The environment is a very important thing in our society at least we say it is but, do we really mean it. Our society performs many things that harm the environment like driving a car or not recycling. The biggest
Suzie I love your topic because I think it is a very under appreciated topic. I think its interesting that you are doing this topic because I was looking at an article about how more women are being recruited into the science and math workforce which is a highly populated job for men. keep up the good work with your research.
In today’s world milk and dairy products are one of the main products that contain calcium that help build strong bones and prevent osteoporosis. calcium is good for your bones but, in small amounts. Research
I think this is a great topic. It is a great topic to research and will catch the readers attention when you finish with the final product. I wan to know what further research you are doing about this topic and why you chose the topic.
Meat is a main staple in many American’s diets today. An average American eats up to 200 lbs of meat per year. The question is ” is it good or bad for your health to eat meat?” Meat specifically red meat is known
I couldn’t agree more. Industrial meat farming is truly a terrible thing. They are pumping out massive amounts of nasty meat that Americans blindly devouring and it’s wrecking the environment at the same time. I think the book Eating Animals by Jonathan Foer would really help you out with your research. It talks about the tole industrial farming takes on the earth, the process of raising and preparing the meat, and especially the horrible conditions the animals are living in and their gruesome slaughter. If you ever want to take a look at it let me know because I’ve got it checked out from the library right now.
Samantha, What you have to say is an important issue that we as a society needs to address before it gets taken out of hand, which it seems like it is already to that point. My favorite point that you made would have to be how much water we are using into slaughtering animals– it is ridiculous and we need to come up with an alternative. Something that I learned that I never knew about is that they mix different cows into a hamburger.
Thank you very much for educating me! Can’t wait to hear what else you come up with!
I enjoyed reading your post because it is something you don’t see everyday as a discussion topic. It caught my attention because I have never even heard of trigger warnings before I read your post. I like how you gave specific examples about how a trigger warning on a post could help people avoid being triggered. It also made me think about how…[Read more]
I completely agree with you in that we as a country, need to take measures to help preserve the water resources in India. We need to come up with solutions to assist people in the rural areas of India. The question is how, when, who, and with what resources?
Well done. I agree with you that we as a country, society, and world, need to support one another. Your research about India is good, and we should try to start there, but I am sure there are other places that are in need too. With the world’s ever growing population, we need to provide for the future generations. Good job!
Dear Samantha, I agree with you that we have to help India. There is many other places not just rural parts of India that only have access to contaminated water. The country of India should help its inhabitants to have a source of clean water. In my opinion I feel like governments and presidents of different parts of the world should help India as well as other places. As a nation we should help me each other not be greedy because we have clean water that other people don’t have. We as people need to do the best to help each other. I enjoyed your post it was really informative and interesting.
This is topic. I can definitely see the changes being made to the basketball world today. As a basketball player I like to ply the more traditional game of basketball where you score from anywhere because thats the point of the game: to score. I like the idea the new research is bringing in but it also has its faults. What if your team or best…[Read more]
I think you state some valid points but I would have to disagree with you. I think wearing a uniform does decrease bullying because you are all wearing the same thing so there is nothing to make fun of, but your choice of shoes and hairstyle could cause problems. overall I like wearing my uniform to school because I don’t have to pick an outfit in…[Read more]
I agree that these two issues are some of the things we should focus on. I like the idea about helping the homeless with money, but it could be hard to just collect money and distribute it. This could also cause problems with the poor who don’t think they are getting a fair amount. I think it would be more beneficial to help the homeless find a…[Read more]
I agree with you and I believe one of the two candidates will do great things to end poverty by helping the middle class and being able to support the economy. They will also help create new jobs so we can build a better economy and help the lives of people in America.
I agree with you. I think focusing on improving our environment before anything else. If we improve the environment we will be living in a better society and will have the ability to fix the other things that need to be fixed in our society.
I definitely believe that this problem of discrimination of the LGBT community needs to be fixed. I think all people are equal and I hope that is the mindset that the future president takes into office and fixes this problem once and for all.
This topic is a very big issue in our society today and I agree with you that something needs to be done about this disease. I disagree about the fact about reducing pollution and eating safer foods. These things will not lead to the curing of the disease because most cancer is genetic so the only way that genetic cancer can be cured is through science.
Gun control has become a big issue in our country. The United States has the largest amount of guns per capita in the world. Firearms are classified in three different categories: handguns, shotguns, and rifles.
I agree with your question. People think if they do something that stands out and represents the black lives matter movement that it will change what is happening. They don’t realize that it only makes it worse because everyone has their own opinion on the matter and everyone processes what these people are doing differently.
There are many ways that we can save the earth from global warming. Some of the most basic ways you can help reduce global warming are going solar, using less electricity, and using clean fuel. These things reduce
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.
