I stand for anyone’s and everyone’s right to speak up for the things that they believe in even if I do not agree with what they are saying. I feel like in today’s society we are so quick to vilify someone if they
I completely agree with what you are saying in this post. Especially as a Junior, I am thinking more and more about college and of course how I am going to pay for it. I think education should be a right that anyone can attain if they want t.
“It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself up to go and humble myself to a nigger- but I done it, and I warn’t ever sorry for it afterwards, neither. I didn’t do him no more mean tricks, and I would
Nothing. There is usually a brief period of remembrance between when you wake up and actually open your eyes. Your brain will drink a big cup of coffee and start to work again. It’ll program itself to remember e
I really enjoyed reading your short story. I especially liked your intro to the story. When you said that there’s a brief remembrance between when you wake up and actually open your eyes I understand what your character is feeling. When you don’t remember what happened the day before, but, then again I always remember later on. I loved the details you put in your writing it was very intriguing. I hope you keep on writing because your really great at it and I’m looking forward to anything else you write.
P.S. Maybe in the future you’ll make this into a book…I’d read it:)
Awesome selection of books. I have read four out of five of them and I loved them all. I need a new book so thanks for the suggestion of The Cay. I have never heard of it. I think I will read it next. Your summary skills are great too. And thanks for posting this list. I know a lot of people who don’t like reading but they have to. I will show them your piece for book recommendations.
The books you showed were really great. I have only read some of the Harry Potter books. But the collection of books looks really interesting. I think I’m going to be reading more of these books. I read the Harry Potter books and they are really long and I am currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and it is really good and I love the story of it. I think that was a great list of books that I should try to read sometime.
I really like your passage, you gave me many wonderful choice of books. I only read To Kill a Mockingbird and some of the Harry Potter books. Actually this summer I will have plenty of time to read, I will definitely chose some of books you recommend. The first one will be The Cay. After all, I do like your opinion about teenagers reading issue.
Asha, I totally agree with a lot of what you said including that we are avoiding something that needs to be addressed. I don’t know how we could prevent or limit climate change but I do think that it is an issue that needs to be talked about even if there is no definitive solution.
In the United States, there are currently 30 states that allow capital punishment. That means it is legally authorized to kill someone as a punishment for a crime if a jury convicts that person. Not only do I
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.
