I’m correcting quizzes for Treasure Island, the novel we are currently reading. Each question requires an essay/short answer response.

The first question is: Describe Treasure Island, including the hills and vegetation.

This is one of the responses:

“Treasure Island has like trees and like different types and there is like a stream in it and a spring with like clean water also there are like scattered big rocks and grasses and kinda bushes.”

Ugh . . .

The embarrassing thing is I’ve been teaching this group of kids now for almost 27 weeks.
