1: In volleyball each side gets the ball a total of three times before sending it back over the net, however, you don't have to hit it three times. | Normally, the first touch is a pass (bottom right), the second is a set (top left), and lastly, a hit (middle right). Also, there is a total of 6 players on each side of the court.
2: Poetry is a stanzas which flows fluently. They can include rhythm, rhyme scheme, line couplets, and many more elements. Poetry is a good way to making writing extremely fun to read. There are many different moods to each poem; it could be depressing poems or exciting poems.

4: Most Chinese people have the typical stereotype of being smart. This is common but not always true. Starting back in ancient times, the people of China have been told to act as the role they are. Girls and boys, adults and kids, and the rich and the poor, all act differently. The girls get married at a young age and move into their husbands house.
5: We went more in depth on volleyball because in Millicent Min, Girl Genius, Millicent gets signed up for volleyball by her mom in the book. Poetry ties in because she is taking a poetry college course during her summer. Millicent Min is | an extremely gifted kid and so it made sense to go more in depth on how she generally thinks. Stanford Wong and Millicent Min are both Chinese and because of Millicent the teachers expect all the Chinese kids to be as smart as her.
