    I think that they should not have added the last topic - it is far too close to the overused and abused "How I Overcame Adversity" topic, which likely puts more AOs to sleep than Ambien.

    Also, the way that some of those topic are written could nudge students into telling instead of showing. Every topic which begins with "How did you..." has that potential.
