Introducing Group 2

Hello, and welcome to Group 2’s blog. Our group consists of five different people, Ana, Arlene, Jazmin, Jessica, and Raul. Over the next few weeks, we will each individually provide information on five separate areas of Chicago. The specific areas that we will cover are:

  • Albany Park
  • Humboldt Park
  • Logan Square
  • Ukrainian Village
  • West Town (Greek Town, Little Italy)

The purpose of this is not only to give you an idea of the differences of Chicago’s neighborhoods and what resources they have, but also to allow you to see what resources–specifically, tutor and mentor programs– need your help.

Although we, as a group, have individually researched one area this past weekend, after discussing and sharing our findings, we have found some similarities and differences. The northwest side is full of resourses that benifit every individual in the area. Although there are cultural and financial differences, they provide beneficial resourses towards their community.  As our investigation continues on our selected neighborhoods, we will provide you with more hands on information about the tutoring and mentor programs, and their impact on these communities. Hopefully, our north west side stories will be enlightening to you, and the mentioned programs.

Until next time,

Group 2

    This post is a great introduction to your blog. I liked how you said who was in your group and what parts of Chicago you were focusing on. It helps out in the beginning so one knows what they are reading about and what information they are going to learn about what city. At the end of your post, you say that that you guys came up with similarities and differences between all of your cities, and then state that the northwest side is very resourceful and beneficial, but how? You guys can make this better by at least giving one example of how they are, instead of just stating they are. It may impact the reader more and get them more interested. Overall, it was a nice introduction to your blog. Keep up the good work.
