With these sorts of technological advancements, the culture of the vikings ran hand in hand. Their rich culture consists of religion, art, architecture, and much more. The vikings believed in the Norse Gods. Their
Do NFL teams have the most complicated offenses? You should relate the complexity of formations and plays of the highest levels of football to the lowest. Great post though that is very enlightening to those who do not know much about the game!
This is a very uplifting and happy post Emma! I have had many of my family friends receive breast cancer, and it seems that all of them have beaten it. What about other cancers? Is the mortality rate improving for them too? Great post!
Vikings are commonly known as the vicious marauders of the time period from about 750 to 1000 AD. Once they developed their longboats, they were free to travel about the Atlantic Ocean with no interruption from
Good start on your research. I do not know what your research question is, so I don’t know where you are heading. It has been awhile since I have looked into Vikings, I do not have my sources. Something that I have found really interesting is the misconceptions about Vikings and the impact they have had on the Western World. The Viking Mythology is very diverse and unique as well. Vikings were the first to trade with Native Americans. Vikings are very diverse as well, so it might be wise to just focus on one group of vikings. Again I don’t know your research question. Good start. Keep an open mind to see if you find something more interesting about vikings.
Nice research topic. It’s crazy to think about how much our society really relies on coffee. It is a huge source of revenue for farmers of the coffee bean, and the high up execs like those at Starbucks. Interested to see how big of an impact coffee has on the world.
Vikings aren’t necessarily believed to be the most influential group to have roamed this Earth, and were more known for the sagas of their short-lived “empire”. Vikings were known for their brute force, and
I’ve never thought of the viking’s influence on the things you mentioned. It’s very interesting and there is a lot to be said about vikings as a whole. I think you picked an awesome topic to research. Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton is a more realistic version of the story Beowulf. Crichton does a really good job of giving an accurate portrayal of the viking way of life. It may help in your research but if not it’s a good read.
In August, there was a discovery of a planet orbiting the star closest to our sun, Proxima Centauri. The exoplanet Proxima b, was said to even possibly have forms of life living on it. This was a possibility until
Annika, I absolutely loved this post! It is getting me in the Christmas spirit, and makes me realize that it truly is “the most wonderful time of the year”, even if some Scrooges try to ruin it for you…coughTrevorandRyancough
A very well thought out essay, and informative. I agree with many of your points, but I wish that you talked more on the electoral college. I believe that the system is one of inclusion, and fair representation. Instead of all politics being led by the densely populated states such as New York and California, other states have a say, such as the…[Read more]
Great topic! I had no idea that microbeads were found in soaps and what not. This was a very insightful essay and it certainly raised my awareness. Ever heard of the Pacific garbage island? It’s an island of trash larger than Texas that is very harmful to wild life. Well done!
I too was surprised by the results of the election. Regardless of what anyone says, Donald Trump is the next president of the United States, and we should be looking hopeful toward the future. As time progresses, Trump has already made way in selecting his cabinet (earlier than Obama or Bush did), and working on policy proposals. For…[Read more]
I completely agree with this Chris. A person who is going to lead this country must be able to put him or herself into the shoes of the most discriminated against people. Equality has to come into view again. people like Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King Jr. would be disappointed in our ways today. Equality has to be a priority of any leader of…[Read more]
This videos were very moving, and really gets you to appreciate that we have such a great education system in the United States, and that we have so many opportunities. Great use of the video, and thank you for enlightening me on what is going on in Sierre Leone.
I honestly had no idea what the word malaise meant before reading this. This was an interesting and informative way to show the meaning of a word. It kept me interested in your writing, and I was captured by the word. I’m glad I get to add it to my vocabulary!
The United States has 88.8 guns per 100 people, or about 270,000,000 guns, which is the highest total and per capita number in the world. 22% of Americans own one or more guns (ProCon.org). At a certain point, it
As a fellow athlete to possibly play sports in college, I completely agree with you. For athletes to sacrifice their bodies to entertain others I believe they should get some reward. On the other hand, athletes do
I love this Andreas! At what point are we going to stop. You should look into the poaching of endangered species in countries like China. They sell the pelts and what not, and endanger species even further. Do you
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.
