Today, we first corrected the creative writing of the EPI on Hopper.
Then, we worked on guiding visitors during a visit of a flight simulator.
We listed ideas in two categories: SHOULD or SHOULDN'T.

Visitors shouldn’t smoke in the simulator.
They should watch the screens.
They shouldn’t eat, drink or use their cellphones.
They shouldn’t move during the simulation, particularly during the take-off and landing.

Last week, you had a creative writing task to do about Hopper's painting and a story related to it.
After that, we started a new 'sequence' based on space exploration.
Thursday, April 6th
Correction of the test: Nighthawks, E. Hopper
Ex1: puzzle: match and complete:
a) The painting is entitled Nighthawks. (add 2 words)
b) This painting is an oil canvas/painting. (add 3 words)
c) You can see this painting at the Art Institute of Chicago.
a) On the right, there is a diner. (2)
b) The painting was created by Hopper. (3)
c) The scene takes place in a city at night. (3)
Document 1: a photo/an advert
On the photo we can see a man.
We think that he is model, a singer or a
He has an original hairstyle. We imagine the
stars in his hair represent/symbolize the US flag or a pop music band.
In the bottom right-hand corner, we can read the letters “JPL”. We guess the letters stand for an advertisement company, the name of a music band or the initials of the man’s name.
A full-page ad job offer
Actually, the stars in the man’s hair represent space because we can read the words “science fiction,” “wonder” in the slogan.
This document is a job offer for NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory) in Pasadena, California.
