  1. I really like what you’re trying to get at in this outline. Focusing on the small things in life is definitely a topic that has been underappreciated in today’s society and could use some attention. You make some great points throughout your outline that I can’t wait to see be turned into an essay with pictures and sound. What I especially liked about this was your personal experience part. What you did has so much meaning and beauty in it already it ties in perfectly with your claim about valuing the small things in life. You also picked out a peers presentation that just fits in so well with what you’re talking about. You have all the pieces and a great start as to where you’ll take this essay.

  2. I really like that you are including recovery and treatment of addiction. I actually can’t wait to read it because I think it will be a great take, seeing as society gives people the hard shoulder about this topic. I also have a personal connection to this so it will be a good read. I also like the examples that you are going to talk about, the recovery center and sponsors. Liv’s presentation will be a great addition to your paper a well. You picked topics and main ideas that I think you will really be able to dive into and make many points about. Although you didn’t say in this what type of multimedia you will use, I think that you could find some good ideas. One thing that I thought of for a media type, is maybe you could find a song that was about this topic and cut a few parts of it out to put in your paper.

  3. This sounds like it will be a strong paper. I look forward to reading it!
