This unit, designed as part of the Pestalozzi Programme, is a sequence designed as part of in-service training by secondary school teachers who are in charge of so-called "newcomer" pupils who are at the end of their bridging class and will join a secondary school register class.1 The unit aims to combine the specific skills and knowledge required by the two disciplines: in history, research and placing information in a spatial and chronological context; in language, being able to express a personal life moment orally. It can be developed in any class where the audience is of heterogeneous socio-cultural origin. Through the expression of the personal history of students, the study of a text in a historical perspective, followed by the reformulation of personal experiences according to spatio-temporal references, the teacher will accompany the class in an awareness of plural identities on the one hand, and of a shared culture on the other hand.
The unit is used to create a shared culture space in a classroom and is intended for secondary school teachers.
