  • Luis,

    You have constructed a very good argument on why schools should limit online speech. However the evidence you cited contradicts your stance on the issue. You cited the Tinker V. Des Moines case in which the students won, “school officials could not censor student speech unless it disrupted the educational process. Because wearing a black…[Read more]

  • Cohabitating in an ever-changing society can be a challenge to all people, some more than others. Within our changing society, we can also be challenged with the idea of new technology to advance our development.

  • Issac,
    Your writing is very interesting and I loved learning more about you. I love how you started your essay with “Who am I?”, it really drew me into your piece. Then you followed with your name and what you like to be called. I wish that you would explain why you like to be called Elisa because that part was very intriguing for me. I also…[Read more]

  • Emilee, I loved your piece on the effects of poverty in our nation. The way that you used the relation of a book you read to current national events makes the topic easier to understand. My favorite part was your last paragraph, when you said “Poverty is a hard thing for all people to understand no matter your social class to how others might be…[Read more]

    Angela, I loved your poem, it was simple, short and made a great point. I liked the use of repetition of “I am” in your poem it made it easy to read. The one thing it was hard to tell was if you were talking about just your mother or your father or your extended family. If you were to revise I would keep this in mind because that will give your…[Read more]

    Kimberli, This is such an interesting piece of prose I had to read it many times to fully piece together the information that you give. I love the repetitiveness of the piece and how detailed you made each line. Although it is a small piece of writing it tells a much bigger story that is quite interesting. My favorite line was when you said “To…[Read more]

  • Yulisa, Thank you for sharing this article with us I think what you wrote was very eloquently put. I loved how you didn’t really base your writing off the political side of this issue like many other writers show. Your main idea shows how the voices of our youth can change the world and I think that is a very impactful thing. I really loved when…[Read more]

    Yulisa, I love the way that you approached this topic and showed the logistics to the argument. Your writing portrays a very neutral aspect on the topic so it makes it easier for the reader to create their own opinion with the information given to them. I liked how you said “However, controversy over this is growing due to increasing…[Read more]

    Great job in this post Madeline. I really liked how you gave background of the topic as well as providing information into what euthanasia and medical marijuana are. I think that if you tried to mix the two topics together it would give the writing a little bit more cohesion for a more even flow. I liked when you said “the right to death is as…[Read more]

  • This is a good introduction of the death penalty that I don’t think most people know. I like how you brought up the significance it has on one particular state. I would like to know what are the other states that have the highest rate of people killed on death row.


    According to BIOTECanada “a vaccine is a substance that is introduced into the body to prevent infection or to control disease due to a certain pathogen, which is a disease-causing organism, such as a virus, ba

    • Ruby, I feel vaccines really help the population and should be taken when possible. If they are helping decrease the diseases or viruses that are not happening maybe they should be mandatory. If it’s linking to other causes of things and it’s not really showing a large number or increase for certain things the vaccinations are defiantly the way to go. It would seem taking the vaccination is doing more good then harm.
