Often times people wonder what they eat daly? If it was produced in the proper manner as in if it is organic. But some people do not know that the majority of the food they buy are genetically modified. Genetic
I agree that people are not aware of what they are eating and some of the foods that they eat have been tested on animals and caused abnormal reactions and people eat these things still without knowing some of the effects.

Often times people do not realize that they are sometimes hurting others. When it comes to gay rights lots of people do not show much interests perhaps because of religion or personal morality. I stand for LGBT
I have relatives as well that are part of the LGBT community and they feel like they have a disadvantage in society because everyone looks at them in a different way. People that are gay, lesbian, or transgender do not deserve any other type of treatment besides the treatment everyone else deserves. They are citizens of the US so why are they treated unfairly? This makes no sense. Me myself not being gay probably has a different perspective than people that are. But all I can say is that I think everyone needs to be treated fair.
Hello everybody, My name is Ruby Hernandez and my research project is about Violence Against Women in Ciudad Juarez. In this audio I am briefly explaining the type of violence I am majorly focusing on and
That is a very strong way to start writing about a clear issue on what it is that is happening. Although, I really like how you mention that people are ” close minded” because if you would of used ” ignorant” it would sound like an insult. I can feel your passion and your determination of having ethnic studies and I totally agree with it. In fact,…[Read more]
I am impressed by the many ideas, solutions and reasons you gave on this issue. Your letter sounds persuasive but it will be much stronger if you give a personal experience, someone you know. Other than that having mentors who can make workshops on how to deal with stress or talk about how they feel sounds like a really good exercise. Although,…[Read more]
I really like how you identified what a newcomer is and the problem that is alarming them. But you could have said that newcomers should also bond with students that are bilingual, that way our community could be more stronger and stand up for those who are bullies. Just saying…
Awesome! I believe that this solution will have lots of good benefits for all schools and districts. Your image sends a strong message about social media being the reason why teenagers consider suicide as the only alternative.
Hello everybody! I’m Lizet Hernandez and I am uploading three videos of me saying a phrase with different tones, for my English class. When I was recording myself I felt a bit insecure because I don’t like the way
The names of the videos that I watched was Ted’s secret to great public speaking and Good and Bad examples of Presentation. Anderson wanted viewers to understand that when giving a good presentation is und
The words that I decided to use was Citadel, thou, hither. The word Citadel comes from the 15th century which means “fortress commanding a city” To be honest it is pretty old, I have never heard this word in any
My name is Lizet Hernandez and I am currently reading Othello. To begin with I pick Act 1 scene 3 lines 194-203 when Desdemona told Brabantio her love for Othello and like her mom showed her father that s
I think the reason why Shakespeare is still studied in school is because Shakespeare is a great example of an excellent dramatic poet. His famous quotes for example ” I am not, what I am” is so famous b
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
