  • Johnny, I find it very interesting that your writing about behavioral addiction because you never read about this type of addiction. It’s interesting that genetics play a role in the formation of this addiction. I can’t wait to see what you include in your essay about addiction.

  • Hailey, I really enjoyed reading about your articles. I can’t wait to see what your final essay looks like. I have never read anything that talks about these topics, so this is all new information to me. I find it really interesting that athletes think that their peers look at them as not as smart as others. Hopefully, we can change this mentality.

  • Loreanny, I really enjoyed reading your interpretation of the book “To Kill a Mockingbird”. I think you had a very good analysis of the plot, and I highly agree with all the points you made. I also just watched a movie about racism called “Selma”. However, this movie touches on the voting rights act whereas your book touches more on slavery. If…Read More

    • Yulisa, I think your post is very informative. I think the issue of tenure is one that is really interesting, and that there’s a belief it’s given way to easily and without reason, and just encourages mediocre teacher. I personally agree with these views, and there are a lot of articles that you might find interesting. Here’s a pro-con article that could get you started.

    • This is a wonderful post with many great points. Additionally, have you considered taking on the role of teachers and the system as a whole compared to those of other countries? What kind of classroom style works the best? Here’s an article that might help you with some insight on this subject: https://degree.astate.edu/articles/k-12-education/us-compare-in-global-education.aspx

    • Yulisa, this is a very interesting and important topic. I think your comment that there is a collection of small issues that contribute to larger institutional issues is extremely accurate. American education has a lot of room for growth and I think commentary on it, such as this, is crucial to spreading awareness on the issues.

    • Yulisa,
      I think this is a very interesting topic that has so much information behind it. I agree that students study to pass rather than to learn. I’m interested to see what other information you find.

    • Yulisa, I think this is a very important topic that there needs to be more discussion about. You should expand on how the grading system encourages cheating and stress. I am excited to see how your paper turns out.

    • This is a very interesting topic Yulisa. I think it’s very important to recognize disadvantaged populations and accommodate for that.

    • Very interesting take on this article. This is a topic that is very interesting, as well as relevant in today’s society. This issue is something that we need to take into account when thinking about education, as it is important to give everyone the same access to educational resources, allowing them to better themselves.
