Bich-Thuy: You have done a lot of work there and made some good changes, but, you needed to change the sentence that Dave wrote--and you just needed to change the direct object noun. Then other students would build on your sentence and make the next change.

Veronica Baig said...

NEXT STUDENT: Please change Dave's sentence by changing the direct object noun.
