I had to recently create a website using basic HTML and CSS code to explain my school. I go to BSGE, and this site would help them understand the school as a whole. Using this site, they wouldn’t come into the
I’m not sure if this news has sunk in yet… I’m still in shock that Donald Trump is now the President for the next four years. From all of the predictions and talks, I thought that Clinton would have won by a
I am approving with your post, “I feel _________ now that Donald Trump is President,” because I also agree with you that whatever happened let’s get it over with and simply wait and watch. I don’t agree with everything Trump says, but I hope for the best for this country.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “So, I don’t think that he can ruin America as much as people think he can.” I think this is pleasing because we don’t have to worry about all the crazy things Trump says becoming true.
Another sentence that I loved was: “One of the plus sides is that he isn’t influenced by money (he has enough of that) so maybe all of the cabinet members he chooses will be picked because they are the best fit for the job.” This stood out for me because it is true. Trump’s money will be beneficial to some extent for the country.
I do agree with you that when Trump won Florida, there was big chance of him winning. One reason I say this is Florida, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Wisconsin are important states to win. Another reason I agree with you is the larger states give a lot of votes because of the larger populations.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your opinions are concise. They seem to be well-thought out and supported with facts.
I agree with your post, “I feel _________ now that Donald Trump is President” because I as well don’t know how to feel about Donald Trump being president.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “So, I don’t think that he can ruin America as much as people think he can.” I think this is true because he was a Democrat for so long, so the only reason he says he will do all this is to gain popularity and win more votes.
Another sentence that I agreed with was: “Obviously, the rest of the world sees this man as a un-filtered man who isn’t fit to run America. ” This stood out for me because I was in another country during the summer, and this was stated everywhere.
I do wholeheartedly agree with you that Donald Trump has to pull himself together.One reason I say this is because he is going to lead us, and he can’t in the state he is in now. In addition, he has to because he will make the US look so bad if this is how he represents us.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you are extremely truthful and your posts are very interesting.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
