This is such a poignant article. Today’s society is basically accepts gun violence in schools as a sad but normal occurrence. I like the quote from the mom who said rather than coming up legislation, we are teaching our kids how to defend themselves. This is an article…[Read more]
This is a topic that is very important in today’s society. I found it most interesting that Australia’s payment system waits for students to have a higher income level. In the U.S., it is expected you start paying immediately. My question is, how do you propose the United States implements these methods of payment? You gave a brief explanation of…[Read more]

This was one of the most interesting debates in modern society. Prostitution is one of the oldest professions to exist, but has always had the stigma of being an unclean and dirty profession. I wonder what caused you to look deeper into this topic. It is very interesting and how you think this topic affects society. I found a pro and con website…[Read more]
This was very interesting. I specifically thought it was cool when you told the difference between the different uniforms for different climates. I was wondering how this topic will directly impact your life. Do the armed forces have any plans to change the current attire? I also found this link for you (https://www.army.mil/uniforms/).

I found it to be very good that you included both sides of this argument, which allows for the reader to learn your thoughts, but also obtain some of their own. It is such a tough argument to make, as it mainly comes down to personal opinion, but you did a good job to make it factual. I would just wonder slightly what your own view on this topic is? This is just such as heated topic, and news stations are constantly reporting on this issue, so that might be good resource to get an even wider range of opinions. I will definitely be back to read more.
Good job on discussing the possible pros and cons of a difficult ethical topic. I like how you summarized the main argument of each side in a concise sentence. One thing that I feel could have been added is possible other solutions to horrendous crime to replace the death penalty. While you give good reasons to keep or abolish it, you did not give a possible replacement. Despite this, you did a good job at citing your sources and bringing in unbiased sides of the argument.
I really enjoyed reading your article. I liked how you presented both sides of the argument and provided articles that included additional arguments and details. This made me more aware of what people think regarding this topic.

What is your opinion in the matter? Thank you for sharing, I hope to see more of your writing in the future.
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.
