In class last week we talked about the segregation in the US.

Here is a wikipedia article about the Jim craw laws

and here is a page created about the documentary "the Rise and fall of Jim Craw". On this site, you should be able to watch part of it and find many articles that should enable you to comprehend more of the period..

enjoy

Here are a few sites where jim craw laws are explained:

 

http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples/examples-of-jim-crow-laws.html

 

http://www.nps.gov/malu/forteachers/jim_crow_laws.htm

 

Here, read a story written by a little white girl about the period of the jim craw laws, which shows that some white people didn't agree with these laws even if they still had to respect them.

 

 

Hope this will help you!

et le script: 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I’ve always had a clear view about immigration. I believe that immigration has brought significant benefits to Britain, from Polish heroes who fought for us during the war to West Indians who helped us to rebuild afterwards; from those who’ve come to our shores seeking a safe haven from persecution, to those who’ve come to make a better life for themselves and their families and, in the process, have enriched our society by working hard, taking risks and creating jobs and wealth for the whole country.

Our migrant communities are a fundamental part of who we are and Britain is a far richer and stronger society because of them, whether it’s great scientists, doctors, medical practitioners, artists, musicians, sports stars or business leaders, entrepreneurs, hard-walking – working businessmen and women. So many Great Britons today have family histories that have brought them to these shores. This is our island story: open, diverse and welcoming, and I am immensely proud of it.

But while I’ve always believed in the benefits of migration and immigration, I’ve also always believed that immigration has to be properly controlled. Without proper controls, community confidence is sapped, resources are stretched and the benefits that immigration can bring are lost or forgotten.

SCRIPT : STAR WARS TS

 

It’s one of the most anticipated movies of all times « Star Wars: The Force Awakens »

56 million people have seen the trailer and fans are counting the days until the movie opens in December.

But one Star Wars fan can’t wait that long: Daniel Fleetwood is dying, he has terminal cancer. In September he was given two months to live so he is literally on borrowed time. His dying wish is to see ‘The Force Awakens’. Check out his hand-drawn bucket list but it’s unlikely he’ll make it to opening day, so Daniel’s wife Ashley started a social media campaign #Force For Daniel, asking Disney to let Daniel see the top secret movie early.

“Help my man get his last wish” Ashley twitted “to see a screening of ‘Star Wars’ before cancer takes him”. Her campaign touched hearts around the world, even Luke Skywalker himself–actor Mark Hamyll- re-twitted the plea to Disney and it worked!

Daniel is too weak to make it to a movie theatre so Disney sent a team to Daniel’s house, outside Houston, and actually gave him a private screening of the movie. Today Disney made his final wish come true, his grateful wife wrote on Facebook, a wonderful present that means so much to a man who won’t be with us much longer.

May the Force be with you, Daniel.

Here is another document that you could use to train for the exam. It's a message that Barrack Obama adressed to Nelson Mandela. I don't remember if we have already listened to it, in case we haven't, here  is the video.
