Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

A key element of good writing is Showing, not Telling. Telling is merely describing what a character is feeling. Showing visually exemplifies how they act to make clear how they feel. Mike doesn't like shots. How could the author SHOW that Mike doesn't like getting shots rather than just telling the reader that he doesn't like shots?

Answer:

Showing might play out as Mike is hesitant to enter the doctors room. He waits till the last minute. When he does enter the examination room, he gravitates to the corner, opposite of the doctor. It takes several minutes of coaxing for Mike to move to the examination table but, even then, he sits with his arms crossed so his hands can protect both upper arms, where he anticipated the upcoming injections.

Subject: US History

TutorMe
Question:

Jamestown became the first successful colony in the land that would become the United States. Though they had many devastating problems and almost collapsed, they were saved by a young John Rolfe who smuggled a few seeds that would become a tremendous cash crop. Cultivation and harvest of this crop, which depended on some of the earliest African slaves, would eventually save Jamestown and spark the overwhelming growth of the colonies. What was this crop?

Answer:

Though a controversial crop, tobacco not only saved the new colony of Jamestown and surrounding Virginia, it flourished because tobacco was extremely valued across the Atlantic. In turn, tobacco remains a primary credit to the success of the earliest US colonies.
