You and your group chose to write about an interesting topic, i’m also writing about Police Brutality for my senior project. You should add a couple examples of how many people were abused by the police illegally.
You and your group chose to write about a important topic that is going on right now all over the United States. In fact, my senior project is based on Police Brutality also.

I think this is a great topic to write about because everyone should get the same education as anyone else. I know a couple newcomers that don’t want to come to school no more because it’s hard for them to talk english.

Some reasons why Shakespeare is still studied in schools today is so the students could learn how English was used back then. They also studding it because english use to be more harder than english right now.

Othello: Nor scar that whiter skin of hers than snow and smooth as monumental alabaster. Yet she must die, else she’ll betray more men. Put out the light, and then put out the light. If I quench thee, thou f

I am unsure with your post, “Oakland: Drugs,” because Cannabis is medication for sick patients, cannabis doesn’t affect people in a bad way. Cannabis is actually better than prescribed pills because pills have a lot of ingredients and cannabis is natural.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “The story shows how marij…[Read more]

I am mesmerized by your letter “Drugs vs Teens” because when I read your letter it made me think about my friend that I use to go to school with. When I read your story I visualized myself being my friend because he skipped and missed days at school just to smoke marijuana with his parents money while they’re at work. Marijuana is pow…[Read more]
Dear Jeremiah khem,
I am thrilled by your post “The Procedure On Gun Control” because I agree with your talking about on they should make background checks on when buying a gun. I also agree on that on making it harder to buy a gun, so the wrong person won’t buy one. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “This law of selling guns…[Read more]
Dear Daisy Ramirez
I am amazed by your post “Minimum wage needs improvement” because I like how you gave a good detail on how why you need the minimum wage to improve. I also like when you said people come to America for a better life. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is ” The American Dream is according to Google definition, “the i…[Read more]
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.
