The Fun We’ll Have

6ème OIB Future 5OIB

Les élèves de la section OIB du collège Rosa Parks sont venus ce matin visiter l’Hôtel Pasteur, un édifice remarquable situé au centre de Rennes, pour y découvrir les usages passés.

Ils ont étudié avec leur enseignante une nouvelle d’ Isaac Asimov, The Fun They Had, un monde imaginaire dans lequel les professeurs sont des robots et où l’on ne trouve les livres qu’au fond des greniers…

Set in the year 2157, when children learn individually at home using a mechanical teacher (robotic teacher), the story tells of an eleven-year-old Margie Jones, whose neighbour Tommy finds a real book in the attic of his house.

Ce travail d’écriture d’une nouvelle de science fiction, librement inspirée de la précédente, propose une approche critique, originale et pas forcément dystopique des élèves en 2019 sur leur avenir éducatif ou celui des générations futures…

In English, of course…

Happy Birthday, Raina!

A sea of change in comic books

I discovered my first Raina Reigelmeier book in 2010 when her autobiographical graphic novel  Smile came out. Then I picked a copy of Drama then Sisters and today I can’t wait for Guts that should come out in September but Smile definitely cimented my love for her work.                                                                                                                                           Still fresh today, Raina is very popular among my students and  so prolific!                     .For my students, it is such a pleasant way of learning English that we can’t do without her now.                                                                                                                                                So once again HAPPY BIRTDAY to you from all of us here  in Rennes  our little French secondary school.
