Brendon, I like your thoughts on the American Dream! I think we still try to hold on to that idea as a country when it's a bit outdated. I also think it's more geared towards those who are more privileged. I would suggest you take a look at The American...

Eric, I've always been wanting to read this book. You made me want to pick it up and finally read it! I like how you tied history into your conversation. That's an important aspect of talking about racism and movements like the Civil Rights movements. I like that you decided...

Rachel, You made me want to read this book! You're discussing a topic that I think we often take for granted. We don't talk about the complications of family enough. Especially when it comes to ideas like biological vs. adoptive family. I like how you're thinking about these ideas in...

Caroline, I love your ideas here! I think most people in our generation view failure as this terrible thing. In reality, we can learn from it. Your ties to history with Disney really helped me understand your point here. I also love the work you did with tying this to...

Hello, Cooper, I really like your work here! This is such an important topic to bring to light. It's one we need to talk about more. Your book choice helps support your argument. You could've also discussed the movie adaption, too. Overall, though, amazing work! I would love to hear...

Benjamin, I love how you tie literature in this writing! Especially since the book you read brings light to racism towards Native Americans. That is a situation that gets less attention than other forms of racism. You could b a bit more in-depth with some of your points, though. Great...

Naomi, I love your work here. You have brought an important issue to light in a way that is educational and formal. Your outlook lets the reader truly understand what you're saying. Good work!

Jonah, I love the conversation you're wanting to have. Equality is an important issue to discuss for all people. Your book sounds interesting, and I'd love to know more about it! Are there any other books that you know of that are similar to the one you decided to tie...

Prerna, I love your thoughts on this subject. It's nice to see how much literature was able to teach you about a certain topic. Your tie-in to democratic values at the end was a nice touch. Are there any other books you could find that talk more about this topic?...

Jasmine, I love your work on this! You tied your book to your ideas very well. I love the usage of sources to back up your claims. I'd love to see what you have to say about other issues in America that concern inequality. Good job!

Lillian, I agree with you that these values are important to us as Americans. Your usage of American documents to explore your ideas was a smart move and helps us all understand things more. I also like that you used quotations. You claim that the equality promised by the Declaration...

Sante, I really liked how you discussed the irony of the anti-vax movement. A lot of parents who don't want to vaccinate their children are exposing their kids and others to harmful illnesses. You could include a link to a piece by someone who is anti-vax, just so we can...

Please wait...
