  • Hey Brendon!
    I really enjoyed your post, It was very interesting and really made me think about American Cultures and Values. You used a great deal of real world examples and tied different arguments together and it fit really well. One opinion I have is that the American Dream is not dead and just merely slowed down. In the beginning of the 20th…Read More

    • Hi Rohan, I completely agree with your piece of writing. You tied your information together with certain parts of your book, and it flows really well together. I can relate to the correlation to realizing things after you read your book and it was very interesting reading your thoughts on different sections of your book.

    • I agree with what you said about empathy, that it is a core value in American society and that it is often overlooked. I like how you included specific examples because it furthers your argument. I think that your main argument and use of specific examples further your writing and allow the reader to understand it better.

    • I really liked that you mentioned that empathy is, in fact, an important American value that is overlooked. Personally, I feel like empathy, along with many other values are often forgotten about. I agree with the fact that you said America is diverse and the unity of our nation helps us to connect. I think this was a really great point to start off on and it set the mood for the rest of your writing especially when you talk about stereotypes and inequality in society.

    • Hi Rohan. I really enjoyed how you mentioned that empathy is easily overlooked in society today. It really shows how America is supposed to be this place of acceptance yet people are very quick to judge something unlike theirs. They don’t express that empathy toward someone or put themselves in their shoes.

    • I like how you point out that empathy is a core American value that can often overlooked. Specifically when you say, “It’s important that we understand what other people are feeling and what kinds of things they’ve been through and that is what America is all about.” Stereotypes are very common, and empathy is a great tool to use to look past them.

    • Hi Rohan, I really like how your introduction paragraph brought the readers into the idea of the importance of empathy. In you introduction you introduce what being an American means. This then brings us into the core values of empathy. You discuss how empathy is needed the American society and will be needed for years to come.

  • First of all, great post! I loved your evidence and ideas. Your argument made me reconsider everything I knew about the electoral college. We were told at a young age to follow everything the government told us to do but I think that this is one of the main things that we should fight to get abolished. I also think that when the electoral college…Read More

    • You talk about illegal immigration and one point in your essay. You make the argument that illegal immigration should not be aloud, but that legal immigration should continue. Do you know why illegal immigration happens in the first place? For starters, most illegal immigrants are not dangerous. In fact they are an important part to agricultural business. Illegal immigrants don’t want to go through the admission process that is required to get into the united states. Instead they enter illegally to work during the appropriate season and then go back to where they were from. Illegal immigration is responsible for much of our hard labor on farms. I am not saying that illegal immigration is good, but is it really as bad as it is made to seem?

  • Dear, Charmaine

    Your article was very unique and it had many aspects that I haven’t thought about before. Born in the United Stats, we take things for granted. For example; Freedom, Equality and the American dream. Americans as a whole can learn a lot from other countries, even though half of the country are past immigrants. I think people need…Read More
