Dear Leticia, I am compassionate about your short story, “It Is How I feel In Real Life,” because I felt the pain that Maggie went through because of her wounds.

Dear Denieris Marte I am impressed by your short story, “The hidden Struggle of my life.” because of the way you show through your story that Maggie has never been happy.

The three stories surely have similarities and differences. Although the characters in the three texts have different cognitive traits, they all seem to be related to race despite their different reality. In t
I am overjoyed by your post “Discovery Of My Felt Sense” because you appreciate the way women want to overcome inequality at that time. I like the way you emphasize who was the first woman running to power. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We shall fight injustice or even racism without going to war or even have a scratch. Because we should take advice from the past and until now, letters have never failed. Education is the key to unleash true freedom” because I support the idea that fighting is not going to solve any problem and people dying without a strong reason is not moral. Another sentence that I was reading : “ Thirty-five dollars would pay for the rent and the piano bill too.Who are these people that spend that much for performing clowns and $1000 for toy sailboats?” the contrast between these people is almost laughable.” This stood out for me because few people can realize that in today’s society too, history can keep repeating over and over. I like the evidence that you provide from the story that helps your ideas by being realistic statistics which show economic situations. I don’t agree with you that irony is the only writing strategy that one reason why I say this is because you can also connect this with conflict keep in mind that here we can see Man vs. Society. Have you seen this video on “Junot Diaz- How to Date a Browngirl, Blackgirl, Whitegirl, or Halfie” I thought you might be interested in this because it is so easy when you see the character acting. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, for sure I like the way you support women’s ideas.
I am impressed by your story about ” The Discovery of my felt sense” because you explain very detailed how the three stories show similarities among each other. You also reflect how the stories highlight Black people in all three.
One of the set of lines that stood out for me were ” Imagery is used to appreciate the appearance of Black women int the story.” I never thought about women being admired on all of the sides. I thought about the opposite way , yet about suing the same literary element. In the three stories, women are all being put as the main problem or are kind of being characterized as always understood by men in the society. I also think that women do not need to have dependency on man for nothing. They perform good job in the society, and are actual leaders in our current world. Another set of lines that stood out for me was when you say ” We shall fight injustice or even racism without going to war or even have a scratch. Because we should take advice from the past and until now, letter have never failed. Education is the key to unleash true freedom” . it is a very powerful influence for people to understand that racism should be stopped. It is quite uncomfortable to be colored just because of the fact that people tend to treat them not that nice , just because of their race. They do not consider the fact that colored people did not choose to have the race that they have. It is why things like these, need to be spoken .
Your story reminds me of U.S History when we learned about how Black people were treated in the past and how there were a lot of injustices and segregation among Black and white people. I was given to create a speech based upon the videos that were seen in the class. I actually performed that speech and the fact that Black people did not choose or sign to have their race was a fact included in there.
Thanks for sharing your story with me. I look forward to what comes up next on your plate. Your story is very detailed, specific and powerful. Sincerely, Idelkys
Dear Isaac : I am inspired by your literary analysis,”Discovery of My Felt Sense,” because you describe specific literary elements that you find connection between the three stories. These stories have connections in some issues that are education, inequality in our society. I like the way you explain the cause and affect people in different ways. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: ” Unlike the last text, which focuses more on the behavioral, physical analysis of females. These three texts reveal how judgmental and unequal humanity has become.” I think this is interesting because it describes some stereotypes that people create inequality between some groups of people. For example; religion, education, gender, etc.. Another sentence that I was: “This world ought to come close to perfection but only if we come to agree with our past in order to embrace the future with a pure heart..” This stood out for me because it describes how people change during the time. Sometimes it is difficult to change the education people and this is going affect specific communities with arguments that are our future. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are a great writer and have ideas that help to understand the main idea of your text.
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.
