Hello Franciely, your post took me by surprise. I agree with one of your student, you do have a right to speak whatever language you want. One of America’s constitution is allowing free speech, therefore the teacher who was against you and your friends for speaking Spanish is wrong. I like how you stated that “I have the right to speak whatever…[Read more]
Kayden, I found your post to be interesting. I think that the government should only have a limit amount of power and we should have the freedom to do what we want. I like how you stated what three major roles the government should play like protecting the citizens from outside sources, justice rights, and public goods. As a US citizens, I believe…[Read more]
As a society people are becoming more stress than previous generation. To know why many people are becoming stress, we first have to define stress. Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand o
Jalayah, this topic that you brought up is important. I believe college tuition should also be reduce to a point where everyone has a chance to go to college, if they want to. I don’t believe that just because you don’t have enough money you can’t go to college. One thing you said that I can relate to is “30% of americans have such an aversion to…[Read more]
Casey, I also agree with you. I really don’t know what the best way is to stop gun violence in America. I think restriction on gun laws and banning gun in general will reduce the amount of mass shooting, but won’t necessarily stop it. I don’t know if there will ever be a stop to mass shooting. One thing I like about your post is when you stated…[Read more]
Christopher, i can tell there is a lot of emotion coming from this post , and if you list times of racism or discrimination i will happily fight them with you but it’s such a problem when people claim victimhood but never prove it. i need to know specifically if you want others help. statistically speaking african americans have a higher chance of getting into college they just dont take that chance. and the picture you used has thought and good intent behind it but i just dont see police brutality anywhere. and again if you can point any instance for me i will gladly stand behind you but i just dont see it.
I found your article to be engaging you talk about which ninja turtle are you? I feel like I’m either Donatello or Michaelangelo. This article expresses what type of person are you and how your personality correlates to a ninja turtle. I feel like you should’ve had an intro paragraph about the topic and introduce that there are four…[Read more]
Hello Kimberly, I found your comment to be interesting. I can somewhat relate to this, being an immigrant in the United States and learning to adapt to a new culture. I like how you stated the importance of friendship, “my friendship is really important to me because my friends have been there for me and I don’t know what I would do with them.” F…[Read more]
To be able to answer this question, you first have to define what the definition of friend is. A friend is a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically one exclusive of sexual or family
I am excited about your post because you talk about different qualities that make friend good friends. Another thing you talk about not having too many friends because not everyone can be trusted and I personally think that’s really important for many people to know.
One thing that stands out to me is ” If a person has a similar value like you do then you are most likely to become their friend.” I think this is intelligent because this gives people a good example on what to look for in a friend.
Jackalyn, your comment on American culture is important and is especially important to me because I am not born in America but consider myself as an American. I like how you stated in your first sentence that “America culture was built on freedom and liberty for all,” which I believe is what America is all about. America should not be based on…[Read more]
Issa, this topic for sure took my interest. I think its very interesting that in Yemen girls do not get as much authority as boys. I liked how you brought up something that is happening outside of the Untied States and how it deals with education. Many people from the United Sates will focus on US issues, but you brought up an issue in a country…[Read more]
I found this comment important Tomas. Food is essential for living and by raising the price of food it will make it difficult for one to receive food. One thing I particularly like is when you stated that by constructing the bullet train in California everyone would be affected. I found a fascinating article about the bullet train and how much it…[Read more]
Matthew your post was interesting and informative. I like how you talk about ways to prevent identity theft when you stated “safe search as well as get strong passwords that contain capitals, numbers, and even symbols.” I believe that everyone should not be sharing their passwords with others and make it complex enough so it is not easy to hack. I…[Read more]
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.
