"Travail transdisciplinaire anglais/histoire-géographie/B2I qui s'inscrit parfaitement dans la sensibilisation à la DNL qui sera ensuite enseignée
en lycée. Le but de cette séquence est d'étudier quelques temps forts de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, vus du côté américain et d'étudier la propagande à travers des affiches de guerre. Le lien avec les contenus culturels du programme du palier 2 " l'ici et l'ailleurs " est clair :
une histoire partagée ici et là-bas, des deux côtés de l'Atlantique (WWII). Objectif : considérer cet événement historique du point de vue
de l'autre, percevoir les caractéristiques culturelles d'un peuple au travers d'un événement vécu conjointement, mesurer ainsi les différences,
les ressemblances, les singularités des uns et des autres. La tâche finale se déclinera en deux temps : en premier lieu, chaque binôme créera son propre diaporama (à partir d'une affiche de son choix), lequel lui servira de support pour son exposé oral. En second lieu, le binôme rédigera
un texte complet du diaporama afin que ce dernier soit publié sur le site du collège.

Crimemapper
An interactive map of crime reports in the Sacramento region

(crimemap.scoopytube.com)
"You write in the address of a home, residence, school, etc.; click, and
you are then shown a map of the area with markers explaining what
crime was committed where and when over the past year.
A program like this has tons of possibilities for English Language
Learners and others.  Students could analyze their neighborhood 
crime’s statistics and compare it with others, then discuss the
reasons for differences.
They could look at the stats and organize a meeting with police to
discuss any concerns they and their families might have.
And these are just two of many ideas."
