Whalers kill dolphins, whales, porpoises, and other marine mammals. In Japan, they do so in a cruel and shocking way. In one particular place in Japan, they rally dolphins into a cove so they can’t escape. Then
Thomas, I also feel strongly about the racial issues that the NFL players are protesting. However I think it would surprise you that most people actually don’t feel the same way about whether or not taking a knee during the anthem is appropriate. A recent poll showed that, “According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll, 58% of Americans believe that players…[Read more]
Rim, your topic of research is a very big issue in our country today. I likes that you had a lot of sources to back up your thoughts on it. Particularly the research on “What people mean when they say all white people are racist” I think if you included different points of views that combat your research, it could add depth. For example if you say…[Read more]
Dear Ammar, I am sorry to hear that this war is effecting you. To be completely honest, I didn’t even know that there was a war going on there. I really liked reading your article because it brought to light to me some of the outcomes of the war. I didn’t know that the rebels were being backed by ISIS, which is a prominent terror group. I think…[Read more]
Javier, I really like your insights on poverty and crime. I also have wondered if the two are correlated. I did not know that most people know someone who is poor, and I know someone who is poor as well. This really puts into perspective how poverty is more widespread that we think. Living in Utah, maybe I have a different perspective that would…[Read more]
I think a lot about this topic and your article gave me new insight on the issue of climate change. I didn’t know that one in six species is projected to be extinct by the end of the century. This upsets me because I believe that we need to respect mother nature. I hope that our generation can spark change in this issue, or at least slow…[Read more]

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.
