Max, this is very interesting!! I think it is important that you are discussing this topic because in our society we need to better understand this because we can potentially help a lot of people. It will help us to further our knowledge on what causes sadness to stay for long periods of time and how to help people with depression and other…[Read more]
Elizabeth, you’re article about your shadow box is so inspiring. I think it’s so incredible that you embrace your ethnicity in this way. You should be proud of your heritage and where you came from because that is who you are. You deserve respect from those around you. I think it’s awesome you are standing up to the stereotypes you have faced…[Read more]
This article is great! You added some great, strong, and powerful words! Good job! This post makes me think that everyone are not good or bad people, but I am. And I agree, you will never know what a truly good person looks like. So keep up the good work! I love this article.
This is such of an amazing and interesting article. I just love how firm you are and aware of what it trully means to actually be a “good person”. I completely agree with you in the part where you, Cheryl, confirmed, “In my opinion there’s no one way this can be an accurate definition.” Building off of this part, a lot of people define a good persson in their own ways. Which will change over time and per person. Keep on thinking deeply about evrything!
This article is good! I agree with you on how everyone is good and bad, but every person is good in their own way. Something that stood out for me is when you said “In my opinion there’s no one way this can be an accurate definition” what are you trying to say is how there is no right or wrong answer for people to understand about what “good” is, but your right like I said before everyone is good in their own way and their is a right defintion.
Hi Cheryl, I am intrigued by your research. People have different opinions about different things. You wrote that “you may simply never know what a truly good person looks life”, and I agree with this point because there is no actual definition of a good person so there is no way to give the accurate definition of good person. I also agree that we should look at positive side of ourselves. We were taught that we always need to think about other people and what impact will we bring to other people but how can a person know if he/she is doing the right thing or the wrong thing?

Hi Zoe! I really love your article. I think it’s really important for people to identify hate and what drives people to hurt or be mean to other people because our world is so overcome by violence and hate these days. We need more love and knowing that it’s important to have positive relationships and that these are what makes us human is…[Read more]
Hi Darrtell! I love you topic. I’m really interested in this because I find the health and safety of our world so important. We need our oceans and with people throwing trash into them and being careless about the wildlife that inhabits them, we are killing something vital to our universe. It’s crazy to think that if we keep going in this…[Read more]
Hi Walter!! Your post is awesome and I love what you’re doing for your research project because air pollution is such a big problem in today’s society. It’s good to be passionate about this topic because it truly affects all of us. I live in Utah and our air quality is one of the worst in the United States. It’s almost weird that ours is so bad…[Read more]
I just did your survey. I just want to say I really like what you are discovering here. I think it will be interesting to see how many people believe sexism still exists. In my opinion, it does in many aspects of our country. However I know many people who are afraid to admit they are a feminist or against sexism issues because they are worried…[Read more]
First off, I’d like to say I really like your article and discussion of topic. I’ve never truly asked myself this question because I’ve always excepted my existence to be human and live as a human. I find it very strange how lights would be the first thing to disappear. Do you think the human race could regenerate even with other mammals taking…[Read more]
Transitioning into our last year of high school, we are constantly being reminded of the ways we are growing and the important upcoming decisions we must all make. However how do we truly know what we’re supposed
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.
