Also you did a good job connecting your opinion to the book and your resources, especially the data and the quotation you used to explain your opinion and set the evidence. It is good for me to learn from you. Your post give me a lot new ideas about…Read More

    Wow interesting! I didn’t heard about the clothes line ban before, and also I agree with your opinion about wasting in United States. American technology is very developed but it also caused a lot of wasting and high labor costs. Thank you for sharing this. I really like this post and can’t wait to learn more.

    • Good paper. Even though we’re all basically immigrants it can be hard getting used to new people. I hope that this can change and we all get along better.

  • Thank you for sharing your story and I agree with you learning a now language is a challenge but it is very interesting. I am also an English language learner. Learning English is useful and best wishes for you in the future.

  • Hey Prerna,
    I like your opinion about to be American is to fight, I also talked about America history told us what we should be. I regard American history is a “fight” history, fight for freedom, fight for equality, and fight for our rights. You use a good related to the book The Absolutely True Diary of Part Time Indian we read these days, that…Read More

    • Hi Baoyang! I thought your post was really interesting. Some people think that the most important part of the American Dream is being successful and rich, so you don’t really hear much about freedom and equality relating to the American Dream. I liked how you used founding documents in order to back up your claim. It shows that this country actually was founded on exactly what you say the American Dream is: freedom and equality. Overall, I really like your post and can’t wait to learn more.

    • Hi Baoyang! I really enjoyed reading this article because there were so many connections with this article to mine. My article also talked about the strive for freedom in America and why that leads to America becoming such a melting pot. I talked about cultural openness and more of a broader standpoint overall. I liked how your essay took on more of a single point and heavily expanded upon that. You also used more of a history based type of essay by having a lot of your evidence from old documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, the “I have a dream” speech, and the Emancipation Proclamation. To further support your argument, I would recommend putting something more on where we our now to show not only what we believe in, but also if we are enacting our creed of freedom as you say. I’d recommend looking at things that could also counter your argument and take that into view. https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/abroad/america-is-home-to-many-brave-people-but-it-s-no-longer-the-land-of-the-free-1.3369612

  • Thank you to sharing your amazing story and I strongly agree that education is a responsibility to our life. When we have kids it is important to set an example for them because parents are their first teacher in the world. You are such a brave girl who can decide leave your country for a better future. You said “I’m not scared of being a f…Read More
