Through this news I knew about world war II and how it was ended and this is very well-written. But it differs from the war in my country, Yemen, because the war in Yemen is a civil war and a struggle to seize power. In Yemen, some people do not find food and feel anxious and the salary is not available in these circumstances.
But I hope that…[Read more]
This question makes me confused because it concerns us. What I think I already know is that my country continues the war for five years, but we want to end this tragic war that has destroyed the country and the
Overall great job Ebrahim presenting the information. I really like how detailed and oriented your facts are. It helps the reader easily understand what its happening on Yemen. You do a great job explaining what is happening however, I think you should explain maybe a possible solution or two.
I agree with Casey! I think you did a great job writing and presenting the important facts, but in some instances come up with ways to solve the problems that are going on and how they can affect everyone and then maybe connect it to other places. Overall you did a very good job and I hope to read more of your writing soon!
Good job on this writing. I liked how you went into depth to describe the issues arising with the war going on in Yemen. I also liked how you talked about how devastating the war is, and why it really is so bad. Overall great post!
This was a great piece! I learned a lot about what’s going on in Yemen because of this and it allowed me to develop my own views on the issue as well. I think that the background information you gave about the country before the war started showed that it isn’t just a country that is defined by war.
If you want to look more into this issue, I would recommend reading this article: https://www.cfr.org/interactive/global-conflict-tracker/conflict/war-yemen.
Overall, great job!
Hey Ebrahim, my parents are from Yemen I know how it feels and how it hurts them. I honestly did not know any of this. This post really touched me and gave me a bigger idea. I love how you describe everything. Thanks for your time and putting this post out there, people really need to know. I look forward to seeing your future posts.
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.
