Here are my answers. Please let me know if they are wrong.
1.(B) string ideas together to show
2.(A) Lucita relates that her mother
had a baby boy last night and
they named him Paquito.
3.(C) modeling use of decontextualized
I agree with your first and third answers. But I don't think your answer for #2 is correct. According to your text, an eventcast is a the explaining of an immediate situation. Lucita's report is not an immediate situation, but she is sharing news that others don't know. Which choice asks the child to tell what s/he has just related to the teacher?
"Another type of narrative,typical in
mainstream cultures but very unusual in nonmainstream families,is called eventcasts. An eventcast is an immediate
description of an ongoing event or the labeling of something obvious.
For example, a mother observes her son
coloring in a coloring book and asks,
"What are you doing,Jon?" Despite the
fact it is obvious what the child is
doing,she asks him to describe,or
narrate,his ongoing action."
Would "D" be the best answer for the third question?
No. "D" is not the best answer for #3. There's no evidence that the teacher is employing scripts in using games such as "Simon Says."
You were right the first time with "C."
By modifying the game to incorporate a higher level of speech, s/he is modeling the use of decontextualized speech. She is using "school language."
P.S. The question asks about a teacher who modifies a game. She is obviously not using a script, but is making the changes on her/his own.
on question 2-- Would "B" be the best answer?
Sorry Ms. Sue-- I looked at my paper wrong- I meant to ask if "D" was the correct answer.
Yes. D is the best answer for # 2.
No. "B" is not the best answer for # 2.
The question asks which skill best exemplifies the skill of eventcasting.
Eventcasting, according to your text, is explainining something obvious, like what you are doing at the moment.
But a child who doesn't understand eventcasting, would certainly be confused when the teacher asked Little Bear to repeat what he'd just read to her.
o.k.--- I just asked you if "D" would be the best answer. I made a mistake when I asked you if "B" were best.
Anyways, "D" is the best-- because it is obvious, right?
thank you for your help!
You're very welcome. I enjoy helping you because you're so diligent and motivated. :-)
I refuse to give up in my studies!!
