The first sketch from the programme's here !

"American Gothic"

was painted  by Grant Wood.

The artist  "combined Americana with European technique. Inspired by the window that recalled the cathedrals he had seen in Europe during his training and travels, [Grant] Wood posed his quintessentially American figures in a "rigid frontal arrangement" that recalls Northern Renaissance art, while mimicking that movement's close attention to detail."

(From "15 Things You Might Not Know About American Gothic" - June 2015)

Here is a second video, also based on "American Gothic"...

High School students & beyond :

Decode the reasons why the author of the poster has chosen each explanation...  can you answer these questions?

Twitter : "I'm eating bacon"

How long are the messages displayed on Twitter? So, why is the verb "eat" present continuous?

Fbook : "I like bacon"

... hmmm. Nah, I won't help you! The answer's far too easy...

LinkedIn : "I have skills including eating bacon"

If you don't know this network, check what  linkedin is... and you'll get the answer! The key-word is "skills".

Foursquare : "This is where I eat bacon"

Which is the key-word? 1st clue : this one helps to find places - 2nd clue : check it here!

YouTube : "Watch me eat my bacon"

... you know the answer-key comes with the word "watch", don't you?

. . .  ?? : "Here's a vintage photo of my bacon"

Well, I give up : it's surely a photography social media, but I couldn't find what this logo corresponds to : if you can find the social media it represents, please tell me!

⇒  I knew you'd find it (1)  : the logo shows Instagram's camera.

Pinterest : "Here's a recipe with bacon"

Why not explain what ' Pinterest' is?

Google+ : "I work for Google and eat bacon"

How does Google work -I mean how does it earn money? As a result... why does the poster tell that you work for Google whenever you use it on the web pages you surf?

Last.fm : "I'm listening to music about bacon"

Well, both "fm" and "listening to music" are clues to a proper answer : what can you do on this website? Who owns last.fm? You'll find the answer here.

 

Here you are : hope you've learnt a bit more on a few Internet social media networks and had fun :)

  (1) : thanks to SteF
