Niveau avancé-travail sur des articles de journaux- coût-gratuit

 
En visitant Paris cette semaine je me suis souvenu de l'existence de directmatin, journal distribué gratuitement dans les gares et stations de métro. Relativement facile à lire et comprenant de nombreux articles et faits divers, courts ou longs, cet attrayant journal  a plusieurs atouts pour les profs de français.  Oui, le matériel pédagogique ne manque certainement pas en ligne,  pourtant en ce qui concerne les actualités, l'édition française a imposé soit l'abonnement soit le paiement par édition (applis) ce qui rend l'accès coûteux.

Coïncé debout dans l'entrée d'un fourgon de métro avec une trentaine d'autres passagers  je n'ai malheureusement pas pu profiter de la largesse des distributeurs de directmatin.   Heureusement, depuis des années directmatin (avec toutes ses versions régionales) est disponible sous forme de pdf sur le site directmatin http://www.directmatin.fr/editions-pdf et ceux qui possèdent un smartphone avec un écran convenable peuvent télécharger l'édition de leur choix et la lire dans leur petit coin du métro (ou même au petit coin) s'ils possèdent assez de forces pour garder leur équilibre en s'accrochant au strapontin avec leur main libre.

Comme vous le verrez en consultant le lien ci-dessus, on peut accéder à des éditions antérieures en utilisant le calendrier à droite.  Il suffit de cliquer sur la date pertinente pour voir toutes les éditions de la date sélectionnée.  
 
Approche personalisée
Avoir accès à des journaux entiers est un vrai atout, qui permet aux étudiants de jouir d'un produit authentique grâce auquel ils peuvent trouver des renseignements sur les thèmes qui les intéressent:- jeux, cinéma, foot, mode.
 
Interactivité
En ouvrant le journal dans le logiciel adobe acrobat reader on a accès à des outils qui permettent de créer bulles à paroles et régions colorées dans le texte avec des commentaires qui deviennent visibles en cliquant dessus.  En faisant ceci on peut ajouter une explications des mots, poser des questions ou repérer des thèmes.

FEEDBACK FROM 2018/19 FACE TO FACE CPD SESSIONS IN SCHOOLS AND FIRST WEBINARS

In late 2017, 2018 and 2019 I have carried out many sessions in schools around England generally with about 10 delegates.   The sessions have concentrated on analysis for the cinema essay question, analysis for the literature essay question and incorporating oral work into lessons and preparing the Individual Research Project from the start of the course.

The courses are accompanied by a booklet to take away as well as all an online repository on the dolanguages site for the templates for the various exercises featured and useful links.

Trial webinar-12th February, 2019 and webinars for real 5th-7th March 2019

No et moi webinar

  • First of all I wanted to say that I really enjoyed it! I had never done such a session before, and was quite apprehensive at first.
  • I enjoyed being able to express my views in the chat function, and also to interact a bit with the other participants.
  • Your voice was very calm and clear and easy to listen to.
  • I liked that the whole session was in French.
  • I think the booklet is very comprehensive with lots of great ideas which I will definitely use with my students.

Kiffe kiffe demain webinar

1.  Thank you for an insightful and illuminating webinar commentary and presentation. I felt simultaneously inspired and reassured. 

I think that the practical activities you suggest in the booklet, including grids, tables, practice titles etc., will help the students to analyse. One of the major challenges I face is the lack of group dynamic, so setting practical work always helps them to discuss the task.

2.  Thanks Steve. I really enjoyed yesterday. I felt like I was actually learning something myself which was super.
