- Christine Reymond -

- A la Une : Riots in Paris

Sujet sensible! Doit-on en parler ou éviter le sujet? Quant à moi, c'est venu par hasard : je demandais aux élèves ce qui s'était passé pendant les vacances, pensant à Wilma, à l'Inde et à Rosa Parks, et le sujet est venu. Ils m'ont dit ce qu'ils avaient entendu aux infos, et on a recherché le vocabulaire... Au fait, savez-vous quelle est l'éthymologie de banlieue? N'est-ce pas un lieu où étaient envoyés ceux qui étaient bannis de la ville?
Ensuite, j'ai trouvé le viewpoint de Médine dans Time Magazine, et mes terminales, ravis, sont venus me proposer ses cd (malheureusement tous en français!). Donc c'est un sujet dont ils ont envie de parler, et tout déclencheur de parole est utile. Voici donc un peu de vocabulaire et quelques sites qui pourront vous aider à parler du sujet:

Vocabulaire et les faits
Voici quelques site qui présentent les faits, et le vocabulaire qu'ils utilisent:
- Les 'banlieues' ne peuvent correspondre au simple mot 'suburbs' qui désigne dans les pays anglo-saxons des zones résidentielles de pavillons habités par les classes aisées. Les journaux utilisent 'poor', 'impoverished', 'working class', 'immigrant-concentrated', 'restive poor' ,'poorer high-rise' suburbs, 'impoverished housing projects'(US), 'poor neighborhoods', 'bleak urban housing estates' , 'high-rise housing estates' (UK), troubled housing estates (BBC), 'outskirts' et parfois 'banlieues' ou 'cités' lorsqu'ils rapportent els paroles de français. J'ai même trouvé 'largely Muslim ghettos' dans The Times.
- les deux jeunes dont la mort 'triggered the riots' 'were electrocuted as they hid in a 'power substation' (US) or 'electricity relay station' (UK) while apparently 'fleeing' police;
- the cars were 'torched' , there were 'rampages' and 'arson attacks hopscotched around the country';
- 'In an attempt to guarantee public order', 'the government announced emergency measures including 'curfews' and permission to 'conduct searches for weapons without a warrant, ban public meetings and order house arrests' and then it 'enforced a ban on gatherings that could threaten trouble' in Paris 'because of tip-offs from internet';
- 'Fire bombs' or 'Molotov cocktails' were thrown at a 'mosque' in Carpentras, the police used 'tear gas' in another one;
- The ' demonstrators who have thronged the streets' are called 'youngsters', 'youth', 'rioters', 'attackers' 'troublemakers', 'arsonists' or 'vandals'.
Voici quelques articles qui relatent les faits:

Qui est Médine? Le commentaire le plus intéressant que j'ai trouvé est sur ce site où vous pouvez aussi écouter des extraits de son dernier album : "Jihad, le plus grand combat est contre toi-même" :
"Nous croyons au départ à un album promouvant la culture musulmane, mais c’est de ce (sic!)tromper que de comprendre cet album dans ce sens.Au contraire cet album pose un regard objectif sur le monde actuel.Certes la culture musulmane de Médine est perceptible sur ses textes mais il ne s’en sert que pour éclairer (et bien) notre savoir franco-français. Les textes sont d’une rare qualité narrative."

Pour le prof    [ Haut ]
- Can You Trust Wikipedia?

Une lectrice me faisait remarquer que je faisais parfois référence à Wikipédia, mais était-ce une source fiable? Peu de sites sont 100% fiables sur internet. Les sites de Wikipédia que j'ai utilisés me semblaient intéressants et utiles, en particulier par les liens qu'ils fournissaient. Pour l'article de la une, j'ai aussi trouvé que l'article sur le rap et le hip-hop était utilisable : je n'ai pas de moyen de vraiment tout vérifier, mais au moins il est bien écrit, ce qui est assez rare sur ce sujet...;)
Le Guardian publie un article dans lequel il a demandé à des experts d'évaluer des articles sur des sujets qu'ils connaissaient. La note moyenne est d'à peu près 5/20. Donc Wikipédia n'est pas absolument fiable, mais on y trouve cependant des renseignements utiles parfois. Lisez l'article:

- Discovering Art

la lettre Riverdeep's Classroom Flyerdu 11 novembre nous propose ces sites où vous trouverez des leçons pour sensibiliser les élèves à l'art en explorant les oeuvres de certains artistes:

