Activity Overview


Using storyboards is a great way for students to distinguish the differences between the imperfect and passé composé. Using a T Chart, students will write sentences using the imperfect and passé composé and illustrate scenes to go along with it. This format can help students identify a number of differences between the two tenses, such as sustained action vs. finite action, or habitual action vs. one-time events.

The sample storyboard is set up to display an ongoing action interrupted by a one-time action. The storyboard images will help students envision the scenario and further solidify the grammatical rule. This can be altered and used as a template for students, or students can create their own scenarios from the blank template provided.
