I am a student at Judge Memorial Catholic High School in Salt Lake City Utah. I thought that your post was very intriguing in that it addressed a topic that is greatly considered in pretty much all religions. I enjoyed reading this, because it brought the questions and ideas into my head on how one’s character is shaped through…[Read more]
I thought this was a very insightful post. Your argument was very structured, and I thought that was very great in articulating your points on why college basketball players should be paid by the NCAA. I don’t think that it’s a good thing at all that all of this talent is still leading people with such a wide potential to eventually…[Read more]
The media is how people keep up with the changing world. There are many parts to the media, and the one that will be discussed is social media, and its effects on this generation. Almost two billion people use any
What an interesting topic you have chosen for your English project. I, personally think that this is a good thing to research. I would definitely study the major causes and effects of going to a charter school versus a public school, and make the comparison. It is data analysis like this that can bring issues to people’s attention. When…[Read more]
I think that your topic is a very interesting one, and your statistics and back story are very moving. I have heard of girls in many countries having a lack of opportunities like going to school, and I have heard of young women being forced into marriages. I had not yet realized what a major issue it is in Yemen. These situations are…[Read more]
I was very moved by your post. It seems that you did a lot of research on that, which shows your passion for the topic and influences the reader of your argument even more. The thing that was most daunting to me was when you said,”The Association of Chief Officers of Probation studied 1,389 young people on probation schemes.The results…[Read more]
Max, this is such an intriguing topic and discovery, and this makes me want to learn more about it! I would have never guessed this phenomenon before reading this, but now it makes so much sense. The science behind it is both contradictory to what you would conventionally think and also very simple once it’s described. It is incredibly interesting…[Read more]
When we think scientific discoveries, our minds often times take us to either medicine or space exploration, at least that is the case for me. It is very rare when you hear about a discovery in charting our own
Let me start off saying I agree with everything you talked about and how we need to start paying more attention to the ocean. I am passionate about your essay/post because you talk about how we need to start exploring more of the ocean since not much of it is explored because who knows megaladon might be down there. Also, I agree with you about the news and scientists of that there main focus is space.
One thing that you said that stands out to me is,” Ocean diving technology began to develop in the late 1600s. ” I think this is interesting to me because I didn’t know diving technology could be this old. Thanks for taking the time to read this and lets hope more will get discovered.
Your post is very moving in that it addresses the problems so many people are too afraid to even mention. I love it when you said, “I believe that the leaders of America should make more people of color leaders because America if full of diversity and shall be represented with more diversity,” because this is so true and…[Read more]
I am very interested in your post on trust. The three forms of trust are very structured and teach a lot to the reader, not only about the concept itself, but how you define it and what role it plays in your life. The part that I love is when you say, “We learn how to trust by our positive and negative experiences of betrayal and loyalty, and…[Read more]
Througout ypur post the most interesting part I have found would be when you said, “money determines almost everything we do, such as paying for school,work,etc”
I can realte to that because school charges for almost everything and
Your post of personal value and value through your economical state is cohesive and speaks on the problem better than most. Money is important but a life full of people you love and the time you spend with them is worth more. It is often said that the annual salary where happiness and money meet is 70,000 dollars and past that doesn’t bring people anymore emotional stability. What stands out most in your post is “Since it controls so much of our lives every single day, there is a high chance that people may let it decide their self worth.”. Materialistic people never really seem happier than those that have strong connections with others .
I can definitely understand why you would pick money over friends, when you have opportunities to make money you don’t want fake friends getting in the way of it. Though that’s true It’s the connections that you have with people that can give you the best opportunities and make life worth while. Sometimes you have to put your self out there in order to get what you want, but pick and choose the people that you work with and get an understanding of the difference between work and friendship.
I thought your idea was very interesting, especially the part where you explain how many people determine self worth based on belongings. Yet we need money to afford the basics, but people define basics different ways. Some people would say money and friendship are not related, nor is there a choice between the two, but I agree with your idea that it is difficult to differentiate between them. I found this article interesting https://www.financialsamurai.com/making-money-is-easier-than-building-relationships/ because it describes that more and more people are choosing to work more to make more money because it is easier to make money to satisfy yourself than to make friends. People are choosing the easy way out because they believe that making money is going to fulfill them just as much as making friends but it seems that you disagree with this point. Thanks for writing about such an interesting topic that helps us understand why society is changing today. I hope to hear about your opinion of the article I linked in a future post.
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.
