Kavi, this is a great topic to expand more on. In my personal experience with the issue, I have had to debate both sides in detail in different classes. I agree with the side that there should be gun control, and my reasoning is because there is a lot of accidental injuries and killings of innocent lives, and many suicides that could have been…[Read more]
Cami, I enjoyed reading this continuation of research on the topic of Arts in schools. I do think that having the arts is important in school because it helps kids to have a creative outlet. Kids need to be creative, and use creativity in order to grow and thrive. It has been proven that kids learn better in their core classes when being creative…[Read more]
Breyner, I like the statistics and the passion in your article. It is interesting when you said “It talked about that Immigrants represent a large part of the East Oakland population which is 17 percent. Thirty five of the population in the East Oakland have a least one parent immigrant 79 percent of whom are US citizens. Most of the im…[Read more]
Montana, I like the statistics and facts you put into this article. I wish the article was a little bit longer and more detailed. If you expand on this, I would like to know the long-term affects of technology on our body and brain. Also, I would like to hear more about how it affects mental health: can it cause depression? anxiety? any other…[Read more]
Javier, I really like this article because it connects poverty to crime rate, something that most people forget can cause increasing crime rates. “The results showed that seventy-two percent were in poverty and most of the young teens were dropouts and two-thirds were poor.This reveals how poverty and inadequate resources lead to crime”. I have…[Read more]
I am interested in your post because I am always asking myself what love is. I know that you didn’t really go into much detail but it was enough information to want to know more. One thing that stands out to me is “In the Greek language, there are seven different words for seven different types of love:” I think that is interesting because I never knew there were so man different meanings for the word love. What inspired you to want to write about love.
Your post really stood out to me because I believe love is such an important thing in life. Love from family, love from friends, love from a partner, but most importantly love for yourself. I was fascinated by the fact that you brought up the different types of love and how the brain connects to love and the 3 different parts of the brain that it is broken up into. I agree with the statement that love is a feeling and a choice. Feeling love for someone is something that just happens but pursuing love is a choice. You can separate yourself from someone and remove the love and that is a choice. This article was very eye-catching.
I found your writing intriguing because love even in a chemical reaction is fascinating. Even how it can be more than just simply, a chemical reaction. A way to find someone who feels the same way as you. The feeling of “romantic love” to find a partner. What else stands out to me is how many ways there are to say love in different ways through Greek. That is what most intrigued me.
I was very intrigued by your post because I feel like love is very subjective and is more based on the type of person you are. I can personally relate to the fact that people perceive love differently and I’d ask the same question that you did, and this really interested me and stood out in my opinion was how you ended with the question, “How do you define love?” This question really picks at a persons true emotions and thoughts and really shows how a person could change based on there opinions of you. I’m excited to see what you come up with next.
I found your post to be very interesting because I have always debated with others over If love is real or not. I agree with you that “love is used and abused for the expression of different sets of feelings” I feel as though many people don’t actually know if they love someone or not but they say it anyway because they have lust for that person. I also feel as though after a while that love just fades away into nothing.Overall, I enjoyed reading your post!
I am interested in your post because many people ask what is love. you don’t go to deep in to detail but I see that there is enough information here to want people to want more that will make them want to go out and look for more of what the word means and we all have a different mean of it .
Sophie your post was interesting. It’s weird how you broke love down into more of a science. I myself see love as something with no explanation, we all feel love differently. You can’t explain what you feel but you know it’s there, and I personally disagree with your idea about how love is a choice. You don’t get to choose who you fall for and I have learned that the hard way.
I am satisfied with with your post because you were very clear and specific about what love actually is and how many different ways to love there is. One thing you said that stood out to me was when Sophie said, “Helen Fisher of Rutgers University in the States has proposed 3 stages of love – lust, attraction and attachment..” I think this is very interesting but it can be confusing to other because of what each of these stages of love really mean. Your post reminds me of my life personally because love is very important to me and the way that I love others around me like my friends and family. Thank you for sharing your post.
i am satisfied with your post because you really hit the key points of defining love. you didn’t go into deep detail but, you even gave us information no the brain which was pretty cool. thanks for sharing you post with us
Sophie, I really like the topic that you chose and how you explored the different ways that we approach using the word love or how we feel about that word. I do agree with you that love is a choice and feeling because we do have the choice to love something or not to. This was a nice article.
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.
