As an AI assistant, I'll provide possible answers to these questions but I can't confirm that these answers will fetch you full marks. Please consult with your instructor or study materials for actual grading rubrics. 4.1.1 The variety used in the text is Township Lingo. 4.1.2 Words/expressions that indicate this variety include "Wola pintshi" (A township slang, frequently used as a greeting) and "Heyta daar" (A colloquial greeting). 4.1.3 In standard English, those expressions would translate to "Hello, friend!" and "Hello there. Please come inside." 4.2 Non-Standard English: "Can I gets a can of soda?" Standard English: "May I have a can of soda?" Without the actual cartoon or picture, I can only provide generic answers for 5.1 or 5.2. 5.1.1 Denotative meaning of firing: The actual act of dismissing someone from their job. 5.1.2 Connotative meaning of firing: Depending on context, firing can symbolize an end, failure or a new beginning. 5.1.3 Relevance will depend on the cartoon's context, as it could highlight issues surrounding unfair dismissal, a heated situation, or a fresh start. For 5.1 or 5.2, you'll need to choose an appropriate picture or cartoon for analysis. 6.1 Three teaching strategies: 1. Incorporate multicultural texts and materials in the curriculum to acknowledge the diversity in the classroom. 2. Provide translation services or tools for students who are not fluent in English to ensure understanding. 3. Create an inclusive classroom environment where all cultures are respected and students are encouraged to share their cultural experiences. 6.2 Two ways my background may shape my teaching: 1. My cultural background may influence the teaching materials and examples I use, which could either broaden or limit students' understanding. 2. My linguistic background may affect my accent, pronunciation, and language proficiency, which could impact my effectiveness in English teaching.
