Does this novel connect to 2017 because “different” people in this time are being segregated like in this novel. The different people are being forced into perspective of the government and people are coercion a
Thank you for your post about how Divergent connects to 2017. I really enjoyed reading your opinions on your book and reading the connection that you found in terms of segregation. One thing I was confused about was your discussion of coercion. I believe you are confused by this term. You said, “here was a time where she shows Tris doing a coercion by breaking the glass from the in the test.” However, coercion is something a government does to its people in order to get them to follow them. But, in this case Tris is actually rebelling against the coercion of the government and is illustrating anti-consent. Look forward to reading more about you and hearing more about your book.

I appreciate your interest in exploring the effects of drugs on teens. I believe it is important to be educated, but especially educated on something that may influence severe health and social relational issues. Like you said using one-time can lead to addiction and even lead the teen to steal from family. In my experience I have had peers that have had this happen to them. It would be great if every teen realized that drugs have long-term effects that could negatively impact their academic future.

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.
