In my school, we have a technology project in which we have to start a petition/movement. My group chose sexual harassment and rape. We chose this topic because it has and always will be an important and ongoing
I appreciate your post on rape culture. It is really informative and inspires me to talk more about this topic. In fact, my teammates and I actually have a blog dedicated to ending rape! Please check it out. https://fight4victims.home.blog/
My animation is about the Greek myth about Calypso and Odysseus. Calypso had saved Odysseus from shipwreck and let him live with her. However, she fell for him and wouldn’t let him go. See what happens
Many people judge me for my music taste. I listen to rock music, and it is understandable why people wouldn’t appreciate my taste in music. They do not like the “screaming”, the “violent” meanings, and the
I really liked your topic as it was really interesting. It showed me how the mental health of average people and incarcerated people are different as incarcerated peoples’ mental health get effected in prison. I look forward to reading more of your posts in hope that they will be as interesting and detailed as this.
I am interested with your post, “Stranger Than Fiction,” because it was a fun and interesting story about a fun camping trip. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We were trying to find out who left the food open and I remembered that I was super hungry in the morning and ate a lot and I guess I didn’t seal it well.”…[Read more]
I am happy with your post, “Music the stress reliever,” because it is true for me too; I also feel calm and relaxed when listening to music. Without music, I feel slightly more stressed about life. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “An article i read talks about music and how it is well for stress and helps slow down…[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.
