    How Students Lives Have Been Affected by the Ongoing Pandemic

    The pandemic has affected families across the world, people have lost jobs, houses, and even family members. Life has been a struggle for low-income families during these times. Although, students have had just as a hard time. This pandemic...

    • Dear Kayla:
      I resonate with your post, “How Students Lives Have Been Affected by the Ongoing Pandemic,” because it highlights the various reasons why students are struggling during the pandemic. There were a lot of factors adding to the stress we have as students on top of already stressful school work. Although many teachers have shown that they do care and understand what it is we are going through (which I appreciate), this doesn’t ease the stress from any of our issues. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Although our teachers have done their best to make our school years manageable, the minimum amount of work still feels like piles upon piles of homework on our hands.” This stood out to me because during distance learning I could feel that teachers were really sympathizing with us, however, other responsibilities and problems made everything all that more difficult. Some people (as you mentioned) had to take care of siblings or even take up a job and the mental toll caused by this really made the school year challenging for many despite teachers’ efforts. Thank you for your writing! I look forward to seeing what you write next because I really enjoyed how you conveyed the things students had weighed on them this year. It really made me feel as though someone else felt the same as I did. – Maritza ^^*

  • Dear Lisa,
    I was excited to read your post because you mention not only bisexuals but LGBTQ in general. I really liked how you added a quote to further explain your thesis. My favorite line is “The only way to move forward is to include bi individuals as major figures in the creation, development, and portrayals of such characters.” I enjoyed…Read More

    Women's Rights

    Between 1848 and 1920, there was first women’s rights movement in the U.S. At that time, women did not have the right to vote. Thus, women could not help to make society or law. They did not have any...

    • Dear Kayla, I am really happy that you wrote about Womenś rights because we both have the same hopes for females. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is, ¨It is not fair¨. This really stands out to me because as females we have came a very long way and I agree that itś not fair but life is not fair. We need to make a change for the better. Thank you for your writing and I look forward to reading your future posts.

    • Dear Kayla:
      I was very intrigued by your post, “Women’s Rights” because this is a topic I haven’t seen many people talk about. Reading about the women who helped us get where we are now is amazing. I never realized how it was before we had rights and how much they put up with. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be able to speak up for what we believe in. I also have to agree with you about women still having some issues with our rights. For example the difference between womens and mens salaries. These are things that need to be changed for women to prosper. Thank you for your writing. I look. forward to seeing what you will write about next.

    • Dear kayla,

      your post on “Women’s Rights” really caught my attention, because its always interesting to learn about the rights we as women have. Another reason it grabbed my attention was because there was many unfair things that happened to the women who were fighting. I also agree that women should be getting the same salaries as men. They have full ability to do what a man does so they should be getting the same pay. It truly is sad to know this still happens in this society. Thank you for your awesome post about “Women’s Rights” because this is an important topic and needs attention.

    • Dear Kayla 

      I am very supportive of your post, “ Women’s Rights” because I agree with you that women are often treated unfairly in our society. It is important to raise awareness of this problem because this has been something that has been occurring and is not new. 
      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is,” there is the unfair payment between men and women.” I think this is unprofessional especially in a workplace because both genders put in the same amount of work, time, dedication just for women to be paid less. This type of segregation can deteriorate a woman’s value and make them question themselves as to why men are superior. 
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like how you listed examples of ongoing and past issues regarding women’s rights. I would like to hear from you about why is this still an ongoing issue and other ways we can raise awareness to prevent issues like this.

    Not too many years ago, America was labeled with signs everywhere stating whether or not Black people were welcome in the area or not. White people segregated the African Americans into their own sections to separate themselves from them....

  • Dear Estrella
    I thought your post was very interesting because it represents the progression that America has grown since years ago. Although we ended segregation in schools, you have made it evident that racism still exists in the US today. A sentence that stood out to me was “A movement like this doesn’t allow schools in predominantly black a…Read More
