  • Dear Ruyi,

    I think this is a great project and I support what you are trying to do. I believe that everyone should have the same rights and I think that it is good that you are addressing that and trying to make a change. The website https://lgbt.columbian.gwu.edu has a lot of good information about it that may help your research as…Read More

  • Dear Matt,

    I 100% agree with this post, because I believe as well that homework is good to an extent, but teachers are starting to give so much more, because they are trying to cover so much more material, but at this point it is only affecting the students. On this website,…Read More

    • Hey Emily,
      I liked your argument as to why teachers and schools should give out less homework to students. It is really important to maximize the students potential to learn, and getting enough sleep is vital to a good learning experience. I liked when you said that good sleeping habits will lead to a long lasting, healthier lifestyle. This is very true. Here is a link I found that you might like about how people can get more sleep. https://www.cancer.org/latest-news/how-to-get-more-sleep.html

    • Dear Emily,
      I am inspired by your story, “More sleep? I think Yes!” because it is very powerful and authoritative. The way you emhaziede the idea to having a good sleep in teens years, just because developed the brain and it will lead us to do a better job at academic life by concentrating a lesson or topic.

      One line that stands out for me is, “ Not enough sleep can cause children to become obese, develop type 2 diabeters, get in car accidents, along with depressoin, anxiety, and irritablity” this point is absoulately true and intriguing. This teaches us that we should have a good sleep in order to avoid this problem because this would ruin our normal life into worse.

      Another line that stands out for me, “ if students are able to develop good sleep habits it will lead to a long lasting healthier life than those who do not get the proper amount of sleep” there is a phrase in english its says, Health is wealth. When our health is fine, its helps us to do things very fast and easily.
      Your story reminds me of my childhood when my mom used to say,“Go to sleep early, so you can wake up early in the morning and feels fresh and energetic.”

      Thanks for your story. I am looking forward to seeing what you make next.

      • Emily,

        Reading your essay was a blast. In all reality students who aren’t recieving the proper amount of sleep will afect their performance. I also believe this issue is so incredibly underrated, as we are still developing our brains, it is important that we take certain meausres and take care of our body both physical and mentally As it affects both equally.. As a student it is so hard because we are constantly overflowed with assignments,projects, therefore we lack sleep which increases our stress levels.

    • Hi Emily,
      I was interested in your essay, because I have believed for a long time that people need to get more sleep. Sleep is important for people of all ages but especially kids. One thing that you said that stuck out to me was ” if students develop good sleep habits it will lead to a long lasting healthier life”. I agree I think that healthy living is all about make the right choices and then developing those things into habits. I also agree that parents should take away electronics from kids at night. I know that personally I sometimes go to bed early but then end up playing on my phone late into the night. Thanks for sharing, I support your argument and I hope you continue to write about it.

    • Hi Emily,
      I really enjoyed reading your argument and agree with your statement especially since it affects myself and many people I know everyday. Sleep is very essential and teenagers these days are not getting enough due to new technology and homework, like you mentioned. I found another source that gives more examples about why we need sleep: https://www.sleepfoundation.org/articles/why-do-we-need-sleep

    • Hi Emily,
      I am interested in your topic. Nowadays, plenty of students cannot get enough sleep when they studied at school. In order to get a good great, students need to make the decision between sleep and grade. Most of them will choose to give up the sleep. They can use the sleep time to study. It is really bad for students health. What’ more, if students cannot get enough sleep, they will fall asleep in the class. Also, they will feel tired or sick.

    Dear Kaya,
    I 100 percent agree with your post, because medical marijuana has helped so many people and it is natural. It is also much cheaper than most over the counter drugs, which can help so many people across America with their health and financial situation. I think this was a great post and here is a link to why it should be legalized from…Read More
