Writers like Graff are totally engaging, their work is easy to understand. Hidden  Intellectualism is real. My friend Michael is a good example because although he wasn’t the  brightest in school, he was very street smart. I don’t know a lot about being street smart except

from what I see in movies. There are teachers like Graff who impact their student’s lives. It  touches my heart when a teacher cares a lot because they see something in you that you don’t see in yourself. Everyone is unique and different. Although some kids may come from different  backgrounds, they all have some kind of hidden intellectualism. Michael always had mini sports’ debates with me. I am a huge soccer fan and a huge fan of the Brazilian team but he is a fan of  the Portuguese team. We would argue about their style of playing and about the fact that Brazil  has won countless world cups. He always carried around a sport magazine with him. Michael’s  intellectualism with sports helped him a lot in school.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
