Diseases are around us all the time and they are usually not that much of a deal. We have our seasonal flu’s and occasional diseases that are different than that. CoronaVirus, or COVID-19, is the disease that h
I thought that your argument on pro-choice is really good! I believe that women should have a choice to choose whether they want a the child or not. and women should have the right to choose what they want to do with their own bodies, and not have men/ the law be the deciding factor of what they should do with their bodies.
I thought that your post on the opioid problem that we have in America is a really important topic to talk about. it was really fascinating to know how many people are misusing opioids. Here is a site with a closer scope of our opiod problem, because Utah has a major opioid problem too.
There has been a lot of controversy about whether students should listen to music while they study. Some believe that it is detrimental to learning, and others believe that it helps students learn and memorize
Dear Carter: I am liking what you said in your post “Is Music Good or Bad While You Study?” because I agree that listening to music can help to focus more and be more relaxed.
One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “Listening to music can also help with reducing test anxiety.” I think teachers should allow students to listen to music during tests because it can maybe help with people getting better grades.
Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your post is very informational.
i am impressive with your post ” is music good or bad while you study” because is fun to listen to music but is not good when you are study because people get distracted and don’t do the work in class.
thanks for your writing. i look forward to seeing what you write next thanks.
Dear Carter, I really loved your post about is music good or bad while you study. I agree with you I personally enjoy music while I study because it can block out background noise. I thought the way you presented the information was fantastic, here is an Article that supports both sides.
I agree with you. I am a person who needs to listen to music while I do homework. Otherwise I lose interest and struggle focusing. That said I believe the “is music beneficial” argument is subjective, and it varies person to person. It appears you agree when you stated, “Listening to music is also not helpful for everyone as well, and can just become a distraction the whole time while they are trying to learn as well.” I for one really benefit from listening to music. However I also know many people who cannot listen to music as it distracts them. Thank you for your post as I feel your input on the subject is rather interesting. I look forward to seeing more posts from you.
I liked your article. I agree that graffiti is all around cities and people do vandalize places, but I do still believe that some people that do graffiti is beautiful and that they doin express themselves and show messages through it.
here is a link to an article that is a discussion post website on the controversies of graffiti that I…[Read more]
I really thought that your article on underage drinking and how to prevent it was really interesting. I think that people should not be drinking under age and people should be an advocate for themselves to be better and healthier. We are young and I know that it happens all of the time around the United States.
A lot of people think that a vegetarian diet is not good for a person. A vegetarian diet is actually the same, if not better, than a regular omnivore diet. Also being a vegetarian lowers the risk of heart
Is gun control really taking away our second amendment rights? I do not think that it does. Gun control should limit the people who buy guns and what type of guns. The second amendment should not be an unlimited
I see what you’re getting at, but machine guns are already illegal. Gun owners can buy accessories to make their semi-auto rifle similar to that of an automatic. The purpose of the second amendment was in case of a tyrannical government, the people will be able to defend themselves. Now the only machine guns people can legally own are ones made prior to the cutoff date in 1986, but those are very expensive, usually in the five figure range, and individually/closely tracked by the ATF.
There have been numerous wildfires occurring in California over the past few years. Many people are being evacuated and affected by these fires. People’s homes, offices, and other belongings all have the p
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.
