Entre les murs : l'appartenance, l'identité et la citoyenneté pour des élèves migrants
MetadataShow full item record
I had the chance to study in Strasbourg, a beautiful and diverse city. It was there that I landed an internship in a college in Hautepierre, 15 minutes by tram from the city center. Here are some questions I would like to address in my SIP. I will explore in the methodology of the literary and filmographic analysis of suburban education through a few examples: the film “Entrée les murs” (2008), the research of Tobias Warner and Frantz Fanon on colonial education and alienation, the novel “Kiffe Kiffe Demain” by Faïza Guène, and my personal experiences as a middle school teacher in France. Thus, we ask: What are the historical precedents that inform the ideologies that dominate the French school system? How do school language policies reflect attitudes toward immigration and immigrant students? How does the application of these policies affect the identity and esteem of young students in France? In order to understand the experiences of migrant students in the contemporary French classroom, it is important to understand the colonial history and the development of the French school. I examined the colonial educational projects that developed in Africa in the 20th century, using Tobias Warner's “Tongue Tied Imagination: Decolonizing Literary Modernity” and using “Peau Noire, Masques Blancs” by Frantz Fanon.
