One of the biggest issues of the United States is the threat of deportation and determining whether an immigrant came here legally or illegally. What my article is about is the point of view of the immigrants that
I am interested in your post because this is a topic that is close to my heart. I think immigrants are important to our society and our country is built on immigrants.
One thing you said that stood out for me was: “our American creed is to make sure immigrants feel safe in this country” I think this is intelligent because it is the truth about America. We need to take drastic measures to take care of everyone in the country.
Another statement that caught my attention was: “ we, as Americans, help each other, no matter the race or gender, then this country truly is America” I think this is sad because our country is truly becoming divided.
Your essay reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I worked with a woman who was from Mexico and was here illegally. She told me her story and how she would be dead if she stayed in Mexico. This made me realize how lucky I am to be born in America. This also made me realize the importance of immigrants because they want to protect their lives.
Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I think you have really good ideas. You have a voice that needs to be heard!
This is a very interesting article. I love history and science and this article taught me something new. It also made me think of what America would be like without those psychedelic movements and experiments. I love this article.
This is a very interesting argument. You express how much these issues bother you in such great detail. In honesty, I agree with most parts of your argument. I would say that men don’t have to play sport to be attractive, and they also shouldn’t feel dominant. I would also like to say that I don’t think people really care if a woman wears a bra or…[Read more]
Our American values is freedom. Freedom of speech and freedom to live a happy life. Our country should not be made up of slavery. Abraham Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation” states that all slaves in the reb
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.
