I thought this was a very interesting topic. I do believe some of the music has gotten worse in certain ways, but there is also amazing music being produced. With all of our problems today, music lets us express how we feel. Although people might believe what they hear is “trashy”, these people are expressing their opinions. Sometimes you…[Read more]
I believe air pollution is a large problem around the US. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah where every winter our whole city gets polluted and struggles to push this air out. I think our first step would be having everyone get on board to come up with some solutions to better off our air quality. Simple things like not idling or carpooling…[Read more]
Afterlife is a common curiosity among the living. Many have different opinions about what happens after you die. Most of the ideas I have heard are related to the religion you believe in. There are ideas of going
I agree that Americans cherish their beliefs and values. I think you stated the main ones people tend to “fight for” or care more about. With the increase of culture in the United States, I feel as if there are more subjects that people have started to focus on. I don’t think the increase of these other subjects is a bad thing, it actually…[Read more]
Personally, I am interested in gun control. I don’t believe it should be legal because look at how many people are dying every day from pointless shootings. Our cops fear things, and their first response is to pull out a gun and shoot someone. Therefore if we do allow cops to have guns they need to be properly trained on when it is necessary…[Read more]
I do believe people she be careful of the Internet and what it can lead you to. However, most people going on the Internet in our day and age know what they are putting themselves into. When you are revealing personal information on line it is your choice whether or not to make your posts private or public. I believe it is a personal…[Read more]
I think this is a very important topic whether or not it is talked about a lot. I have heard some facts about the situation, but what you have said gives interesting information that I think everyone needs to know. It is crazy that women are still being treated unequally in our world today. However, if there was more awareness on the subject…[Read more]
I believe there are many types of skills people personally use to present information to a group of people. To me, the most important thing is to keep your audience interested. Some might not always be interested in your topic, but trying to add jokes or conversation to the presentation can change everything. Speaking loudly and holding a good…[Read more]
I really enjoy this. It popped up on my “feed” and I immediately clicked on it because anxiety is something that changes you. Your life is strongly influenced by anxiety, and will continue to be whether or not you want it to. I assume you have tried to “fix it” or “get rid of it”, but have learned it doesn’t work that way. It is inspiring that you…[Read more]
I found that depending on when you were born in your family, you will most likely have a different personality. The first born tends to be a perfectionist and acts as a parent would by telling the other siblings
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
