My animation is a re-creation of one of Aesop’s beloved fables. This fable features four oxen that get into a fight, leave each other, and get killed. They had to make a decision, whether or not to stick together.
I really enjoyed your post because I can relate to exactly what your saying. I have read the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, one of my favorites, so I can see what you’re getting at. I advise anyone even more than he did to go and read this book it is a very good read.
I look forward to reading more of your posts because…[Read more]
I believe group work past grade school is a very unfair thing. Getting paired up with people who don’t care about their grades is dreadful. Especially with strict parents who are really serious with grades, this
Hi, I think is extremely interesting topic to think about because it is very true that group projects no longer become fair when it comes to high school. I also have parents who stress about my grades so I feel you in that group projects should be graded based off of your assigned part instead of you maybe having to complete the whole thing on your own to get the best grade possible.
I completely agree with you, as knowing you personally, I can say that we have both been put in this situation, and writing your article, “Group Work”about, the unfairness is really relatable,because I too have been put in this situation and screwed over. I think this article has some very good ideas that are very worth considering.
I can relate to your post, “Group Work”, because some people in our grade in class do not do anything in group projects. There are people who let the other people do all the work, and they don’t even prepare for the presentation (if giving one).A sentence that I admired was “This will also teach people who don’t do work how to do it.”.I liked this line because if people are graded individually, people will really start to care about what they do. I agree with you because people take credit for work they don’t do. Another reason I agree with your claim is because parents can start to micro-manage your work if they find out you are doing group projects alone. I enjoyed this interesting piece.
I totally agree with your post. Their are those times where you have to do everything and it can be very frustrating. When you have to present your response and its your partners turn to talk they don’t know what to say. Blabber meaningless words only that you realize that your grade is about to drop and everything is about to go terribly.
I am interested with your post, “The Inevitable Consequences of Adoption on the Adoptee’s Unconscious Psyche,” because…
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “It is said that babies are able to recognize the sound of their mothers voice, and her face.” I think this is correct because after so long inside the same body t…[Read more]
I am in agreement with the fact that youths do not have to join gangs, “Gang Violence,” because they should be unique and not have to follow what peers force them to. This will also lead to world corruption by the day.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “In conclusion, youths don’t have to join gangs because of peer…[Read more]
I am satisfied with your post “School Stressed,” because it is good to know that there is someone else out there feeling the same way I am. It gives me some relief and makes me feel more normal. I always blame the amount of homework and studying for me not doing well. Now I realize that I am only one of many who feel this way…[Read more]
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.
