Christian I really love that your choosing this topic to write about and look into especially because it’s such a heavy topic especially today in our world. But I agree that peace can really be met only when we come together and truly are able to understand each other. Great job and I love the way you talk about this topic.
In the documentary Walt the Man Behind the Myth it is made clear that Walt was loved unconditionally and that his life was no easier than mine or yours may be. Going into detail about all the stories that piece
Angelica, how do you think the uncertainty and pitfalls made Walt Disney the way he was, besides not being able to build his empire? I am curious as to how it affected him as a person. I think that would be a cool insight for your paper.
Angelica, I found your topic so interesting! Walt Disney was so inspirational for so many people, but it is easy for use to glamorize someone who seems to have anything. Do you think his personal issues affected the dark themes or early Disney movies? Here is a link you might like, https://screenrant.com/disney-movies-too-dark-for-kids-inappropriate/. Given I know it is not the most reliable source, but it could help you get some insight. Let me know what you think and overall great job!
I am surprised by your post “ Walt the man behind the myth”, because your write about that sometimes we judge a person’s story and alone just because we see that his life seems very easy, but enreality is not.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ judge a person’s story, and to not assume that they are as simple as they may seem.” I think this is true because nothing is as it seems.
THanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because is interesting the that you write.
Ari I found this really interesting to read about and I think it’s really cool to look more into. I really agree that a lot of the time the media can impact a lot the way that we can view politics. Whether this can be in a positive or negative way and a lot of the time it does seem to be negative. I think your doing an amazing job and to keep…[Read more]

Walter Elias Disney, to be completely honest I wasn’t even aware Walt Disney had a middle name. The more I dive into who this man really is the more surprised I become. Walter Elias Disney went through a lot m

I agree with the point you make that what american means can be very different depending on the person and their experiences. I also like how you provide other examples like literature rather than just pointing out the views of other people. I think you did very well in providing a sense of what american means. I also found this source…[Read more]

Thank you again…[Read more]

Kelsey I would have to say that I overall agree with your post strongly that people should not be judged in any way and situation just because of their race.

Lindsey I have to agree with your post on gun control. I think that it proves a very great point in our society today and shows that things are becoming more and more crazy, like how you mentioned in your post that bullets are even made available in vending machines to some people in specific areas. I really liked as well that you includes 3 and…[Read more]

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.
