The Day of the Results ! A good one for most of you I hope. If not, it's not the end of the world. You'll do better next time, and arrive better armed at university.
Whatever your studies and your plans, you need to practise your English, which is a good occupation in a rainy summer...
Let's start with poetry:
An interactive game to read and understand a poem. Practise your reading aloud!
And if you want to read more poems, on different topics, or listen to some, here is another website:
The L students who had AP with me already know about this website !
A rare and exciting opportunity to hear the poets read their own poems!

There's a kind of party spirit floating over Chagall High School these days.
After a superb "prom-night-party" where more than a hundred Terminales and Manaa students appeared in their most glamorous and smartest outfits, there was a barbecue offered to the Drama students by the MANAA.
Last week the three drama classes performed for our great pleasure and finally 6 of these students offered three performances of the play Le Prénom.
Great events to end this year in a lively and friendly way.

Winter was a sad and difficult time to go through for everyone in Lycée Marc Chagall. And this blog has had difficulty publishing anything for a few months. But Spring is a positive signal. Let's write, read, laugh, get angry, amused and curious! I'm sure Michèle Sobaszek would have liked it that way.
Two months ago my 2nde pupils were lucky to experience something different on a Friday morning. Here is what they wrote about it:
"On Friday I went to visit the cathedral of Reims with my class. A guide showed us various monuents and he delivered explanations to us on their creators, their history and their significance. Among the most famous we saw the Tympanum of the Last Judgement. Finally we were interested in the stained glass windows.
Personally I appreciated much this school visit despite the cold inside the cathedral." Gaétane.
"Last Friday a woman came to talk about the FRAC, an organisation of Modern Art and showed us a video. This video called "Bonneville" is very strange because there is no sound and it's only in black and white. It's a city, but there's nobody in. It's a "ghost city". We saw typical places in the city, like the emergencies, the school, the park. The camera moved like a ghost.
I liked this hour, although I found this video very long." Alexis.

After the tragic events that took place in Paris on November 13th, December 9th was the opportunity for our students to stand together and say what important values tolerance, freedom of thought and respect are to them.
It was the first time the French Ministry of Education had decided to celebrate and honour "Laïcité". ("secularism" or "secularity" dictionaries tend not to agree on the translation.)
Some students had learnt by heart an article of the "Charte de la Laïcité" and read it aloud to classes. MANAA (post-ALevels Design students) had worked on a project to inform everybody on their rights and duties. The result was stunning and effective!
Here are a few photos to show you what happened that day at Marc Chagall High School, and how involved our students were.
