Powerpoint to explain what is happening in France with the Gilets Jaunes currently.
2 ppts (one higher and one lower ability) lead class in discussion on key people in the movement, why they are protesting, why they are wearing the yellow vests and the government’s reaction. Ends with the ‘chanson des gilets jaunes’ link with an activity to complete in comprehension of the song. Can lead onto class discussion of cultural
differences in approaches to public demostrations and ethics. Can take a whole lesson.
Great way to get students of all years (we used it for years 8-13) engaged and understanding what is going on right now in France.
Links to GCSE topics of wealth and poverty as well as A-level topic of strikes.
