RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

Ideas on this project (urgent)

This is the assignment.

Quote:The U.S. Constitution reflects our government and impacts us today.
How well does the U.S. Constitution reflect core principles?


5 Preamble Principles: establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general, and ensure the blessings of liberty.

6 Basic Principles: popular sovereignty, limited government, separation of powers, checks and balances, judicial review, and federalism.



1. Find a current event article that interests you and addresses governmental issue. Then decide which principle is addressed by the article and why.

2. Identify an article/section of the Constitution that reflects/addresses that principle found in the current event article.

3. Create a thesis statement that answers the overarching question in the gray above.

3. Write a 4-paragraph essay.

I have a few articles that I am thinking about using. I can only use one essay and I am looking for a good one to use that refers to these principles and what I can type for the essay.

Here are the articles:

It's basically nutjob conspiracy theories and tin foil hat propaganda and fearmongering.

RE: Ideas on this project (urgent)

Just going throuhg my memory of school news I've heard.

Recent story.

That's all I could remember. Then I went googling.
And this came up

I would like to do the last one, but how does this tie into the government? It needs to involve the government.

RE: Ideas on this project (urgent)

Well I'm not sure how to tie the government in with the one i had.

This is a similar article though
http://www.nbcnews.com/news/education/af...ace-n89856

Idk lakeconews.com by the way. That article itself might be fine.

Night did you link Fox?

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

Idk. I think that was a local one. But either way, the Fox news website is actually decent. The tv programs are the most problematic.
