This is our class blog for English 110 at The Ohio State University branch campus in Marion, Ohio.
I had heard of this event before, but before today I didn't really know what all went on during it. I couldn't believe all the problems there were with the law enforcement trying to raid the compound. You both really knew what you were talking about and that made your presentation very clear.
The presentation was really good. It gave a lot of information and had good pictures of the event. I never really knew what occurred during the Waco siege but it really stood out that it lasted about 52 days, which seems like an extremely long time.
So i had no clue about this and you did a great job of informing me because I'm a little freaked out by it lolYou were great at commanding the attention of the class room and you both were very confident great job!!
Very raw facts. VERY interesting to learn about. I never really heard of it before, so hearing something new for a change was nice. I think that the both of you did well not reading directly off the slides, seems like this topic was interesting for the two of you. good job!
It still amazes me how so few people know of Waco and other similar events, like Ruby Ridge. It's kind of shocking how such an influential and shocking part of American history is taught to so little people. I think you both did a very good job presenting the information in an unbiased way and I could tell you put a lot of research into the project.
I am one of those people who didnt know what WACO was untill your group talked about it, both of you presented it greatly and knew a lot about it.
I had no idea what WACO was and at the end of the presentation I had a good understanding of what happened. Great job. You both knew your information very well.
I never heard of this happening but it makes your really think about gun control and many other political positions and raising questions like that show how good your project was.
I didn't know what WACO was either. I think the introduction could have been a little bit stronger, through out the presentation I was wondering what this actual event was. I understand lots of shooting and death, but I didn't understand who these people were and why they were doing it. Both presenters really knew their content, though.
It's a sad thing to state that i never knew of this incident before! It was very interesting and the presentation was very informative. You boys really knew what you were talking about and i could tell that it was a topic of interest to you!
I still can not believe this event happened in the US involving a 'religious' group and the police. After seeing the picture, one would think that this was a terrorist attack or a conflict at some 3rd world country. Good use of images and background info.
I had no idea this even happened before seeing this presentation! You guys did well, but could speak a little more clearly. Anyway, it was very good!
I had heard stories about the Siege at Waco, but I have never heard anything so detailed. The pictures really added a lot to the presentation.
I knew nothing about this topic and you seemed very interested in it which made for an even better presentation, crazy to think that it all went down the way it did and so many injuries and deaths.
