There are many values shared by most Americans, however, the core values that define Americans as a whole are freedom, equality, and the strive to always be better. These are considered...
Hey Christian, I like how you cut right to the chase with the sources and used an abundance of evidence. However, in the future you may want to spend a little more time explaining your sources better and how they relate to the topic. I also thought your last sentence tied the whole piece together very well by directly relating back to the topic sentence.
There are a vast amount of values, beliefs, and creeds across the United States that make America the diverse melting pot it is. Although, there are still some core values shared by many Americans and though not

This is a pretty important topic as it affects the lives of billions of people across the world. Even though some people have quite different opinions on the matter, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
This is a youth-powered social network and multimedia 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 10,000 posts and over 17,000 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.
