What is posted online can reduce others’ confidence and self-esteem. It may also result in suicides. What students post online can affect people dramatically even if those were not the intentions. We just never
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “I hope that in the future we get to do what we want with ourselves and our bodies without being judged or told we are horrible people because what we choose to do”. I think this is important because it is the sad truth. Although it is our body women always get brought down for doing…[Read more]
I agree with you I think a day without immigrants really showed that without all of these immigrants we have many things would go out of business and if they are forced to move back to where they were born a lot of things can and will most likely go wrong. Immigrants are a part of this world that make it better. They have to stand…[Read more]
I totally agree with you that immigrants should get a chance to have a better life. People that want to go to college should be able to go with the help that they need. You also see latinos everywhere working hard for their families to have a better live so they should have a right to be able to work without getting told something…[Read more]
I am really interested in the book you are currently reading. I and intrigued on how they have a special gift and how the main character’s grace is to kill. I would want to know what happens next with her uncle that is trying to make her kill.
I think that a book written from the perspective of a ghost would be very interesting. I wonder if he is able to interact with the people who are alive and if he can convey messages to them. The thought of an afterlife is one that has been on my mind for a long time and I think an interesting book like this would be able to open my mind to it more than before.
I definitely agree with you I think that beauty is not how you look but how happy you feel about yourself. Girls everywhere are taught that you have to look a certain way to be beautiful and they are
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.
