Question:

Identify the subject in the following sentence: "On her way to the store, Mara saw her friends walking home from school."

Sarah K.
Answer:

The subject is Mara, because she is the one seeing her friends. Her friends are not the subject of the sentence because the sentence also is complete when her friends' action, "walking home from school," is absent. See: "On her way to the store, Mara saw her friends."

Writing

Question:

To begin your creative process, answer this prompt with a full page. Even if you run out of your response, keep writing anything that you think until the page is full.

Sarah K.
Answer:

This exercise is designed to keep students thinking, creating new ideas and keeping their pencils moving. If the pencil stops, so does the brain, and then we wander and get lost in our thoughts. If we keep writing, we keep our thoughts engaged as well.
