The problem that we have in our world today is poverty. People are living in poverty everywhere we go today. As community I feel like we should find a way to stop this. This is a big problem in today’s society,
Angela, I really liked reading your poem. This really make me imagine how you look and the lifestyle that you live in. This was an easy read and very catchy with the ” I am’. Keep writing and good luck to you in the future!
Beatrice, don’t let this get to you. It is hard for her understand right ow but at the end of the day she still loves you. Just remember to be happy and to be who you are and that you are accepted. Be confident and don’t let others tell you something that you know that you arent.
Hi Noemi! I agree with the negative mind thinking and I feel that If you think positive then positive things will happen. Confidence is a big key with positivity as well as negativity. If you have confidence then you will most likely succeed. Also, surround you with people that are wishing the best for you.
I liked the way that you outlined this. Where are you from? Also, I understood what you were talking about and it was very interesting. You are a good writer. I know that you only go to school fro your mother, but I would reccommend you to go to school for yourself because there are many opportunities that will help you succeed in life.
While finding Pros and Cons about school uniforms, I have learned that school uniforms may decrease the rate of bullying. Also, school uniforms may help those that can’t afford school uniforms. I have found some p
I think you make some really good points, but personally I don’t care about uniforms anymore. I’ve just gotten used to them at this point. But the advantages of them aren’t just to help everyone look the same or help stop bullying, but it’s nice to have them. Instead of sitting in front of your closest picking out an outfit for 10-20 minutes every morning you can just put on your uniform and only worry about your hair. Its more about the simplicity rather than all the other stuff.
Andre, just keep your head straight and focus on what you want to be in life. You can be whoever you want, you just have to work for it. Keep your head high and avoid all the people that are trying to bring you down.
Joseph, I hope all is well and hope things are getting better. All you can is push through and just succeed. You will always have people wishing for you to fail, but instead of reacting negatively, just block them out and continue to be the person that you want to be.
David I love these questions for many reasons. First I like that these questions make you think outside of the box and it made me think why we say this. When you find more evidence on why we say this in our society, I love to know.
I can see both sides of this argument. I think both of these arguments have good reasoning, uniform is expensive but in some cases it may reduce bullying because it is one less thing people can be bullied for. I can see why you had problems with these articles too because there are many holes in the argument. What is your opinion?
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
