Thoughts on Animal Testing

No you shouldn't treat animals the same because some animals affect our existence and other animals don't. Also they shouldn't be testing various products on animals because that's affecting us in a way we're we won't have meat to eat. Yes it's okay, but on the animals that are causing us trouble (ex: mouse and raccoons) but they shouldn't test on animals that humans eat. I think it's okay to test on mice because it's not affecting us but testing animals like house pets or animals we eat those animals shouldn't be tested that will affect us. Like I said before only test on animals that won't affect us not animals that we eat because than that will affect our food supplie.

Literacy History

By the help of my parents and teachers when I was younger I learned to read and write. I learned my letters when I was in preschool, but I didn't know what they meant. I remember my mom reading to me in English and my grandma in Spanish. My first book I read all by myself was "If you give a mouse a cookie" by Laura Joffe Numeroff. My favorite book at the time was David Goes to School. After learning my letters and learning to read I felt good I felt smarter. Then I keep getting older and from the few words I learned in kindergarden is nothing to what I can read and write now.

Nightjohn Illiterate

If I were to be illiterate, things wouldn't be the same for me obviously. Most likely I wouldn't be owning a iPhone 6 right now, I would have a flip phone. There would be no reason in having a smartphone if I wouldn't know how to text people or maybe even call. If I were to be illiterate I would be stuck at home right now without friends. I never like coming to school but if I were not able to what about when I would go to the store a I was looking for something and when I have to pay. And when I get older how would it be when I drive, how would i read the signs.

Paper Reflection .

While doing my research paper I had trouble writing the conclusion and my final thought. I also had trouble finding a way to write the hook, to get people interested in reading my paper. Reading my paper I feel like I could of put more detail. But finding facts on my topic was easy, putting the facts into my own words was also easy. My goal for my next writing assignment will have to be.. put more thought into my writing think of ways to get the reader interested in my writing.

Paraphrasing

Title: "No" article Miley Cyrus

Paragraph 1

Step 1: Notes :
1. Goal isn't to sell records
2. Fans rooms filled with Miley
3. Fans copy her style (fashion)

Fans buying records isn't Miley's plan. Fans bedroom are covered with Miley poster. And because the fans obsession with her they also dress like Miley.




Paragraph 2

Step 1: Notes

Faced problems
Now an adult entertainer

Step 2: Paraphrase Paragraph

Miley is well remembered as Hannah Montana. But as "Hannah Montana" got older she didn't want to be forgotten like other teen celebrities. So "Hannah" just became Miley Cyrus the adult entertainer.
