1. read the following excerpt from franklin d. roosevelt's "fireside chat 19":
on the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that guerilla warfare against the germans in, let us say serbia or norway, us; that a successful russian offensive against the germans us; and that british successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.
remember always that germany and italy, regardless of any formal declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the united states at this moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with britain or russia. and germany puts all the other republics of the americas into the same category of enemies. the people of our sister republics of this hemisphere can be honored by that fact.
the true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. when we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. we americans are not destroyers — we are builders.

you only need simple sentences to answer this. just answer these questions.
what do you think annie thinks of the mother? do you think annie believes the mother is a fit mother for helen.
what about the father? what would annie think of him? she might not like him, but does she respect him.
how about the son? would annie think he is the only voice of sanity in an insane place?
what about helen herself? this is the key question. how does she see helen? what do you suppose she thought her first job was going to be.
these aren't hard questions. just state the obvious. annie is not that well educated: she just knows what she has to do. write it that way.
you can do it if you've read the book or seen the play or movie.
