Projet Crocodiles. Pour mes élèves de Seine Saint-Denis. Lorsque j’ai appris l’attaque de Charlie Hebdo, je rentrais de l’école.

Pour mes élèves de Seine Saint-Denis

Un message, puis deux, sur mon téléphone. Puis je suis restée bloquée sur les chaînes d’information pendant un long moment sans pouvoir rien faire d’autre. Je me suis mise au travail, car c’était un mercredi après-midi et que j’avais des copies à corriger. Des copies de brevet blanc, un sujet d’argumentation : « Pensez-vous que tous les élèves de France ont les mêmes chances de réussir à l’école ? ». Dans la salle des professeurs, l’une de mes collègues musulmanes réprime un sanglot en nous disant que sa religion est encore salie. Je veux vous parler de ce qui s’est passé hier.

I was a quiet student, afraid to embarrass myself, let someone down, or fail. When we had to round robin read, I panicked. No one else in the room knew I was panicking, but I was quickly coming up with a solution. Wow!!!! To this day, when I hear the term round robin reading, I cringe and think about my own experiences. Tools for Close Reading. Looking for a versatile tool for close reading?

Tools for Close Reading

Try a page protector. Keep reading because it’s more than you think! Using a page protector for a printable page is pretty easy to figure out. Give students a printable passage, place in a page protector, and you have an instant reusable surface for students to use during close reading. What about the textbook? Begin with the standard page protector. Cut the side of the page protector.

Next, place tape on the top of the page protector. The wanna be perfectionist in me taped the bottom of the page protector also, just so it would match. By cutting the side of the page protector and taping the top, students are able to slide the page protector over a textbook page and write on it. That’s it!
