English 2: Semicolon & Discussion

Today, students responded to OGT #33:

Which is the best way to edit the sentence below?
John asked James to buy pens, instead he bought pencils.
A. John asked James to buy pens instead; he bought pencils.
B. John asked James to buy pens; instead he bought pencils.
C. John asked James to buy pens he bought pencils.
D. John asked James to buy pens; but he bought pencils.

Then, students got into groups and prepared for group discussion.  They answered the Chapter 1 and 2 Discussion Questions and then we discussed them as a class.  If you were absent, answer the questions on a seperate sheet of paper and submit them for participation credit.
