Over the years society has changed drastically. Each generation remembers the world differently than the last. Even Though I believe that in many ways society has changed for the better, I believe that as a whole
I really like this article! It helps bring some light to a problem that many people don’t see and I think that society should work together to give these kids a better place to grow up in so they have what they need to grow.
I love how deep photography can get and how many underlining messages there are in each photo, so I find this really interesting on how he used such minor changes in his pictures to make a bolder statement.
I definitely do agree with you on how it is questionable on how healthy fast food restaurants are really becoming but hopefully in the future a wider variety of actually healthy options will be available.
I thought this was really cool. I have read multiple studies on how helpful meditating can be, and I’ve always found it so interesting how putting a small window of time away to meditate can affect so much.
I thought this was really interesting and I appreciated how both sides of the story were considered. I definitely agree that this is a very controversial topic and should be discussed more within society.
I have always had a strong sense of self. I never had a lot of friends but, regardless I was always happy. One big thing that I always struggled with was conflict. I hated arguments. I could never get the
I feel a sense of nostalgia when I read your work, “One word after another,” because even though I was never placed in a situation like the one you described in the second paragraph, I never can really get across the words I really want to say. This often made me feel like no one, not even people I’m close to, can understand what I’m thinking, which is the feeling I felt while reading this.
I really enjoyed the energy in this piece because the anecdotal part was really jey to building the paper. I think that you are doing just fine figuring out what to say because this is really well constructed
I am happy about your post, “One word after another” because you overcomed your inability to talk in times of conflict. You eventually commuincated really well during hard times. One sentence that stands out of me is “it wasn’t easy, and it still isn’t but each day the words become a little easier to say.” This stood out for me because it reminds me how we constantly have to to adapt to acheive our goals. Another sentence that I liked was “I hated arguments”. This stood out because it shows how much you hate disagreeing with other people. Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time when my brother argued with me I struggled to get phrase my point in words and got mad. Thanks for your writing. I look foward to see what you right next because it really showed me how much you have to adapt in life to be happy.
I am inspired by your post,”One word after another” because I, too, have trouble getting points across. It makes me frustrated, too, that I cannot converse like everyone else.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This caused me many issues throughout my life, because you always have to talk to people and they won’t always understand like how someone who is close to you might.” I think this is important because it is true that some who do not know you well may make fun of you for something they think strange that a close family member would understand. It is easier to talk with those close to you.
Another sentence that I like is “Now I had to become the voice for all of us, for the sanity of all of us, because I wasn’t gonna let us be left in the dust.” This stood out for me because it must have taken so much courage to step up to fix your problem, and it is inspiring to me.
Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I had to present my science project in front of the class and I nervously stuttered and freaked out so that the teacher ha to remind me of the prompts. It was embarrasing, and I resent it.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next- you are a very good writer and thorough storyteller.
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.
