L'usage du document écrit en DNL Histoire-Géographie

Abstract : This thesis tries to show that providing instructional materials in English can serve as a helpful tool for French students in History an Geography. Thirty French high school students were given two hours to read and understand a text in English and answer two questions about the Domesday Book, the only census of its kind conducted in England in the Eleventh Century at the request of William the Conqueror. Students were divided into groups and provided with different activities regarding the difficulty of the task. The research found that for all groups, the difficult process of deconstructing and rebuilding knowledge from an English document helped the majority of students to not only improve their English but also to develop creative ways to understand the History and Geography material.
