Dear students, dear colleagues,
I would like to present you a project. I have set up with my students this year : a monthly press review contest.
Here is how it works : every month, a designated group of students from each of my 5 classes is in charge of closely following the news to spot the major items and then sum them up so that their comrades are provided with a useful recap of each month’s events.
The point is first to encourage the students to « stay tuned » and read the English-speaking press as often as possible but also to help them acquire the necessary skills for the competitive exams as they are often asked to summarize information.
So each month I will be sharing their recaps with you (PDF documents attached) as a way to reward their hard work but also because I am strongly convinced that you might find some interest in this.
For the first three rounds of the contest the winners were : the MP students for September and the MPSI students for both Octobrer and November.
Regards, Ms DAMO
