    Tyler,

    I really enjoyed your poem on memory. I thought that your social commentary about how we put so much value in the physical things that we will simply lose, but how we will truly value our memories, was very deep. I loved your use of anaphora in the poem and I really enjoyed the lines in which you talked about your first times doing…Read More

  • Amani,

    I think that your topic is fascinating. I was really surprised that one of your sources stated that there was “no critical window” in which a person needs to learn a new language. It led me to wonder if there was a window that was at least better to learn a language within, which you answered in your next paragraph! I agree that it is…Read More

    • Gwen,
      I really enjoyed reading this short essay about the different treatments for phobias. I didn’t even know about scented nap therapy before, how interesting! I thought it was great that you not only stated and explained the different treatments, but listed some of the advantages and disadvantages of them. For example, you mentioned that hypnosis is only 60% effective and that many people are skeptical because they view it as “magic”, but you also explained that it has worked for many patients. Then, you added a specific example to back your point and specified how it helped change someone’s life, which I thought was great. Here is an article that give more information about phobias and treatments: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/249347.php. Great job! Thanks for sharing and I look forward to reading more of what you write.

  • Claudia,

    I loved your book summary! It really made me interested in reading the book. I particularly enjoyed how you drew a comparison to your own community and then discussed the similarities and differences. I would love to know a little bit more about what you thought of the story itself. Did it seem predictable or did you find yourself…Read More
