One day our teacher gave us an assignment to start an activist campaign on something that we care about. After much deliberation we still hadn’t chosen a topic. all the topics were either overdone and/or not
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “ If they see that there one of their parents is hitting the other parent the child will grow up believing that hitting their partner is okay to do a…[Read more]
I do have a strong opinion on that as well Dani, thanks for asking :), I believe that Trump didn’t fire him because of the investigation of Hillary’s emails. Trump actually congratulated him for being “Bold” enough to do it. That is why I believe that the reason he fired Comey because he was looking into trumps connections to Russia. Comey…[Read more]
Dear Alba, I am intrigued by your post because It showed that unlike me some people don’t see homework as a useful form of reviewing that days classwork but more as a form of torture that teachers inflict upon students. One thing you said that stands out for me is: But I think homework is actually pointless.” I think this is in…[Read more]
Hillary Clinton was painted as the lesser of two evils throughout the whole 2016 election. People took the opinion that since she was the lesser of two evils they wouldn’t vote for her because she was still
I do have a strong opinion on that as well Dani, thanks for asking :), I believe that Trump didn’t fire him because of the investigation of Hillary’s emails. Trump actually congratulated him for being “Bold” enough to do it. That is why I believe that the reason he fired Comey because he was looking into trumps connections to Russia. Comey basically handed trump the election when he brought up the email “scandal” right before the election so I believe trump is just trying to divert attention from himself and all his wrongs.
dear Grace, Your article surprised me because I had no idea you coul stay healthy without eating meat AND it would lower your stress level. One thing I found interesting was how often people are found to have “a lack of nutrients”. This scares me because lots of healthy options will be pointless with this diet.
Dear Sara, I am confused your article because I have an adopted sister and she isn’t any of the things you listed. She is loving and trusting and if she really had been traumatized by her family in Russia then she wouldn’t go back every year to visit them…
Dear Jessica, I am very intrigued by your article called “How Our Dogs Perceive: Pioneer Database,” because my aunt studies this topic and teaches about it in Barnard collage. you should look up Alexandra Horrowitz she has written books on the topic.
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.
