Last 8th Grade English Essay

RonPaulCurriculum 8th Grade English Essay

So this is my last English essay for this grade, but I will be continuing posting for the next grade, 9th Grade.

So the topic is, “Why Posting My Essays on My Own Blog Site Every Week Will Benefit Me in the Long Run”. So two of my school subjects I take, history and English, recommends for everyone to post their essays on their blog. And the essays are usually weekly, so that’s almost 52 essays a year, and this is for one subject. And because I take two courses that recommend posting, that’s about 104 essays a year.

Well, there are many ways why posting essays on your blog weekly are good for you. First, for me, it helps me write well. By writing weekly/and or daily(if you’re really into it) it makes it easier to write papers/essays. My ideas “flow” out quicker, and I write my essays quicker, depending on the subject. Also when you post essays on your blog, you can get feedback from other people, and this also improves your writing little by little.

And because I’m homeschooled, posting my work on a blog, proves that I am doing my schoolwork. And also makes it easier for my parents/family to check on my schoolwork. And you can see how much you’ve progressed in so many years.

Posting essays on blogs can also be helpful in job interviews if they ask like what you’re good at or one of your hobbies. But it depends on what job you’re trying out for.

Colleges will also want to know why they should accept you in their university. And having a blog with lots of well-written essays will be rewarding in these situations. It shows that you write well, and comparing to public schools, I doubt they even keep their essays.

Another thing, writing weekly/and or daily, is always good practice. Writing is gonna be a useful skill when you’re an adult, or at least, that’s what my dad always says. But it’s a skill to keep up.

The advantage of writing in a blog instead of writing it on paper is the opportunity to share it with other people who are not your family. Because the internet has become handier and easy to use, a lot of people use it. And when people find your blog, they’ll get interested sometimes, and they’ll like, comment, share, etc.

And when you follow, like, comment other people’s work, they’ll get interested in yours, and you get more traffic that way. And more traffic means more people are reading and commenting and you can meet new people, and or get better in writing, because of feedback.

In conclusion, posting your schoolwork on your blog can help you write better. And sometimes get you in this university that you’ve been dying to go. You could just do it for fun, cause you enjoy it, or you’re doing it cause your parents are telling you to. Whatever the reason is, it’s a good thing.

I hope you liked this final essay, I will be continuing posting other essays, for my other grades. Please comment if they’re any mistakes

In His Steps pt. 3

RonPaulCurriculum 8th Grade English Essay

So I finished the book In His Steps by Charles Sheldon. If you read my two other parts about this book here(1st part) and here(2nd part), then you should know what’s it about. If not then you should know, this book is about the town’s reverend, Reverend Maxwell, challenged his people to ask themselves “What Would Jesus Do?”, WWJD, before they make a decision.

So today’s topic for English is “How should church members have tried to find out what Jesus would have done in their situations?” Well, this is pretty tricky, cause, first of all, people have never met Jesus, so they don’t know him very well, but they do know him from books and other prophecies.

But they don’t know what he would actually do if he were in their situation. So I think this question WWJD is not worth following, cause whatever decision they make, they believe Jesus would do the same, but how do they know, they don’t. But they could’ve actually learned and understand Jesus from the Bible and other books if they really wanted to know WWJD.

So in conclusion, I wouldn’t follow the question, cause I’d just feel like I’d be wasting my time. But if people really wanted to know, they could’ve learn and read thoroughly all the books with Jesus, and learn what he would’ve done in a similar situation.

This is a short “essay”, this is my second to last English essay for this grade. I will post for the next grade, 9th Grade.

In His Steps Pt. 2

RonPaulCurriculum 8th Grade English Essay

This is “part 2” essay of the book In His Steps by Charles Sheldon, as I said in my previous essay. The newspaper company was almost bankrupt, because of the editor, Norman, decides not to publish content that was inappropriate. So they went bankrupt and was bailed out by Virginia. A woman from a rich family and friend of Rachel(the girl who sings for the church).

Now Virginia decides to something good and gives this failing newspaper company $500,000 to help them start back up again. Now for English, my assignment is to tell you, what should Virginia have done before giving Norman, the newspaper editor, $500,000.

Well, first of all, before she even hands in the money, she should’ve check and see if her family needed the money instead of giving it to someone else. If her family did need the money, and they didn’t have it, then they’re in some trouble.

Then after she checked with her family, she could’ve see what she’s investing in. I mean, the whole reason why the paper failed is that they didn’t publish interesting/important things that the town people wanted to read. And if you give money when you don’t know what they’re going to do with it, then that’s a bad idea.

In the book, after Virginia bailed out the company, Norman had a new idea. Instead of depending on subscriptions, like most newspaper companies, it’ll be based on donations. Now, I’m no businessman, but when you don’t have many subscribers, how would get donations. I mean, random people won’t just donate to a company they don’t know or like. And this newspaper was just bailed out, which means they didn’t have much or no subscribers at all.

Now, in conclusion, Virginia should’ve first check with her family, just incase they needed the money, then look into what she’s putting her money in. If I were her, I would want to know where my money’s going. And/or she could’ve just invested in something more useful, instead of a failing newspaper, but that’s her decision.

Overall, I hoped you liked this essay. Please comment if any mistakes.

In His Steps

RonPaulCurriculum 8th Grade English Essay

So far, I’ve been reading a novel by Charles Sheldon, “In His Steps”. The book encourages the idea of the Social Gospel. Whoever takes part of this “Social Gospel” believes it is their duty to get rid of all the evil in the world like, poverty, inequality, crime, child labor, etc.

The book takes place in a town called Raymond, the Reverend, Henry Maxwell, is part of the Social Gospel. He challenges his people to ask themselves “What Would Jesus Do?” before they make decisions or take any actions.

When people started doing that, it just led them to make horrible decisions. Now my topic for English is, “Which aspect of the plot so far sounds most implausible?”

One example is one of the characters, Rachel Winslow. Rachel sings for the church and everybody loves her voice, and she is a very beautiful woman. Then a guy came up to her asking if she’d liked to go to a better job, who pays more. This, of course, is a once in a lifetime chance for her.

But when she asked herself, “What Would Jesus Do?”, she eventually turns down the offer because she felt guilty. She felt guilty of using her looks and her gift of singing and thought that Jesus wouldn’t take the advantage of his looks and ability to gain popularity.

This is very implausible and stupid, why would you turn down an offer of a lifetime. Nobody feels guilty because they’re pretty, and nobody should. Even if you’re rich or poor, you could be shy about it, but not guilty. If I were her, I would take the offer.

Another example is the town’s newspaper editor. When he asks himself “What Would Jesus Do?”, he stops publishing stuff that he thinks Jesus would not agree with. And he also stops publishing Sunday newspapers. And when he does that, his company almost goes bankrupt, because he has no content on his newspaper that people want to read.

This newspaper editor stops publishing popular content on his papers just because, a guy told him to ask himself “What Would Jesus Do?”. And he almost goes bankrupt, I mean how far do you want to go with this question. I mean you could try stop publishing content for a day, but he went too far with it.

In conclusion, I think the question “What Would Jesus Do?” is a very implausible question. It’s done nothing, but make people make bad decisions. The book itself is odd and the decisions that people make is unrealistic. But it’s interesting to read a new type of book every once in awhile.
