Story-board, un Scénarimage, un Scénario-maquette
with 6 panels pasted onto an accordion fold book.
The writing assignment: To imagine shopping for an item, conversing in French with a shop person, using the comparative & superlative forms. Students "shopped" for things like L.L.Bean Boots, a birdhouse, &, moi:
For a fountain pen in Paris.
The vendeuse comments that with fountain pens one needs to use smooth papers of good quality.
The sales person invites the tourist to try some pens (without ink), to see how they feel. She also tells the tourist that she speaks French well. (Is she just flattering her? wonders the tourist, but she enjoys cinversing.) The salesperson asks the tourist where she's from. They chat...
After having purchased her new fountain pen the tourist departs & the two women exchange parting salutations. The salesperson tells the tourist to enjoy her new pen & to enjoy the rest of her stay in Paris.
The tourist does enjoy the rest of her stay,
using her new pen to write & sketch her impressions of beautiful Paris, its landmarks, & its activity.
