Long Walk to Water Book

We have just finished the book, "Long Walk to Water". I thought the book was really good. The ending was shocking. I still wish the book would have gone on longer, so there would be more to read. Overall, the book was very good to read and enjoy.

I still couldn't believe that Salva met Nya and that Salva's father is still alive. I still don't understand why the Dinka and Nuer tribes continue to fight each other. One surprising part was when Salva was the one building the wells for the village.

The theme of this novel was to take life one step at a time. This theme works because Salva had to figure out all of his problems, but not all at once.

Argument Hooks

I am writing an argument in Mr. Croy's class and my topic is that television can make people violent and lazy.

I am going to wrote a couple different hooks. Let me know what one you like best.

1:  Ancedote- My cousin would always sit on the couch and watch television all the time. When she would want something, she would call to someone so they would have to get it and not herself.

2:  A Surprising Fact- 60% of all television shows are violent, 68% of video games and 90% of movies are violent too.

3:  A Rhetorical Question- Would you be one of those people who gets lazy from television?

4:  Quote- " Life doesn't imitate art, it imitates bad television. "
                              - Woody Allen -

Argument

For my argument I am going to write about television making people crazy.

I will have to research on how long it can take for people to show some difference in behavior. If they sit and watch it too long, they can become crazy.

I am going to write about this topic because the more people know about what television can do to you, the less they will want to watch it.

Hello World!

My name is Macie and I am a seventh grade student. I have never blogged before, but it looks interesting.
In my ELA class with Mr. Croy we are setting up blog accounts and making blogs to write about.
I like to use technology and I hope I can catch on how to use this blogger account.
