  • Dear Kenya,

    I like your blog “Police Brutality Cause and Effect in Oakland”, because you talk about how police brutality impacts people and the community along with the effects police brutality has on the people and the community. One sentence that stood out to me is when you wrote “Oakland has been affected by this factor because police offic…Read More

  • Dear Christina,

    I am amazed by your essay “Gentrification is Hurting Us” because you talk about the realities happening in our community that people might be afraid to talk about. One part in your essay that stood out to me is where you talk about how rent is increasing and the impact it has on people. I love how you included a picture of a cha…Read More

    • I will keep your suggestions for next time. 🙂

      A few questions I have for you are..

      • What is a preservice teacher?
      • What do you do as a teacher to make sure your students that come from the foster system to feel safe and aren’t distracted by everything that is happening to them?
    • Hi Ariana, I really enjoyed reading your post on the foster care system. I also wrote an article about the foster care system and have also noticed that many of the children there are not being treated right. Like you mentioned how children are not being supported or cared for by their foster parents. Although, this might not always happen, there are many other cases where foster families have supported children which is amazing and hopefully there are more families like this. In your posts you have made some really good points and more people should look deep into this issue and can help the kids in the foster system.

    Dear Joseph,

    I am intrigued by your poem because you made your poem rhyme and that made it really interesting and fun to read. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Apparently the strength of hate is unconditional, Yet whenever I see the word it’s only two dimensional”. This stood out to me because I feel like its true but also it ca…Read More

      Thank you so much for sharing your poetry, it was really good! My favorite line was “Love, it is lucky to be found like the treasure that is hidden underground where the X marks the spot only to find that X is nowhere to be found” I liked this line because it is a great metaphor for how rare and hard it is to find true love. A second line that was very powerful to me was “It is a privilege we often take for granted, now a days we throw “I love you’s” like it doesn’t mean anything “ I liked this line a lot because saying I love you should mean something when you say it. Some people take it for granted when it should be cherished. This poem reminded me of the quote “ It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are” by Roy E. Disney. It reminded me of this quote because Romeo and Juliet felt true love for each other, that’s why when Juliet saw that Romeo was dead she made the decision to kill herself too. Thank you for sharing your poem with me and I look forward to reading your next post!

      • Dear Hannah,

        Thank you so much for reading my poem. The part if your comment that stood out to me was when you put in a quote that reminded you of what I wrote- “ It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are” by Roy E. Disney. This stood out to me because I haven’t seen a comment that has included a quote that the commenter puts in. Look forward to hearing back!

    • Hey Ariana,
      I love how you write your poetry! Infact, my favorite part of your poem was ”Now a days we throw “I love you’s” like it doesn’t mean anything”. I love it because it shows how real love is hard to find, and that what Romeo and Juliet had was real. And I also like how you keep repeating the words “some people” that way you can tell the difference between “love” now and in a story. I really like your poem, and I look forward to seeing what else you upload :)))

    • Hello Tania, I really loved your poem on “love.” In your poem, you said, “Some people give love about a hundred tries, some people just give up.” I thought this line was an amazing way to end your poem because it triggered an emotional appeal and at the same time it made me want to read more even though it was the end. I noticed you connected your poem on what love is to Romeo and Juliet and I think you did amazing. I like how you describe love as something that is hard to find and I agree with you about how you said many people throw the word “love” around too many times because even I use it on people who I don’t necessarily “love.” Overall, great job on your poem!
