  1. If I were grading your responses, I'd probably hand this back to you for explanation.

    What do you mean by "believable" and "not believable"? Give some examples from the stories for each.

    Why does the story's point of view (1st person or 3rd person or ??) make a difference?

    What do you mean by "realistic" and "unrealistic"? Give some examples from the stories.

    Just from reading the books, how do you know that one is telling about "real people" and the other is not.

    ----------------------

    Your answers are very superficial, and you've provided no explanation or examples for any of them.

  3. So far, he has not cheated: no answers to copy. Frankly, I suspect she would be happy that Sam is getting others to tell him his thinking is shallow...she doesn't have to do it. Why don't you ask her?

  4. Actually nobody would be disappointed because we are aloud to look up things for quizez and quick checks...it only counts as cheating if you copy word for word or if you look up stuff for a test....
