    • Amani,

      I really enjoyed reading your post about language learning. Specifically, I thought that you did a great job clarifying the neuroscience behind language learning. Your explanation of how infant’s brains are constantly adjusting their links and neural circuits to “form a way in which speaking and understanding their native language can come without thinking” really allowed me to grasp this concept. I would love to know if this brain malleability continues into childhood and allows children to learn languages more easily than adults, albeit less easily than infants. This article talks a little bit about the neuroscience behind young children learning a new language and I think that could add another dimension to an already very compelling topic: http://www.spanishworkshopforchildren.com/learning-second-language-easier-children/.

      I can’t wait to read more about the language learning process and the science behind it. Awesome work!

    • Amani, I thought your paper flowed very well and helped the reader understand the source you referred to. I found Chomsky’s Theory of Language Acquisition incredibly intriguing. I think it is very important to further research this topic for your paper. Similarly, I think it is great that you are discussing bilingual education. Knowing multiple languages is a necessity in this day in age and I would love to hear more about it. Here is an article you might find interesting https://www.theedadvocate.org/bilingual-education-5-reasons-it-should-be-required/. It just discusses how bilingual education progresses differently at different ages and for different people. Overall great job!

  • Stephen,
    Wow, this is a great poem! Not only is it well written and structured, but it is something that many teenagers can relate to. Your description of how you feel going to school everyday is something that many of us feel. I appreciate your honestly in your poem. Thank you for sharing.

  • Hailey, as a competitive athlete this is a very interesting topic for me to read about. I like how you mentioned that, although competition may seem like a negative thing, sometimes it is important in a team and a motivation for some. Here is a link to an overview of a book called “The Winner’s Mind”, which I think you might enjoy reading about…Read More

  • Diego,
    I like your take on 1984. Although I don’t think killing everyone is the best answer, I think it would be a good idea to remove the proles and allow them to live in a society that is similar to one today, where they have more free will. There are many reasons why this is a good idea. For one, they are the ones least influenced by the P…Read More
