Within the world of intelligence, including in America, there is by no means an escape from corruption and deceit to this day. During the Watergate scandal, there was proof of evidence that the CIA was linked with
The media, especially movies, can be very misleading when portraying the life of a spy and the intelligence community as a whole. A very significant example of this would obviously be seen in almost every James
This topic is really cool as it is and definitely has room to expand a little further and make it that much better… also, I think you should do some stuff with the Crusades and Templar’s and stuff, because those were some wild times for the church.
Hey, sweet stuff you got here, definitely a lot more interesting and epic than most of the research papers out there… literally. I’ve never even heard of this crazy fire ceremony stuff, but learning about it makes me really glad that I wasn’t born at this time in an area ruled by the Aztecs, because they’re psycho and I don’t think I would have…[Read more]
You raise a lot of good questions here and bring up some good points. Personally, as far as Marvel goes, my favorite superhero is Iron Man… mainly because of Tony Stark’s billionaire lifestyle. This is going to be a really interesting paper to read about how Marvel gained these successes and became a dominant force in the world of comics and…[Read more]
This could be a really good research paper for almost anyone to read, as it shows the importance of something as small and trivial as stretching and just how helpful it can be to the body. I know from experience the poor outcomes that result in not stretching as I have had my fair share of torn and pulled muscles. After my experiences and reading…[Read more]
The world of spying and intelligence began during the Revolutionary War when George Washington believed that clandestine operations were needed to win the war for independence. This fund they started created a
This is a very interesting topic to pick. I always thought that it would be incredible to be a spy. I didn’t know that there was so much behind what I would define a spy as. It was interesting to read that propaganda was a method of spying and that it all began with Benjamin Tallmadge and George Washington.
As Christmas, along with many other holidays, are just around the corner, I continuously think how I can make this year better than last, but to be honest, at this point in my life, I find myself not wanting the
Hey Ryan, first of all great post. I completely agree with you on your idea of a “perfect christmas”. At this point of my life there really isn’t any type of gift that i’m dying to get that would make this christmas really special. Instead, as you said, i’m mainly looking for a break from everything. All I really want to do this christmas is spend time with friends and family, in my eyes thats what would make it perfect.
I really like this post in that it fits the season and puts me in the Christmas mood, but I can’t help but notice one thing. Today is a Monday, and most high schoolers go to school on Monday, so I wonder why it is that you would be at home listening to Christmas music while your parents are baking cookies… interesting.
I think you raise a very important question, one that is continuously asked in all of politics today. Although I think that our government doesn’t need to be spending money on things we don’t necessarily need, I am for the continuance of the NASA program. The reason for this is that I am just a big nerd when it comes to space and I hope that we…[Read more]
I think it’s really cool how deep of an interest you took in something that can be so important to others. All of the important and significant facts that you had were all very educational and I’m glad you got them from a reliable source so that I can count on them. Besides that I like how you included a little bit of history in the development of…[Read more]
Your poem really made me hungry and made me have a pretty intense sweet tooth. You really captured the physical materials of rice pudding and put it into words. The way you utilized imagery and other descriptive words really made it seem like the rice pudding was right in front of me. Not only that but you utilized the history of rice pudding,…[Read more]
This was a very deep piece of work and I strongly admire that, because I don’t think I would be able to write anything of this caliber. Also, I think that you really captured the essence of the power and size that space has; and also the effects it can have in a person’s mind. The way it can seem almost endless, yet it is also right in front of…[Read more]
First off, well done using the videos, it made your post so much more interesting and engaging. With that, it is really cool to hear actual people and see what they actually do on a day to day basis. But I do think we need to place a much higher educational value in the lives of people not just in Sierra Leone, but all over the world, these girls…[Read more]
I think this post is very important for some people to see. This is because homeless people continuously are criticized for being lazy and not getting a job, but we don’t know the struggles that they face. They could have a situation in their lives that prevents them from finding employment and no one to help out with it. That is why we should…[Read more]
I really like the example you used to portray the meaning of grit, it really shows what the word is truly about and how it is distinguished from other words like bravery an courage. Although, while they’re are differences, you seemed to identify the positives, while they’re may be some negatives too.
Ever since September 11, 2001, the United States began using drones, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, to kill terrorists or suspected terrorists in many Middle Eastern and African countries, primarily Pakistan, Yemen,
This article really caught my attention. The reason being is that, although I don’t play college football… Yet😉. I am currently in my senior year of high school football. I am on the smaller side though, and I have had my fair share of injuries, and I totally understand how intense the game can be. Many of my teammates have also had some severe…[Read more]
You bring up very important points for the future of our most significant resources. I completely agree with the first point you brought up that we’ll be running low on our fossil fuels and that we likely can’t solely depend on our other sources of energy, as those may also run out. It’s very interesting to see that there are other very…[Read more]
Andreas, I completely agree with your opinion on this terrible matter. Animals must be treated the same way as us humans and anything less is just unacceptable. I love that you included the facts because it
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.
