  7. 7. An Exert From “ I Know Why The Caged Bird Sing’s!”<br /> As I'd watched Momma put ruffles on the hem and cute little tucks around the waist, I knew that once I put it on I'd look like a movie star. (It was silk and that made up for the awful color.) I was going to look like one of the sweet little white girls who were everybody's dream of what was right with the world. Hanging softly over the black Singer sewing machine, it looked like magic, and when people saw me wearing it they were going to run up to me and say, "Marguerite [sometimes it was 'dear Marguerite'], forgive us, please, we didn't know who you were," and I would answer generously, "No, you couldn't have known. Of course I forgive you.“ <br /> T his is an example of a book!<br />http://www.usatoday.com/life/books/excerpts/2004-09-22-i-know-why_x.htm<br />3/1/2010<br />Lanuage <br />7<br />I Know Why The Caged Bird Sing’s!<br />

  9. 9. An Article On Smoking And The Harm It Cause’s. <br />Despite the decrease in nicotine and tar content in most cigarettes today compared to yesteryear, researchers believe the increase in bladder cancer cases is likely due to how smokers are smoking cigarettes, where they`re inhaling deeper and more frequently to compensate for the decreased nicotine content. It could also be due to the type of nicotine used. The nicotine in cigarettes today is far more carcinogenic than it was in the 1950s, as it contains more naphthylamine than it did then.<br />http://www.naturalnews.com/027680_smoking_bladder_cancer.html<br />3/1/2010<br />Lanuage <br />9<br />Smoking Is A HUGE NO NO!<br />
  10. 10. Why Is Language Is Important To The Human Race?<br />Language is important to the human race because it allows us to have a special way to communicate that can be learned and used easily. <br />Many culture’s developed a different type of language form their ermines , so that their ermines couldn’t understand their r plans for battle. <br />I personally think that because there are so many different types of languages, that makes the people who know the language special and unique. <br />3/1/2010<br />Lanuage <br />10<br />Language Is Essential <br />
