    I can’t say I always knew who Kenny Rogers was. I knew about that one song that gave out bad poker advice, and vaguely about some kind of island in a stream, but I never grew to love Kenny for many years.

    An Apology to Kenny

  • Erica, your article was cohesive and methodical. It used evidence effectively to demonstrate the problem in question and logically propose new information. It is critical to think about the massive amounts of incarcerated in America and life after prison, and you did a great job of demonstrating that.

  • Hannah, this was a great post. I loved the amount of evidence you used and how methodically you used it to explain your issue. It really helped put things into perspective about the number of people turning to plant-based diets as well as why it is a good idea. It helped to push the issue that climate change isn’t just about fossil fuels, but…Read More

    • Hey Michael,

      I like what you said. You made a lot of good points that we should care for Gods creation. I think you should add direct quotes from the Bible and other religious scriptures where you see this to add more evidence. You should also add an example in which you might see Religion portrayed as an obstacle to change where you do see it as a obstacle to show both sides of the argument.

    Xavier, this article is thoroughly impressive. You used extensive objectivity and factual evidence tied in with your subjective viewpoint of the problem at hand. As a huge NFL fan, I found this article very relatable and enlightening into the future of team moves and relocation. You had extensive sources to back up your thesis, and your inclusion…Read More

  • Jonathan, you did a great job of evaluating and explaining the problem at hand then proposing a solution. The inclusion of previous trials and their success with this strategy really pointed to the potential and viability of this solution to texting and driving. Your train of logic and deduction was coherent and clear. I think your annotations…Read More

  • Jillian, I enjoyed the whole article. I love the extent you took to explain American creed and democratic values. I loved how you illustrated democracy in America today and how it appeals to everyone. I think it is important to remember each individual in the democracy, and you illustrated that well. Thank you for taking the time to write this.

  • Josh, I loved how articulate and substantial your claim was. I liked how you utilized two articles, both clear and concise. It was good to concede some points and acknowledge the validity of other arguments. Your argument was well-grounded and coherent. Thanks for taking the time to compare opposing viewpoints and articulate which is better in your view.
