• Hi Micah, this was a very interesting and informative essay. I really liked how you used different sources and personal connections to establish your argument. I also agree that voting is something all Americans should participate in once they reach the age of 18. Being American and identifying what makes someone an American is very complex and…[Read more]

  • Zoe, this was a very insightful essay, and I think the topic is very relevant in today’s world. It is very interesting to hear that doctors caused one of the largest growing problems in America today. I think you’ve listed some very viable solutions. The hard thing will be implementing them and fixing a system that has been broken for a long time.…[Read more]

  • Millennials are known for creating “friends with benefits” and because of this many would assume that they are more promiscuous then previous generations. Shockingly the General Social Survey, a project based at

    • This post was very interesting to me, I had always assumed that our generation was indeed more promiscuous than my parents’. I guess that my parents just leave out all the bad things they did when recounting their childhoods. I wonder what the reason for the discrepancy between the generations is.

  • Dear Rocensky,
    I really like your six word memoir. It is so interesting to hear about different cultures and to see the similarities and differences. Its very inspiring to see your positive outlook on your new life in America. I think your closing statement was wonderful, “no one has the right to punish or condemn someone because he does not like…[Read more]

    Hi Beth,
    I have three siblings and I think all of the points you made in your post are very applicable to my own life. As a middle child I think I can strongly identify with the “stereotypical” characteristics of a middle child. I think the quote “middle children often get the reputation of being left out… however, they benefit from the…[Read more]

  • Hi Makenna,
    I think everyone can relate to your post in some way. I think until people are able to accept us we must learn to accept ourselves. Once we figure out who we are as individuals and gain confidence it becomes easier to meet new people and establish friendships. I think this part in your essay, “you are strong and in the world we live in…[Read more]

  • Sevin, I think you have written a very interesting piece that adequately highlights one of the most heated debates in US politics right now. As Americans we are given the right to protest which is currently being demonstrated by NFL players. What they are fighting for is equality and unity, which is something I think more people should be rallying…[Read more]

  • Sofia, I think your article is highlighting something very interesting that is rarely discussed in the local media. However, while Salt Lake City is becoming generally more liberal, is it changing Utah as a whole? I think while Salt Lake City is changing in demographics and newer generations are straying away from the traditional views of the LDS…[Read more]

  • Having a twin seems like something very beneficial. From the time you’re born you have an ally, someone to support and influence the decisions you make. Yet are all of these preconceived ideas really accurate? H

  • Hi Daniel! This is a really great post and I think it highlights topics that are widely discussed in the media today. I think America was founded on the basis of being just and equal, and I think it’s something most Americans would consider themselves to be. However, I think that total equality is not something that we have yet to achieve and I…[Read more]

  • This was a very eye-opening post Caleigh. I think you discussed a topic that most of society is too scared to address, and I am very impressed with the manner in which you did this. I think you gave a lot of accurate information that was backed up by statistics and resources. However, I wish you would elaborate or explain more on the statistics.…[Read more]

  • Hi Valeria, I think you’ve chosen a very interesting topic for your research paper. In my opinion STEM programs are heavily male oriented and the jobs involving engineering in generally associated with boys. I think you have a strong thesis statement, I would rate it a level 3 almost a level 4 according to the rubric you’ve provided. I think if…[Read more]

  • Hi Darrtell, I think you’ve chosen a very intriguing topic for your research paper that is currently being explored by so many other scientists and environmental activists around the world. I agree that humans are the cause for the increasing amount of trash and environmental decay happening around the world. I think this could be really…[Read more]

  • Hi Josh, I think this post really sheds some positive light on such a negative topic in today’s world. Racism and the discrimination is largely focused on in the media and on the news, especially after Charlottesville and the removal of many Confederate statues throughout the United States. I think your opinions and overall message in your post is…[Read more]
