This source is really useful because it explains several reasons why students should not have year round school. The article has opinions from other people of what they think about year round school, a reason the article includes is that it's necessary to have a long break. So you can rest from all the home work, and just focus on having a good time. The opinions make it really convincing.

this source is useful because it make sense, they are trying to convince us that year round school is a good idea.it is like a debate but in a article. the article also says that it is very similar to normal school, because they are the same hours. It makes you more responsable about your work. In addition they might even get their degree faster, because their are learning more quickly than other students. This makes it a convincing artice.

This is a great source to get information from, because it comes from a school website, and has age appropriate language. This is a role model article, because it is an essay, that can give examples of how to do a hook, a conclusion, etc. This website, gives links to other websites, and the author, goes to both positions, and explains each one. There is proper spelling and grammar, and there are strong opinions that make you think about the topic.

What about having students bring devices home for the weekend?  Students could have contact with the teacher on a Saturday via secure school website?

Daniel Zalta's curator insight, May 14, 2014 9:43 AM

This article explains that Students at Wake’s 48 year-round schools will go to school on Saturdays for four half-days. That’s drawing complaints from parents at Wake’s other 122 schools because their children will make up the time with four full days on weekdays that will cut into spring break and extend the end of the school year.
