How did you pick this theme or topic?
It was September 11th, so it made me think about the news. I also wanted to do something more “serious” than the previous class
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
General discussion ( hoe can you have access to the news? Newspapers…do you know any in France?)
Group work ( they chose a magazine or newspaper, went to the website, search it in order to be able to explain its organization, then they chose an article that they liked
How did students react?
They were interested in knowing more magazines, especially about music, cinema… more than serious newspapers .
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes. They could choose the newspaper or magazine they wanted to study, so they got involved in the research
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Computer (websites of the newspapers or magazines), handout with questions.
Please attach a copy.
Below are the questions
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes, but I would try to have them even more involved in the search, I think by having to look for one specific piece of information that I will have looked for before the class.
