This is an interesting perspective on what it means to be an American. I think that maybe what’s happened is that what it means to be an American has morphed, but that fundamentally, to the core our values are still similar, just the way we’ve presented them have changed. Women and people of color are still discriminated against, just in…[Read more]
Cheryl, I thought this was really interesting, and I notice it happening a lot in my day to day life. For example, I can’t work on math for more than two hours, even if it’s a concept I’m really good at, because I start forgetting everything and making careless mistakes. This also happens to me in Theater, where the fiftieth time I recite a…[Read more]
I really liked your post. I agree with you too. I think that they had every right to kneel. If injustice is happening I think that peacefully protesting it on a national platform is one of the best ways to go. Many people argue that they were disrespecting the flag, but I have looked up flag code. If this is there main arguments it…[Read more]
This was a really interesting post to read. I personally love mythology. I don’t know much about the urban legends and urban myths that were conjured up to explain fear, but I do know some interesting myths. One that I find particularly interesting is the Pimuvit myth of how the sky got its stars. It’s said that animals angered a…[Read more]
Something that has interested me for years is sleep paralysis. Many people I have talked to have never experienced sleep paralysis, and after doing some research I’ve realized that this is not something that
Your piece is very interesting but there’s not much here about your findings. This sounds horrifying but you only go one sentence into explaining the intensity. It would be awesome if you went more into detail about this topic because there’s a lot about the topic. Find more!! This is an awesome topic.
While I do agree with you that in some ways music has gone downhill in the past few years, often I find music in certain genres lacking the depth that it used to have. However, there is more than one genre of music, and not all music today is the same. If you go looking for music that has more to it than just what most pop music has,…[Read more]
I really enjoyed reading your post. The tone you wrote it in seemed very friendly, which made it a fun and interesting read. I think that your outlook on school where you’re trying to focus on your academics while you’re in class, but after school looking for fun and new things to do is a really smart way to look at things and is going…[Read more]
I really enjoyed reading your post. I quite like the friendly tone, which made it fun and interesting to read, and the tone you used also made me feel like I was reading something a friend had written for me. It’s good that you have a balance between school life where you mostly focus on academics now after your Freshman year, and…[Read more]
Things change every day, but one thing that seems to remain constant is plastic. It’s found in a lot of different places for a variety of purposes, take for example the aglet on your shoelace, or the microwave in
Kristin, I think that everything you’re saying absolutely needs to be addressed. One part that stuck out to me specifically was when you mentioned kids being taught peace, love, and care for one another. I do wonder though if our kids are still being taught that. I have cousins in the elementary school system, two of them are still in first…[Read more]
Hello Amran, I think you’re topic is quite compelling. There are a lot of little shops scattered throughout my hometown, and I don’t often think about how big business effects them. I have thought about how netflix killed the video storehttps://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/flowchart/2010/09/23/how-netflix-and-blockbuster-killed-blockbuster, but…[Read more]
Darrtell, I love this topic because I love the oceans myself. This summer I went on a service trip with a primary emphasis on ocean conservation, so I got to learn a lot of things about what we can do to help our oceans, and the damage that we as people have actually been causing. One of the worst things we can do for the ocean is, as a whole…[Read more]
Issa, I think this is a really interesting idea for your capstone project. I know the basics about women not going to school and not having the same education opportunities as men, but I have never looked at this problem in Yemen, so reading this was an eye opener. All of your statistics and source citing helped to convey your point well and…[Read more]
I thought up this post using the initial question of, “what is the history of magic?” Well, I now know that magic has a very, very long history. So, I broke it up into pieces and started looking for an ea
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.
