I love reading about these issues because I know from the publicity it is gaining there are more people who will also take a stand! I think that your post really helped to highlight the specifics like coral that are in danger because of these fossil fuels. I really appreciate that you have chosen to focus on such an important topic, especially one…[Read more]
Dear Madison, I just want to say that this is dedication and you are a very hard worker. Coding is hard and takes time to learn. I enjoyed this though. It is very interesting, I love the details you added. I look forward to seeing what you post next!
I was not suprised that coffee could increase someones performance but at the same time I thought it could mess with the blood flow and make a person tired or jumpy. I knew coffee increased performance because my coaches told me that a couple of people were disqualified from something for having a lot of caffeine in their system. I…[Read more]
I have been in the gym for about the last five years of my life. Going to exercise and to training makes a person different from others that are not in training. I know that many of the kids I have met in the gym
I really enjoyed this article because I never realized all the pros of gymnastics. I never knew that gymnastics can make someone more disciplined.
One sentence that stood out to me was “This gives them a goal and a drive. Afterwards in the real life they have goals set and they know how to fight for that achievement.” This quote stood out because it shows how if you practice gymnastics, you can be more successful in your later life.
Thank you for writing this article.
I agree your thoughts on why people join gangs and how gang fights start. At first your idea that people would join gangs for protection confused me but I realized that being in a gang meant that other people would be scared of the people in the gang because of what people think a stereotypical gang is (scary people with guns that…[Read more]
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.
