I really liked your topic about DACA citizens and how they are being affected by 45. People should not be going through this with fear and should be able to live their lives like any US citizen. I really like how you stated ways that your going to organize movements to support DACA and make them feel safe.
This topic had caught my eye and I truly feel sorry for those in foster care and have to got through things that a child shouldn’t be. Hopefully in the future or even sooner people take this topic on matter of hands and create more mental health services available for children in foster care.
This is a great article and a way to talk about the issue of bullying in schools. I like how the article had included OUSD which is where I apply to and its great that it talks about something I apply to and should be aware of.
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.
