In the article, Maureen Wallace said that high school students are recognizing that climate change is a real issue. One student, in particular, stated that the "climate-crisis" never started as a political issue, it's barely even an environmental issue. She said that it is a moral issue and that it is the government's fault that it is now a political issue. The teens who are trying to help also said that they are planning to represent future generations when they speak out against it. - I think a newbie should read this text set thirdly because it is mostly just explaining how teens are recognizing real-world issues and protesting against them.
In the article, Julie Weed says that some high schools (mostly in Seattle) request for teens to participate in charity work or volunteering. Many high schools are listing volunteering jobs that could potentially change their lives and possibly lead to earning a scholarship or internship. - I chose this text set because, as the first one, it explains in more depth what some of the good outcomes could be from volunteering at a young age and how positively affect their lives.
In the article, Alexandra Pannoni explains how high schoolers are more considerate of their communities and what they are trying to do to help. One example is how they are raising money and donating it to a good cause because they feel, as a younger generation, it's their duty. Another is how they are gaining life skills such as management and communication. - I thought this was a good text set to use because it explained how teens are actually benefitting, both mentally and physically, because they choose to give back and try and make the world a better place. I would recommend a newbie reading this text set first because it gives you some idea of how the teens feel and how they contribute to helping real-world problems.
