Black Lives Matter : Travail collaboratif et éducation aux médias autour d’un sujet d’actualité

Cependant, il est parfois délicat d’aborder des sujets d’extrême actualité car on se trouve alors en concurrence avec le flot d’informations dont les élèves sont abreuvés en temps réel. Le travail, présenté ci-dessous, permettra, grâce au guidage et aux choix avisés de la professeure, d’apporter recul, relativisation, étayage et point de vue informé, garants du développement chez les élèves d’une réelle compétence interculturelle qui ne se nourrisse pas de stéréotypes et de simplification. Dans les divers échanges, en présentiel ou en distanciel, il conviendra d’aller au-delà de l’opposition pied à pied de points de vue strictement opposés de type pros and cons pour explorer des « zones grises » dont les jeunes élèves français ne sont pas toujours très familiers.

Black History Milestones: Timeline - HISTORY

Jackie Robinson, a sharecropper’s son from Georgia, joined the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro American League in 1945, after a stint in the U.S. Army (he earned an honorable discharge after facing a court–martial for refusing to move to the back of a segregated bus). His play caught the attention of Branch Rickey, general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, who had been considering bringing an end to segregation in baseball. Rickey signed Robinson to a Dodgers farm team that same year and two years later moved him up, making Robinson the first African–American player to play on a major league team.

Robinson played his first game with the Dodgers on April 15, 1947; he led the National League in stolen bases that season, earning Rookie of the Year honors.
