I think your thoughts about prisoners getting the right to vote very informative on the benefits of getting prisoners their right to vote. I thought your second paragraph about criminals getting their rights said to them, but then being denied to them. I think your topic is interesting and I would love some more research on states that…[Read more]
Your article gave quite a surprise. I had no idea that the original owners of Krispy Kreme are ancestors of Nazi supporters. I wonder how it feels to know that your ancestors were supporters of one of the worst people in world history. I think the owners of Krispy Kreme did the right in donating to the Holocaust survivors to help right the…[Read more]
I think your solution is very interesting and can be taken in very different areas about the environment and how being a vegetarian will help the body. I think being vegetarian will help lower the green house emissions and lower the process of climate change. I think you should consider that going vegetarian is more expensive than buying…[Read more]
Utah inversion is a period during the winter season where a layer of warm air gets trapped in cold air around the valley and pollutes the atmosphere affecting breathing conditions for all Utah’s. The main reason
YES! Coming from Chicago, a city with a vast public transportation infastructure, SLC needs to improve their offerings. This would help with air quality and to support the growth the valley is projected to see in the upcoming years. I also think more people need to be encouraged to take the buses and carpool up the canyons, so maybe a campaign about that would help, too.
In a Washington Post opinion piece, Helaine Olen argues that It’s long past time to raise the minimum wage. (Olen, 2019) Olen claims that by increasing the minimum wage, many people would see a pay boost increase
Great article which presented a lot of facts, and overall didn’t let bias or opinions lead the article. It was a good choice to include your opinion at the end, but not to let it drive the narrative of where the article was going. I feel that the issue of minimum wage is a complicated subject which needs to be addressed in a way that can benefit everyone.
Great comparative essay, you did well to present both sides of the argument. By putting the opposing arguments first you develop a strong opinion without putting your own biases in it. How much do you think minimum wage should be increased to? Maybe look at this website to show more of the downsides and advantages of raising the minimum wage. https://minimum-wage.procon.org/
When choosing a college that is right for students many people look at academics, location, programs, and size. However, for most seniors looking at colleges, the main concern is how much will it cost and how
Wow, fascinating that the cost of college is rising as fewer people are attending thus preventing even more people from attending due to costs–this is a cycle our nation should be trying to avoid because a less educated society would be disastrous in the long term. I fail to understand why our government over the decades has not allowed more money for public education, be it at the elementary or university level. Like protecting our natural resources, education is a worthwhile investment.
Hi Kaitlyn, I enjoyed reading your post. I found it surprising how much the price of college has increased. This post really hit home seeing as though I’ll be attending college in the next few years. Hopefully, one day college will be more affordable and more widely available for people.
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.
