In addition Johan, when you said :”For decades, the tobacco industry has promoted their products to the mental health community with the idea of tobacco as medicine. “, I really felt what you were trying to convey. I believe that it is evil that tobacco companies would market their products as medicine! I Strongly agree with you entire message! I…[Read more]

Memes are funny jokes that everyone on the internet has at least seen once. Why are memes so appealing? The simple fact of the matter is that most people don’t really know why memes are so awesome. They are just
I liked yours Eduardo because it was descriptive enough to know what a meme is but at the same time it wasn’t like an essay or really long. it stood out to me when you said that memes make no sense often but that’s why they are so funny and random. this stood out to me because it made me stop and think for a moment what just how random and unlimited memes can be. I would agree with you when you say memes can be applied to a lot of situations because its like satire in a way. I agreed with this because you see like newspaper comics sometimes take random topics and make jokes about it and I feel like this is similar because memes can be made about anything
I am delighted about your post, “Are memes awesome? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ¯_(ツ)_/,” because it was very enjoyable to read about your opinions about memes and how I can relate to you.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “They [memes] are just funny, random jokes that the internet came up with one day.” I think this is fascinating because it indicates how our society finds ridiculous stuff, entertaining even though they are impractical.
Another sentence that stood out was: “Often, it is not the randomness of the joke or meme that is super appealing, it is the meanings and uses of that meme.” This stood out for me because it shows how memes are created to be relatable with other people and the society.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because if you wrote about memes, you’ll most likely write about something else just as significant. ;D
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.
