According to an article by Beyond, 20% of people procrastinate chronically. Unfortunately, I am a part of that 20%; I insist on putting things off until the last minute, and while there have never been any seen
This is very interesting commentary, Montana. We use our phones and other technology all of the time but in general are not thinking about the damage that it can be doing on both our bodies and our minds. I found it especially interesting when you mentioned that when we put our heads down 60 degrees it is like putting 60 ponds of force on our…[Read more]
I enjoyed reading your post, Matthew; you had a lot of good suggestions in your article that show that you have done a lot of research. I especially like how you talk about using capitals, numbers, and symbols in passwords, which is a very easy thing to do that could save people a lot of trouble. Another thing I read that people can do…[Read more]
I really enjoyed reading this article, Ammar; the fact that you have a personal connection to the war is very touching and it is truly sad that this is happening in the world today. I especially think it’s horrible that 70% of the population of Yemen is in need of aid (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-29319423). Thanks for your take on…[Read more]
Every year, we get closer and closer to true equality. Wages are going up for minority races and for women, and the state of equality was much worse even just ten years ago compared to today. People have b

I’ve also read stories about dystopian societies where for example ballerinas have to dance with weights so that the bad dancers would be as good as them or how people with good eyesight had to wear terrible glasses to that they wouldn’t be better than the people with bad eyesight. Maybe equality isn;t that good.
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.
