Listen to the second part of Asha’s conversation with Mrs. Polanski. Asha: Well, things have certainly changed since you were young. What was your most exciting moment as an adolescent? Mrs. Polanski: Well, you know as a child I loved to sing, and so I suppose it was when, at the age of 15, I traveled all the way from New Waterford to Sydney to sing in a big church choir. The church was packed. I guess it was probably my scariest moment too as a child. Asha: Sounds exciting! Did you have a best friend as a child? Mrs. Polanski: Yes, I did – still do, in fact. Anne Crowell. She lived down the road from me when we were growing up. We married brothers and so we’ve always been close. We’re both widows today and we live in the same retirement home. Indeed, we’re still the best of friends -- even after 89 years! 10. B Pair of Group Work. 1. What was Mrs. Polanski’s most exciting moment as an adolescent? 2. What was her scariest moment? 3.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
