Human cloning… not such a good idea. I’m not completely saying no to it, but I do not feel the need for human cloning. The thought is fascinating and scientists can study cloning but to an extent. We have to
Looking through the article, “How Human Cloning Will Work” by Kevin Bonsor & Cristen Conger provided the diagram above of what is needed to clone a human. First, a donor egg is needed, and nucleus removed in
I painted this acknowledging the prisoners who work on those hard days doing harsh labor. The background yellows and oranges to show the heat, the fence from prison and chains to symbolize that its slavery. I
I’ve seen it on TV, but it’s all in the “future” and science fiction. Human cloning will be my focus. It intrigues me because I know it is being done to animals. I want to know more about it happening (if ever) to
“‘It’s just dressed up slavery’: America’s shadow workforce rises up against prison labor” written by Carimah Townes who is a justice reporter on Think Process has a lot to say in her article. She has also wri
For my third post, I chose an excerpt from ‘Return of the Messiah’ by Huntfrog. It was a small short story and I wanted it to be scary or have a plot twist. It felt easy to convey that tone. I was actually
Two videos that I watched were “TED’s secret to great public speaking” and “Good and Bad Examples of Presentation”. During Anderson’s video he expressed that you must connect to the audience, make them relate
Below this is the log of how I meditated when I was stressed after those situations happened. I do have to say that it helped me. I felt more at peace and less stress on myself it I let the meditation lead me back
Meditation is something I can stick to. Something I need in order for to calm myself. I think I will find it enjoyable because it is simple. I can have my own mantra (repeat a word many times), breath and take it
This is very interesting. I honestly never really thought that meditation worked, or it was something that my mom would do because it was “eastern”. I might have to give that book a read to see what it was all about.
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.
