Hi Lupita, I thought your piece was very well written but I would have to disagree with you. One point is that making something illegal or “banning” it doesn’t make it disappear all together. For example several drugs are illegal to obtain but people still get them. How? The black market. If guns were to be banned people would still be able to…[Read more]
in a game of clash royale yesterday,I summoned a minion horde to my opponents dismayand now I feel this game is too easy child’s playwith the might of all my attacks his tower started to swayand it looks l
I am Intrigued by how interesting you made a game sound your poem, “A quick match,” because You explained what was happening during this game, and not only did you make it interesting you made it have rhythm.
One line that stands out for me is, “and now i feel this game is too easy child’s play” I think this line is interesting because once you see that the enemy is taking damage you think it’s going to be a easy match but once you see that the enemy counter attacks you get startled and then realize you need help .
Another line that stands out for me is, “and an enemy pekka is coming this way and now i need help may-day” I think these lines is contradiction because you state on your title that it will be a quick match, so you start off stating that it is indeed going to be quick and easy but then it turns out that you are getting out played, and then turn out to lose.
Your poem reminds me of a poem that I once read. I once read a poem that seemed to be about mushrooms, but come to find out it had a deeper meaning behind it and the author sylvia plath kept contradicting herself by saying we are meek, but then saying No one stops us
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. Make it interesting again.
I disagree with this point of view. I believe that being unhappy with current circumstances is not a problem, in fact I think it is a solution. I think that being unsatisfied is part of human nature. Being unsatisfied is a driving force for innovation and improvement. Think about an athlete who competes in the Olympics. The athlete wishes they are…[Read more]
I Agree with this article and I believe that President Donald Trump is making a more perfect union. Since he is following through with the goals that he promised to do as a president I think he is using his executive power in a good way.
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.
