Many changes would occur if everybody adopted a vegetarian diet. A vegetarian diet means not eating meat, poultry, or fish Many people choose to be vegetarian for environmental reasons concern for animals, or f
I completely agree with everything you said in this article. It was well written and organized and really addressed the fact that we are doing little to nothing to fix the problems that we are encountering because of the hate that people have towards people they dont know. I agree that we need better leadership and too be examples of…[Read more]
I like your topic alot and think that it is an event that is being overlooked. I was really sad to read about how awful and real this problem is for the civilians in Yemen, and think about how little its considered or even mentioned in mainstream news and media. I think that your personal connection to this topic makes you a perfect…[Read more]
I agree that it is very easy to become a victim of cyber bullying or identity theft if you are not careful about what you do and share online.

I think there is alot of danger in the amount of personal information that people post…[Read more]

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.
