What grade should we give?
Ever since 1860 students have been given letter grades by their teachers, is it time for students to be able to grade their teachers? The answer is yes. Most school systems decide on how well a teacher is doing by seeing how well the students did on a standardized test. “On most measures, Ms. Campbell and her fellow teachers at the Aspire Lionel Wilson Preparatory Academy were scoring at or above the average for Aspire, a charter system that runs more than a dozen schools in California and Tennessee. But the survey, conducted by a tech start-up called Panorama Education, also indicated that her students did not believe she was connecting with them” (Manjoo). This quote shows that although the students are doing well, they don’t think the teacher is teaching the right way. Most students would need a tutor or spend hours studying to do well on these standardized tests. Part of the problem is that schools spend too much time focusing on standardized tests. Most students in public schools do not have a teacher they can trust and talk to. Finally students usually have no voice on how good a teacher is, and this will give students more of a voice in their future of education.

My parents then challenged my to go one whole week without using technology for reasons other than educational. As a result, my grades significantly increased and I noticed I was able to be more productive in getting my work done. Also, I noticed a change in my relationship with my friends and family. I was forced to communicate face-to-face with them and valued the time I had to talk with them more than when I could just text them instead. Now I almost don’t want to ask for my phone back!
Although digital cameras are not exactly new, along with post production houses that have used digital technology for many years, there has been a big push for all-digital distribution which will eventually lead to the fall of motion picture film production by the end of 2015....
Be personal: Make your essay about you; speak in the first person. Avoid speaking in the editorial “we.” Tell a story from your own life; this is not an opinion piece about social ideals. Write in words and phrases that are comfortable for you to speak. We recommend you read your essay aloud to yourself several times, and each time edit it and simplify it until you find the words, tone, and story that truly echo your belief and the way you speak.
Although we are no longer accepting new essays on our website, we thought we would share these essay writing suggestions in case you wished to write an essay for your own benefit.

Choosing the best underwater digital camera can be difficult, even with an underwater camera guide. The digital revolution opened up a brave new world for underwater photographers. Underwater digital cameras allow us to immediately see the results of our photos, and share them with our friends when we get home. Very few users of film have tried an underwater digital camera and not switched.
For computer literatepeople, the digital camera is much less expensive, more spontaneous,easier to work with and easier to exhibit.
For those of us who have gotten tired of the road (the rut?) thatacademic photography has taken, the black and white overworked imagesof super fine resolution and large format, the digital camera bringsphotography back to life, back into the streets.
