  • Hi Yadira,

    When you said, “Am I ready to graduate? Yes” I related to you. I love your positive perspective on life after High School and the goals you’ve set for yourself, you seem to have it all together.

  • Anna, I love the topic you chose. In general, society tends to glorify the violent most likely due to morbid curiosity. In addition to serial killers, we see this frequently in the news with horrific events such as mass shootings. When a mass shooting occurs the public immediately wants to know details about the person responsible, which results…Read More

    Kevin,
    This poem is really impressive! I’m so glad that you decided to share this aspect about you and your life and would love to learn more.

  • Yulisa,

    This is a really interesting topic. I really liked how concisely you summarized these sources and how you thoroughly you explained each concept. I would love to know more about the bias of standardized tests and how that affects minority groups and their college education.

  • 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…Read More

  • Claudia,

    You had some really solid arguments for why schools should limit the online speech of students. For example, “When young people have problems in their home or with friends outside the home, if affects them in school because they are only thinking about the problems and how they can solve them” this shows the reader a long term affect of…Read More

    In a futuristic society could an increase in surveillance and control lead to herd mentality and lack of individual thought?

    • I enjoyed your argument Abby, but one thing I found a bit off setting was your idea of mass shootings or other events as the “norm” kind of makes your argument seem insensitive or apathetic. Might’ve just been the way I read your post, but I think your writing is very good beside my earlier comment.

  • Ramon,

    The story you shared is the picture of the American dream. I’m so happy that you and your family were given the opportunity to live the U.S. and hopefully have a better future. Reading this, helped me realize how other people haven’t been given the same opportunities as I have and to be grateful for what I’ve been given. This is a…Read More

    Nicolette,

    Thank you for sharing your story. Your story gives a personal perspective on anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. Reading your narrative also helped me to understand how experiences at a young age can shape you for the rest of your life. It was really inspiring hearing how you were able to overcome obstacles especially when you…Read More

    Abby commented on the post, My Teaching Values

    Your point of view is very interesting, I think solidifying a philosophy would not only benefit the teacher, but it might also clarify many things for the student. “Diversity is important to me because it is who we are as a country. When I look around I can find someone of every gender, race, religion, ethnicity, etc.” I really enjoyed this point…Read More
