March Madness      

Nice job Rebecca! The only thing I’m concerned about is that most of your quotes are fragments, which means they aren’t complete or they don’t have a subject. The first section of quotes is a good example of what you can do to make them complete. Another thing you can do is go over your recordings and your notes and pick out any words you missed that make it a complete sentence. Thank you, tryin:)                                              How about a little beginning to this:

We interviewed several students on campus to see who their favorite March March Madness Team and why, and this is what they said:

“Coach K (Krzyzewski) is the best coach out there, between men and women coaches”

“Duke has always been my favorite team, I like their coach.”

“They (Duke) have better students academic wise also.”

“A lot of their players are skilled, which is attributed to (a) hard work ethic, as far as shooting and double drills.”<I’m not exactly sure what this second sentence means. do you Jord?  

It was in reference to the basketball practice skills they work hard on. Another example would be like tag ups, and he did say it in that order- Can I change the order in which he said it?

“Not all (of the players) were born with talent but they all work hard.”
