Why You Should Include

I think you should include because its more fun, you can have more friends, and you can have more conversations.

The first reason is you can have more fun. Because when I got left out of a game I was sad and I know you would be too because its not fun, so be inclusive.

Reason two, you can have more friends.If you see someone out of the conversation go to them and talk to them and talk with them and you might just make another friend.

Another reason is you can have more conversations. And when you have more conversations people will get to know you. For example what if I went up to some one who doesn’t talk a lot and you start a conversation. Also, if people get to know you can have more fun.

In conclusion try being a friend and not being exclusive.

Our Interview of Mr. Chambers Sr: A local Civil Rights Leader

Today we met Marvin Chambers. He was a local Civil Rights leader, working to change segregation in our town.  He is also the grandfather of one of our classmates. We learned that he helped start ASCORE, which stands for Avl Student Congress of Racial Equality.  ASCORE changed the segregation of our town.

Students remembered  these comments from his visit:

We learned that black schools always got hand-me-down books.

We learned that they couldn’t go out on the street by themselves, if they were a black.

5% of the people made the other 95% suffer.
