Notion of power/ Bac
Message de ineseda posté le 23-06-2019 à 17:43:11 (S | E | F)
Hello!
Voici ma notion "Places and Forms of power" pour l'oral d'anglais; pourriez vous m'aider à corriger les fautes svp s'il vous plait?
Je vous remercie par avance !

PLACES AND FORMS OF POWER
I am going to talk about the notion Places and Forms of power. First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion. Power is the ability to influence the behavior of people. In order to live together members of a community accept rules and laws. This helps to create social cohesion but can also lead to conflicts and tensions. Even when authority seems absolute, there are always counter-powers which question it, aim at limiting its excesses and resist it. I will speak about African American Recognition in the United States, and answer to the question : How African American achieved their recognition and rights in the American society ?
I have chose three documents to illustrate this notion, an extract from a book, a cartoon and a picture. I will first speak about slavery, then about racial segregation and finally about desegragation.

The fisrt document is an extract from the novel Uncle's Tom Cabine written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, a white abolitionist, in 1852. The book strongly criticised by pro-slave southerners. In this extract, Uncle Tom, a black man, is tought how to write by Master George, a young white boy. We can see the superiority of master George while he's a child. He has disdain for Uncle Tom, whereas this one admire him. The situation seems to be unusual because the child teach to the adult. It underlines the fact that black people couldn't have acces to education and were just slaves, considered as unintelligent. White people thought they were superior to black people.
The extract illustrate the situation of black people at this period and the whole book played a role of counter-power, and stand against slavery and racial dicriminations.

The second document is a cartoon called The prediction, published in 1960 by Oliver Harrington. We can see two little black boys who are fishing by the river. It might be the Mississippi. They look about 10 years old, and they have poor, rustik and shabby clothes. They probably live in the country side, one of them has a dungarees.
The Caption is : « The teacher says that everyone can git to be president. Then how come the whole class falls out laughin' when I tell 'em that's my dream ? »
We understand that one of the boy would like to be president one day, but when he says it to his classmates they made fun of him. They considere his dream impossible to realise, they probably find him naive and innocent to think he could be president one day. Black people weren't even able to vote in 1960 so they could hardly climb the social ladder let alone become president of the USA. We can notice the stark contrast between the ideal of the Declaration of the Independance and the harsh reality. It shows that black people couldn't even dream of being president and it illustrates the racist society black people had to live in.

The third document is an artwork made by Norman Rockwell. It is entitled The Problem We All Live With and it was published in the magazine LOOK. We can see a black little girl walking with four men. This little girl is Ruby Bridges, she is 6 and it's her first day at school. She is the first black child to go to a school for white people, in Louisiane, on november 1964. A woman named Barbara Henry was the only teacher who accepted to teach her. We can see that Ruby is dressed in white, symbol of innocence and purity. She is escorted by 4 Marshalls federal agents, who protect her from attacks indeed some people of this Southern State were opposed to desegregation imposed by the Supreme Court of the USA. We can see Ruby is the target of projectiles such as a tomato. The red color represents blood and violence.
On the back wall we can read « NIGGER » a pejorative and racist word to talk about black people. It's also written KKK, which refers to the Ku Klux Klan a white supremacist and racist organisation in the USA, known for their radical ideologies. It shows that even when the racial segregation was ended, black people still were(ou were still ?) discriminated and some white people were opposed to the desegregation. The changes in law didn't change people's mind.

To conclude we can say that the racial discriminations and segregation had ingrained (or imbued ?) the American society for centuries. African American recognition took a long time to set up and we should keep in mind that desegregation and racial equality are really recent. Even now, racial inequalities still unfortunally exist in the American society and in the whole world.

