• Dear GMOs,

    From all the research I have done, there are still many things that are mysterious with this topic. From the four articles I have found, they all say that there is no real proof or evidence that

    • Dear Mariah

      I am shocked with your post, “Taking a Position on GMOs”, because before reading this letter I thought GMOs were safe. I had read many positive things about GMOs, like, it’s easier and cheaper to make more food for growing population than to plant a lot more crops. Also, I had heard that they were safe but I guess it was an article or it was a person that was agreeing with GMOs because they did not write down the negative affects about them. After reading your post I feel like I wouldn’t be able to eat a genetically modified organism like, food.

    • I feel like the example given on the video is a very simple yet complex, but the way you simplified it even more and made it seem like an easy topic just scopes the genetic engineering more and allows more understanding.

  • I was a little confused when you said “To address this issue, we think that police should have to go through therapy before being able to join the police force to make sure they are both mentally and emotionally fit.” What do you mean by this? Do you suggest all policemen should go into therapy? I think this would work if people who worked in the…[Read more]

I was able to look at the piktochart, and the evidence provided was a good start, but you should also give the reader the article title to those facts you have on there. The thesis in the beginning could be rewritten, so that it gives the reader a sense of what’s going on about racial…[Read more]

  • Your evidence and facts are really good when it talks about your topic for nuclear weapons. I couldn’t really find a thesis to this, so it was kind of confusing for me to understand. I would suggest piecing what you got from your evidence and solutions into making a thesis. You should also broaden your solution, like giving a number to show how…[Read more]

    • What about the possible consequences of raising minimum wage? Increasing the minimum wage could also cause things to become more expensive because companies will need to fill the void of the money they lose when paying higher wages. Companies that are smaller and don’t have the funds to pay employees at higher rates could go out of business which would lead to job loss and the problem of people not being able to sustain themselves is worsened instead of fixed.
