As Coronavirus spreads in the world, people become more and more serious about it. How to protect ourselves and others from it has become a hot topic. Quarantine and social distancing worked well in the past few
Hi Gedeon, I partly disagree with the idea of adding the career aspect into the high school AP courses. It’s not feasible for most high school students to spend time on careers that they don’t even know if they are interested in or will be study in. Therefore, there will be less and less students going to place themselves into AP courses.…[Read more]
Hi Danny, I found this issue controversial because different states have different laws on death penalty. In my point of view, no one has the right to take others’ lives away, even that person had killed another person. It’s not a problem if death penalty is effective, but it’s a problem if we are right to do so.…[Read more]
Currently, more and more people are faced with the problem of depression and pressure from work or school. Especially, teenagers are having higher and higher suicide rate overtime. How to deal with this social
I think suicide is a interesting topic. Awareness and signs around school only make it worse. When you expose people to suicides and talk about people killing themselves, it only places those thoughts in their minds. The solution is trying to see people going through these hard times, not necessarily avoiding the problem.
I am surprised by your post, “Stop Suicide,” because I like your topic. This topic is very important for the tennegers.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Methods to reduce the suicide rate become important to these people. Pharmacotherapy and Psychotherapy are proven to be effective in preventing suicides.” I think this is great because there are people who can help people with their problems. They can vent and thus stop thinking about committing suicide.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like this topic. I like how people know about this topic and how other people they have this problem may know that there is a lot of help and they are not alone.
Estimado Honam, Estoy muy de acuerdo con su publicación, “Detener el suicidio”, por que es muy cierto que cada vez hay más personas enfrentándose a problemas de depresión, hay diferentes tipos de depresión a el que las personas enfrentan dia con dia. Para estos tipos de problemas las personas necesitan ayuda profesional.
Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “los suicidios son causados principalmente por deficiencias en la resolución de problemas cuando se enfrentan a situaciones extremas de la vida” creo que esto es algo muy importante porque hay muchas personas que tienen diferentes tipos de problemas como problemas familiares,escolares,en la calle y otros más. Estas personas muchas veces porque no saben como resolver sus problemas y ellos piensan que la mejor manera de arreglar las cosas es el suicidio. Pero estas personas están muy equivocadas en vez de suicidarse deben buscar ayuda con familiares o psicólogos para que ellos puedan ayudarlos y no se suiciden. Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribas a continuación, porque tus publicaciones hablan de cosas importantes que nuestras sociedad debe de saber, para que en nuestro mundo no haya tantos suicidios en nuestro país. Y para que las personas que tengan algún tipo de problema busquen ayuda con otras personas y no se dejen vencer por el miedo a no resolver sus problemas.
Dear Honam, i think that your writing is important because way to many people are taking their own life. i think that it is important people realize that now there are so many times teens are doing this and it’s sad because it’s caused by so much that is going on in their life that so many people might not even know about them. Even the most simple thing that anyone could can be so hard for them and make them feel like they can’d do it.
Hi Lola, I found this interesting that less and less people consider capital punishment effective as a deterrant to crimes. Instead, impriosnment has been more effective. I think it may be time to revise the punishment given to criminals. Here is an interseting ressearch from Dartmouth College.…[Read more]

Hi Haonam I agree with your claim about women should have right to make choice over their body. The Untited States was established on the idea of freedom of choice, therefore in the United States we should let our women to have choice over their own body.

Hi Cassie, I found intriguing that there are both opponents and proponents of homework. I partly agree with both sides that students should be given homework but it should be at an appropriate amount. Educators should think about how to assign homework more scientifically, making it helpful and not…[Read more]

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.
