The group also says biofuels will do nothing to combat climate change...

En collège, revisiter Sherlock Holmes grâce à Dr House

"Nos élèves ... adorent ce personnage brillant, solitaire et cynique qui a l'art de résoudre les énigmes médicales comme on mène une enquête criminelle...
ce docteur House ressemble à son grand-père spirituel : Sherlock Holmes.
Pour les enseignants, il y a là matière à donner un souffle nouveau aux séquences sur le genre policier. Découverte de la notion d'intertextualité et de la référence originale par la lecture des récits de Conan Doyle, rédactions variées,
réflexion sur la langue, exploration du support filmique... "
