I am shocked with your post, “Taking a Position on GMOs”, because before reading this letter I thought GMOs were safe. I had read many positive things about GMOs, like, it’s easier and cheaper to make more food for growing population than to plant a lot more crops. Also, I had heard that they were safe but I guess it was an article or it was a person that was agreeing with GMOs because they did not write down the negative affects about them. After reading your post I feel like I wouldn’t be able to eat a genetically modified organism like, food.
In an article called “GMO Facts”. GMO stands for genetically modified organisms, which means that they use genetic makeup using specific DNA from plants and animals They would cut out the parts that they wanted,
My topic for my 30 second hook is Gentrification in the Mission District. I was trying to present the decrease in Latino living in the Mission District and how fast they have been leaving. I kept messing up when I
The application I chose to do for genetic engineering is genetically modified foods (GMOs). I chose this topic because I was always interested in how people were able to improve food into making them look pretty,
I was able to watch a video called “What is Genetic Engineering”, and the general idea I got from the video is that they would take a genetically engineered organism and fuse it with the modified DNA and hav
I feel like the example given on the video is a very simple yet complex, but the way you simplified it even more and made it seem like an easy topic just scopes the genetic engineering more and allows more understanding.
I was a little confused when you said “To address this issue, we think that police should have to go through therapy before being able to join the police force to make sure they are both mentally and emotionally fit.” What do you mean by this? Do you suggest all policemen should go into therapy? I think this would work if people who worked in the…[Read more]
I would fix the link you have, since you can’t click on it. I was able to look at the piktochart, and the evidence provided was a good start, but you should also give the reader the article title to those facts you have on there. The thesis in the beginning could be rewritten, so that it gives the reader a sense of what’s going on about racial…[Read more]
Your evidence and facts are really good when it talks about your topic for nuclear weapons. I couldn’t really find a thesis to this, so it was kind of confusing for me to understand. I would suggest piecing what you got from your evidence and solutions into making a thesis. You should also broaden your solution, like giving a number to show how…[Read more]

Shakespeare is still shown and learned throughout schools because its language could help open up minds. When you think about Shakespeare’s words and their meanings behind them, you could connect words through h
What about the possible consequences of raising minimum wage? Increasing the minimum wage could also cause things to become more expensive because companies will need to fill the void of the money they lose when paying higher wages. Companies that are smaller and don’t have the funds to pay employees at higher rates could go out of business which would lead to job loss and the problem of people not being able to sustain themselves is worsened instead of fixed.
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.
