Jerome, I was very intrigued by this topic because I have never heard this argument before. Personally, I’ve always felt that injured players will always be treated with the best care possible despite of their race, religion, or gender. However, I cannot speak for athletes all around the country. Do you think injury discrimination happens in all…[Read more]
I think this is a great topic. I often see posts saying “Why didn’t we learn this in school?” or “History books never taught us this” in reference to a minority in history. Many people don’t even realize they are missing out on so much of our world’s and country’s history because what we learn in school does not cover it all. It seems as though…[Read more]
I was intrigued by your post because your personal take on the issue drew me in. You told us what it’s like to be an immigrant, what it’s like to feel judged for your differences. I agree that immigration is not something to fear. My favorite part of your discussion was the conclusion: ” Something I would tell the leaders of America is…[Read more]
This was a great topic. It’s crazy how we all differ in what motivates us and in what we are motivated to learn about. Not only does this impact us in school, but it impacts our futures, too. I completely agree with you that we are motivated to do better in something we are interested in. People always say “follow your passions” because we…[Read more]
I agree with what your saying with sibling “one of the most profound effects siblings have on you is that area of conflict resolution skills, that area of relationship formation and maintenance.” Me and my 2 brothers and 1 sister are always fighting but we always love each other by the end of the day having siblings can ether make a family or break it.
Hi Beth!! I have two younger siblings and am the oldest child and I found many connections between this article and my life. My younger sister id definitely the most adventurous of our family, but she also strives to be like me. It is quite possible I have never related to something more than the quote, “Children born second have the advantage of calmer, more experienced parents” because as the oldest child, I feel there is so much my parents don’t know. I thinl you would enjoy this article, https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-94-010-0618-7_3, about birth order affecting sibling competition. I look forward to what you write next because your writing is very good!
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.
