Voici les réponses aux questions sur le texte étudié en cours aujourd'hui :

Trail A

1) Read lines 1 to 13. Describe President Trump’s vision of the media.

President Trump does not like the media. He considers the press an enemy and says that it spreads fake news.

2) Focus on the 2017 report and find out if American teenagers trust the media. Justify your answer with figures from the article.

No, American teenagers do not trust the media. A 2017 report on a series of focus groups with 52 people between the ages of 14 and 24 found that many young Americans believe the news is biased (lines 18 - 22)

3) Pick out the names of the teenagers interviewed. Note down the keywords that explain what they think about the media.

Emma Neely - no neutral news organisations, each writer has personal bias

Angie - the news media cannot be trusted, bias exists

Sally - they say what they want, they don’t say the truth as it is

Trail B

1) Explain President Trump’s attitude towards the press with examples of what he has done.

President Trump does not trust the media / he is skeptical about the media.

Examples: He has (relentlessly) attacked the media. He’s shunned (individual) reporters and referred to the press as “the enemy of the American people” and popularised the term “fake news” (lines 1 - 5)

2) Find out what the two reports mentioned in the article show.

A recent Knight-Gallup report showed that only a third of Americans view the press positively. (lines 6-7) A 2017 report found that many young Americans believe the news is biased. (lines 18-22)

3) Identify the criticisms which are addressed towards the media by teenagers.

Teenagers do not believe that the news organisations are neutral. They say they are biased and that they write what they want to say instead of telling the truth.

For your presentation on American media in class, explain how American teenagers access information nowadays and what vision of the news they have.

Production possible

American teenagers can access real-time news easily thanks to social media. Many of them follow people like the president, politicians or journalists on Twitter. They don’t believe that the news is always true / truthful and are aware of / concerned about bias.

To conclude, many American teenagers don’t trust the news.

vidéo - An apple

1. Look at the source. Say what you know about it.

The source is CNN & it’s a major news channel

2. Now watch the video. Note down the words you remember after watching it.

We hear the word “banana” & apple. The word banana is repeated many times whereas apple is only mentioned a couple of time. We learn that some people try to convince others that it’s a banana while it’s an apple : it’s fake news

3. Watch again and write down the following elements:

What you see ?

An apple

What you hear ?

A banana

3. What type of document is this? Justify your answer.

It’s a tv commercial/ad/advert/advertisement

4. Deduce who "some people are" and why they are criticized.

“Some people” are the other tv channels that fill people up with “fake/false news”

5. How does the tone of voice contrast with what is said? Guess the real message.

The tone is “serious” & this contrasts with the content which seems very childish. The real message is a warning to people to be careful regarding other news channels

Voici la présentation de la petite expérience que nous allons effectuer au labo la semaine prochaine

** Protocol**

For this experiment we will need the following :

1) a petri dish containing agar solution.

2) A sample of yeast in a glass bottle

3) An inoculating loop

4) A Bunsen burner

5) matches

Time required: less than 5 minutes to streak; 2-3 days for the colonies to grow


We must start by turning on the gas & using a match to light the Bunsen burner.

Then we open the top of the glass bottle containing the sample of yeast with our little finger or pinky finger. At this stage we must sterilize the top of the bottle by passing it over the flame of the Bunsen burner.

Now we take the oculating loop and sterilize it by holding the tip over the Bunsen burner for a couple of seconds before letting it cool down. If we forget to let it cool we will kill the yeast.

Now we use the loop to take a sample of yeast from the bottle before sterilizing the top of the bottle again & putting the lid back on it.

At this stage we have to take the lid off our petri dish containing the agar solution.

To transfer the cells to the media plate,we must begin the streak at one edge of the plate. We must press the side of the loop containing the cells to the agar plate’s surface and quickly streak back and forth across part of the plate’s surface. The streaks should lie near one another, but should not cross over previous streaks.

When we have finished streaking out the first side of the plate, we must turn the plate around a quarter of a turn before streaking out the second side of the plate.

At this stage we must re-sterilize the inoculating loop by running it through the flame of the Bunsen burner & letting it cool down to avoid killing the yeast.

We start to streak out the second side of the plate. These streaks should start by crossing over the last streak we made, then proceeding as before into new areas of the agar plate.

After this we must turn the plate around a quarter of a turn again before streaking out the last side.

We must sterilize our inoculating loop again & let it cool down.

To streak out the last side, we have to do spread the yeast on the last side of the agar plate by making the same back & forth movements with the inoculating loop. The cells will be distributed on the plate in decreasing concentration through the streaks, and no matter how many cells were on the inoculating loop to begin with, there should be an area on the streaked plate that will produce isolated colonies.

Cover the plate, invert it and incubate at 37˚C for 2-3 days. The plate should appear to have solid streaks of cells as well as isolated colonies.

Check the plate after 2 to 3 days’ growth.
