Over the past couple of weeks, I have been researching about the topic of self-driving cars and their potential impacts on our society. In order to write a very persuasive and informative essay about this
In my Expository Writing class, we are working on a research paper that will help create discussions over a variety of different topics. For my paper, I chose to research about the technology of self-driving cars
I really enjoyed reading your article, and I completely agree with you that this is a big issue right now. I also agree that lots of people chose to drink alcohol because they think it will make you cool and mature. However, there a lot of consequences when making these kinds of decisions. In addition, a lot of students in high…[Read more]
Great job on your essay! I agree that technology can be distracting and bad at times, but that is only because of how we choose to use certain types of technology. Smartphones, for example, provide us with an unlimited number of ways to communicate and interact with each other as well as providing great educational resources if we use…[Read more]
I thought your article was very interesting, and I agree with your argument that grades do not always measure intellect. In addition, I really like how you provided many examples from credible sources such as The Washington Post and The Huffington Post to support your claim and to persuade your audience. Lastly, I thought mentioning…[Read more]
Have you ever wondered what transportation will be like in the next decade? Will there be an increase in electric cars, or will self driving cars be the new norm? The field of technology and engineering is
I think you do a really good job of providing an in-depth analysis of autonomous cars, and I agree, the safety benefits seem to hint that they are the future of transportation. You mention several of the statistical benefits of autonomous driving, but you also highlight the “anxiety factor.” In your opinion, what steps would have to be taken for us as a society to make this cultural shift? We have been in control of our vehicles since the invention of the combustion engine, so how will we convince the world to turn over that control to a machine?
Words can have a huge impact on our lives and they can inspire us in many different ways. One of my favorite words out of the entire English language is the word perseverance. Even though this word is very c
I am satisfied with your post because it is an accurate representation of perseverance and what it means to you. You also give context and an example from a popular book series. One thing you said that stood out to me was “Because I am a high school student there is a lot of pressure” I think this is interesting because high school students are able to relate to you and your story. Your post reminds me of what happens to me everyday. Also being a high school student, stress adds up on me. I have to worry about grades and college, etc. Thanks for sharing your post, I look forward to seeing what you post next because you are a very deep and intelligent writer. Your message is easy to relate to and interesting.
Eric, I can connect to your post. Being a high school student as well as a teenager, I experience a lot and understand your post well. Your post really inspired me. The way you worded your post was awesome!
I really enjoyed reading your post! When you mentioned your little sister and how it was your responsibility to be a role model for her, it really inspired me to do the same thing with kids younger than me. Adding on to that, I really liked how you are so motivated to help your parents when they are busy. When being responsible, people…[Read more]
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.
