  2. Bethany, your post was nice. You could improve the format because it is disorganized. In order to improve, you may put spaces between the paragraphs so it is not a huge thing of writing. Also, explain what we learned in class and not only what we did.

    Overall, pretty good job, you just need to explain more and fix formatting.
