To begin , the novel “Uglies” connects to 2017 because in the book their is a group of pretties and uglies , all the uglies try to fit in with the pretties , and now in 2017 people try everything to fit in with
I was really moved by your post, especially your analysis of your quote. There was definitely oppression happening in your book and there is 100% still oppression today. It is sad that being “pretty” or “ugly” creates oppression between people. What do you think our society can do about this?
To make your writing stronger it is important to remember a few things: 1) Your spelling of their and there 2) The use of “you” in your writing. Who is you? How can you be more academic and precise? 3) Words like stuff and things— what is it? If you can figure out specifically what you want to say your argument will be clearer.
Thanks for writing and I look forward to reading future posts!
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.
