Student Writing

One World Education believes that students should write to be read, in addition to earning a grade. We select and publish around 1% of the exemplary writing from Student Ambassadors who completed the One World Program in order to model grade-level writing and to create a forum for peer-to-peer learning. Additionally, every student-authored essay is accompanied by a Reflection Experience, which is a series of content and reading comprehension assessments.

Student Ambassador: Tatiana Robinson | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
Tatiana argues that if we want to say we live in a democracy, the electoral college should be abolished. She describes its history and how it is no longer representative of the people, and how when she is old enough to vote, she wants to be sure her vote actually counts!
Student Ambassador: Zora Gregory | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 8
In her essay, Zora argues that Congress should implement a law that disqualifies anyone using hate speech during their candidacies, which she believes would help decrease the amount of hate speech used, and as the result, the number of hate crimes.
Student Ambassador: Emma Lawrence | Ambassador Class: 2017 | Grade: 10
Emma argues that gendered advertising towards children needs to be stopped since it puts pressure on families to fill society’s rigid gender binary and it limits children’s future occupational opportunities. Having all children play with all types of toys in ads and removing gender-specific labels could go a long way towards ungendering toys.
Student Ambassador: Reinna Brummett Swayze | Ambassador Class: 2016 | Grade: 8
In her essay, Reinna discusses the damages she believes climate change is causing to the environment and the world in which we live. After looking at the arguments for and against implementing policies to reduce climate change, she urges everyone to start reducing their impact now.

Student Ambassador: Taronne Garland | Ambassador Class: 2016 | Grade: 10

Student Ambassador: Abosede Onibon-Oje | Ambassador Class: 2016 | Grade: 10
Abosede discusses how lowering the cost of public college or establishing free college will reduce the amount of stress placed on college students, allow people to pursue education without going into debt, and eliminate the excuse of college not being affordable.
