The Little Mermaid

             In 1989 Disney was trying to reinvent itself with a new dose of  “classic” films. So this was the first venture into a new age of movies. Well guess what, reinvent themselves they did. This movie was an instant hit to men and woman alike. The film appealed to audiences young and old at the time and was an instant smash at the box office. 

              Once again this story was borrowed by Disney from another source. In this case it was Hans Christian Anderson who first wrote about the little mermaid who want to be human. This was a great kids story and Disney made it a wonderful film. 
The songs in this film are all Disney. Everybody gets a chance to sing in this film even the knife -welding chef. My favorite song is still “Under The Sea”. It fits well into this film and makes it fun. 

             This movie is fun. As I said before it is appealing to and very broad audience. I will treasure it always and watch it again some time in the near future. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                        Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
