10 Additionally, conversing has been simplified through advancement of modern-day technologies. For instance, news can be broadcast on television, within minutes of the event, worldwide. On September 11, 2001, modern technology was vital when the country needed to be alerted about four plane hijackings that took place throughout our nation. All major television networks and radio stations were able to report the story as it happened and give us up-to-the-second information on the situation. This allowed people thousands of miles away from the attacks to take necessary precautions. Telephones also became significant during this crisis as people frantically called loved ones to ensure they were safe. Thus, communication is a fundamental part of modern technology.

11 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary To begin with, having higher security may prevent a school shooting. For instance, in the movie Pay it Forward, a young teenager gets in a fight with a tougher kid when trying to defend his best friend. The tough guy pulls out a knife and takes the beloved life of a 13 year-old. Though this is a movie, incidents happen like this all of the time. One example would be the horrible Colombine shootings. Clearly, these things arent a one time deal, and it could happen to my school, that is why more security could help prevent them.

12 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Additionally, the principal shouldnt allow on-line courses to be implemented at our school because students wont experience as many fun encounters. For example, when I was in fifth grade my class was so mischievous that we drove our substitute teacher daft and had such a hilarious time doing it she never returned. These precious memories could never exist by taking all your classes on- line. In early America, when the Native Americans roamed, children would encounter many activities in their daily life, such as trying to learn to hunt, that could only come from group encounters. Obviously, the moments in life that you will always remember come from being with others, not alone.

13 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Equally important, culture can affect how someone dresses. Recently, I read this book called The First Day of School. It was about a young girl from South Africa named Kufasse Karni. She had just left her small village near Capetown and was on her way to Washington D.C. to live with her Aunt Mabel. Kufassee was to attend a public school in her district. On her first day of school, she went dressed in her traditional clothing. While the rest of her class was dressed in a t-shirt and jeans, Kufassee stood out majorly. Some of her fellow classmates discriminated against her because she wasnt wearing the latest styles. On the other hand, some were fascinated by her colorful dress and her strong accent. As you can see, your heritage does have some influence on the way you dress.

14 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Equally important, people love to watch others humiliated and tortured. As sad as this is, it is only the truth. TV viewers find the embarrassment of others truly entertaining. For instance, as I mentioned earlier, I was watching an episode of Survivor, where their mission was to eat the most larvae in order to receive a special prize. By watching these people getting tortured by the grotesque taste, I get wildly entertained and drawn into the television. The only thing on my mind at this point (besides my uncontrollable laughter) is what crazy challenge they would have to face next. Clearly, TV viewers find the torture and humiliation of people in reality shows pure entertainment. Identify the Example Equally important, people love to watch others humiliated and tortured.

15 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary To begin with, following rules can help keep you safe. For instance, in the movie The Spyderwick Chronicles, a young boy discovers a magical book that holds important secrets to another realm. Despite the clear warning on the book, he opens it anyway. The battle that ensues places his whole family, along with an entire world of magical creatures, in mortal danger. Though he does eventually protect the book and save his family, this could have all been avoided had he only listened to the warning. Evidently, sometimes we have to understand that rules are in place to protect us from harm. Identify the Example To begin with, following rules can help keep you safe.

16 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Initially, the transition from Virginia to Florida allowed me to break out of my shell. I was always the shyest person in the class until I moved! When I enrolled in fifth grade at Manatee Bay, I was overwhelmed by the size of the school. I had never been in a school with 1500 kids. Naturally, I was intimidated and being so shy I had a hard time talking at all. Gradually, I realized if I was going to make any friends, I would have to start talking. Now, in eighth grade, I am very outgoing, and I only shut up when I am in class! Obviously, moving to Florida helped me overcome my shyness.

17 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Furthermore, volunteering should be mandatory for graduation because it is skill building. Some skills gained include cooperation and kindness. A perfect example of this is when my group of NJHS members went to deliver household goods to foster care centers to help the foster teenagers. First, we arranged to have a drive at school. Students donated all types of toiletries appropriate for teenagers. Then, we sorted all of the donations and packed them into boxes. Finally, we took the toiletries to the foster center. Obviously, this service project helped me learn more about cooperation and kindness.

18 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Equally important, knowing a foreign language can be very beneficial in anyones life. One such instance is a story I recall my mothers friend telling her. She was raving about how her daughter, who spoke both English and Spanish, got a job as a receptionist at a fancy hotel. She then went on to boast that she was the only one of the applicants who spoke Spanish, which was the reason why she stood out from the rest. Undeniably, knowing another language can most definitely aid someone later on in life. Identify the Example Equally important, knowing a foreign language can be very beneficial in anyones life.

19 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Equally important, leading a double-life is too exhausting! Most teenagers would argue that it is fun and exciting to be two different people. It could practically double your social calendar, but it would be tiring. Take, for example, Hannah Montana. Sure it is awesome to be a superstar singer, but putting that together with living life as a normal teenager means being super exhausted at the end of every day! Imagine having to get up to go to school, then singing and dancing in a concert for your fans. At the end of the day, there is still homework to do. Obviously, doing this everyday would lead to one tired teenager! Identify the Example Equally important, leading a double-life is too exhausting!

20 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary Furthermore, service hours should be required in order to graduate because it enables students to learn cooperation. One such instance occurred in a novel I recently read. We Are All One by Marcie Dwanye describes how we all live on Earth, and it is everybodys home. Because of this, we all must live together and work to keep the Earth beautiful and healthy. This is why cooperation is so important. Two heads are better than one! Undeniably, service hours must be required in order to instill the importance of cooperation in our generation.

21 Type of example: Personal, Historical, Entertainment, Literary First and foremost, reading is an essential part of everyday life. Teachers always say we will use information for the rest of our lives. Truly, how often will I need to use the Pythagorean Theorem? Not too often after I finish Algebra. Reading is another story. I will have to read every day for the rest of my life. Even if I am a singer, I will need to read lyrics. In fact, it doesnt matter what I do with my life, reading is important! Just the other day I was watching The Peoples Court. The defendant signed a contract she never read, and Judge Milian just looked at her, completely exasperated, and said, Listen, you have to read everything you sign. You made a huge mistake, and now you are going to fix it. Undeniably, reading must be the most important subject we learn in school.
