    Hope: the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best
    The Book of Unknown Americans, a novel written by Cristina Henriquez, is a story about people who face realistic

  • The theme of my topic is hope. All of the characters in the book have hope had hope, or lose hope throughout the story. I still need to keep reading to see how Maribel fits with this theme whether she had hope before the accident, if she shows any feelings of hope during her recovery, or if she gains hope later in the story. This theme interests…[Read more]

  • I drew a picture of the house with Cinder blocks and a comparison of the house Alma had expected before she arrived. she expected a red brick house with white shutters and flowers in the background. I liked this scene because it made me feel like she got her hopes up when she saw something lower than her expectations.

  • My essay was very informative and empathetic. The solution hasn’t been thought of by anyone who has written about the problem of my topic. These qualities are strengths in my essay because they cause the readers to feel for the gays who don’t have a choice but to stay in the clinics. The solution counteracts the arguments that support the clinics…[Read more]

    “My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don’t make that mistake yourself. Life is to

    • My essay was very informative and empathetic. The solution hasn’t been thought of by anyone who has written about the problem of my topic. These qualities are strengths in my essay because they cause the readers to feel for the gays who don’t have a choice but to stay in the clinics. The solution counteracts the arguments that support the clinics with religion. My solution isn’t to just ban the clinics because obviously that is too difficult and people are already trying to do that.

      My weaknesses are my lack of evidence to back up my solution because I could only find scholarly articles that were about crimes being reported in general rather than criminals being caught on camera specifically. neither one support my claim that cameras being supervised by law enforcement would prevent the therapists from abusing clients. However, I did think of a way to make it possible for the clients to report abuse in the clinics. I had a weak message in my conclusion.

  • My audience is anyone who isn’t aware about the situation.
    My audience values the safety and well being of LGBT.
    My reasons are in line with those values.
    Changes to make to revise my solution: state why clinics shouldn’t be banned but they should be under surveillance and staying at the clinics should be optional. abuse and trauma should b…[Read more]

  • Problem: Gays being abused as a way to change their sexuality by people who aren’t legalized to do so. It’s almost impossible to remove clinics.
    Topic: Conversion therapy in clinics
    Research question: How are gays treated in clinics? Is the treatment and programs abuse or helpful therapy?
    Audience:people who aren’t aware of the clinics.…[Read more]

  • To change my outlook about something, I would need to hear reasoning from someone who is knowledgeable about the subject and isn’t bias. Proof would be helpful but evidence isn’t enough to convince me to change my mind. I wouldn’t respect someone’s argument if it’s only a one-sided opinion.

  • Reflection:
    1. I did really well with vocabulary. I didn’t have any “very”s or “really”s. I did really well with including a message with my literacy. There was a lot more to learn than just using watercolors and I included that in my essay.
    2. I struggled with including detail and trying to find empty patches that lacked detail. I tried to…[Read more]

  •  As a freshman in high school, I took an art class that involved painting and drawing with different types of media, such as charcoal, graphite, acrylic paint, and watercolor paint. At the time, art wasn’t m

    • Reflection:
      1. I did really well with vocabulary. I didn’t have any “very”s or “really”s. I did really well with including a message with my literacy. There was a lot more to learn than just using watercolors and I included that in my essay.
      2. I struggled with including detail and trying to find empty patches that lacked detail. I tried to fill in those patches by adding more imagery.
      3. I think I deserve an A or B on my essay because it was hard to remember what it was like to to not write an argumentative essay. I followed through with my thesis and added more points. I also described how I was wrong and I misunderstood, which also gave another message and lesson. Maybe I don’t deserve an A or B but my essay does! If not, I would like to know why so that I can improve for my next narrative.

  • The point and lesson of my narrative is to describe the process of learning how to use watercolor paint. It’s more than just a story about how i learned how to paint with this kind of media. The message to my readers is that it takes more than one try to get satisfying results and sometimes advice from someone more experienced is also necessary.…[Read more]

  • changes i’m going to make: add more detail to create more imagery.
