After reading articles about climate change, I think that I can situate most of the information found in my sources into two general categories: addressing the issue from a scientific perspective or from a
I think you do a really good job of providing an in-depth analysis of autonomous cars, and I agree, the safety benefits seem to hint that they are the future of transportation. You mention several of the statistical benefits of autonomous driving, but you also highlight the “anxiety factor.” In your opinion, what steps would have to be…[Read more]
Climate change has become a “hot topic” in the scientific and political community, but it remains a complicated subject that many do not explore fully before formulating an opinion. With news sources that inc
I liked your post, Paul. I agree that climate change is a big issue, but there isn’t enough data or research being conducted to portray the image of climate change. I also concur that there are immense amounts of simplification of such an intricate topic. Climate change may be a broad and complex issue, but to every problem, there is a cause, and most people point to greenhouse gases. I feel that humans aren’t doing enough to fix it.

I respect your choice to analyze such an in-depth and controversial topic and think you do an excellent job of evaluating both sides of the dilemma. I agree with you, that people should have the right to determine their own course of life and how to proceed in cases such as being faced with a terminal, often painful, illness. As…[Read more]

We are constantly surrounded by contact. Thoughts, people, sounds, smells, and emotions all descend toward each other in the culmination of ideas and expressions that make up life. Sometimes, these connections
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.
