Your article was filled with tons of info, and i agree with you on every point you made. I agree zoo’s are unacceptable for the animals and human. Wild animals should not be caged, instead they should be roaming free in the wild. I heard and read about the Harambre situation, and it was horrible. I don’t think the zookeepers should have…[Read more]
I was shocked about the information I discovered throughout this piece of writing. I would have never thought that Veterinarians would commit suicide more than doctors. My dream career is too be a Veterinarian and I knew someday I would have too possibly put an animal down if I ever become one. I like how you explained the different…[Read more]
I believe animal testing should be legal for many reasons. The main one is tests have contributed to discoveries of life-saving cures and treatments for humans. The second reason is animals are the closest living thing to a human being. Which makes them appropriate subject for testing. Also some tests can’t be performed on humans do…[Read more]
American values, creeds, beliefs, and culture are very important to us because they make us who we are. I believe our values are important because their our personal belongings or views that we value or cherish.

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.
