• This sounds like a very interesting story and one that is quite motivational. I think this is something that I would consider reading in the future because it sounds like there is a strong overall message. This summary is good because this gives us enough information to get into it and a strong purpose for why to read it.

  • This is a great issue that definitely needs to be assessed. I am glad that you are trying to make a stand on this topic. The facts that you bring in just make your issue that much more powerful and persuasive. I also like the image because it appeals to the reader in the form of pathos! Keep up the great work.

  • This is a very interesting poem. You used some diction that is very strong to express exactly what you feel and I think a lot of people appreciate that. I like how you started with a question and used your poem as the answer. Keep up the great work!

  • Dinakar commented on the post, Gun Control 1 year, 7 months ago

    I have to say I am completely anti-gun. I cannot imagine anyone being pro gun after everything that has happened this year alone. If we look at other countries such as Great Britain, Italy, and Sweden we see that they have little to no issues with guns because of their strict fun laws. It is time for us to change and I am glad students are voicing…[Read more]

  • This is a great topic that I think you can go into more depth with. It has to do with plasmids that can be genetically engineered. Most of our food is actually genetically engineered to keep the food away from pesticides and other food invaders. This is a very interesting issue because sometimes these chemicals can be harmful to us. I want to see…[Read more]

  • I love this topic because it is very applicable to people today. It is amazing how much our world has changed, and the fact media is able to move so quickly around the country. I think this is very well written and it is clear that the research was done. It is really helpful to use quotes to show the experts point of view on these issues. I also…[Read more]

  • I really like the two points of view that you showed us. It makes us think there are two distinct sides of the story. It would have been very interesting to see your point of view. This topic is very interesting but if you think about it the aliens could be like us and are waiting for us to go and find them. They could also be way to far away to…[Read more]

  • Quan, I agree with your point and it is very important that people acknowledge this problem so we can fix it as a team. It is a very serious subject that should be fixed because it can be very harmful. Great work! Keep it up

  • Nice job! I really believe you have strong points in this article. I loved the fact that you incorporated evidence that really strengthens your point. But I do think that Huck does not accept society as the story goes in. He continues to have the same attitude towards the world and the people. He does befriend a slave but I do not believe that…[Read more]

  • Sid- Great article! I loved how you introduced quotes into this. It really makes your argument stronger as well as really showing your audience how strong you feel about this issue. I think you could do a little bit more with the organization because you topic is a little all over the place at times and difficult to follow. Other than that I…[Read more]

    How has Huck grown?

    Huckleberry Finn is an thirteen year old boy from St. Petersburg, Missouri. St. Petersburg is located near the Mississippi river. He is born to a alcoholic dad who abuses him,

    • I really like how you were talking about how Huck never really had a real family. So Huck just bounced around from family to family. I think that is an important part on why he has grown. He got a family with Widow Douglas and so Huck had some discipline he had to follow. I also liked the part you put in there about how Huck treated Jim as property at first. But then when the story kept going on he treated him more and more as a person. He treated him as if it did not matter if he was black or a slave. I think that is a really important part in the story. people really should understand that part in the book. I think you can really expand you writing even more by using quotes from the book. But other than that I really like your writing. This is a great piece.

    • Great work Dinakar! I really enjoyed reading your analysis and I thought the quote that you analyzed was particularly strong and helped to strengthen your argument. Personally I agree that Huck grew over the course off the novel, based on his social upbringings by his father and the fact that he was always an outsider to society shows us that he never followed the social norms and his decisions were not as influenced by society as they were by his own conscience. But it is also apparent that Huck was also influenced by his time with the Widow and Miss Watson, this is evident when he writes the letter to the widow and Miss Watson but then crumples it up and throws it away. Based on this we can conclude that Huck was influenced by his conscience and the teachings of the widow and Miss Watson, and we can also conclude that Huck changed for the better as well. Overall I really enjoyed reading your piece and making connections within the text although I would try to incorporate more evidence that will only help to strengthen your argument!

    • Growing up without a parent’s definitely makes it hard to have a solid base. Parents are there to guide you in the decisions that you are making throughout your life. If someone were to grow up and have no contact or guidance what they do is going to be way different then someone growing in a family. Huck Beinging a white boy at first didn’t really accept Jim to be a friend and as you said Huck was messing around with him kind of treating him like a little kid. Good Job.

    Poverty

    I really do care about world poverty. I chose this topic after traveling to Trincomalee, Sri Lanka last summer and also looking at how the middle class is increasing. Which shows that the

  • This info graphic explains words and phrases that have to do with poverty. This really speaks to me because it shows all the ways we can help, and all the problems that go on in the world

  • This is a great point and a very important issue that is harming our society. It is important for us as a community to work together to be able to end this problem. I think we can find away if we all make a difference one at a time. I really agree with you though. Strong argument and great points. Try incorporating a little more evidence though!
