J’aime les mots


On Friday, September 28, high school students are invited to create memes and post them on social networks under the hashtag #JmLesMots.

In French, history, plastic arts, language and science classes, young people will be able to use images and text to illustrate their craziest ideas, deepest concerns and most profound thoughts.

Teachers: Whether or not you are familiar with memes, you can enjoy exploring this technological reality that teenagers know well. A complete teaching kit will guide you step by step in this creative, entertaining activity.

Register now for this free turnkey activity. You will receive a teaching kit containing suggested activities and coaching guides on both memes and the use of social networks.

Post your students’ memes on Friday, September 28 (on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) under the hashtag #JmLesMots. The event sponsor, author Simon Boulerice, will be online on September 28 to comment on the postings of the young people and share with them. By going to the interactive gallery on the Journées de la culture website, you and your students can follow what students in other schools in Quebec, the rest of Canada and the Francophonie have posted.

One of the participating classes, selected by a panel, will have an opportunity to participate in an exclusive meeting, either in person or via Skype, with Simon Boulerice! Read the regulations for additional information (french only).

You can be online on September 28? Not a problem! You have until Friday, October 12 to post your students’ memes and have a chance to win this prize.


Please note that this activity is held in French only.