Bonjour
erreurs en bleu
PLACES AND FORMS OF POWER

I am going to talk (speak) about the notion Places and Forms of power. First of all I would like to give a definition of this notion. Power is the ability to influence the behavior of people. In order to live together(virgule, pause vocale) members of a community accept rules and laws. This helps to create social cohesion but can also lead to conflicts and tensions. Even when authority seems absolute, there are always counter-powers which question it, aim at limiting its excesses and resist it. I will speak about African American Recognition in the United States, and answer to(verbe transitif) the question : How DID African American achieve their recognition and rights in the American society ?
I have chose(participe passé de to choose, I chose, chosen) three documents to illustrate this notion, an extract from a book, a cartoon and a picture. I will first speak about slavery, then about racial segregation and finally about desegragation.

The fisrt document is an extract from the novel Uncle's Tom Cabin written by Harriet Beecher Stowe, a white abolitionist, in 1852. The book (manque l'auxiliaire être)strongly criticised by pro-slave southerners. In this extract, Uncle Tom, a black man, is tought(orthographe, taught) how to write by Master George, a young white boy. We can see the superiority of master George while he's a child. He has disdain for Uncle Tom, whereas this one admireS (son z à l'oral) him. The situation seems to be unusual because the child teaches(prononciation IIIZ à l'oral!!) to(verbe transitif !!) the adult. It underlines the fact that black people couldn't have access to education and were just slaves, considered as unintelligent. White people thought they were superior to black people.
The extract illustrateS(son s à l'oral!!) the situation of black people at this period and the whole book played a role of counter-power, and stand(prétérit si c'est un verbe) against slavery and racial dicriminations.

The second document is a cartoon called The prediction, published in 1960 by Oliver Harrington. We can see two little black boys who are fishing by the river. It might be the Mississippi river. They look about 10 years old, and they have poor, rustik and shabby clothes. They probably live in the countryside, one of them has a(nom pluriel, pas de a) dungarees.
The Caption is : « The teacher says that everyone can git to be president. Then how come the whole class falls out laughin' when I tell 'em that's my dream ? »
We understand that one of the boys would like to be president one day, but when he says it(plutôt that) to his classmates they made fun of him. They consider his dream impossible to realise, they probably find him naive and innocent to think he could be president one day. Black people weren't even able to vote in 1960 so they could hardly climb the social ladder let alone become president of the USA. We can notice the stark contrast between the ideal of the Declaration of the Independance and the harsh reality. It shows that black people couldn't even dream of being president and it illustrates the racist society black people had to live in.

The third document is an artwork made by Norman Rockwell. It is entitled The Problem We All Live With and it was published in the magazine LOOK. We can see a black little(inversez) girl walking with four men.(j'aurais décrit au prétérit) This little girl is Ruby Bridges, she is 6 and it's her first day at school. She is(j'aurais mis was) the first black child to go to a school for white people, in Louisiana, on november 1964. A woman named Barbara Henry was the only teacher who accepted to teach her. We can see that Ruby is dressed in white, a symbol of innocence and purity. She is escorted by 4 Marshalls /(lun ou l'autre) federal agents, who protect her from attacks(point, pause) Indeed some people of this Southern State were opposed to desegregation imposed by the Supreme Court of the USA. We can see Ruby is the target of projectiles such as a tomato. The red color represents blood and violence.
On the back wall we can read « NIGGER » a pejorative and racist word to talk about black people. It's also written(maladroit) KKK, which refers to the Ku Klux Klan a white supremacist and racist organisation in the USA, known for their radical ideologies. It shows that even when the racial segregation was(auxiliaire avoir) ended, black people still were(ou were still ?) discriminated against and some white people were opposed to the desegregation. The changes in law didn't change people's minds.

To conclude we can say that the racial discriminations and segregation had ingrained(construction) (or imbued ?)(permeated ?) the American society for centuries. African American recognition took a long time to set up and we should keep in mind that desegregation and racial equality are really recent. Even now, racial inequalities still unfortunately exist in the American society and in the whole world.
Conclusion assez lambda. L'entretien qui suit compte autant que ce que vous allez réciter, qui n'est pas mal par ailleurs.
