I clicked on your post because I played rugby for a club team here in Salt Lake and enjoyed it very much. Rugby is a great sport and teaches how to be a member of a team and try to achieve something that is bigger then yourself. One problem with Rugby however is that people get injured similarly to football and you should address how football and rugby are different. The distinction with help you not have a person say “why have rugby its just football.” Pointing out the differences is going to be key in your essay. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/travel/football-or-rugby-whose-players-are-tougher-83608687/
I think that this is a cool idea. I personally like rugby so I decided to check out what you have to say. I have found a few websites that I think can and will help you when you start your research and maybe, help you make a convincing argument for rugby. The first website, http://www.rochester.edu/team/benefits-of-sports-to-students/ is all about how sports can help students, “playing sports teaches life lessons like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, accountability, and teamwork.” The second expresses reasons why students should play sports (https://www.publicschoolreview.com/blog/10-reasons-why-high-school-sports-benefit-students). I believe that Simon has given you a good resource in why rugby isn’t just football, so I focused my sources around how sports can benefit your community. Hopefully you’ll find at least one useful thing there. I am excited to see what your final paper is going to be and how you sell how rugby should be added to your sports list.
I play rugby for a club team in Utah and i find it a great way to bond with team mates and overall its a really safe and fun sport. I agree rugby should be included as a high school sport its a great way to meet new people and build character. if football is allowed rugby should be as well. As you stated above you should focus on all race making it more welcome for more then just polynesians increasing the participation rate which is my other point. Ask yourself how can you get others to participate in rugby thats why football and basketball etc. are so popular, its all about the participation rate. I also think you should start with a solution of your own and then ask your peers to critique it in ways keeping your originality making your argument that much stronger. This link http://www.thespectrum.com/story/sports/2014/11/10/rugby-continues-americas-fastest-growing-sport/18830397/ should help support your problem and I wish you the best of luck, cant wait to see more posts from you.
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.
