• Dear Yasmin

    I have noticed that you put a lot of time and effort into this blog and how every piece of evidence is relevant to your topic. One part of your blog that stood out was when you interviewed a 9 year child and how they even give their opinion and that you are not just asking adults about their thoughts but a also children too. I hope…[Read more]

  • Dear Ingrid

    I like how you show that landlords are increasing rents and which is terrible for low wage families and show that they are having a horrible impact to families and showing the reasoning behind why people leave Oakland to look for a better home. Something that stood out from your work is when you show that you interview families and…[Read more]

  • Do You Care About The Homeless In your Community?



    How many homeless people have you seen in Oakland? They are everywhere in the streets. There are tents with people who are homeless and don’t have mon

    • Estimado Adrian:

      Estoy muy encantada por su publicación, “Le gustan los sin techo de su comunidad,” porque me gusta como hablas de ayudar a las personas que no tienen un hogar por que son desalojados ya que la la renta de las casas son elevadas.

      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “Todo el mundo debe ayudar a las personas sin hogar aunque sólo sea un poco, porque un poco puede ayudar y algo poco puede ser grande.” Creo que esto es muy cierto, porque si apoyas a alguien con poquito esas personas pueden usar esa poquita ayuda para encontrar algo con lo que puedan sobrevivir y al menos pueden conseguir algo de comer.

      Gracias por su escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque me gusta mucho la forma que escribes y en la forma que te expresas, aparte me haces razonar con estas situaciones.

    • dear adrian ,
      you blog was really interesting to read. the picture of the dog caught my attention and made me feel so many emotions. i like how you included a chart to show the homelessness rates and all that. i just have one question for you : what made you choose this topic ?
      good job !

    • Adrian,

      This article was really helpful in understanding some of the commonly overlooked struggles of the homeless population. I really enjoyed how you did an interview with someone in your community; it shows that you’re truly committed to this problem and are actively seeking ways to help. In addition, the statistics you included effectively supported your argument and it gave a nice visual representation of the problem. Although this article was very well written, I would suggest that you go a bit deeper into the problem. Discuss a bit more about why people are homeless and active steps that our community can take to help this population. Here’s an article that you may find helpful https://www.nationalhomeless.org/factsheets/addiction.pdf

  • Hello, My name Adrian Terriquez, this is my poem that is about growing up and it connects to the book Romeo And Juliet By William Shakespear When growing up you find obstacles in your way. Every one of those o

    • Dear Adrian,
      I like your poem it’s strong it’s simple and gets to the main point that “growing up wasn’t always easy” your poem was strong i liked when you said “There are bullets,
      Bullets that dance through the air
      And hit innocents”
      This was really strong because it’s true we see and hear innocent people get murdered by mean people all the time. Keep it up hope your next poem is as good as this one!

    Dear Oswaldo
    One part of your shadow box that really stood out to me was the picture of your father. The picture of your father really shows that you love your family. I also agree with the family love, another thing that stood out for me was your soccer field that shows that you enjoy sports and especially soccer.Nice job on your shadow box !

  • Dear Leo

    I like your items with the shadow box especially the dog it looks realistic I am also doing the same project with the shadow. One question, what does the dog represent in the shadow box? Another question is, what do people call you for a dominant narrative? Other than that, the box looks great and the patches are cool
