English

Both Ernesto from barrio boy and the boy in "A Day's Wait" interact with adults. Ernesto interacts with Miss Ryan, while the sick boy interacts with his father. Compare and contrast how the boys interact with the adults. Focus on how the boys think of the adults, how the adults react to the boys, and how the boys respond to them. Use details from the selections to support your idea.

This is what I put. Please read it and tell me if it is good. Be honest pleaseee.

In "A Day's Wait", the boy interacts with the father in a concerned way. The boy is concerned about his father's health when he says, "You can't come in, you mustn't get what I have." The father walks in noticing that the boy hasn't moved an inch. He took his temperature and the boy worries it. The father doesn't think the boy's condition is serious. The boy says in school at France, the boys told me you can't live with forty-four degrees. In Barrio Boy, Ernesto interacts with Miss Ryan in an uncomfortable way. He is afraid of Miss Ryan because he barely knows any English and finds her intimidating.

  2. You didn't say hardly anything about how the adults interacted with the boys. And, words such as "uncomfortable" and "concerned" are not very descriptive. How were those interactions manifested in actual behavior?

  3. Six sentences about one story, but only two about the other?

    Hmmmmm!

  4. Thank you for your response. I'll work on it.

  5. Wow! You teachers are so pathetic. How do you responds to a child like this? You should be supportive and she/he’s being nice and they didn’t act immature. Shame on you so called “teachers”!

  9. Your kidding me right? The kid asked for help and he got help. Writeacher was commenting on the very little information on the second story and bobpursley was wanting the student to use better words to do better on his assignment. The student came here for help and got help. I do agree I have seen Ms. Sue shame students but bobpursley and writeacher didn't shame this student.

  15. Ms. Sue did nothing wrong you self absorbed ding bats. She simply told him/her/them how he/she/they could improve. You guys get so mad at teachers for the stupidest things.

  17. In Barrio Boy Ernesto thinks of his teacher as a little scary because she was tall and energetic. He has trouble with her because he does not know english. It shows this were it says,“And when I least expected it, there she was, crouching by my desk, her blond radiant face level with mine, her voice patiently maneuvering me over the awful idiocies of the English language”. She helped him get over his fears by helping him read and being very kind to everyone. Ernesto and the other kids were aloud to speak their forin languages and that helped a lot. When he could finally read a word she was very happy and got the whole class exited. The boy in A Day’s Wait is very worried for his father and he doesn't want him to get sick. The boy says,“You can't come in,” he said. “You mustn't get what I have” and that shows he was worried. When he said this his father went in and checked his temperature because he was looking really bad. When the boy finds out his temperature is 102 he gets very worried because it is so high and he thought that it was in celsius not fahrenheit.

    How did I do I am really behind and I need to catch up so can you please help

    I like to copy and paste what Brainly says into a word doc
    Then resay their words with help from the articles
    Finally, I use Grammarly to check spelling and so on.

    Guarantied 100% (:
