Hey, my name is Lina and I am a student at the Baccalaureate School for Global Education. My friends and I are planning to create this website informing you about a huge problem in our society, poverty. Our
Aesop was a very famous author known for his short stories that often revealed important morals to the reader. Until now I didn’t realize that often a character’s decision provided the basis for a plot in order to
I am frustrated by your post, “Media to a Muslim,” because it discussed many stenotypes people have about Muslims which are especially popular because of the claim that terrorists are Muslims. You prove this not to be true. You show how Muslims are regular people, just like everyone else.
I am amazed about your post, “Healthcare Hypocrisy,” because you explained deeply how you felt about Republicans and their action. Not only did you clearly state your opinion, you used direct quotes the people said to support your ideas. This made it more and more convincing to the reader.
Social Media is considered to be an essential nowadays. Everybody has some form of it, whether it be Snapchat or Instagram. If you don’t have it already, most likely all of your friends do and you can’t help
I am intrigued about your post, “Social Media,” because many kids and teens use social media to communicate and socialize with people. However, your post bought attention on how social media can also have a huge negative impact on to a teen’s life.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Worst case scenario if they were being very mean and convincing you that you are worthless, one could even end up harming themselves outside of computer screen. ” I think this is a very serious matter because many teens do not realize the impact they have on hating onto someone else. This hate can turn into depression for that other person and cause them to do something dangerous.
Another sentence that I believed is important was: “What you post on the internet is there forever.” This stood out for me because it indicates how you must be aware of whatever you post on social medias.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because shedding light on everyday problems is significant, especially the problems that not everyone realizes.
I am sad about your letter, “No diploma for you!” because it is really said how you worked so hard all those years and you aren’t able to achieve your final goal. All your friends accomplished it, but you didn’t which is depressing. On top of that being an embarrassment to your parents doesn’t help as well.
I am comparable with your post , “Why I Stress,” because I am always stressed on a daily basis about every little thing possible. Most of the time I am stressed about school and how I am going to balance all my extracurricular activities and do well in all of them. If there is nothing to stress about, for some reason, I always fin…[Read more]
I am amazed with your post, ““Did a Day without Immigrants actually have an Impact?”, because it shows how a big part of our country consists of immigrants and that they are essential for our everyday life. I am amazed how there are so many immigrants in our everyday lives, some we may not even notice at first.
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.
