9 Warm-up Questions Distant Education College, Jilin University 4) Do you know what a garage sale is after reading this play? A garage sale is part of American daily life. If an American family wants to dispose of its junk, it may set up a sale in its garage. Return

10 Background Knowledge Distant Education College, Jilin University There is an old saying, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure.” This means what one person sees as having little value, another person sees as very valuable. The value of anything depends upon the demand for it. The term “garage sale” comes from the place where one displays the household items he wishes to sell. Most people do not wish strangers to come into their house, so they will place the items for sale in the garage. The garage is an enclosed area where people normally park their car(s) and has a large outside doorway of its own. Setting up sale items in it provides protection from the weather. If a person does not wish to use his garage to display the items for sale, he may place them on tables in his front yard. This would then be a “yard sale”. Return

11 Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University In the United States, it is very common for people to buy second- hand goods as they are useful and much cheaper. But, if you were a foreign student in America, would you know where to buy them? Characters: Pat …………………………………………. the daughter F.S. ………………………………………… foreign student (male or female)

12 Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University Bob ………………………………………… the son Mom ……………………………………….. the mother Mr. Smith ………………………………….. a neighbor Mrs. Green ………………………………… a neighbor Dad (Mr. Burns) …………………………… the father

13 Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University Garage sales are very common in the United States now. They also have other names such as yard sales or porch sales. Sometimes several families have a joint sale, or a group will have a sale to benefit a charity. They serve many purposes besides cleaning out unwanted items and making money. They also serve as a minor social event, a chance for new neighbors to get acquainted, and a place to pick up needed items inexpensively.benefitcharityacquaintedpick up

14 Text Analysis Distant Education College, Jilin University The action takes place in the garage of the Burns home. There are a couple of makeshift tables with a collection of things on them.
