Long Walk To Water

We have just finished Long Walk to Water , and I think that the book was very educational and well written.  The book showed two very different stories,but still had one central idea. The central idea or theme of Long Walk To Water is appreciate what you have before its gone. Salva didn't appreciate his family until the war came through and he thought they were dead.

Argument Hooks

My name is Emma and my teacher has asked us to write an argumentative essay and create hooks. My topic is art programs in schools shouldn't be cut.

Hook 1:Short Story(anecdote)
Imagine you arrive at school ready to go to your favorite arts class.  You have been waiting to go to that class all day , but when you get there the director of the program tells you it has been cut. You are devastated. That is how some kids feel when their favorite classes get cut. 

Hook 2: A Rhetorical Question 
Arts programs are special to students , and they are cutting them. Is that really what we want for our children?

Hook 3:Surprising Fact 
Did you know that more than 80% of all schools in the USA have been cut drastically since 2008?

Hook 4:Quote
"Art has a role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of more like everyone else." -Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

Hello World

Hi I am Emma. I am a middle school student. 

My teacher has asked us to create a blog for school work. 

I think that's a good idea for us for when we write essays.
