    I think I answer most of my question differently, because I felt more confidence after I attempted the program.

    The advantages of sharing my identity in a Powtoon format is I can give more image about the things that I describing, and I can explain my writing more clearly. The challenge for me is finding the perfect image and upload it on Powtoon, and writing the text and put it into place over and over again. I deal with this with my patient, and…[Read more]

    I am interesting on writing poem. This genre interest me because I’m not good at writing poem and I want to try create my own poem.

  • Dear lining:

    This is an really interesting topic for researching. From your writing I realize what education really affecting is your life attitude, and that’s how it affect us.

  • Are humans really dealing with their past mistakes?

    This question is very appealing to me because humanity is always an interesting topic to discover, for how easy it can break and how easy it can be forgotten.

    • Thanks smiley, I like you wrote by this sentence ”From all this, I see nothing about deal with mistake, I see another mistake build over another mistake. Maybe this is a sensitive topic to research, but they should be remember and live under justice.” it’s right because another mistake will come it up, and mistakes should be fix.

    • dear Huiwen Li,
      I am amazed about your post, Mistakes Over A Mistake, because it makes the reader realize all the wrong they may have done, it is so thoughtful to write about that cruelty caused by a human to his likeness. i think you show how inhuman it can be. and introduced us to the relief an apology can bring.
      one sentence you wrote that really stood out for me is “This question is very appealing to me because humanity is always an interesting topic to discover, for how easy it can break and how easy it can be forgotten.” this is so considerate and so true, despite the fact that it shows how ignorant some people can be. mistakes are easily made and people don’t even realize how hurt you can be .
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you express your thoughts clearly and reveal the facts hidden.

    This is interesting to me because people’s desire is changing in every second, so is hard to decide what they really want. And it’s interesting to find out what you really want.

    This is interesting to me was I have the same idea like you when I’m a kid. Dream about travel the world seeing what never been see before, just like having more advance education, looking at the world in a higher level.

    One question that come up to me was: “Are humans prepared to face the mistake they created? And having a plan to solve their mistake? “. I am interested in this because this’s a question that’s still unsolved.

  • Your writing is so real but beautiful and peaceful. I like your writing for you show the life so close to us, and I can understand you better after reading your writing. After all, writing is a communication on paper. Hope I can read more of your writing so I can understand you more and more.

    I’m interested in learning about racism or homelessness, because this two topic is happening right next us. If I can design my own class, I really wanna study about racism, because this topic is so sensitive and difficult to manage, where is the bottom line and how to achieve zero racism for everyone. About homelessness, how we can manage this problem?

    • Huiwen, I think homelessness would be fascinating to research, especially in NYC! You could explore what plans the Mayor proposes to do to improve access to homes or you could look up what it is like to live in a shelter. Here is an article about one of my former students and his experience with housing in NYC!…[Read more]

  • Your story remind me the first time I see snow. As a immigrant who also came from Guangdong, I understand the excitement in your sentence when you talk about snow. You remind me the time me and my mom run out to the backyard just for played snow in a snowstorm, and the snow made our cloth totally wet that time.

    My neighborhood is a peaceful bay . Things that made my neighborhood different that other could be the crowed restaurant next to the bay, or the ship stop next the water ready to carry more people explode the ocean, but for me is that little red church next to my home. Maybe it’s nothing or just a church for others, but not for me. I’m not a…[Read more]
