My name is Andrea Fonseca, I’m a sophomore at Oakland Unity High School. In my English class we’ve been reading about robots and artificial intelligence and the potential dangers that both might bring. I feel t
This is a great topic to talk about, I liked how you guys connected all the cases and also ICE since most of our community is immigrant. I liked how you guys focused in Oakland and give statistics, also how you guys used pathos and ethos. But sometimes the Police doesn’t have a choice but I get that violence most…[Read more]
I appreciated that you guys share this with us, since it’s a big issue not only in Oakland it’s all over the world. I liked the fact that you guys add logos, pathos and ethos. This is a very interested topic but I feel you guys can add more logos about Oakland like, What’s the percentage of Child Traffic here…[Read more]

This post is so powerful!! You had the courage to share with us the things that you feel and that is really hard because not many people are so strong to talk about this topics since for to many people this kind of topics are a “bad” thing but in reality is not. Thank you for sharing this with us.
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.
