  1. hey mr.t i am reading captain america did you know he had a son that lost his arm but then it had got fixed but now he had turned evil and tried to kill his father but he did not kill his father he tried to but his father was captain america and captain america killed him.

    • You wrote one sentence that needed to be divided into 3 or 4.

      “hey mr.t i am reading captain america did you know he had a son that lost his arm but then it had got fixed but now he had turned evil and tried to kill his father but he did not kill his father he tried to but his father was captain america and captain america killed him.”

      Write it like this: Hey Mr. T. I am reading Captain America. Did you know he had a son that lost his arm? It had got fixed, but now he had turned evil. He tried to kill his father, but did not. He tried to, but his father was Captain America, and Captain America killed him.

      That’s 4 sentences and much easier to understand.

  2. hey mr.tarver im reading a book about Olives Ocean. The part that im on is about the girl dies because she was on her bike and she got hit by a car. 😦 This book reminds me of the reason why my mom says dont go play in the street/or in the middle of the road. It is a good book so far and i really cant wait till i finish it.And what made this book catch my eye was when i looked through it and i looked like poetry

    • Do you like poetry? Have you read any of Maya Angelou’s works? If not, try “A Raisin in the Sun”. I thought it a magnificient piece. I had a connection with this book when I read it. One of my friends in high school was hit by a car while riding his bike, and he too died. He had just received a perfect score on his SAT and was prepared to go to the Naval Academy at Annapolis. Very smart…very tragic.

      • when u said tht connection about your friend it kind of reminds me of boys in the hood in stead he got shot cause he was trying to run away and he just took a test to get in collage and he scored above the test limint….. but he never got to go :(. Oh and yes ilove poetry books bt only the big chapter ones.!

      • I hope you’ve tried to read some poems or stories from Maya Angelou or Nikki Giovanni. Don’t forget to include some from Robert Frost and Walt Whitman. As for Boys in the Hood, that movie was a social commentary of what was going on in many black neighborhoods at that time. Using writing, poems, stories, & songs is a powerful method of sharing what is wrong (or what is right) about your neighborhood or the world you live in. Try it sometime…you might make millions of dollars.

  3. title:captain america. author:edibaker. this book is about a man that has powers and they help him to fight crimanals. i remember seeing a show about a man that is just like captain america and the show is called super human. this happened in the world because a robber in new york had happened and one man beat him up with one hand.

  4. Hey Mr.Tarver im reading another book on the sass collection the book is called heart and salsa by suzanne nelson its almost like the other book swede dreams but this time she travels to Oaxaca,Mexico the main characters name is Citlin Wilcox her hometown is Boston,Massachusetts i read on the book that she wants to get out of boston and that she will do anything to get out her parents got divorece and that her mom is goingout with somebody mexican and that she wants to learn about it more so thats way she wants to go mexico but i still have no questions on this book 🙂

    • Did she want her parents divorced, or to stay together? I’m not clear on that point. Lots of parents split up for a variety of reasons. It’s very hard on the children. What is the guy like who is going out with her mom? Are there any details? How do you think going to Mexico will help her understand & learn more about this guy?
