Debates are determined to be popular by Ms. Sangalli's Class's Most Heated algorithm, which considers a number of variables, including the freshness of the debate, the number of arguments and votes, and the diversity of participation.
This is for the Sat. session of Technology Symposium
Our students have had a wide range of access to the internet, databases, and software programs designed specifically for them. However, they do download music, movies, and play games also. The bottom line is, have these laptops increased their academic achievement and intelligence?
You have all had access to laptops and software programs for your high school career. Many students have to go to a computer lab or library to have internet access or even the ability for word processing. Has the use of these laptops increased your intelligence and academic achievement?
Due by midnight Friday, Nov. 13th
Seventeen year olds can watch a rated R movie at the mall, but are not supposed to at school. Should they be allowed? What if they are in a class with underclassmen? If they do watch them at school, what kind of movies should they be? What would parents say and think?
Write at least 70 words and think outside the box... even though you have to type in a box. :)
10 people involved in assault, 10 others watched and offered no help, police say
Richmond, California, police say student was gang raped for over two hours
Former student, 19, and 15-year-old arrested
Victim, 15, remains in the hospital in stable condition
Richmond, California (CNN) -- Investigators say as many as 20 people were involved in or stood and watched the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl outside a California high school homecoming dance Saturday night.
Police posted a $20,000 reward Tuesday for anyone who comes to them with information that helps arrest and convict those involved in what authorities describe as a 2½-hour assault on the Richmond High School campus in suburban San Francisco.
Two teenage suspects have been jailed, but more arrests, as many as 20 total, are expected, according to a police detective.
"We will be making arrests continually as we develop probable cause," said Richmond Police Lt. Mark Gagan. "With this number of people implicated in the incident we're going to be making arrests on an ongoing basis."
As many as 10 people were involved in the assault in a dimly lighted back alley at the school, while another 10 people watched without calling 911 to report it, police said.
A 1999 California law makes it illegal not to report a witnessed crime against a child, but the law applies only to children 14 and under.
"We do not have the ability to arrest people who witnessed the crime and did nothing," Gagan said. "The law can be very rigid. We don't have the authority to make an arrest."
