    • Interesting infographic you put some really good examples. The only question I have is how do you know the adult services is forced? What if people chooses to do it on their own.

    • Hi Melaina,
      I think this topic is very important to discuss. I think you did a great job pulling out notes in your annotations. Sex trafficking a serious topics and many people are not able to find the signs of harm when just walking down the street or going over to a guy friends house. I think you were able to pull out things that will allow readers to further their learning about the topic.

    • This was very well written and I love how many examples you gave. You used them to show how Huck represents different problems in society that are found between the lines. You gave a clear picture as to what Huck looks like and how he acts as a young boy. I think this is great work! Good Job!

    • Melaina,
      This moral compass piece if Huck is very well written. I agree 100% with you on the idea that Huck was created to be a representation of a poor moral compass. I also think that the quote you integrated in your text shows how huck really grew as a character.

    • Nice work Melaina. I really liked your work. I agree that even with or without the implementation of the DARE program, it’s up to the kids who are in the program to make the choices. I also think that DARE will help scare those students into staying away from bad choices that are shown through DARE. Your essay was short but concise, and also included important details. Great job!

    • Nice work Melaina, I like your point about drug and DARE program. I think as long as children realize how thee drugs would damage us and is very dangerous, it will decrease the using of drug in the younger age. DARE program can help younger people living in a better live and enjoy the beautiful of the world. Good job!

    • Melaina, I liked your analysis about this piece, looking at a moment where Mark Twain uses a touchy topic in his book. Great job for having a good eye to see this. I agree that Twain was a risky writer and included other subjects that provoked some controversy. Also, I think that another big example of his will to risk things is including slave life in the south, which caused his book to be banned during his time. I also agree that Huck’s “teachings” from his dad caused him to misbehave and have him have an internal struggle in the religion Miss Watson and Widow Douglas is trying to teach him. Nice work!

    • I think that teachers and school districts need to take into consideration the things you are describing. Everyone wants to have a successful life after high school, and after college, so I think that we need to start learning tasks we actually need in the real world.

    • I agree with your argument. Students these days should be given classes that will help them in real life situations. Although it depends on what field of inquiry your are going into, it really applies to all high schoolers who don’t know what they want to do yet.
