Past Simple or Continuous When the dog bit Laura's leg, she screamed / was screaming.
In a sentence below I have chosen "was screaming". My teacher says that I am wrong, but I tried to explain to him that Laura is a girl, and whenever a dog bites a girl they usually scream for quite a long period of time. I don't want to argue with my teacher, but I am sure he is wrong to say that Past Simple should be used in the latter part of a sentence.
So, could you please tell me (FRANQLY) who is right and who is wrong!
Thank you everyone for your reply and good explanation!
