    I like how you made your poem so personal. You kind of described all of the different things that make you up as person, and I found that really cool. Keep up the good work!

  • Lauren,
    I really liked your post. You seemed to have learned a lot of stuff. I also found it interesting that 60 percent of students are not engaged. I was in a Montessori classroom and found it to be a very good fit for me, but not everyone is the same. Good luck on interviewing teachers!

  • Hey Lily,
    Nice post! I like how you said that before you do anything else you just write down your big ideas. I also agree that it would be very hard to find articles that are one sided. Keep up the good work!

    • This is very interesting that Asian beauty comes from confucianism. It’s sad that people feel the need to get plastic surgery in order to feel beautiful. Like GaGa said, “You were born this way.” Everyone is beautiful the way they are, and it is sad they see the need to change their appearance.

    • Hi Tevy, I found your post very intriguing and I’m looking forward to reading your paper once it is complete. I found interesting that in other parts of the world plastic surgery is something people praise. I agree with you about there being a lot of pressure to look this way or that way and it’s hard for anyone, especially girls. I’m excited to read your paper once it is all done.

    • Tevy,

      This is a really interesting topic to me, especially because I am of an Asian race. However, although I am Asian I was born and raised in American. I have never thought about plastic surgery for myself. I find it uncomfortable to even think about. However, I know some of my friends, who are Korean, wish to go through surgery. I even know someone who has gone through surgery because they feel ugly or insecure. It’s strange how different countries can have such different beauty standards. While scary, it is quite fascinating.
