• Hey!


    Today, you started with the lesson: you gave your stereotypical vision of the American man and the definition of a stereotype.


    You studied a video document about people's stereotypes about the French:

    Here are the ones you picked:

    The French man is said to wear fancy clothes and to be in a rush. Moreover, he is believed to play THE accordion everywhere. French waiters and taxis are said to be rude / impolite. The French people are also thought to be heavy wine drinkers and cheese eaters. Furthermore, French women are believed not to shave their armpits. So, they stink.

    Today, you first draw your representation of the American man and you presented it in front of the class.

    Unit 2: Racial Stereotypes

    Here is what you said:

    Some people think that the American man is overweight.
    The American man..
    -is seen as someone obese / plump / chubby.
    -is said to bear guns.
    -is believed to be patriotic / be fashionable.
    -is thought to wear casual outfits.

    Then, you deduced this vision was sterotypical and you defined what a stereotype is. You completed your definition thanks to the text below:


    Here is your complete definition:

    A stereotype is an inaccurate / erroneous / ill-founded idea about a group of people.
    A cliché is unverifiable because we can't check it. Moreover, a prejudice is a distorted / deformed image.
    A stereotype is also fixed / engraved because it will never change.

    Then, you reminded us about the benefits of this bracelet and completed the list:

    Power Balance permits the energy to flow better.

    Written by Linda.


    However, some people think this wristband doesn't work.

    Here is what you said about it:

    Athletes wear this bracelet because they don't feel confident.
    This bracelet is useless because there are no evidence / no scientific research / studies to prove it works.
    The people who use the wristband are lazy.
    They use celebrities such as David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo because they are famous and talented athletes, so clients want to identify with them / to look like them.
