The story of "The Turtle and the Rabbit Run a Race" teaches a few lessons. What lesson does it teach about cheating?

"The Turtle and the Rabbit Run a Race" personally taught me if I don't work hard, and I cheat to earn the success I want; I will get the negative revenge of my action. The turtle won the race without working hard. If a person doesn’t work hard he/she will definitely get a negative result of what they deserve.

  1. Better. I'll make a few corrections (below), but this is much clearer in meaning!

  4. You're welcome.

    Make sure you understand why I made the changes in that last sentence. If you don't know why using "they" is incorrect in that sentence, let me know.

    Is this story more like a fable or more like a myth? Explain your reasoning.

    I think the story was more like a fable, because it is using talking animals as characters. Also the story is teaching a moral at the end. I personally don't think the story was a myth because myths explain phenomenons, and historical stories myths also explain how things happen or why they happen myths are usually fictional explanations, and ancient stories.

  12. #4 is better. Just use a lower-case m on "myths," and it'll be fine.

    #5 - Go into that link I gave you above, click on INDEX, and read about sequence of tenses. Also, study this -- http://public.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/passed.html -- and reread your sentences.

  13. Ok i will read about that and fix number 5 and post it.

    I really don't understand number 6 and 7 but I tried my best to answer.

    6-This tale was transcribed exactly as it was told. What does the dialect add to the story?

    6- The dialect added to the story humor tradition in it but it was really hard to understand.

    7-How does the dialect make the story more difficult to follow? Explain.

    7- the dialect made it really hard to read the story because it wasn’t using the English language it was using a more native American accent I think hearing the story would be really much easier than reading it.

    The dialect made the story really hard to read because it was using a native American accent I think hearing the story would be much easier than reading it.

    There is a run-on in there. Read the sentences aloud and figure out where there needs to be another period and capital.

  18. #5 - The only correction to make is to change "will" to "would." Perhaps reading about conditional sentences (If this ... then that...) will make more sense:

    #7 - This makes no sense. Of course it's in English! An accent is not a different language. Please re-read the corrections I made for this above.

    "The Turtle and the Rabbit Run a Race" was a much longer story with a negative act from the turtle. The turtle cheats to win the race witch results to a negative ending for him.
    "The Tortoise and the Hare" was a shorter story with a positive happy ending for the turtle.
