You have just watched a video about the Dharavi project. What do you think about it?

Try to give a balanced opinion :

"While I agree that ... I still think that ..."

"Although some might argue that ... I feel that ..."

"Despite the problems concerning....I still think that ..."

" (argument 1). However/Nevertheless (counter-argument 1)"

"I'm not sure what to think: on the one hand I feel that ...but on the other hand..."



"As Maxime said....Yet I feel that ..."

"I partly agree with ...when he says that ..."

Imagine you have met these people while travelling: give a quick Jack Kerouac style portrait of three of them, about 30 to 50 words each, no more. Think about their eyes, their look, their clothes, their cheeks, their hair, the position of their mouth, their possible age, their possible personal story...Use as many consecutive adjectives as you can, but most importantly talk about your first impression of them and how you felt about them on second thoughts, after looking at them closely. 

Use the comments section to submit your portraits.

While you wait to take your speaking text, I would like you to start watching War of The Worlds, which will feature in our next unit about 1950's Science Fiction in America.

Today the special effects used in this film are funny, but in those days, the film was seen as a scary movie!

So watch it, enjoy it!

Hello everyone !

People of your generation don't have any problems finding information! On the contrary, it has become more and more difficult to filter, summarize, prioritize and criticize all the various sources of information you can find on a given subject.

Here is a little activity that hopefully forces you to assess your sources. Remember that one of more sites in this list are unreliable, fake or extremist websites, and therefore cannot be trusted.

Here is what you have to do:


• write a summary of the main events of the Civil Rights Movement, which includes a short biography of MLK and Malcom X, as well as the significant events of the movement: the whole production cannot exceed 1 A4 page, Arial font 12, single space.  

• you can only use the websites given and highlight each extract in a different colour. An "extract" can range from one word to one paragraph

• you don't have to use all of the websites

• you can use linking words of your choice to connect two extracts (do not highlight these words)

 (15 points)


At the end of your research (not included in the A4 limit):

• decide which site(s) was fake or biased and what made you sure of it (URL/Address/Content/Tone...?).

• say what shows that the website you chose could be trusted (URL/Address/Content/Tone...?)

 (5 points)


History of The Civil Rights Movement 1

History of The Civil Rights Movement 2

History of The Civil Rights MOvement 3

History of The Civil Rights Movement 4

History of The Civil Rights Movement 5


Biography of MLK 1

Biography of MLK 2

Biography of MLK 3



Biography of Malcolm X 1

Biography of Malcolm X 2

Biography of Malcolm X 3

Biography of Malcolm X 4


Good luck. You'll see it's an interesting exercise that forces you to prioritise information while learning about American History.
