Mind mapping

Je viens de recevoir un petit mot d'une élève qui est désormais dans le supérieur et qui ne se souvenait pas du site que nous avions utilisé pour faire des mind maps.
Une excellente opportunité d'écrire un petit billet sur le sujet !
Tout d'abord : qu'est-ce que le mind mapping ? Réponse ici sur le site de l'Académie de Martinique !
Mais quel site choisir ?
Mon outil préféré est Popplet qui permet de créer des mind maps extrêmement facilement et rapidement !… Visit the author's original post

EdYOUfest

Ne pouvant pas me rendre à EdYOufest, Madeleine Zapata-Boxberger a gentiment proposé de présenter quelques uns de mes projets. Voici le diaporama qu'elle utilisera en avant-première :)

Eric Price’s interview. By Noah.

Today was a great day again for our “Seconde” class. We have interviewed the charismatic American author, Eric Price. We have learnt very much about him, and about what he thinks and feels about literature. He has on this day written 2 fantasy novels, many short stories and articles. He has been living in the south of the U.S. for a few years, with his wife and 2 sons. Besides his writing he also helps his wife working on her family farm.… Visit the author's original post

David Atkinson’s Skype Interview. By Noah.

We have once again Skype interviewed a great author! This time, it was the poet David Atkinson, an inspiring Irish author. Through a short Skype interview, he has presented himself, his life, his art and his philosophy. Accompanied by a journalist from the “Journal Du Dimanche”, and a photographer, a lucky half of our class have experienced this delightful moment.
A few questions we asked him:
What is poetry to you?
- A poem to me is a creation, art, “the best words in the best order”.… Visit the author's original post

Cathi Unsworth’s Skype Interview with my students. By Lila.

Curled light blonde hair with a swirl of black held with red and green barrettes… an amazing author answered our questions, while France 3’s TV crew filmed our every move. Another great Skype interview, this time with the charismatic Cathi Unsworth.
"How do you come up with the titles of your novels?"
“Most of them come from songs”, she told us.
"What message do you try to convey through your stories?"
She speaks up about what the bullies make others go through, she wants to spread tolerance.… Visit the author's original post

Cyane’s visit. By Kostia

Sometimes, you have great opportunities which are offered to you and you really don't want to let those pass. I believe that our class with the French author Cyane was one of those great moments you never forget in your life. He is a great writer and is a passionate man and he believes in what he does and that is something great to see when you're a 15-year-old teenager. At first,I thought that the project was simply translating a book but once he explained to us what the purpose of this project really was, I was shocked.… Visit the author's original post

Skype Interview of David ARENSTAM, American author. By Louise.

On February 28, our class had a Skype interview with novel author David Arenstam. This American writer started by introducing himself to us. David Arenstam is a Massachusetts-born author, he started off his professional life by creating his own data processing company, but soon abandoned that job for something he had dreamed of for years: teaching English literature and writing. This quick presentation was followed by getting to know more about his book than we knew from the extract we had read.… Visit the author's original post

New author blog post! David Arenstam tells us about his love for literature!

It is a great honor to welcome David Arenstam on my blog!
We actually met last April in Saco when my students, my colleague, Mr Tabary and I were visiting the school.
When I read his short stories, I immediately asked him to join my lietrature project!
THANK YOu so much Dave for accepting!


Writer, writer, who wants to be a writer?

The question was so simple, and for me, so complicated. For most of my adult life, I owned and operated a small software and data-processing firm that specialized in providing technology solutions for small banks and credit union.… Visit the author's original post

9ème Forum des Enseignants innovants: presentation of my OIB projects to the French Minsiter of Education

As some of you know, I have had to undergo emergency surgery. I am missing my dear students more than I can tell! And I still must lie down as much as possible.

That is why it has taken so long to write this post!

To My dear 10th grade students,

Your literature projects were selected by François Jarraud (Café Padagogique) to be presented to the French Minister of Education.

Your work and some of the content you created was really appreciated!… Visit the author's original post
