Question description

Create a Story with Conversation: Portfolio

You have learned many ASL signs and how to use them in conversation. You have also learned about signing stories. With the knowledge that you have, create a part of a story that has conversation between “Jill” and “Jan” with the guidelines listed below. The scenario is as follows:

Jill and Jan go to the same school. There is going to be an art show in the school cafeteria next week, after school. Jill wants Jan to go with her to see the art that she has made. Jan says yes, she will go, and they must decide on a day and a time, as well as where to meet. Jill also tells Jan about how the drawing she created is inspired by De’VIA art. Jan had never heard of De’VIA art before, and she asks Jill to explain to her what this means

Your guidelines are as follows:

  1. You must use all five vocabulary words in your story/conversation: ART, DIFFERENCE, EXPERIENCE, IDENTIFY, IMAGE/PICTURE, SUPPORT.
  2. Be sure to provide an explanation of De’VIA art. Additionally, you should explain why you think Jill was inspired by this type of art. For example, you can accomplish this by discussing a specific artist or piece of art you studied in the lesson.
  3. Alternate conversation: Have Jill and Jan exchange conversation enough times so that each has at least five sentences of conversation (for a minimum of 10 sentences of conversation, total).
  4. Write the sentence in English first. Underneath the sentence, write the ASL equivalent—what you would sign. If the signing needs any nonmanual markers (nmm), mouth morphemes (MM), inflection, or classifiers, write that description either within or below the ASL translation, in brackets.

Below is an example of two sentences. You may use the example as the start of your story, or you may begin the story any way that you would like. If you use the example as the beginning of your story, the sentences do not count toward your minimum of 10 conversational sentences.


English: Jill walked down the hall of the school. “Hi, Jan,” said Jill.
ASL: J-I-L-L THERE SCHOOL HAPPEN J-I-L-L WALK [CL:1 to show walking]. SEE J-A-N SAY HI J-A-N! [use inflection with eyebrows lifted, smiling]

English: “My art is in the show!” said Jill.
ASL: J-I-L-L THERE [CL:1 shows Jill’s placement on one side, where she is talking] SAY J-I-L-L MY ART IN S-H-O-W ALL PEOPLE SEE ART! [add inflection by showing excitement with face; use CL:1 to show THERE; use CL: 2 to show the gaze of the people looking around at the art]

Remember: In ASL storytelling, you will want to elaborate, or give the full intent of the story, for complete understanding.
