I found this post to be interesting, it really got me thinking on how the internet might influence us and our thinking. We spend so much time on the internet reading articles, and social media and so on. I agree with your last paragraph, it is our responsibility to keep thinking and challenging our brain.
McKenna, I really enjoy your informative article speaking upon the
I am satisfied and in agreement with your informative article because it speaks greatly on the current issue of vaccines and whether or not they are essential to human life. Using scientific reasoning to back up your claim, your statements stood with truth and stability. Purely speaking about the importance of vaccinations would really open your readers’ eyes on the issue and hopefully it would encourage them to vaccinate their child immediately.
One thing you said that stands out for me is: “That is exactly the outcome vaccines are designed to accomplish, to help ensure that people, especially young children who are still developing their immune systems do not contract a life threatening illness. ” I think this is intelligent because it definitely defeats the statement that vaccines enable autism among children.
Your article reminds me of something that happened to me. As I was attempting to reach out to people and support the stabilization in healthcare in America, I believe there was discussion about vaccinations being too costly in America- to the point that it discouraged people to get them. The average cost to fully vaccinate a child with private insurance to the age of 18 to $2,192 from $100, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next!
In the meantime, I’d like to speak about articles in my blog that speak on this issue of vaccinations as well! In my blog, the option of clinics opposed to other conventional healthcare settings are heavily encouraged due to the fact that clinics provide an affordable option to things like STD testing, treatments to common illnesses, and vaccinations! Please go and check it out at http://newyorkclinic.home.blog.
I agree with you that more people should let their kids be vaccinated. I believe that if this happens not only will we meet the Global Coverage target, but it can make a lot of kids healthier again and decrease the chances of others also catching all these disease that can be fatal to them.
As I have began to research I started by looking at broad articles about vaccinations, then I looked at texts from both points of view. I, personally agree with vaccination. I was interested to learn and explore
In the next few weeks I will be writing a research paper for my Expository writing class. For this research essay I will be addressing is why it is better to be vaccinated than not. The topic of vaccination is
McKenna, I am actually really interested in reading your article because this is something that has been interesting to me as well. My mom and I have different opinions on this topic and we argue about whether vaccinations are beneficial or not. Hopefully after reading your piece, I will know more about this topic and both sides of this issue.
This is a great topic to write about! I suggest the CDC, the WHO, and medical journals to do research for your paper. I hope that the research you find will better inform people so they can know if it is safe, and or beneficial to vaccinate. I would also read specially about the increased rates of autism in rich countries, you may be surprised at the real reason the rates are going up. Hope this helps!
This is a very interesting topic. I’ve heard people fight about this in school and in public, so it’s obviously a heated topic. I’d love to see your opinion on the topic and what you find out in your research.
This is a great topic! I am interested to see how you back up your arguments and if there is some connection between vaccines and autism. I myself feel that I need to be more informed about this as I will soon be 18 and have to make my own medical decisions. I would love to see what you find out.
Hi Elizabeth, I found this essay super interesting,and I completely agree with your statements. I think nowadays homework is just assigned because it “should” be, not to benefit us as learners. I learn much better if I am in class and able to go up to the teacher or ask a friend for help in that moment. If I am at home and cannot have access to a…[Read more]
Hi Luke, I found this to be a very interesting essay. It is so sad to see animals treated poorly for the benefit of us, I understand it is vital to helping everyone though as well. Hopefully soon in the future we can find an alternate way to do this.
Just like humans, fish can feel fear, pain, and stress. For many years goldfish have been given out as prizes for winning games at fairs and carnivals. Most people wouldn’t think about what happens to them after t
“A feeling of great pleasure or happiness,” this is joy, there are a number of reasons this is my favorite word. First, because I love the meaning of the word, it reminds me of so many great memories. One of t
Dear McKenna, I really find this post to be interesting because I myself am a really happy and joyful person and it’s amazing learning the story behind the word itself. Something that interested me was when you stated in your post “First, because I love the meaning of the word, it reminds me of so many great memories.” I loved how you shifted the word into a memory and gave an example of it, I just found it to be amazing. I feel like you dragged just a little bit but it was still very good, I love how you made comparisons.
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.
