Dear Ramatoulaye, I am intrigued by your post. You made the argument that “should we have bake sales”. I personally agree your statement because I love food too, and it is good for fundraising. Schools is a place for learning but we still need to have fun. If we have bake sales at school, students will enjoy being at schools. Your suggestion that “next time you see a bake sale, ask yourself: Is it the best choice?” is helpful for students and since school offer PE classes, students will be healthy.
I really agree with your idea because I personally love animals and I think it really is cruel to abuse or lock up the animals. I think that we should respect them, they are part of our society too. 🙂 😉
What you are saying is really powerful. I like how you state what you feel. I think that what you are doing can be called speaking up for people, in this case animals, who cant talk. You are taking a stand for what you believe. I really liked your post. Very interesting.
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.
