After school Hero goes to Mrs. Roth's house and learns more about the diamond. She learns the following things:
1. Arthur and Eleanor Murphy had a centuries old necklace with a walnut-sized diamond.
2. The diamond had been passed down to Eleanor through the Vere family (Eleanor's last name before she married).
3. The Vere family descended from nobility. This means that Eleanor's family had high positions when Kings and Queens ruled England.
4. The necklace was too expensive for the Murphy's to insure. So they only insured the diamond for one million dollars.
5. Eleanor became ill with cancer and the only treatment available for her was in Mexico. The health insurance company refused to pay for it. Eleanor refused to sell the necklace to pay for her treatment.
6. One day the diamond (not the necklace) was stolen. The thief had taken it off the necklace and didn't steal anything else from the house.
7. The police and insurance company believed that Arthur Murphy faked the robbery in order to get one million dollars from the insurance company.

Chapter 5 Summary
Hero comes home and talks to her father about Eleanor. Her father tells her that Eleanor is descended from Edward de Vere, a nobleman during Queen Elizabeth and William Shakespeare's time that could possibly be the real author of Shakespeare's work! He gives reasons and makes comparisons between Shakespeare and Edward de Vere (see the comparison chart below). Before going to sleep, Beatrice and Hero talk about how their first day at school went.
-A simple merchant with a basic education.
But the plays use advanced English and mention details about royal families.
-Had not traveled much.
But the plays talk about travels around Europe.
-When he died, nothing much was written about him.
How is this possible since he's considered one of the greatest writers in English history.
-There are no records left behind in his own handwriting. No books or documents. Only six signatures of his exist today.
Other great writers had libraries full of books written by them. Their original works are still widely available. How is it possible that Shakespeare's work is nowhere to be seen.
Edward de Vere
-a man of nobility.
-traveled a lot.
-a favorite of Queen Elizabeth.
-many events of his life resemble events in Shakespeare's plays.
-his personal Bible has notes in it that are similar to lines in Shakespeare's plays.
-he left behind many literary documents.
-he was a well known poet and playwright but no works have been ever published in his own name.
some people believe Edward de Vere used the name 'Shakespeare' to publish his own work. They believe that Edward de Vere is Shakespeare!

-the importance of conjunctions
-using your partner to your advantage
-working together with your partner
-pausing to think
Using your Partner to Your Advantage
If your partner is quiet, take over the conversation. It becomes your opportunity to excel.
But ask questions to your partner. If they cannot answer it, you can continue with a longer answer.
If your partner is talkative, ask questions to increase the amount of conversation. This also gives both of you more things to talk about.
The Importance of Conjunctions
and, or, but, so, because, also
-these conjunctions will really help you lengthen your answers in the speaking part.
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is pizza.
My favorite food is pizza because it is made of many different ingredients and so it makes it more delicious. So this is why I'm always eating pizza. Also, I like to drink cola with my pizza because it makes the pizza taste better.
Working Together With Your Partner
-Basic tips for speaking
1. Do not say ANYTHING in Turkish.
2. Give your partner a chance to speak. Take turns speaking.
3. Add more information (using conjunctions) only on personal questions (ex. Do you enjoy studying English?). Do NOT add extra information for factual questions (ex. What is your name?)
4. If you don't understand a question you could say:
a."Could you please tell me the meaning of ____"
b. "Could you please rephrase the question."
c. "Could you ask me the question in a different way."
(It is better to be clear about what the question is than to answer a question incorrectly.)
5. When you are asked to discuss a picture with your partner, you should agree with each other in the end.
Pausing to Think
If you need time to think about an answer use phrases like:
-"Hmm... let me think."
-"Thank you for asking."
