    This was a really nice piece of writing. I liked how you used examples throughout your writing that helped to carry your telling of this story. I think paragraph four is really impactful and I believe that you’re making a really important statement here. Below is a source that has similar information to your paper that you might find…[Read more]

  • You make some good points throughout your writing. However it would be nice to add in a counter example, showing a different point of view. Adding more examples of how limiting online speech can be viewed negatively would be more affective in creating a strong argument. Below I’ve listed some sources that might be helpful to add information onto…[Read more]

    Hi Erik, I really enjoyed reading this piece of writing. I love expressing my creativity and incorporating it into everything I do. I agree that its one of the more important traits one can have because it can be applied in multiple areas throughout one’s life.

    I love this piece of writing. It’s simplistic yet tells a story.

  • I really liked the quote you used when you said “‘In 1965, illegal abortions made up one-sixth of all pregnancy- and childbirth-related deaths.'” I thought this was very impactful and brought things into perspective.

  • By reading these articles I learned more about the costs of animal testing. I was aware that testing on animals was wrong, but I didn’t know the serious costs behind it and certain methods that are used when a

    • After reading your response, I want to take a different mindset into the products I use and if they have an impact on animal testing or not. I was mostly unknowing of the fact that animal testing is also harmful to humans, but your response helped me think deeper into animal testing.

    • You have a very good point in that animals and humans don’t always react the same way to chemicals and other things that are tested. I’d be interested to hear about any specific occurrences of this happening.

    • I truly enjoyed this post and it makes me want to change the way we live and the way we treat animals. I totally agree with you when you say “I will do my best in using products that don’t involve the torturing of animals.” And I also found this amazing website that makes people aware of the problems like you do here…

      Thank you Raine!

  • Your shadow box is beautiful and I love the meaning behind it. I relate to how you mentioned you may appear shy when first meeting someone knew and then open up once they get to know you. Overall, you did an amazing job both with the box itself and the description portion.

  • I loved how you expressed your story and shared your point of view. This is challenging topic to speak about, and you presented it in a really well done way.

  • I like how you had a formal tone throughout the paper and stated your opinion very nicely and did a good job overall!

    I really enjoyed your discussion of this topic. You made many convincing points. You also present many sides of the situation

  • Testing on animals has helped in previous scientific research. There is also no alternative for testing on an organism. Using animals is an alternative to testing on human subjects, because that would be

    • Paragraph 2 sentence 2, “sense” should be “since” 🙂

    • I agree with your point that animal testing is wrong. Brands do not have to test on animals to see if their product is effective or not.

    • What are your thoughts on animal testing when it comes to finding cures for life-threatening diseases? Is this just as unnecessary, or is it justifiable?

    • Estimado Raine:

      Estoy asombrada por tu poema ¨”Las pruebas con animales,¨ por que me parece muy interesante, ya que de alguna maneras compartimos el mismo interés así los animales.

      Una frase que destaca para mi es, ¨La experimentación con animales hace que los animales sometidos a estas pruebas para sentir el dolor físico, así como la angustia emocional,¨ porque esta es una realidad de lo que está pasando con los animales. Y leyendo este tipo de escritura podemos tomar un poco mas de conciencia sobre este tema.

      Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribas a continuación, porque quiero aprender mas sobre animales.

      Estoy asombrada por su artículo ”las pruebas en animales ”porque yo también estoy de acuerdo en que las pruebas en los animales también sufren al igual que nosotros y pueden hacer estas pruebas con otras alternativas.
      Una frase que usted escribió la cual me gusto es ” no creo que los animales deben tener que someterse al sufrimiento para que la gente tenga un producto” porque usted tiene la razón.
      Gracias por tu escritura .Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación , por que quiero aprender más sobre las pruebas en los animales.

    • You did a very good job at describing the negative effects of animal testing but I was curious as to which animals this applies to. Are ants ok to test on?

    • Estimado Raine:

      Estoy muy asombrada por tu poema, “Pruebas en animales” porque que un animal no es para hacer una prueba si no al contrario es para darle cariño y amor.

      Una frase que se destaca para mi es “Que las pruebas para animales son innecesarias”. Creo que esto es algo que enverdad se aprecia, porque un animal no tiene que ser sometido a una prueba para los productos del ser humano. Un animal tambien sufre físicamente y emocionalmente, pues es un ser vivo.

      por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes continuación, porque en realidad es muy interesante este tema, me gustaría saber más .

    • I like how you have both sides of the argument as well as providing links to your direct sources. Though you explained some of its effects on the animals maybe add specific examples of what products test on which animals.
