my name is Maria I have paragraph assignment I have to do and I need to correct the paragraph, so please I need help on it :


Yesterday in history class, we will study the early women's movement in the United States. This movement is beginning in the late nineteenth century, but it gained power after working women and social reformers to join upper-class women in the struggle around 1910. Last night, for a long time, I am thinking about these strong women. They were holding open-air meetings and large parades, and they argued their cause with passion and logic. They were very courageous. My interest in this movement is not typical for me; usually, I had been interested only in reading about the United States and its foreign policy. However, to learn about these women opened my eyes. Some day, I hope I had contributed to the advancement of women in American society, too.Perhaps I influence the people around me in a positive way. When I have done that, I feel very good about myself.

Hi Maria

You need to look at each verb in the paragraph and ask yourself if the tense of the verb is right or not. Some of them are right, some are not. I would go through and underline each verb. Make a note if you think there's something wrong with it. If you have a go and post your attempt back to us, one of us will pick it up and have a look for you. I've done the first one ...

- Yesterday in history class, we will study the early women's movement in the United States.

[=> 'Yesterday' tells us it happened in the past: it should be 'we studied']

With regards, Dave
