For my research paper I researched the decision making process of a general manager in athletics. More specifically the correlation between playing a high level of college basketball or football and if that
I think this is an interesting topic. I’ve played and watched sports my whole life and wondered a lot about careers in sports. I think that like any job, your network that you build is a huge part of finding jobs and being hired. For high-level athletes, the networks they build are crucial for their present athletic career as well as future job prospects. Many people also see those who play sports in college and professionally as more qualified because they have more experience with the game and coaching/managing styles that they can bring to the table if pursuing a career in athletics. I found this article for you about professional athletes’ careers after sports: https://theconversation.com/game-over-how-professional-athletes-can-have-a-career-after-sport-71555
This is a great topic and I have wonder if the game has changed too much and if it has gotten a little softer. The research behind the analytics of basketball is a great topic and I can’t wait to see what els you find out about this.
My research paper is on athletic general managers and how they go about getting to their position, which is a question I am very interested in. Some questions arise when it comes to NBA GMs and NFL GMs, for
Tom, really interesting topic. I, myself, have wondered how one becomes a general manager because that has always been a dream job for me. I would be very interested to read your final research paper to find out how I can get into player scouting and team managing. Your paper might really give me an edge into getting in to that field one day, and if it does, I would be eternally grateful.
Tom, really cool topic and I think that it is something that can be applied to much of the world of high respect – high class positions. With many of the Presidents, CEO’s and corporate leaders of the world today, many fall into these positions in a very random manner. Some (like the NFL or other national sports agencies) work their way through the corporate ladder, but many fall into these positions with no prior affiliation to the organization. I think this is a really cool project and I am excited to see the results and the end product of your research.

Katie, this post is really interesting and very educational on the idea of these types of amputations. I believe that your story for the traditional procedure will be a great addition to this post. This was really a great post.
Anna, The way you began this paper with research was great. I personally agree with you in the fact that as teenagers we do function a lot better if we have a full nights sleep. Even though transportation would change we could find a way around it, if that would be getting a ride from a friend or other ways around the transportation change. In the…[Read more]
I have worn a uniform to school since first grade and I know they can get annoying and you want to demonstrate your individuality, which is a good thing, being able not to worry about what to wear is a bonus. I do feel that we should get some freedom like forgetting a belt no one should care about that, but other than these little irritations the…[Read more]
I would like to agree that Donald Trump is going back on a view policies that he believed in and he might have just said some of those things to win the election. But I need to agree that playing into the population is a part of the campaign but he should stick by his statements and this goes to show you what kind of man he is.
I agree with this our next president should provide help to all immigrants and not turn their back to them or go to war. We should provide help to those who desperately need it and should give many immigrants the opportunity they deserve. Who are we to decide that people shouldn’t better their lives.
Dear Angel, I agree with your post that black lives matter and this is getting out of hand. Everyone should be treated equal and especially agree with your statement “when you are president, don’t encourage racism.” This is something we definitely need from our commander and chief and they need to show everyone that everyone is equal no matter the…[Read more]
I’m interested in the topic of gun control and how we can not take away guns from the american people because personally I do believe in the second amendment and how everyone has a right to bear arms but the p
Your writing is very interesting and expands in many areas of this idea. In my opinion everyone should file some taxes, even though it is a difficult decision and time when incomes are low. You had a good topic
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.
