I really enjoyed reading your post about twins! I think it is so cool how their genes can lead them to have such similar ives outside of being nurtured the same. It was crazy to see how twins separated at birth could have so much in common. I really enjoy always hearing from different people about the bond between twins, and I think that’s…[Read more]

I really enjoyed your piece. I think it is a unique story and many different ideas will come from it. The evidence you shared was very interesting and I think will help you will further topics in your essay. Specifically, I looked at your link to your annotations on “How Does the US Tax Plan Compare to Other Countries?” What I found most interesting was one of the annotations you had saying that if we followed the Republicans opinion on taxes, they would decrease by 20%. Your essay is coming together great, keep up the great work.

The ancient tradition of capital punishment has been used by many different civilizations since the beginning of time. With an ‘eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth’ mindset, humans have been watching other hum
I agree that the death penalty is pointless and needs to be abolished, keeping criminals off the streets is a solution enough. Killing them wont do anything. As your evidence suggests it doesn’t deter murderers from murdering people. So the death penalty needs to go.
Your post was very inspiring, and I love the mindset that the American dream is what you make it. I really loved reading your post, and I hope to read more from you. I also think it is truly important to focus on achieving our goals, which may be classified as the American Dream to us. Great job!

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.
