Why did Bianca visit the Museum of inventions and inventors? 2. What did she learn with Mr. Jay? List two things. 3. Do all inventors become famous? 4. What’s kevlar? 5. What’s an important characteristic of inventors? 6. Why was Bianca thinking of visiting the museum again?
  2. 2. Second Viewing As you listen to Part A of the video script, use arrows to indicate if the speaker used rising or falling intonation for the questions: Video Script – Part A: Bianca: Hi, are you Mr. Jay? Mr. Jay: Yes, I am. Can I help you? Bianca: I’m Bianca. One of the tree-house detectives. Mr. Jay: Tree-house ….what? Bianca: Tree-house detectives. We’re entering an invention contest and we need to know more about inventors. Mr. Jay: Well, you’ve come to the right place. Bianca: What do you do here? Mr. Jay: Well, we do lots of things here. But we study invention; we do programs for young people and we also collect papers from the inventors. Bianca: Papers like the journals they used to keep notes on their inventions? Mr. Jay: That’s right. Bianca: Are there a lot of famous inventors? Mr. Jay: Well, there are. But there are lots you may not have heard of either. People like Beulah Henry. She had some 48 patents which had all sorts of inventions like parasols and toys and even an ice cream freezer in 1912. Bianca: I bet she had a big bug list. Mr. Jay: You might have wondered about Stephanie Kwolek. Bianca: Is she a scientist? Mr. Jay: Yes, she went to school to study chemistry and then she invented a stuff called kevlar. Bianca: What’s kevlar? Mr. Jay: Kevlar is a super-strong fiber. It’s in everything from boats to airplanes today. In fact, we have an example here in our Gold Rush bicycle made of Kevlar.. Bianca: Can anyone be an inventor? Mr. Jay: Yes, we can all be inventive. But I think that there will only be one Wright Brothers. Bianca: How do you become an inventor? After checking if the intonation for the questions is rising or falling, try to come up with the rule for the intonation of Yes/No questions and Wh questions. Third Viewing Activity 1 Watch the video again and check if you marked the arrows correctly. After that, work with partner and practice the questions and answers, using the correct intonation.
  3. 3. Activity 2 Video Script – Part B: Mr. Jay: Inventors are all curious about things. They also try to improve invention. You know, some inventions just happen by accident. Bianca: I’m sure whoever made these bikes had a lot of fun. Mr. Jay: Yes, sometimes people do invent just for fun. In fact, we’ve got a new exhibition - Invention and Play - which will encourage people to develop their own creativity through play. Bianca: Maybe we can come back for that. We’re having trouble figuring out what to invent. Our problem is how to make bicycles safer at night. Mr. Jay: Coming out with solutions is often the hardest part. Frequently, we have to keep trying different solutions before we get one that’ll work. Bianca: Well, I haven’t thought of that. Maybe, if I look around at some of the great inventions, I’ll get some ideas. Mr. Jay: Yes, take a look at the bicycle collection and also take a look at that solar - powered car. Bianca: Definitely. Thanks, Mr. Jay, for all your help. Mr. Jay: You’re welcome. Activity 1 - There are some underlined words in part B of the video script above. Write each underlined word in the appropriate column, according to the number of syllables and the stress pattern:       Activity 2 – Mark the correct sentence stress in the following dialogs. Underline the word that contains the tonic syllable: 1. Bianca: Hi, are you Mr. Jay? Mr. Jay: Yes, I am. Can I help you? Bianca: I’m Bianca. One of the tree-house detectives. Mr. Jay: Tree - house …what? 2. Bianca: Is she a scientist?
  4. 4. Mr. Jay: Yes, she went to school to study chemistry and then she invented a stuff called kevlar. Bianca: What’s kevlar? Mr. Jay: Kevlar is a super-strong fiber. It’s in everything from boats to airplanes today. In fact, we have an example here in our Gold Rush bicycle made of Kevlar. 3. Bianca: How do you become an inventor? Mr. Jay: Inventors are all curious about things. They also try to improve inventions. You know, some inventions just happen by accident.
