I- Internal Connection: While reading/learning about" The Crucible" I felt like the witchcraft rumor only started because of Abigail.

D- Decision: A personal Decision that I will make based on my reading and understanding of "The Crucible" is that Arthur Miller should have made a video instead of having others read out the whole entire play.
I am doing good in reaching my goal of trying to be more social and trying not to pass out during a presentation when I am up in front of the class. I try to read more while I am going home in the car or before I go to sleep. In my opinion I am doing terrible because of my anxiety. My strengths is just talking within my table and not outside of it , and my weakness is not being able to present in front of the class due to my anxiety. I think it may be strong and very beautiful. What's challenging for me, is presenting in front of the class. What's easy is doing GROUP presentations. Get ready to present without getting nervous and see Ms. Park if I may have an Anxiety attack before a solo presentation, because I want to get rid of my anxiety.

Junk Food Essay:
Junk food has been a problem in schools over the past 15 to 20 years and is a big reason why many kids are obese. That is the reason man schools are starting to ban junk food and making state/school laws regarding the issue. People believe the junk food in schools is the main reason why kids are obese but junk food is not the only factor why there is a percentage of a high risk obesity. There are other factors that are not considered to keeping junk such as calorie limits, exercise, and people incomes and is the reason why junk food should be kept in schools. One reason is that obesity has been a problem for many years now but banning junk food won't solve the problem, it is also exercising and the parents decision on whether or not to keep their kids active. Some kids are different from others due to junk food consumption that does not explain about their weight. As stated in source D, the author illustrates this point when she states, “ For 95 percent of Americans who do not fall into extreme weight category, junk food consumption does vary” That means that junk food consumption does not really explain the differences in their weight.” This demonstrates that if someone consumes junk food, it does not explain about their weight. There are also ranges of ages that are mostly obese. For example, in source E, it claims, “ Nearly 17 million U.S. children ages 2 to 19 are obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).” This could mean that most kids do not eat healthy or do exercise because of their parents choices. Furthermore, exercise could be a problem for kids who are obese and other reasons like calorie limits and low income. Along with parents decisions on whether or not to keep their children exercising or not to the amount of calories a school serves as a snack.School snacks have to fall under a category to be considered an able to sell snack. According to Roberta Alexander and Nina Lincoffin “Battle intensifies to keep junk food out of school lunch rooms” it states that “ To qualify as a snack or a side dish, the food must contain 200 calories or less; the limit for entrees is 350 calories” This being that calories will be put off in physical ed, even if you don't do well you still exercise. To go along with the calories topic as states by Roberta Alexander and Nina Lincoffin “Battle intensifies to keep junk food out of school lunch rooms” , “there are low-calorie, low-caffeine options, and beverage choices largely consist of water, low- fat or nonfat milk, and 100 percent fruit and vegetable juices.” as it is stated to be low calories at schools so there is not much fat going into one’s system. As this being one of the leading reasons for junk food to not be banned incomes also contribute to this matter. Another leading factor as to why junk food shouldn’t be banned, besides exercise and calories and limits in low income. Low income is a big contributing factor to obesity. Actually kids whose parents have a lower income tend to be more obese. The article “Battle Intensifies to Keep Junk Food Out of School Lunchroom” backs this up saying “Fifth-graders were most likely to be overweight or obese if they attended a school in a low-income neighborhood. They were least to be overweight if they lived in a wealthy neighborhood” we can assume that kids in poor neighborhood wouldn’t just be buying snacks. The richer neighborhood parents can buy more expensive healthy foods, the source “Battle Intensifies to Keep Junk Food Out of School Lunchroom” by Roberta Alexander and Nina Lincoff, Elizabeth Velten a Public Health Advocate proclaims “Their parents also lack nutrition knowledge and face steep prices for healthful fare she said” it’s not just at school but also at home. Parents should also be blamed junk food at schools would do little to no difference in the obesity of children. Around the world 1 of 3 kids are equal to 25,000,000 other kids who are either overweight or obese. This is one of many reasons why children are bullied, teased, or rejected daily about their size and weight. This isn’t why junk food should be banned from schools, the real reason is mainly because of the parents choice for children to exercise, or it could be the calories limits and even their income. This topic can relate to ethics, big idea, and unanswered questions because it is to be based on how parents make / don’t make kids exercise, their calorie watch / equal portions and limits and how much money parents waste on their kids junk food.
