Abortion is a very controversial topic that divides many people calling themselves either pro-choice (supporting the woman) or pro-life (supporting the baby). Abortion has been a long running issue but I find that
This is a great infographic. I think the message here is really powerful, especially considering our current administration and the defunding of planned parenthood. I love the use of graphics and statistics, which compress the information into easier to understand items.
I chose this website because it was able to break down the pros and cons to those who were pro-choice and pro-life. I thought this website was interesting because in the end those who fight for pro-choice and
Hello Surako, Cloning is a great topic to go deeper on in Genetic Engineering! The fact that science continues to grow and grow, what are the possibilities that we might be able to clone one day?

Hello Ahmir, I am very pleased to see you have chosen cloning as your Genetic Engineering application since cloning is very interesting and I also wonder how far we as the human race can go far to as clone another living organism.

On my understanding of Genetic Engineering, it is the action of modifying the genes of living organisms in order to form a new and better result. Scientists can alter the genes in the DNA by changing the g
Nuong, Many people debate and dwindle on the topic of abortion. I don’t support it in anyway, but I do believe that women have the right to choose what happens to their body. I am not saying that abortion is a good thing, because taking the life of a baby is not right, but what I am trying to express is that if a woman feels that aborting the child is what she needs to do then she deserves to do what she feels is best.
Nuong, I agree with some of the things you have written in this paragraph.It it true that women should be able to what’s happening to their bodies.But some people have different views it’s good that you have this platform to express your opinion. Alexandria.
Nuong, I very much agree with the subject of your argument, and I hope to eventually read more about what you feel on the subject. I think it would be fruitful as well to go into some statistics and facts about life as it forms, consciousness, and the importance of the health of the mother. You may even touch on the dislike for Planned Parenthood throughout America, as this is such a hot topic these days. I suggest looking at their website (https://www.plannedparenthood.org) to see what their aim is in the organization, and how they treat and follow up with their patients. It would be a bit of a tangent, but I think it would be worth mentioning the fact that Planned Parenthood isn’t just an abortion clinic, but also a place to find regular medical checkups, examinations, and even mammograms for those who may not perhaps be able to afford them elsewhere.
Nuong, I also agree that women should be able to do what they feel is right with their bodies whether that means abortion or other decisions. I think it is really awesome that you were willing write about such a big topic. Many people have very strong views towards this topic and your choice to express your opinion is very inspirational. I found your topic very interesting, thank you.
My 30-second hook was about the Blue Wall of Silence, an unwritten rule among police culture where they would never rat out each other out. I had to practice a couple times in front of my friend before I could n

Shakespeare is still studied in schools because it’s where the beginning of new word development and creation began. Shakespeare himself have created many of the words we used today to describe many things. He had
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.
