Yadira nice post! It is amazing to hear how beautiful a poem truly is. It is something everyone can cherish. Your article is fantastic however, I would love to have read more content about this! Nice job overall!
I am surprised by your poem “¨A Poem of Mexico¨ because it shows how beautiful Mexico is and talks about the places there are.
A phrase that you highlight for me is “We are beautiful no matter where you’re from down south, east, north, west, or anywhere in between. Here are there” I think this is truly true because in reality it does not matter where let’s come the important thing is to show us the respect not dependent on our origins
Thanks for your writing I hope to continue looking at what you write below because your publication seemed very interesting to me.
Me emociono mucho tu post, “A Poem of Mexico Response” porque me recordo a mi querido El Salvador. Hace un año que lo deje pero, nunca he olvidado de donde soy y de lo orgullosa que me siento.
Una frase que escribiste que se destaca para mi es “learned of how beauty behind Mexico, its unity in family and its love for peace and quiet” cada país tiene sus defectos, pero no los tiene porque deve si no porque nosotros mismos nos encargamos de destruir a cada paso que damos, pero cada quien ve su país diferente y se basa en lo que tenemos, si tienes tu familia completa, un techo y como sobrevivir te sentirás bien donde estas, pero siempre hay personas que dejan su país no porque quieran, sino porque quieren seguir disfrutando de eso mismo.
Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque me parece interesante como ves tu país. Y a ti, si te gusta tu país?
Dear wendy :
I am inspired by your poem, “A Poem of Mexico,” because although i’ve never been able to go the way my parents describe the good side of it makes it vivid for my to live the memory. I enjoy when they talk about their mother land because although im not yet able to go i feel like i’ve already met Mexico.

The article, “breaking the stigma around ADD/ADHD” Gracie the author talks about how society has labeled and sees people with ADHD/ADD as special-needs but the difference is the ADHD is most commonly controllable and even has some benefits to it. ADHD is the capacity to not be able to focus but there is hyper fixation. Where someone with ADHD is…[Read more]

” because society is cruel to those that are in the slightest different then the “norm” and i understand they way you feel about the labels society gives.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ ADD/ADHD has been labeled as special needs or less…[Read more]
The schools shouldn’t allow to limit students online speech, because it would violate free speech which is part of the first amendment. The other reason is due to the students would feel that they would fear that the school would see what they would post and limit them beyond their online speech. OCHS
Yadira, I think your point about schools not being able to limit free speech can’t be disputed, but if you look at the school’s point of view there are some reasons they might want to stop their students from saying whatever they want online. One real-life example is that of US President Trump’s twitter account. Due to the first amendment, nobody can stop Trump from posting whatever he wants on his twitter, but it gives him a very bad look with some of the more outlandish comments he makes. This applies to people enrolled at schools because they are representing those institutions. It’s important to look at the reasons for the schools not wanting kids posting anything on social media because they most likely have your best interests at heart.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
