• Dear Aida,
    I am interested by your post, “Why I am Mysterious as Hell”, because you wrote it like it was a poem and you talk about personal feelings. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was: “Many people think they have figured me out. I shake my head.” I think this is an interesting sentence because you talk about different views of how…[Read more]

  • Dear Yadira,

    I am interested by your post, “It describes me but doesn’t finalize,” because you talk about what your name means to you and what it means to other people. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “I want to be called whatever you want to call me.” I think this is confusing to me because a lot of people who get called out of…[Read more]

  • Dear Eli,

    OUSD Budget Cut


    “The Oakland Unified School District’s Board of Education passes a multimillion-dollar midyear budget cut.” (NBC Bay Area). OUSD is alr

    • Dear Angel,
      This 9$ Million Dollar Budget cut affects all schools in the OUSD district because all schools in the district in a whole will lack materials, and maybe will be less efficient at educating students.

    • Dear Angel
      I’m very impressed by you level of work. Your blog called “$9 MILLION DOLLAR BUDGET CUT FROM THE OUSD” was a really good blog and you really explained everything that is going on. It shows that you did a lot of good research and that you know what you’re talking talking about and how much you care about oakland. One sentence that sticked out to me was the one that said “They might say students aren’t using supplies correctly or teachers were spending too much on unnecessary products and that’s the reason there’s a cut. But, I would say, even if those scenarios were true, I strongly believe cutting $9 million dollars from OUSD will be a solution, it makes people suffer more than it helps.” Well this is true and you’re right. I really liked your blog and I want to continue seeing your writing. Thank you for taking your time and writing.


    This story takes place in Oakland,

    A strong rivalry

    Where two sides, gangs, both feel more powerful than the other

    Neither side is afraid to prove that

    Violence is strong in this rivalry

    Dear Mario,
    Your box is really interesting to me because I can relate to most of the objects in your box. I also think that this box also clearly represents you because they’re all things you like and are interested in. One thing I like about your box is that you have a picture of yourself in it because I only seen a couple of people with…[Read more]

  • Dear Sevin,
    I agree that people should be able to protest and it’s also cool to see people who are on TV and athletes take a knee even though the president doesn’t agree. Even though people take a knee, they still have respect for the the American flag but don’t agree with how divided America is. People feel like they have to protest, esp…[Read more]

  • I am interested about your letter, “Charlottesville Riot”, because this story was all over the news. I wonder how the people in Charlottesville feel about the riots and violence. I also wonder what was going through the rioters minds when they were protesting.

  • I am interested about your letter, “Charlottesville Riot” because I seen a lot of stories about the riots on the news. How long do you think the riots are going to last? Do you think there are going to be more rioters or the riots are going to go away? Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because if I like this writing,…[Read more]
