Kevin, great piece of writing! Our class also read 1984 and it’s such a great piece of dystopian literature. It was so cool that the government creates fake conscious and how citizens have to hide from their own thoughts and feelings from fear of the thought police! It’s a great read. Do you think Orwell was trying to warn us as rea…[Read more]

You propose a very interesting question. I like how you brought up that students are asking for change. Maybe you should explore what kind of change they are asking for or why charter schools don’t get as much funding. Great job!

Thanks for your writing. i look forward to seeing what you write next because your saying the by that time people don’t know why Earthquakes happened. The other text I read about The Tsunami was about in Japan. In 2011 a Tsunami surprise Japan it was around 6 pm when the Tsunami came destroying everything. It caused a lot of damage. A lot of people lost their houses because of that all people were scared they thought no one was going to survive. I hope never being on one of this situations because that would be horrible.
The effects of tsunamis as well as earthquakes are truly devastating and tragic. I as well hope they never occur in any other parts of the world. It is very sad seeing how many lives are ended as well as whole cities that are torn apart. Here are some articles regarding earthquakes I think would be interesting to learn further information about earthquakes and where have hit in different countries. a https://earthquake.usgs.gov/

esteemed PRIMO enrique I’m happy with his publication he did because he’s talking about that A lot of people died. Also I saw a movie called Terremoto which was almost the same thing as this book because it showed a family that was trying to survive but the Terremoto was very strong the man was trying to save his daughter who was stuck in a building. But he couldn’t due to the fact that he was also struggling to save his own life. I hope my family and I never been in an Earthquake because we can die in a few minutes. Never would I have thought that earthquakes would be so dangerous.

What a great story about your connections to the source “Kareem.” I especially liked when you shared that you knew people who lived in Nebraska like him but then talked about the differences between their lives and Kareem’s life.

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.
