I agree too that way Japan is doing school lunches could definitely help with the issue of school lunches in America. This is the way to go in american schools because most kids are unaware of the effects certain foods have on their bodies. I think that with nutritional education and healthier lunch it could definitely benefit the lives…[Read more]

Hi Jordan, I agree that Mark Twain was not racist he was just trying to give context to the time and how african americans were addressed. Twain allowed his readers be exposed to the real reality of how African Americans were treated. I think that it is better to show the audience the truth instead of just hiding the real facts. Do you think it…[Read more]
Hi Mary, This is a great I definitely think that Huck has grown from the beginning of the book and he has learned through his journey what wrong and right is.

Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is a great example of a book who uses dialect to show differences between language in different time periods and regions. The dialect in the novel allows readers to be pulled in deep
I totally agree that college should be free because education is how the world operates in oder to do jobs. It is hard to pay for college because the costs are extremely outrageous and should be something that should addressed all over the world. If college costs are reduced or eliminated the world will start to become disorganized…[Read more]

Hi Cole, This is a great essay. I agree that family is one of the most important things in life because they help you through everything. The sacrifice that families make for each other is not countable but it makes a great impact on our lives and our futures.
I agree throughout the book so far Huck has been experiencing loneliness. Just like in Chapter eight where he was sitting around the campfire he realized that he was very lonely and wanted to try to do something about it.
I agree the Grangerford’s are good people but they are living a very messed up life.They are in this feud which has no reason what so ever but they are very good people to Huck. I think that this topic should really be looked at because the Grangerford’s have two different sides to them a very nice side and an evil side.
In The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn one of the main characters Huck is going through one of the most tough journeys in his life he is trying to escape slavery. In a excerpt from the book he he is experiencing
Discovery has been a very influential part of my life. Discovery is the process in which you are able to see something new or obtain knowledge for the first time and can influence every part of your life. For
I too am a big fan of discovery, and it saddens me that I don’t have much time to do it I love traveling, and wandering in the places I travel to. I don’t ever feel that I need a tour guide, because I love to just walk and wander, discovering new places along the way. Part of my love of dis cover is my lover for climbing, and all the new experiences it can bring. I also feel that discovery is what has fueled human growth, as we are ever hungry for more and that pushes us to the limits of what we can accomplish. Thank you for your work, as it truly made it think about what discovery really pushes us to.
I very much enjoyed our piece on discovery. This is a very well thought out piece that made me ponder on some of the comments you brought up. I too would like to travel the world someday. This piece was very spot on because someones choices and decisions they make through out life effect who they grow up to be and they do this through discovery of themselves and people around them.

I think that friendship is a very important word in many peoples lives because friends are people who are there for you through everything. Having friends are extremely important to me but friends are not always forever.

In our lives as an American we all have the right to an education. I think that we all should also be able to attend higher education at a lower expense. I believe this because many colleges have started to raise
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.
