Hey, Oliver. I stumbled across your post and was compelled to read it by the title. I really like what you wrote and if your title was set in place seriously, I encourage you to keep working until you are more confident in your work. I would love to hear more about where you are from in the future!
This is an interesting topic. I understand your point that schools should intervene in harmful online activity in order to provide a safer environment for their students. I do have a couple questions though. How would schools know when they need to intervene? How would cyberbullying between people in different schools or even in different states…[Read more]
The device you are using to read this most likely has a camera. You may have it covered with a sticky note, but that does not ensure you are not being monitored. Advancements in camera, audio recording, and data
I agree that it is important to step out of your comfort zone, but I think there is a limit. If you have a healthy, active lifestyle, would you decide to eat nothing but cake for a week and stay in bed just because it is something different? I believe that if a situation presents itself and is not obviously dangerous or detrimental, it is…[Read more]
I am not super familiar with cars, but this is a beautiful one. Do you know how long these Italian materials are expected to last? I would like to see more information on the maintenance on the car because if it begins to fall apart after 10 years or 10,000 miles it will lose some value even though it is an amazing car. Do you think these…[Read more]
It is interesting to hear how much better our air is based on statistics that you mentioned. Do you think that the management of burning is sufficient or do you think we should start looking more seriously at alternative methods? I would love to hear more of your ideas on this question.
As I enter my college years, I am going to be impacted by student debt. I read and annotated three different sources discussing student debt which has reached $1.53 trillion. The people paying this debt are
This is a great post. I have thought about this topic a lot lately with the popularity of Fortnite expanding significantly. My little brother plays it every day for extended periods of time. I agree that these games could not change a person’s whole behavior, but that it can impact it. I would be interested in learning about the different impacts…[Read more]
This is an interesting topic, Johnny. I think that having protective measures such as TSA and people to research hurricanes are good, but I would rather see regulations on who can own guns and physical building security for schools. What is your opinion on having clear backpacks, metal detectors, and police in schools? In the future I would love…[Read more]
Hey, Anika. This is a really interesting topic. I didn’t know that parents were complaining of student’s attire being distracting or that companies had a dress code to avoid distracting coworkers. I always just thought it was a part of looking professional in front of clients. Do you think that uniforms in the work place and and at school are a…[Read more]
Hey, Mario. I am very interested in this topic and just wanted to ask a question about a statement you made. If the person was stressed when they died would it be detrimental to the data? Would someone who is accidentally submerged into freezing water going to panic as well? I would be very interested in seeing more information from you on this…[Read more]
Lately, drinking milk has been an increasingly popular conversation topic. People are arguing that milk is actually harmful for humans. Some people argue that the benefits of milk are not worth the costs. Milk
Olivia, I like how you used both sides of the argument to address the controversy over milk. However, the cons of drinking milk stood out more to me, because it surprised me how many risks there are when it comes to the production of milk which people tend to usually avoid talking about. I will definitely think more consciously next time I drink milk, and decide whether the benefits are greater than the costs or vice versa.
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.
