I am now in my junior year and I now noticed that it is much easier to get stuff done earlier. For me, it was not worth staying up to 12 or 1pm…[Read more]
Dear Reilly, I am interested in your essay because I noticed that America doesn’t promote taking care of the environment as much as other countries. I personally care about the environment, but I wasn’t really taught that much on how to take care of it.

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.
