Hello, my name is Cruz Armenta and we are currently reading in English class about robots technology and future possibilities. About how if, robots will end up taking over the world or not and about their
I really like this topic you chose to write about because in our school a fight had just happened involving gangs but luckily no guns were involved. But I do agree on how there should be better security to keep students safe. Police should respond faster even if there is not major danger. Will anyone do something about students safety on every…[Read more]
Sophie this really outstands to me “Illegal immigrants are not the problem in this case. Lazy people living off welfare when they can actually get off their butts and work are the problem.” This relates to me because I have the same thoughts. People living of welfare are the ones taking money away from the government then they blame us!
Arely – This line really outstands me – “Living in Oakland has never made me forget about my culture.
There is a lot of religious places where my culture gets together. The church. The sweat. The mosque. The temple. Having a diverse community helps keep my culture alive and learn different cultures.” This relates to me because I also live in…[Read more]
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.