Drawing Trees with Emily Carr
Emily Carr was a famous Canadian artist, and elementary students can examine her works online and discuss her use of line and imagery. They will also create their own trees using bold, thin, thick, wavy, or straight lines, understanding how line can add to interpretation.
the lesson : http://www.kinderart.com/arthistory/emilycarr.shtml
her works : http://www.emilycarr.com/artcard.html and http://www.emilycarr.com/posters.html

Perspective with Georgia O'Keefe
Discussion questions will guide upper elementary students through a critique of Georgia O'Keefe's "Sky Above Clouds IV", a painting with immense dimensions and overhead perspective. Students will create their own bird's eye view sketches, paying attention to pattern, shapes, lines, and repeated color.
http://www.artic.edu/artaccess/AA_Modern/pages/MOD_FamAct3.[...]

Themes with Kandinsky
Students will be invited to carefully explore the themes and objectives in the Kandinsky Composition 8. Paying particular attention to color, students will discuss the "inner character" of things as compared to outer appearances, with mention of non-objective composition, emotion, essence, shape, and line. They will then create their own non-objective paintings, given the criteria they have discussed in class.
http://www.artic.edu/artaccess/AA_Modern/pages/MOD_FamAct3.[...]

Experimenting with Picasso
Pablo Picasso was certainly one of the most inventive artists of all time. Students will study Picasso's work, in particular his "Woman with the Yellow Hair", and create their own continuous line profile drawing of a class member. They will then create a cut-up collage after exploring Picasso's cubism techniques.
http://www.guggenheim.org/artscurriculum/lessons/collection[...]

Discovering installation art with Kabakov
When Kabakov was creating art in Moscow during the 1970's, only government-approved art was allowed. Because of these restrictions, Kabakov began an alternative art scene which developed in his apartment studio. His work evolved into installations, where he would create a habitat based upon a character, then add music, theater, poetry, sculpture, etc. Introduce your students to Kabakov's art and stories
with the viewing discussion guide here, and then use the "Art Explorations" to help your students create their own environmental model installations, incorporating literature (characters), art, and social sciences.

Dossier spécial    [ Haut ]
- Black History : Rosa Parks and Emmett Till

Rosa Parks est morte et a eu un enterrement national pendant nos vacances de Toussaint, mais il vous reste plusieurs occasions cette année d'utiliser ces documents:
- Montgomery, Alabama célébrera le 50ème anniversaire de son acte de refus le 5 décembre 2005;
- Martin Luther King's Day sera le lundi 16 janvier 2006;
- Février est chaque année aux USA Black History Month;
- vous pouvez aussi relier Rosa Parks à Emmett Till, au meutre duquel elle pensait quand elle a refusé de se lever. Le procès d'Emmett Till sera révisé cette année et deux films sont sortis sur le sujet (voyez le dossier après celui de Rosa Parks)
- vous pouvez aussi lier ce thème à celui du racisme dans le sud et au poème "Strange fruit" , voyez dans le Café n°65

Rosa Parks

Videos
- the CNN video about Rosa Parks, with interviews : a bit long, but just the beginning is enough (thanks to Gilles Siche on eteach)
http://mfile.akamai.com/12942/wmv/vod.ibsys.com/2005/1025/5[...]
- from Democracy Now : the journalist present her life and you can hear her April 1956 report of the event while watching her picture. But her voice is not very easy to understand and the video/audio file is very long. this video is for advanced students : there is almost no redundancy between the pictures and the script : when you see interesting pictures, the sound is just a song, and when there is the interview, there are too few images to illustrate what she says.
http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=05/10/25/1412239
you can read the transcript, watch the video or download the MP3 file.
- the National Geographic also features an interesting video, with references to the Jim Crow Laws and redundant images (thanks to Françoise Peyrissat on eTeach). There is no script.
Note : You will be able to transfer this video to a memory stick or burn it on a disk by researching a video file with the name "rosa" on your hard disk where it is saved after you downloaded it once.

Newspapers
Alyne Piazza had the excellent idea to make her students discover the event by working from the front pages of several newspapers. And the website she worked from : Today's Front page from the News Museum had the super idea to archive those pages (they knew we would need them!) and leave them online. So you can access 455 front pages from 47 countries presented alphabetically and just make your choice ( I printed 17 different front pages for each student in a half class (module de seconde sti) to work on a different, authentic and colour document.)
