I agree with David; I now understand why some of the kids and parents behaved the way they did in high school. Peggy's speech helped me to understand the diversity in different social classes. I now have a better understanding of the actions and behaviors of people.

I learned a lot of information from the presentation Peggy gave to us. It helped me to better understand how behaviors vary depending on different social classes. I now realize why some of the kids and their parents behaved the way they did when I was in high school.

I liked the presentation that Peggy Hawse gave today. I acknowledged that human diversity is gaining in family households. Also, languages in human diversity amaze me. I liked when she pointed out that family structures have been changing in a variety of ways. For example, Ruby Payne apparently met a students mother (aka father) whom had had a sex change. The diversity of people have changed over the years. I also liked the voices she talked about on how to talk to other people as to not offend them. These voices include child, parent, and adult voices. For example, we did a activity in class that pointed out how different stories can be told. The story we worked on was Cinderella. I learned the differences of frozen language and casual language. To my surprise I couldn't understand the casual language as I did the frozen language.
