I strongly agree with your argument. As a matter of fact people do care about their appearance or what people say about them. Although many people see videos or Tv shows that influence them that their natural selves is not good enough so they try to change their appearance even though they are just damaging themselves. Lastly, the…[Read more]
I´m very interested in the plot of this book. I like how you talked about the book with as much detail as you could put in. I also liked how no one would expect that part to happen. I like to read these kind of book to since there is always a twist to it. Hopefully you get to finish your book on time and hope to hear the rest of…[Read more]
Farah is now in Quetta with her mom and once they arrived at her aunt’s house they went out and tried to find any news of her brothers but there was no sign of them that at least they came through Quetta.
I think that abortion is different due to religious beliefs because if a person is really dedicated to their religion then they won’t do any of the restrictions their religion has told them not to do. Let’s say a religion tells every women is committing sin if they abort their child or it’s not the baby’s fault that they are coming to earth. Whi…[Read more]
Comment: I agree with everything you are saying and can relate to some of this, since my parents crossed the border. If they build a wall all the immigrants that work in the field will stop working and this will lead to few processed food in our local grocery store.

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.
