This is very thought out. I do agree that world hunger is a huge issue in the world. Many kids go to sleep without any food in there system and it’s very sad. I totally agree and appreciate your topic.
In 1935, that was when GMO was started or discovered. In 1994 is when GMO foods were getting sold in stores. GMO is a laboratory process where genes from a DNA is forced into genes of an unrelated plant or animal.
I think that this essay is focusing too much upon what may be bad. As far as I see, there is no quantifiable evidence that says that GMOs are specifically bad. They aren’t necessarily less nutritious, as Golden Rice has allowed many people to have a healthier alternative to what they could eat. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_rice) Another interesting part of the argument, which I feel is though you addressed, is the speculative nature of science related to GMOs. Humans have effected wildlife around us ever since we started to select what plants we want to eat and spread the seeds of. GMOs are just a furthering of this idea in a new, more specific direction. You have proper warrant to be scared of GMOs, but I think that benefits, in some cases, outweigh potential harms.
The application of genetic engineering I’ve chose was GMO’s in food. I chose this particular application because one of my classmates had done this topic for his senior project and there so many things that I
I understand that genetic engineering is very precise. From the color of our hair to how our toes look is all from genetic engineering. Anything you can think is from coding DNA. There are only certain genes

I love how you really care about your Latino people/culture.

I very much do agree that this is a serious issue. You’re problem is well-said, but elaborate more on why would just protesting make a change. Not only, that protesting would help and think furthermore on what else can you do to get the word out. Why protest in front of their work place or white house, elaborate on what effect that’ll have, like…[Read more]
I think this is great but also talk more about how it affects you and others. Also, talk more about why teens go into gang violence, is it due to family issues? I think this is a very serious issue, even living in Oakland, teens are being killed from gang violence. Overall this is a great start.

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.
