Warm Up
What is a pronoun, and how do you decide which one to use?
There are many kinds of pronouns: personal, relative, indefinite, intensive, reflexive, interrogative, and demonstrative,
We are starting with personal pronouns
Two kinds of personal pronouns: subject and object.
The subject is the doer of the action; objects receive action.
Once you know if you are talking about doer or receiver of the action, you need to look at person, number, and gender to figure out which one to use.
Gender: Look at whether the noun being replaced is feminine, masculine, or neutral
Neutral: It, they, them, us, we
Is the noun being replaced singular or plural?
What pronoun would be used for John?
Is the noun being replaced masculine or feminine?
John voted for president yesterday.
Let's replace "John"
John is masculine, singuluar, and the speaker is speaking about someone else.
So, John is replaced with he.
He voted for president yesterday.
John voted for president yesterday.
Let's replace president.

7. The resort workers helped gave lessons to
them
.
Now, let's focus on the person pronouns called subject pronouns.
Subject pronouns replace the subject, the doer of the action.
Subject pronouns: I, you, he, she, it, we they
People like to say me, him, and her are doing something when the action is being done by more than one person...don't!
If you aren't sure of what pronoun to use, drop the other person or thing's name or pronoun out of the sentence. Then, determine whether you need a subject pronoun or not.
Let's discuss "When I was Puerto Rican"
Now, let's discuss the setting.
