As I rummaged through the vast internet, I found an enormous amount of information regarding my topic of climate change. Using the knowledge I acquired this week from reading chapter five of the book Reading
With emissions being at a record high currently, climate change is a very important issue. Above the issue of reducing usage and finding a solution, people tend to struggle with belief of it’s existence. With this
Hey Matthew, this is a very insightful paper. It really shows how some things are not as they seem in this country. I really liked the statistic about how less than 9% of the population are veterans yet they account for 18% of the nation’s suicides. This shows how serious this issue actually is.

When a person walks into an art museum, what should they expect to see? A painting? A sculpture? A book? A poem? A video game? Most people do not expect to see a video game in a museum. They see them in their
I really like this argument because it is something new and out of the box. I found this piece really intresting to read. I like how you clearly stated your claim about how video games should be considered as art anf all the evidence you backed it up with. Keep up the good work!
This was a really cool perspective on video games that I had never thought about. I also think that video games are a type of art, and they should be appreciated like they are art. So much time and creative influences go into creating video games, and they really put you into a whole other world of art. I liked how you mentioned the court case that helped video games be seen more as art and how you talked about the Smithsonian as an example of a museum that shows off video games as an art. Time Magazine did an article about how video games are a combination of art and science, and I thought that was another cool way to look at it. http://time.com/section/tech/

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.
