I’ve been reading a book named Lost Bullet. Lost Bullet is about a 16 year old named Luke Harding and it takes place in the future. Luke and his sidekick robot Malc help investigate the death of a Doctor. The bullet had hit her in the head. Now it’s even harder to find out who killed her because it was raining that night and so the bullet and […] View
Dear Jada, I agree with you that many people are scared of the police not just because they think they might get arrested but because sometimes some of the cop’s could get a little aggressive and start hurting someone. I don’t think it’s fair that many people get hurt by the police just because of their race or anything else. In my opinion I think…[Read more]
Dear Athsia, I agree with you that many kids skip school. I believe that adults should try finding new ways to make students go to school. I think many kids might not go to school because they might have to go to work. They might not want to learn or they might just not care about education. I believe they should get the education that they need…[Read more]
Dear Cole, I agree with you that family is really important. Family is important because without them we wouldn’t have clothes or food. They work really hard just to take care of us. They also work a lot to get money so that they could get us food and important things that we need. I agree with you that many parents end up losing a lot of money a…[Read more]
Dear Ethan, I agree with you that cell phones can be a huge distraction. I can relate to this because I use my phone a lot and it ends up being a huge distraction because most of the day I’m on my phone and not outside doing something else. I agree with you that cell phones distract us from learning more and going outside. But, then you do learn…[Read more]
Dear Mae, I did not think that animal cruelty was this bad. I’m glad you shared all this information because we need to stop killing and abusing animals. I think it is really cruel to be doing this to so many different kinds of animals. But I think some people would need to kill some animals because they might benefit from getting food or to m…[Read more]
Hi Kevin, This book sounds really interesting. I like books that are so intense it is hard to put them down. I too get paranoid that someone is following behind me. Everytime I go to my car at night I run to it and jump into my car because I am scared someone could also be under my car. I also run up stairs from my basement and never stay down there alone, as I am scared someone is down their following right behind me.
I too get paranoid when I’m alone at the house or walking outside at night. When I’m in these situations I try to take my mind off of it by thinking about the things that make me feel happy and comfortable.
Dear Giselle, This was very interesting because I did not know that much information about that. I’m glad you made this because not many people think about this. I did not know that the male and female would have been treated the same. Also, that they would be treated different than other prisoners. Then they start to feel lonely and they get s…[Read more]
In my opinion, I think that they chose the right decision to not go to school or work because they are fighting so that Immigrants don’t get deported. But, then I also don’t feel that one day of not going to sch
Dear Kevin, I agree that all the people that didn’t go to school or work made the right decision. This boycott showed many people that immigrants and their children are needed. Even if it was only for a day some people may have realized that if all the immigrants/latinos/hispanics did not go to school, shop at stores, eat at restaurants, go to work for more longer everything in the US would just go down the drain. Even if some people are blinded by all their racist thoughts they will eventually realize that they need us to survive. As a student who participated in this boycott, I felt like i helped my community by not going to school or buying things from stores. More than half of my school didn’t attend because they want to show Trump that he is making a big mistake. I will be looking forward to what you post next. Thank you for your post.
Dear Hugo, I agree with you that animals have rights just like us. I think that animals have rights just like us because they are alive and deserve to be treated with care. Like how you said in your article that animals could be abused and locked in cages and that it isn’t fair for them and they need to be treated with care and protected. In my l…[Read more]
Dear Hector, I agree that taking any kind of drugs can affect you. It can kill you and you could get really hurt for being on drugs. But some things I disagreed on because some drugs help people. Some people need drugs to take care of their bodies. But some people might not be using the drugs correctly and they would end up dieing. I also liked…[Read more]
Dear Zahra, The books you showed were really great. I have only read some of the Harry Potter books. But the collection of books looks really interesting. I think I’m going to be reading more of these books. I read the Harry Potter books and they are really long and I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it is really…[Read more]
Dear Kevin, I decided to search “Harry Potter” because well, I’m a HUGE HP fan. I’m really glad you decided to write about this absolutely AMAZING book! There are going to be many surprises, that you just won’t believe. I really like the books because they’re full of exciting adventures and… I just love fantasy books. My favorite book is The Deathly Hallows. I think you’ll like it a lot as well. And you better get some tissues ready when you get to the last couple books. Anyways, I hope to see you post more about Harry Potter! I’ll definitely read your reviews about the boy who lived. 😀
Dear Writer, I agree that to stay healthy you should exercise and eat healthy. If you Exercise and Eat junk food then you wouldn’t be getting healthier. So I think you were right that to eat healthy without exercising would make you lose weight and if you exercise then you would probably be more healthier. I sometimes try to eat healthy and I try…[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.
