Yeah, I remember we had a good time together studying this period of American history! Your reactions were very interesting!!!

By the way, I had The Problem We All Live With for "histoire des arts". I had Mrs Bataille and Mr Cassigneul for jury. It was so easy, I'm so happy and I'm waiting for a good mark !
It was a pleasure to present this picture and I'm ready to do it again you know 


Mister V. 15/06/2013 00:28

I'm really happy you enjoyed working on it. I heard you did a great job by the way! That's cool!

By the way I learned Malcolm X was watched by government and Nation Of Islam. I know Nation Of Islam is a violent organization who wanna defeat racism by racism (they are ready to hate white
people). Either Nation Of Islam didn't permit the fact that Malcolm leave their organization, either american government killed Malcolm (you know to be muslim and black at the same time is a
little dangerous for american people. I think)

Mister V. 29/05/2013 19:32

Malcolm X's assassination was weird ... But I don't think the American government had something to do with it... Being Muslim might be a little scary to a few Americans today (because of
terrorists - who pretend to be Muslim), but I'm not sure being Muslim in the 60s was a scary thing... I don't know actually! But it's just that being black was enough for a few racist people to
kill a person (sadly).

Bunyemin Saltas 22/05/2013 17:37

We spoke about racism, segregation, KKK... Then we spoke about Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks(thank you sister Rosa Parks... ), Malcolm X... I think our final test was very fun (I had a 20 ! ). It was a way to remember to the class
that segregation (racism also) is stupid ! Thanks for all Mister V

Mister V. 29/05/2013 19:27

Yes, our talks reminded the class that segregation is ridiculous, indeed. I found it interesting to work on that part of American history with you and your class, that was great!

Bunyemin SALTAS 18/05/2013 15:52

I really enjoyed "The Problem We All Live With". If you don't know this picture or if you're gonna work about it in class, you can be sure that a looooooooooooooooooooooong debate is waiting you.

Mister V. 18/05/2013 23:13

I'm glad you liked it!

What debate are you talking about ... ?
