Anika I think you did an amazing job on the topic of uniforms. I really like that you provided the history behind the dress code and I found it very interesting. I found a source on the pros and cons on uniforms and I believe it will be very useful to your research. Great job Anika! https://smartasset.com/mortgage/the-pros-and-cons-of-school-uniforms
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]
Rebellion is something that has been seen all our lives. An act of violent or open resistance used in order to defend one’s personal point. Anything from peaceful marchers to violent protests. An act of r
Gwen I really liked all the input and information that was in your article and how sad these facts can really be and how real it is in today’s world. How true it rings and that it shouldn’t be this way. I also liked when you mentioned STEM as well. I also found this article that I think would be helpful to your research as well. Thank you again…[Read more]
Oswaldo I think that this poem is very personal and rings very true to a lot of things that have happened in my life. I love that you made multiple comparison’s like to Romeo and Juliet and tied that into why something like this can become so bad. I found this article which I think really ties into your post and you might enjoy. 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. When reading your post I really enjoyed that you put a lot of input on how you saw things and then included opinions from other sources as well and made a connection. This was very well…[Read more]
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]
I say I have to agree with what you say in your post.That in our society we have our own values and a say in the choices we make.

Kianna I have to say that when reading this I agree with you one hundred percent. I really liked that you to come the time to do the research and look into the history of a specific area. It made your point all that stronger. I also found another article on the national drinking age act that I believe that would help you a…[Read more]
In contrast to my overall opinion on the drinking age I have found research that explains why the drinking age should be lowered from 21 and not raised. It goes over many important key factors and shows that there
Veronica I found this story to be very interesting and to be quite accurate especially in my own life as a high school student. I tend to procrastinate a lot and it usually doesn’t help me when trying to control my stress levels. When I finished reading your story it reminded me of a time I came across an article that spoke about the pros and cons…[Read more]
Julissa I have to generally agree with everything that your sources talked about especially because there have been times with my family where they have been separated because they where undocumented. Especially the point made where this will further cause trauma in the future like for example depression and anxiety. While I read this it reminded…[Read more]
When it comes to drinking in my opinion I believe that things should stay the way they have already been established. Laws have been made for a reason, and these laws are here to allow us to be more safe, and
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
