One thing that defines people as American is freedom of choice. America is built upon the idea that all people have rights that cannot be take away, and that everyone has the freedom to choose what they want
I think that your use of evidence in this piece is very valuable to your topic. It gets right to the main topic of the passage and accurately shows the reader a representation of the American Values that you mention.

I agree with your statement that opportunity, equality, and freedom are the key values that make up our American creed. When you were talking about opportunity I liked how you talked about how opportunities are around us every day in life and with that I thought it was interesting how you talked about our high school has programs that offer kids many different job opportunities for the future. I wonder what America would be like today if these values weren’t a part of the American creed? would America still be a developing country or not?
I completely agree with the points that you mentioned in this post. Lots of people this country believe that because a group of people did something, that other people like them will end up doing the same bad things.

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.
