After reading the article, “Greek Mythology: Sources,” I noticed the methods that they went about drawing in the reader. They first stated what they were looking into; they set the claim and their purpose up by
Oftentimes, legends are held throughout history and passed through cultures as bedtime stories but where did they come from? Every story has an origin or an inspiration, but where did these inspirations come from
Some mornings, some people look at the sunny sky and can’t get up in the mornings. They can’t stop thinking about the reality of life and the mind begins to destroy itself. A person can only accept so much pain
I really like the way in which you describe the pain individuals with depression are going through. However, I do not necessarily agree with your statement. If someone claims to be depressed they should be helped not made to beleive they are doing it for attention. People do not state they are depressed because, they want something to complain about. Why beat yourself up and create sadness in your life when you could be happy instead?
I really appreciate this and how you depict depression. I think this was very accurate and I agree with what you said. I think that, not all, but a lot of people these days are claiming and blaming their “depression” for any bad decisions they make because it’s easy to blame you mistakes on something that you can’t control. I think a lot of people use depression as an excuse when they don’t really have it. And I think it’s very unfair to the people who are struggling with major depression or anxiety or OCD because these people who really are struggling or are suicidal even, will just be viewed as dramatic or just “a teen in a rough spot” as you put it. So I strongly agree and appreciate your concern.
I would suggest using examples for this research. If your looking for a way to prove that women are over sexualized on t.v and on media, then look up pictures. Or even look up debates on the subject. Use both sides of the story and find evidence to support both and see which on you agree with most.
It was a rainy Sunday evening , as a second round of dark clouds came into Washington park. The rain came down in pitter patters, and the occasional pour every now and then. Families stayed inside
This is a really good start to a story, it really draws the reader in. There’s on part where you say back hair, and I think you meant to say black that I thought you’d like to know about, but overall it is very well written!
I love the imagery in the post ! I enjoyed the descriptions of the girl’s hair and the scenery. It really drew me in and interested me in finishing reading the whole post! I’ve never heard of the Cambridge’s Home of Orphans. Also, it made me realize that these kids in the oprhanages are just innocent.
This poem really speaks to me… because perhaps i can relate on a level most cant. I know the feeling of how it seems society only looks for certain things now and not the beautiful characteristics of being human.
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.
