In our new era of technology, we see the beneficial ways that it has impacted our constant growing society. From an outside perspective, most of us have become accustomed the state of unknowingness that these new
You make very interesting inferences on how we all perceive each other. It’s amazing to think of how different we all are from one another. These things are what make us all so unique. It also becomes hard sometimes because many have xenophobic views that prevent us from wanting to be original and different from the rest. But, the most we can do…[Read more]
Jada, you make an interesting point. I’ve thought of this question too. Why come to school if you’re not going to do anything to help you in any way? Some could consider it a waste of time that could be used to focus on things that are more beneficial to you? Then again, that’s what school is made for even though some students do not treat it as such.
Your statement put a whole new perspective on my life. It’s really interesting to think that if you just change one little thing in your routine, you can be off on a better track than you were before. Personally, I need to start focusing on having more of a positive attitude towards the things I can’t control in my life, and this put new ideas in…[Read more]
In our society, we sometimes find it hard to put ourselves in a position to open up to others. In my life, I can definitely relate to what you have to say. I tend to not be emotionally vulnerable with other people without feeling uncomfortable or needy in some way. It’s nice to know that others are experiencing the same problems that I…[Read more]
After reading your response, I want to take a different mindset into the products I use and if they have an impact on animal testing or not. I was mostly unknowing of the fact that animal testing is also harmful to humans, but your response helped me think deeper into animal testing.
Through my readings, I researched the aftermath of Kavanaugh’s confirmation and the effects it has on the #MeToo movement. In all three of the articles, they all regard personal narratives, and details providing t
I like how you illustrated the feeling of anxiety. We all experience it, some more than others. Personally, I anxiety and I can relate to you in the sense that I always feel like I am in a room full of eyes. Anxiety is a hard thing to go through, but to know that others go through the same thing, you feel not so alone. Thank you for sharing such a…[Read more]
I agree with your ideas in the sense that you support the argument based off of sex trafficking. Many of the people in the sex work business are often forced into it with no choice but to make it their job. You stated a well thought out observation of the two main perspectives.
Throughout the years, there have been many executions on Death Row. Some believe that the act is the best form of punishment, however, it can also depend on the seriousness of the crime. A lot of the time, the
Hey Bella, I really liked your piece about the death penalty. I thought you did a really good job of showing both points without showing a certain bias toward either of them. Also I liked how you asked the question, “What makes human beings decided what is moral and what is not?”. It makes the reader think and I liked that. Overall I thought the piece was well written.
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.
