I am happy your favorite word is explore as it can be a very creative and thought provoking activity. While the word may be an enigma with its multiple definitions and uses. Your idea of relating curiosity and exploration is very clever, as curiosity can be a cause or an effect for exploration. Thank you Tyler I very much appreciated…[Read more]

Hello Jacob, I really appreciate the fact that you brought the idea of mob mentality from the olden days, torches and screaming peoples, to the online aspect that it as has evolved into. The one thing I felt was missing from your argument is the working behinds mobs and what they are. While you may have provided examples it did not show your…[Read more]
I enjoyed your argument Abby, but one thing I found a bit off setting was your idea of mass shootings or other events as the “norm” kind of makes your argument seem insensitive or apathetic. Might’ve just been the way I read your post, but I think your writing is very good beside my earlier comment.
What does it mean to be American? Well that’s entirely up to your definition of American, but for those of you who aren’t satisfied with their ideas on this topic don’t worry I am here to give opinions.The thi
I agree with you Sanath on what really is an American creed it truly has many different views on what it can be because it does vary from person to person on their aspects on life. The knowledge they have or grow up with really will put a good thought to what they believe it is.
I like the way you introduced the meaning of the death penalty and why it is a concern in todays day and age. I am one of the people that believe that the death penalty should be illegal because it is expensive and no person deserves death. As prison break has shown conviction is not solid.

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.
