Judith and Imelda, I really enjoyed your post because I think that being an ally for the LGBTQ+ community is extremely important. One side that I think you need to address is the religious aspect. I know people who would never say anything bad about a person who identified as...

Emma, I found your post absolutely fascinating. I loved your use of detail and statistics to convey the real damage that Dr. Duntsch did during his years as a surgeon. For example, the statistic that he killed or paralyzed 31/38 of his patients really showed how evil he was...

Coralie, I was really moved by your poem. I loved how each word painted the picture of the storm, but I truly connected with your message. Sometimes we all get so caught up in our own heads and we feel this overwhelming sense of inferiority. It can depress us and...

Amani, I really enjoyed reading your post about language learning. Specifically, I thought that you did a great job clarifying the neuroscience behind language learning. Your explanation of how infant's brains are constantly adjusting their links and neural circuits to "form a way in which speaking and understanding their native...

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...

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...

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...

Branigan, I think that this a very interesting topic. I have always associated head trauma with football and boxing, but not hockey. I enjoyed learning about Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and I think that you did a really nice job summarizing it to make it easy to understand. I would be...

Amber, I absolutely loved your last post! I think that your essay has some really great ideas in it. I appreciated how in the second paragraph you quoted a well respected source to lend credibility to your argument. I also liked how you cited a court case in the fourth...

Enrique, What a great story about your connections to the source "Kareem." I especially liked when you shared that you knew people who lived in Nebraska like him but then talked about the differences between their lives and Kareem's life. I would have loved to know a little bit more...

Johnna, I really enjoyed reading your piece. It definitely made me want to check out "Behold the Dreamers." My favorite part of your essay was the section in which you talk about how the book made you realize just how lucky you are to be an American. I had a...

Nicolette, This is such a brave story. Thank you so much for sharing. Your personal narrative about your experiences in elementary school helped me to understand a little bit about how self confidence can deteriorate from a young age. I am so sorry that you had to go through that....

Mariah, I found your article very interesting. I found this article (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-21/gay-conversion-therapy-survivors-on-greg-hunt-comments/9679416) which talks about survivors of gay conversion therapy. It could bring in some more emotion to a very scientific topic. I thought your analysis was very through and made logical sense. I think you did a great...

Please wait...
