My story is adapted from the original story The Lion and The Mouse by Aesop. Overall, the story incorporates a mouse going into a lion’s cave, and that lion wanting to eat the mouse. The mouse doesn’t wish to die,
I am inspired by your article, “Equal Pay For Equal Work,” because seeing how women are viewed as inferior to men in such an obvious way makes me want to change how the world views them and give them the equality that they have been wanting for so long.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I learned that women in the…[Read more]
Dear Humaira :
I am proud with your article,“Islamophobia: A 12-year old’s take on it.,” because it explains in a nutshell what many people have been trying to point out, and you wrote it in just the correct way for your message to be heard (in my opinion).
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “It’s astonishing how it is the 21st…[Read more]
I am surprised with your article Don’t Let Peer Pressure Persuade your Opinions and Beliefs,” because of how much I relate to it, as I have witnessed many people crack under peer pressure, much like the way your classmates did.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The one way to move our society in the right di…[Read more]
When gender equality is discussed, the discussions lean towards ideas that will help women be recognized as men’s equals. However, in many other parts of the world, women are seen as inferior to men and are
Hey Lesley, I wrote about gender equality too and I absolutely agree with you about the not-so-equal gender equality that is shown in the U.S. today. As you mentioned, women should definitely stand up for themselves for equality, such as equal pay in the workforce as men.
It seems as though you believe that work inequality is an issue in the U.S. Do you believe politics has anything t do so with this? Or do you believe this is due to the leadership present in our nation today?
I am overjoyed about your post, “Gender Equality,” because it is completely true. It is believed that men and women are equal, but your post shows how in society it still isn’t quite true.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Some women around the world are not allowed to do things that a man can do, such as going to school, having a job, and in some areas being able to show themselves to the world.” I think this is true because there are still third world countries where women are still unable to do what people in the first world country consider to be a right.
Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. When I was younger my parents had always told me things like “only boys do that,” which I think is completely wrong. These things tended to be sports and such.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this was super informative.
I am very surprised and pleased with your post because of its truthfulness and dead accuracy.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ‘Time management will be one of your toughest battles. Time can’t be beaten, but it can be tamed.’ This stands out to because I am really, really bad at managing my time because I can get d…[Read more]
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I agree with most of your requirements to create a good sitcom, and I really do want to know what can really make a sitcom that, for a little while, can take you to a different world and has a deeper meaning and understanding than what meets the eye.
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
