Description

This presentation contains a 44 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format

In Europe, the satirical French magazine ‘Charlie Hebdo’ has been on the news along with the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten and their ‘Muhammad cartoons controversy’ in 2005. In sep. 2nd 2016, they published two caricatures that literally turned our stomachs. These caricatures sparked a debate about caricatures and the freedom of expression.

It Includes:

- The origin of caricatures

- the difference between a cartoon and a caricature

- the scientific explanation for our fascination with caricatures

- Who has rights ‘the subject of the caricature’ or ‘the caricaturist’, and how do we balance them?

- Is there a right ‘not to be offended?

- What does the law say?

- What do professional cartoonists have to say

- Can you tell the difference between a racist caricature and political criticism?

- Is there a limit to freedom of speech?

- What are some of the most important caricatures in history

This was a fascinating lesson to make, if only for the contribution of the great Andy Davey –

http://www.andydavey.com/

(one of the greatest caricaturist of all times), who kindly allowed his caricatures to be used in this lesson and contributed his thoughts and opinions.

*IMPORTANT!

This lesson is about caricatures! Caricatures by nature are meant to provoke. In this lesson, students are asked to look at caricatures and discuss what is disturbing about them. it also calls for a discussion about The Charlie Hebdo shooting in 2015, following the Prophet Mohammed cartoons. If you/ or your students have a problem with this (explosive) topic - PLEASE don't purchase this lesson (or you could, of course, be an adult about it and discard the slides that you find problematic...)

I hope you enjoy this lesson :)

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BUYING THIS PRODUCT, PLEASE READ THIS:

The products in this shop are all produced by me, a dyslexic teacher (hence the name).

I’m painfully aware of what seems to be very poor judgment of career choice on my part, and to be honest, a large part of this choice was to stick it to Mrs. Jacobson that said that there’s no place for the likes of me with my “pretend excuses” for misspelling every third word, in any self-respecting educational institution, so naturally, I had to become a teacher.

For more than 25 years I’ve been teaching ESL adult classes and cross-culture business classes, and much like other challenged individuals who go through life with one hand tied behind their backs, I try to make up for what I lack in the spelling department with hours of research, high-quality graphics, humor, passion and love for what I do.

The fact that I can actually do this job is first and foremost a testimony of open-mindedness (or desperation brought on by the long economic recession) of the schools that hired me over the years despite my very evident drawback, by the parents that tolerated grammar mishaps and most of all by my beautiful students who have learned to “always double-check their teacher” and have come up with the sweetest, most heart-warming and diplomatic ways of pointing out my spelling errors (putting to great use their newly-acquired conditional capacity: “I’m not sure, but, I think I might have spotted…”)

Over the years, I've personally contributed to the economic success of countless computer ‘correcting program’ available on the market (you're welcome Grammarly), and on top of that my lessons are proofread by wonderful, kind (and slightly horrified) TPT teachers, BUT there are always some errors that slip by us (mostly because I keep messing with the lessons after they've been proofread).

  • If you feel offended by the existence of spelling errors in what is supposed to be a teaching tool
  • or if you, much like Mrs. Jacobson, think the dyslexia is just an excuse not to try harder

THEN THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR YOU!

For all you tree-hugging, open-minded individuals, who are looking for challenging, original material for your conversation classes and can see beyond the possible grammar errors (maybe even use it as a teaching opportunity “An extra point for the first student who can spot the obvious grammar error that I always tell you never to make”. Plus, you know that wonderful, warm, superior feeling you get when you catch a colleague’s error - well these moments are included with the product – no extra charge)

THIS PRODUCT IS DEFINITELY FOR YOU!

All my lessons are in an editable PPT format and you get a free product if you send me the errors to correct.

I hope this product delivers everything you hoped for and more.
