  • Answers…they are not all the same! Can you tell the difference between a good answer and a GREAT one?
    • Not so good answer:
    • banks closed and he couldn’t bet on the yankees.
    • GOOD answer:
    • Joe’s dad wanted to bet on the Yankees since he knew the final score, but the bookie wouldn’t take the bet.
    Describe how two of his dad’s plans to make money failed in 1932.
    • Joe’s dad originally thought he could put his $5000 in the bank to earn interest over 70 years, but he had forgotten many banks closed and were out of business in 1932. His money wouldn’t have been safe there.
    • He also thought he could bet on the World Series since he knew the scores and winner, but since EVERYONE knew the Yankees would win (even in 1932), no one would take his bet.
    GREAT ANSWER!

    • bad.
    • GOOD answer:
    • She doesn’t like herself.
      • I think that answer’s still weak…
    How does Whisper feel about herself?
    • Whisper doesn’t like herself much. She often talks about her looks, saying that she is fat and that her hair is stringy and looks awful. She even says she doesn’t care about her appearance. She complains that she’s uncoordinated and whomperjawed…which means she just doesn’t fit in. When another girl told her, “You hate yourself,” Whisper couldn’t disagree, so she must feel that way.

    • GOOD answer:
    • The Bogle twins tell funny lies that she likes to hear.
    Although the twins tell obvious lies, why does Gina pretend to believe them?
