The Class

January 29, 2010

Worth watching : a new film on teaching. Will be of particular interest to students of class management and discipline issues as well as French language students.
Francois Martin begins a new year teaching in a tough suburb of Paris. In his classes, M. Martin insists on an atmosphere of respect and diligence, a philosophy which is put to the test in the film “The Class “ (Entre les Murs) which can be seen as a microcosm of French society where cultures and attitudes clash.
“The Class” was awarded the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, 2008.
Watch this YouTube clip from ‘The Class’.
