  • Dear, Alex
    I am interested by your post “Does Spongebob Make You Dumber?” because it is about children who go to preschool and they think slower by watching it. Knowing that they won’t be able to think in school because they aren’t learning from what they’re watching at home.

    School Social Media Free Speech Case

    In the article “School Social Media Free Speech Case”, I learned that a fourteen-year-old student Brandi Levy didn’t make it to the varsity of cheerleading that led her to post a mean comment on it. It led to her...

    • Dear Christian, I am infuriated by your post, School social media free speech case, because it really pushes the issue of students getting away with such hateful situations. I also agree with you entirely because it is not right for students to get away with hate comments, it can cause other situations which is very unnecessary.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, It makes schools look bad for having something like this happening and not doing anything about it. I think this is astonishing in a negative way due to the fact that it is occurring to this day and schools are letting students get by. I think there can really be a change!

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really want to see more of what I did not know about before. I am hoping to see more posts like this that can cause a change in schools!

    • This story about Brandy Levy not making the varsity cheer team and it ending in a lawsuit really drew me in. I would like to hear the situation in-depth and better explained. I would definitely be interested if I could relate in any way to the story. What were Levy’s motives and why did she feel it necessary to post about this in a bad way on social media? I like the idea of this article as social media is so prominent in our lives today.

    • This story and Supreme Court decision in “Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L.” really fascinated me too. I listened to a podcast with attorneys from both sides from the constitutional center “We the People”, which really helped me be able to see both sides on this issue. However, I strongly disagreed with the final Supreme Court decision. Even though she was off-campus, she had signed a team contract saying that she wouldn’t say negative stuff about the team either outside or inside of school. I feel like these types of contracts are important to the unity of school team athletics, and the reliability of these contracts in solving these issues was eroded seeing how far her particular case got. Do you think that her off-campus comments should have been counted as a violation of the cheer squad contract? I would love to know your thoughts, Paul

  • Dear Branigan,
    I understand your post, “Danger of Youth Sports” because it is dangerous to play a sport that has a high risk of getting a concussion. More with football because it is more likely that these youth who play would have a higher chance of getting injured.

    • Dear Christian:

      I am impressed by your post, “Can a Giant Laser Control the Weather?,” because it is surprising on how a laser is able to affect the weather. It is impressive how lasers are able to catch bolts of lighting a move them safely. One sentence you wrote that stood out to be was, “With the laser, they are trying to make it into an enormous lightning rod.” I think this is cool how they are able to make an enormous lighting rod out of high tech. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what your write next, because I really like how you provided great information. One of the things that will bring me back is if you are able to write more about the laser and how it works.

    • I really like how your title can pull people in. It is very eye catching, and leaves the reader curious as to what you were going to say.
