Student Voice: 100 Argument Essays by Teens on Issues That Matter to Them
Katherine Schulten (Author)
In this new collection of 100 essays curated by The New York Times, students will find mentor texts written by their peers-13-to-18-year-olds-on a wide range of topics, including social media, race, video games, lockdown drills, immigration, tackle football, and the #MeToo movement. All of the essays were either winners or runners-up from The New York Times Learning Network 2014-2019 Student Editorial contests, in which students could take on any issue they liked and, in 450 words or fewer, persuade readers-including educators from around the country as well as Times judges-to adopt their point of view. The essays have been selected for their voice, style, and use of evidence, as well as to present snapshot of issues across a dozen categories that are of particular interest to adolescents. Student Voice is also available as a package with Raising Student Voice: 35 Ways to Help Students Write Better Argument Essays, from The New York Times Learning Network, a teacher's companion guide packed with practical advice from teachers, Times editors, and even student winners about how to use these essays in writing instruction.
