Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 1 st period: Work through the question.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. First, let’s read sentences 13 and 14 in the original.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. This time, let’s read all of the answer choices because they are all so similar.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. What do you notice about choice A? It combines the sentences with the help of “which meant”. There is nothing incorrect about this choice, so we have to determine if it is the best choice. “Which meant” could imply that less important information follows.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. What do you notice about choice B? It combines the sentences with the help of “and”. The “and” has a comma right before it, so the sentence is punctuated correctly. “And” doesn’t show any particular relationship between the two parts of the sentence. “And” isn’t adding much meaning, but it also isn’t wrong.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. What do you notice about choice C? ERROR!! This puts “we got up in the morning” BEFORE “he tended the fire” which is the wrong sequence of events. We mean to say, “when we got up we could have hot rice,” not “when we got up, he tended the fire.”

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. What do you notice about choice D? It combines the sentences with the help of “so that”. “So that” indicates a reason for him tending the fire (in order that we could have our hot rice). Using “so that” provides a piece of useful information. It also adds clarity.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. “Which meant” didn’t contribute the same meaning. “Which meant” indicates that the two happened to coincide, not that he did it for the purpose of us having our hot rice, so D is better than A.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 5 2 nd period: Go over the work you did during first and discuss answers and strategies. Is B better than D? “So that” definitely provides more meaning than “and”. “So that” indicates the purpose of him tending the fire, while “and” indicates that “he tended the fire” and “we could have our bowl” happen to both be the case. D wins!

Wednesday November 27, “"My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 6 3 rd period: Work through the question.

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 6 4 th period: Go over the work you did during 3 rd and discuss answers. Read answer choice A. ERROR!!! There are 2 commas missing!!! Remember, the word “and” by itself is NOT ENOUGH to correctly separate two complete sentences, and neither is the word “so”! A is a run-on!,,

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 6 4 th period: Go over the work you did during 3 rd and discuss answers. Read answer choice B. This one starts with “since,” uses correct punctuation, and eliminates a redundancy (“He made it”). I like it. Let’s read the other two choices in case there is something even better.,

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 6 4 th period: Go over the work you did during 3 rd and discuss answers. Read answer choice C. C misplaces the phrase “Making it from wood and banana leaves” by putting it right before “we”. This placement indicates that we were the ones “making it”, which isn’t what we’re trying to say. We want to say grandfather is the one making it.,

Wednesday November 27, "My Hero" Lesson 31, question # 6 4 th period: Go over the work you did during 3 rd and discuss answers. Read answer choice D. D misplaces the phrase “from wood and banana leaves” by putting it right before “outside”. This placement is confusing and awkward. We want to say the bathroom is made from wood and banana leaves. And the winner is…,
