Conversion Therapy: An Infograph View Comment
  • @Floresc.2018
  • June 1, 2017

Ayla, amazing job with your infographic. Conversion therapy is something that horrifies me and I wish it got more attention as an issue we need to fix. I love how you included a quot because it really shows how terrible and demeaning conversion therapy is in a more personal...

Evan, this is an extremely well written piece. I love how you looked at this issue from many sides, and provided many arguments to support your idea. I also like how you not only talked about the issue but also: why it is important and what we should do...

Abinaov, I like how the images in your infographic really relate to your topic. I also like how many facts you used to support your topic as well as draw people in. I completely agree with you that climate change is a big issue and needs to be...

I really like your info-graphic. I agree that the Syrian war is a really big issue and more needs to be done to help Syria refugees and those affected by the war. I also like how you included possible solutions. Awesome job!

I really love both this info-graphic and the topic you are highlighting. As someone who deals with a variety of mental illnesses, and experiences how school contributes significantly to these issues, I relate to this topic a lot. I think it's really important that schools start putting the welfare...

  • May 30, 2017

Awesome job! Your info-graphic is very visually pleasing and over an important issue. I agree with you that sexism in the tech industry and the lack of opportunities for women is a big issue that needs to be fixed. Keep up the good work!

Hi Jordan, nice work on this paper! I agree with you that although Huck struggles with doing what society tells him is right vs what he believes is right, he ultimately chooses to follow his heart. I really liked the evidence you used to support this because it was...

Would You Say He’s Racist? View Comment

  • May 18, 2017

Hi Sejal, I found this piece very well written and interesting. I personally agree with you that Twain was not racist, but rather trying to shed light on racism in the south. I really like the point you made that if Twain really was racist he wouldn't be trying...

Xochitl, I completely agree with you that climate change is an important issue. It really scares me how much the planet is changing and the effects that has on animals and us. It would also really interest me to see the legislation that could be passed to improve...

You did an amazing job with telling this story. I felt really immersed and touched. I can't imagine being separated from your family like that and I really commend you for finding courage, strength, and being connected with your family even though they were so far away. Awesome job!

  • May 4, 2017

Hi Celia! I also think that this quote is important in the novel. It shows how Huck Is conflicted about what he has grown up knowing and what he is beginning to learn about Jim. Twain does a really good job of using this conflict in order to...

I really liked how you highlighted the amount of irony Mark Twain uses throughout the novel in order to make a point. It is interesting to see how society's and Miss Watson's view of what is civilized in actuality is much more uncivilized. Overall, I think you did...

I agree that you have to do what you love. As someone who wants to have a career as an artist I really relate to this topic because art is something I love and enjoy. I would rather have an enjoyable life making art than be rich but unhappy....

Hi Irene, I'm your secret writing pal. I also really agree with your point that college tuition is too high and needs to be lowered. Have a nice day!

Kristy, I agree with your point that school shooting are horrible and a problem that needs to be addressed. Your letter is very powerful and I loved how you supported your arguments with real life examples and facts. I also liked how you provided ways to change and improve the...

Cecilia, I love this poem so much. Dress codes are something that really bother me because I often see stories of girls being dress coded even when they were fully covered. It's so annoying that young girls are told to cover every part of themselves instead of boys being...

Xochitl,I totally agree that college should be made cheaper. I think it benefits the nation as a whole if we have higher educated citizens and people who are not trying to pay off their student loans for the rest of their lives. It's so ridiculous how much the cost...

Stop TRAP-ping Clinics View Comment
  • @Floresc.2018
  • September 22, 2016

Sejal, I had no idea these TRAP laws were a thing and I find it so interesting that these laws exist. Instead of helping women and making abortions safer, these laws hurt women in serious trouble or women who not only want, but in some cases need abortions. I...
