Why do you think one man walks out?

entre les murs
Entre Les Murs
  • This is a semi-autobiographical account of François Marin’s
  • experiences as a French language and literature teacher
  • in a middle school in the 20th arrondissement of Paris.
  • Excerpt from the film: 47:53 > 48:48
  • Esmeralda reluctantly reads out her ‘self portrait’
  • about her home
  • life and her plans
  • for the future.
entre les murs1
Entre Les Murs
  • Introduce yourself in a similar style. What might be controversial
  • about you to your classmates? What might surprise them?
  • Is it right for the teacher always to pick up on any use of more
  • informal registers? Why/why not? Why do you think François
  • insists it is important?
entre les murs2
Entre Les Murs
  • How do you think her home life has affected her aspirations?
  • What does her comment about the police suggest?
  • Do you think that François is correct when he tells her to write in
  • standard French, or should she be able to choose how to express
  • herself?

  • Carl explains why he supports the French football team.
entre les murs4
Entre Les Murs
  • During a class discussion one of the boys starts to talk about
  • the African Cup of Nations, a football competition about to
  • begin. He is clearly annoyed that some of the other boys seem
  • to regard it as very important whereas he clearly doesn’t.
  • Why do you think that he is immediately confronted with the
  • question about whom he supports? What might this mean?
entre les murs5
Entre Les Murs
  • The discussion quickly degenerates into an argument about

nationality. Why do you think this gets so heated so quickly?

  • Do you think it was a good idea for the teacher to allow this

type of discussion to happen in the classroom? What are the

arguments both for and against this?

  • You are a journalist living in the area where the riots took place.

Write a report for your newspaper describing the events and

experiences? What do they think? How do they see the future?

was thinking when she said she was French and what she

was thinking when she got annoyed with the Austrian girls.

  • to a particular nation or society?
  • What have you done, or what might you do, to ‘fit in’
  • with a social group?
