The Rocky Horror Picture Show found it’s beginning in June of 1973 in a dingy London theatre that used to be an old movie house, under the name The Rocky Horror Show: A Musical. The show was written by Richard
The Rocky Horror Picture Show has had a cult following since the film first reared it’s low-budget head in 1975. My research question is what has attracted such a huge cult following and how has the film retained
This was such a powerful piece. I really like the abrupt ending, I think that it really works well with the subject matter and the style of the rest of the piece. In the first line, I think you’re missing the word “me”. Other than that, excellent work.
I really like your message here. She is a perfect candidate for a wonderful president. In the second to last line, you said you wanted a man who was well educated. I was a little confused by this, but overall, wonderful piece.
I am a feminist. And, do you know what, I totally do complain about silly little issues. You’re totally right. All I do as a feminist is sit there and complain about how I won’t be paid as much as a man for doing the same job. I mean, 80 cents to man’s 1 dollar is totally fair and great! Also, in Utah, where I live, it’s 71 cents (for the average…[Read more]
As of 2014, 33 million people in the United States did not have health insurance, a serious epidemic and a huge issue for many people with serious medical problems that do not have access to health care that
I am in an agreement with you about affordable health care. I agree with the points you made in your post “Affordable Care?” ” because you highlighted that millions are unable to get affordable healthcare, which is unacceptable. You bring awareness that healthcare is a human right that everyone should have access to.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The right to health care is an internationally recognized basic human right, alongside the right to a free and equal life, many other rights the United States chooses to uphold to the absolute best of their ability (for the most part). Health care should not be any different”. I think these sentences are powerful because it emphasizes the fact that it is imperative that every one human receives affordable health care. You show that the right to health care is just as important as the right to an equal life.
Another sentence that I found important was: “As of 2014, 33 million people in the United States did not have health insurance, a serious epidemic and a huge issue for many people with serious medical problems that do not have access to health care that they can actually afford. ” This stood out for me because the fact that so many people are unable to afford insulin is absurd. It is unethical that health care companies charge so much money for healthcare, something that everyone needs and depends on.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I agree with the points you made. I am also concerned with similar problems. Check out my blog https://wordpress.com/view/insulinforall.wordpress.com.
The FDA has yet to label marijuana as a safe medicine, despite the organization’s outward support for research of the drug, due to the unknown risks and side-effects of the drug. However, research about m
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.
