  • THE SCARLATTI TILT :

    • The Scarlatti Tilt - Activities sent by Anne-Sophie SAINT-SULPICE (Ac. Lyon) :
      "A l'origine j'avais fait une faute de frappe sur l'histoire et j'avais décidé de la laisser car d'une part cela permet de placer tous les personnages typiques
      de la 'detective story' et d'autre part ça leur permet je pense de bien voir à quel point une simple lettre peut être importante en anglais (une fois qu'on rectifie l'erreur). Vous pouvez, vous, l'enlever, c'est alors plus simple pour les élèves de comprendre. Mais comme moi je veux bien leur faire réaliser à quel point les ellipses dans la narration peuvent être un obstacle à la compréhension, ça ne me gêne pas qu'ils rament un peu au début."
