    The topic I am considering writing about for my Annotated Bibliography is about dance being considered as a sport. I want to write about this because I have been dancing for 17 years and have been active in competitive dance for 12 years. Throughout my life I have always heard people talk about how dance isnít a sport ... more
    3/2 Discussion - Grace Turner, Fri Mar 1, 2013 2:46pm
    I have had an extremely hard time trying to come up with a topic for my annotated bibliography. I have wanted to find a topic that I can incorporate into my issue paper, but that is proving to be really hard as well. At first I was trying to stick to things I was interested in, that didn't necessarily have to... more

  • 2/22 - Grace Turner, Fri Feb 22, 2013 4:28pm
    I found the most challenging thing to be making sure my paper was focused and organized. Because I did such an interesting and widely researched topic, I had a LOT of research to choose from and different subtopics I could cover within the paper. It took a long time for me to be able to decide what I wanted my main... more

    There has always been those people that believe in the most phenomenal obscurities. We put those people in to their own little crazy group. Sometimes without even considering the facts or weighing out the probability. Recently, I have noticed the popularity of zombies take a steep increase. Many movies, TV shows,... more

  • No Subject - Shelby Collins , Fri Feb 1, 2013 4:40pm
    In all honesty, I have never been an English class fan. It is rare for me to ever read for leisure so reading novels and analyzing them to a tee was never appealing to me. Although analyzing the story helps me to better understand what I have just read, I feel like in previous years my teachers would ask questions... more
