MAJOR ELECTIONS • • METHOD 2

Method - Commenting on 2 documents : faire un brouillon pour l'oral

Le jour de l'oral du bac vous n'aurez que 20 m pour préparer votre analyse de deux documents. Et la lecture des documents va déjà vous prendre un temps précieux. De plus, si les examinateurs vous voient lire votre brouillon, ils vont vous le prendre ou vous pénaliser puisque la lecture ne fait pas partie des compétences à évaluer.
Sur votre brouillon, ne doivent donc figurer que les éléments essentiels et/ou ceux que vous avez peur d'oublier.

Analysis

 DESCRIBE THE DOCS
What I see (=DOCS)
 INTERPRET THE DOCS
What I know (=NOTIONS)
ON THE ONE HAND, Doc.1 shows THERESA MAY'S ELECTORAL VICTORY
In the table, we can read :
3 main parties results:
give the figures "live"
=> Recap : give the winner & justify "live"

=> Indeed, we know that
Notion 1 : political parties.
Define orally with "1. Political parties"

Notion 2 : the party victory & its consequence.
Define orally with "2. UK. Becoming PM by winning the GE"

ON THE OTHER HAND, HOWEVER, Doc.2 explains it's A HOLLOW VICTORY
On the front page, the headlines show :
P1 (main idea) the PM's mistake
-Order the main headlines "live"
+ P2 (main idea) reinforced by the other headlines
-Add other headlines "live" if you can explain them
=> it means that...
Notion 3 : why she held the snap election.
Define orally with "2. UK. Holding the election"

Notion 4 : why she has a problem.
Define orally with "2. UK. Becoming PM without a GE" & with "2. UK. Becoming PM by winning the GE"

+ Notion 5 : the Brexit.
Define orally with the vocabulary

En fait votre tableau contient le plan très détaillé de votre analyse. Tout le reste est directement dit à l'oral.
