Mrs. Flowers part 1

Storyboard Text

  • The teachers report that they have trouble getting you to talk in class.
  • I hear you're doing very good schoolwork, Marguerite but that it's all written.
  • Come and walk along with me, Marguerite !
  • She spoke each word with such clarity!I'm certain a foreigner who doesn't understand English could understand her.
  • She pronounces my name so nicely!
  • Now no one is going to make you talk-possibly no one can.
  • Bear in mind, language is man's way of communicating with his fellow man and it is language alone which separates him from the lower animals.
  • That's a new idea to me!
  • Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with the shades of deeper meaning.
  • Your grandmother says you read a lot. Every chance you get. That's good, but not good enough. 
  • I should memorize the part about the human voice infusing words.
  • It's so valid and poetic !
  • I'm going to give you some books but you must not only read them, you must read them aloud
  • You should try to make a sentence sound in as many different ways as possible.
  • I'll accept no excuse if you return a book to me that has been badly handled.
  • What punishment would I deserve if I abused a book of Mrs. Flowers's. ?
  • Death would be too kind and brief.
