Coming Very Soon: Shine Bright AMC

Posted by Speakeasy News > Sunday 14 March 2021 > Pedagogy


If you're teaching LLCER AMC, or will be next year, let us introduce the latest addition to the Shine Bright collection: Anglais, monde contemporain Cycle Terminal. It includes 28 chapters of varying lengths covering all the themes of the curriculum in 1e and Terminale, ranging across the English-speaking world.

A group of authors teaching in many different types of lycée have been working hard on the new textbook while teaching this new speciality. Taking their cue from the curriculum, they have concocted sequences on up-to-date and often burning topics that should grab your students' interest and give them a solid grounding in the modern English-speaking world.

Why not find out for yourself with this extract, which features a full-length file on the U.S. justice system and various groups' struggles to obtain justice within it. You'll also find a SnapFile on the Indian pharmaceutical industry, very much in the news since it one of the world's leading vaccine manufacturers. Plus examples of the Landmarks pages, a cultural and social primer right up to the present day, and the many aids for students preparing their Bac exams.

Sneak preview! Browse an extract.

As well the 28 Files, the book contains 34 pages of Landmarks: timelines and key information about the history and culture of English-speaking countries with an AMC angle. They were written by Juliette Hanrot, who teaches history and geography in DNL. Here's Juliette to tell us more:
