    Dear, Middle School Teachers and Students:

     

    We are choosing to write to the middle school teachers because from experience we know during these years teenagers struggle the most with sh

  • Thank you for taking the time to comment and reading my blog. I agree with you because the Nazi experiments were very cruel and it shouldn’t be done on people because they had to suffer.

  • I appreciate you commenting and reading my blog. To answer your question you asked me I believe that they didn’t know what they were doing because they just kept the experiments going until it was forced to stop. But what do you think.

  • Dear German,
    I am interested in your writing about how classism and racism affects human experimentation. One part of reading that stood out to me was “This shows racism and classism because they chose a group of black males who were already in poverty and had no real access to medical care. This would make them want to sign up because they w…[Read more]

  • Dear Leslie,
    Hey girl!!!! I am shocked about what your wrote because human experimentation shouldn’t have to happen to people especially to people that just wanted to live their life but couldn’t. One sentence that stood out to me was “They ruined her reproductive system and put her through a lot of pain for their scientific needs. Some peopl…[Read more]

  • Ying commented on the post, Victims of Experiments! 4 months ago

    Dear Kami,
    I am shocked about what you wrote about because many victims was apart of the experiment that the Nazi did. And it’s very sad that the had to go through all that pain because it must have been really painful and brutal. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me was “Of course there is a possibility that from those experiments t…[Read more]

  • To begin, have you ever heard about the Nazi research? Well if not let me tell you a little about it. But the question that I would be talking about is are the data that is from the Nazi medical experiments

    • Dear Ying,
      I am interested in your blog post because the experiments the Nazi did were really cruel and not a lot of people are aware of what they did.Your question really stood out to me because it was really specific.
      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your writing is interesting.
      Sincerely,
      Grady

    • Dear Ying,
      Reading your work, I was overcome with sadness. The Nazi experiments are a hard and saddening topic but it’s pleasing to know that you went into it. I love this topic to be honest. One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “She after got into a hospital and was examined that her uterus has become a 4 year old child and that her ovaries has shrunk.The victims that were tested were all Jewish the people that were testing on them had no respect for the person because they were able to feel the brutal experiments they did to them.”, This quote stood out to me because I can’t believe the Nazi doctors did that, it’s terrible. It also stood out to me because I definitely agree with what you said after about there being no Autonomy. Another sentence that stood out to me was, “He was able to get funding for the experiment. I believe he wasn’t doing any good for anything because he put the twins in desperate pain.”. This quote made me very aggravated because I can’t believe someone would fund for that. I wish there were people then in Germany that could’ve stepped up to this. The the second sentence caught my eye because I agree with you. Yet I do not completely agree with this sentence stating, “Which I believe this wasn’t fair because people should have a saying if they wanted to be in the experiment but they weren’t.”. I do agree that people should have a say if they want to join an experiment or not, but concerning the Nazi experiments, I feel that no one should’ve joined those experiments. The experiments they conducted were so terrible no one should’ve taken part of that. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your work is agreeable. I really appreciate getting a chance to read your work. If you’d like please reply.

    • Dear Ying,

      I was really amazed by your blog about Nazi experimentations on humans. I really liked how you engaged with the audience by asking questions that they could later answer to. I’m shocked what Nazi did to humans because before I didn’t know about this so I was informed after reading your blog. I agree with you that the experiments that the Nazis commited were cruel and unethical. I look forward to see what you write next!

      Sincerely,
      Jennifer

      • Thank you for taking the time to comment and reading my blog. I agree with you because the Nazi experiments were very cruel and it shouldn’t be done on people because they had to suffer.

    • Dear ying,

      Your post topic was very interesting! Even though it was a very tramatic event in our history I found it very interesting read about these experiments that were done. But along with that thought it was very sad to know that they were treated that way in fact a line that stuck out to me the most was, “ He did blood transfusion from one twin to another which he wasn’t trying to minimize harm he was causing more harm for the twins.” That line stood out to me because wow they did that to innocent children to get information about it? I wonder if they knew what they were doing like the harm they were causing? But this was a great post! One of the most interesting I have read anyways, Keep writing very good. Have a good day

      -Leslie

    • Dear Ying,
      I just wanted to say that your article was really outstanding and everything in you article or post was touching. I hope you keep posting more amazing work like this.

  • Dear Saul Martinez,
    Your history of the name was very unique of where it was from and why your proud of your name.

    Thank you for commenting on my post. It’s very cool that you were able to relate to and to see someone’s point of view of what they think about violence.

  • Violence and Crime in the Oakland Community

    By Ying Yang

     

    There is a big problem in Oakland of people committing crimes and how it hasn’t been safe in the community. Well let me tell you, all communities ha

    • Dear Ying,
      I am impressed by your post,¨Violence and Crime in the Oakland Community¨ because my post is also about Oakland and I wanted to know someone else a opinion that lives in Oakland. Plus your semes way better than my opinion.
      One sentence that you wrote that stands out to me is:¨Oakland community needs to be a place that is safe and were all apart of the crimes of what people choose to do because we all want to be in a place where we don’t want to worry about getting killed.¨ I thinks this is great because people should not worry about their safety. Also people want their kids to have a safe place to walk and not get worried about them walking alone.
      Another sentence that I like was:¨How has violence and crimes affected the Oakland community?¨ I like this question because people don’t really ask this question, so bringing it out the shadow is great. Also this question really got me going.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time my phone died and I didnt have any money so I couldn’t call my parents and get bus. Ii was dark and I had to walk about 30 blocks. So went walking at 6:30 and I got home safe but my parents were worrying and I got grounded because of that.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your post got me thinking. Also I like your post because I can tell you really put effort.

I agreed with what you said because the Oakland community can be very dangerous at times. Which this can make people have a hard time feeling safe in the community and I totally understand how you feel when you connected with my blog. We all want to be safe in the community and we all want to feel like we are in a better place and a place where we feel like it’s safe of where we live. Thank you for taking your time to read my blog.

    • Dear Ying: Violence and Crime in the Oakland Community

      I really enjoyed your blog. It explains a lot about Oakland and how the communities are danger to be roaming around. I have a couple questions for your blog, when you say communities do you mean every communities in Oakland or sortan parts of Oakland? Also I support what your ideas and argument. I would like to argue back, since people from San Francisco has moved to Oakland. More peaceful people are coming in the Oakland communities. I feel like there will be less violences in Oakland since gentrification is kicking in Oakland. All the bad people who cause trouble in the communities with have to leave, that means it will be peace. I live in the 60s and there used to be a lot of shooting and thieves, I have experiences my cars getting stolen outside my house and my neighbors house getting broken into. Now days you don’t see that in my neighborhood no more, because there are a bunch of people who walk their dogs in the morning and ride their bike or take jogs around there. People are around my street walking like it was a nice place to walk around, they dont see no danger in my community, because there are new people who are nice to their neighbors and says, Hello or good afternoon, they are nice people coming in bad neighbor turning them into safe places.

      Sincerely, Daniel Gonzalez

        Thank you for commenting. From what I meant for communities I meant for all the parts of the community. So you believe that people from San Francisco are moving to Oakland but where are the people that use to live here and if were saying if those people are “violent”. Aren’t they still going to be violent just because they move doesn’t mean that our community could become safer. Even if people move in to Oakland from San Francisco I believe that it’s still going to be the same because the people that are committing crimes are still here in the Oakland community. So like as a community we have to find a way to stop that violence. But I also agree with you that people that are moving to San Francisco it can help support the community and make it better because they would have seen as like a model for the people in the community. There are many people in this world that makes this community better and not everyone is violent. But thank you for commenting.

    Thx Zoe for taking the time to look at my shadow box and for reading my artist statement. And I hope to go to Paris with my sister and take her on a adventure that she deserves!!! But I love how my butterflies meant something so big when they’re just really small and in the back. But I’m glad you notice that!!!!

    This Shadow Box represents the counter and dominant narrative of me and how people think. All of these objects represent something different and they all have a story behind them. I have

    • Dear Ying,
      I am happy with your essay/statement “I am Who I am” because it was amazing. While reading your artist statement I felt a little excited and of course happy as you know about the information you shared and how big your statement was. One line that stands out to me was,” I wanna show my parents that I’m able to be on an independent woman that is able to do things on her own” because I agree with you. I have this feeling too with my parents. Another sentence that I saw was, “ People might think I don’t live here because of my face and ethnicity”. This sentence stood out to me because after reading this is really makes me think about so much more types of dominant narratives. A part of your essay that reminds me of something in my life was actually when I moved across the country. I was homesick for California and it was very different for me as well. The same went for me as well on the don’t talk to stranger quote but in New Hampshire it was like that disappeared.Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you have to right next, because I see you have interesting stories I’d like to see more of. I also think your stories are really relatable which is something great as a reader.

      Ying, I was attracted to your shadow box because of how artistic and creative it was. When I read why you chose all of those things, I loved it even more. My favorite thing you have is the butterflies. I love the metaphor that you have for that. I am so excited for you to continue your life journey and hopefully it will take you and your sister to Paris!

      • Thx Zoe for taking the time to look at my shadow box and for reading my artist statement. And I hope to go to Paris with my sister and take her on a adventure that she deserves!!!

    • Dear Ying,
      Your statement of “I am who I am ” was interesting because you were detailed about what the objects meant to you. Something that stood out to me was when you wrote ” But instead of my sister taking me there and her paying for the tickets. I always wanted to take her when we’re older”. The reason this stood out to me was because you expressed that you wanted to do something nice/special for you sister and hopefully one day you do. This also relates to me even if I don’t have a sister I want to be able to take my family wherever they want.I loo forward to seeing what you write next, because your stories are very interesting and powerful.
      Sincerely, Grady

    • Dear Ying,

      Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Angel and I am a student at Fremont High School.
      Something I liked about your work was how you showed how motivated you are to do nice things for the people you care about the most.
      Something I have a question about is why do you wanna visit Paris? Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. The address of my student blog is http://angelh2021.edublogs.org/2017/11/09/assignment5-the-shadowbox-project/.

    • Dear Ying,
      I liked how detailed you were with each object that you decided to use in your Shadow Box. A sentence that stood out to me was, “But I have come to a conclusion that any where I live it would always be different.” I agree with this quote because nothing will feel like home, the place that we have lived at for most of our time. I haven’t gone back to where my family is from but I’m pretty sure that I would feel like you. Really weird and left out because everyone would know each other for years and the there will be me, a new girl that came out of nowhere to visit.

      I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.
