    • My vote is with this appeal. It was straight forward. This email describes that you are working hard by spending time rewriting essays. It shows that you care about your work by saying your work won’t be perfect, but you’ll only make new mistakes. You also address that you are responsible by saying that you are lazy and forgetful. This shows…[Read more]

  • Hi guys, here is your newest assignment.

    We all know that environmental science is related to everyone. Human’s activities bring up so many problems like the water pollution, and the soil contaminants to the n […]

    • Hello Ming, great post! I really love the sound of this project. I care about taking care of the environment a lot. This is our only planet and we knowingly destroy it; we’re dooming our grandchildren and great grandchildren to a harsh world because we are selfish beings, it is wrong. I would love to learn more about the reality of what is…[Read more]

    • Hi Ming, Interesting blog! I like the idea of having a debate. This way everyone can present their own research and use each other’s perspectives to either contradict or support the argument. The organization of this assignment is well done. First calculate your ecological footprint, compare with others, and then watch a debate so you are aware…[Read more]

    • I never thought of teaching environmental science at a college writing course until you brought this idea. Indeed, this must be an awesome topic to research on and especially to debate, since there are many causes attributed to the environmental deterioration that we are experiencing. I don’t like Biology and science courses, it has never been my…[Read more]

  • Hi students of English 110,

    Welcome to your newest assignment!

    There are over 2 million fellow American citizens incarcerated at the present time. Our current assignment is a study of the prison system and […]

    • Hi Yehuda, I think your idea is very interesting. You’re right that when we think about people that are in prison we automatically assume that they are criminals. We never think about their families and why they are in prison. Investigating the situation that occurred will let us know the person for who he or she really is. Visiting two prisons in…[Read more]

    • I find your assignment to be very interesting. I like the Idea that you included field work with the project, so it can give people a realistic idea of the situation. Unfortunately, society often stigmatizes people who went to prison and this make their like miserable after being released from prison. It doesn’t matter if they are completely r…[Read more]

    • Wow professor, very interesting assignment. I like the idea, it gets me thinking about a very important topic, on which previously I did not put much thought into. The U.S. has the largest prison population in the world, many of these men and women are in jail for crimes that hold great controversy in terms of the length and severity of the…[Read more]

    • The idea behind the assignment is a very interesting one, of course, I have mixed feeling about it however. At the beginning, when you mentioned that there were 2 million incarcerated at the present time, I actually went to check up on that. Of course that info was from 2013, so the number could have gone up or down by this point. Furthermore I…[Read more]
