    Peyton,

    I really enjoyed reading your thoughts and research in education reform. I totally agree with your fact that, “ on average, only 37% of the curriculum in school is used in everyday life, and that the rest of the information is forgotten and never used” which needs to be changed. I also believe that incorporating STEM into our daily edu…Read More

  • Molly,
    I liked how you connected this blog post to your previous one which allowed me to understand the context of both of your writings. I also liked how you involved empathy and the current pandemic because those two can be very well linked together and you used them appropriately. I really enjoyed reading what you had to say!

    • Karla,

      I really enjoyed reading your post! I liked how you described women’s presence in sports and their representation in broadcasted athletic events. I completely agree that women are constantly looked down upon or viewed in the wrong light when comes to coverage in sports. Women’s sports are clearly seen as less significant, despite putting in the same (if not more) work than their male counterparts. The thing you said that stood out to me the most was the statement “most stories that are relating to sports and women usually don’t include the highlight of their careers rather the issues going on with their bodies or anything else health related.” I believe that this statement is undeniably true; it seems no matter what, women are criticized for how they look, even if they are athletes, who are some of the fittest and strongest people (physically and mentally). I found your post to be absolutely intriguing, and I am looking forward to reading more of your works in the future!

  • Paige,

    First of all, loved how you wrote this about Shawn.. his new album is literally amazing – but so is your writing! I totally agree with him “ saving 2020” especially during these hard times it is hard to find joy sometimes but his documentary allowed us to see even the most perfect people in pain sometimes which lets us relate to the…Read More
