I like the message in this article. We may not get our traditional graduation celebration. But that doesn’t take away from any of our accomplishments. We still graduate we still made it. Not having graduation can put a damper on everything and we may not be inclined to celebrate, but we should because we deserve it.
I agree with you, Alysa. This senior year has been very different. Who would’ve thought the last day of the third quarter would be the end of senior year. I think we all had a little hope that we would go back by April but that didn’t work out as planned. We get no senior sunset, no prom, or graduation, and that’s very disappointing, to say the…[Read more]
The article I was reading was basically reviewing the best ways to reform foster care. The author of the article I read has a nonprofit organization called ABA center on children and the law. They were given a
I really enjoyed this article, the topic is very interesting to me. I always thought being vegetarian would inevitably help the environment but I never actually did the research, so thank you for posting this now I know that it could very potentially help the environment. The only things I think you should change in the article to make it stronger…[Read more]
This topic very important to me I like that you have decided to write about this. The topic is also frustrating, it’s been decades and black people are still looked at as less than as dangerous as uneducated and the list goes on and on it’s crazy. Here is an article I think would interest you https://www.washingtonpost.com
The article that I read on solutions U was discussing the problem of domestic violence in south africa. According to the South African Medical Research Council in 2017, 40 percent of South African men assault
I really like this article underage drinking is an issue. But drinking while driving is an even bigger issue that is probably the most severe. I don’t hear or see a lot about teenage alcoholics but there are tremendous amounts of stories about DUI’s for teens . I think your right when you say we need to keep promoting cautionary tales to let…[Read more]
I really enjoyed this topic. I believe it’s something very important. Your postal code really shouldn’t determine your destiny. Being black in a white world will sometimes make you insecure and might make you feel like you have to change in order to fit in. when in reality there’s really nothing you can do but get used to the fact that you are an…[Read more]
I liked your topic and I agree with what your saying one-hundred percent. This problem is not taken as seriously as it should. It’s killing sea life and will if it already hasn’t will affect human life. So we need to make a change before it’s to late. I think a tax is necessary, if people won’t recycle they should be taxed maybe not to much but…[Read more]
I really liked your article, great job! I found it fascinating. I liked how you connected the poem to your article in helping you answer the question you’ve been thinking about. But I do believe that people could have sex without love, we see it every day with people being drunk out of there minds and one night stands etc. But I also believe that…[Read more]
I really like this subject on animal cruelty and there are so many layers that can be talked about. I think your article is amazing but its missing certain layers. here a link( https://www.crueltyfreeinternational.org ) that goes into more detail on the subject and also talks about other perspectives on animal cruelty. Which I think would really…[Read more]
The first article perspective I’ve read was Pro-Life Women Do Not Want Reproductive Rights by Rachel Lu. One major claim she makes is Pro-life women look at America’s abortion rate and don’t think that wome
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.
