I love your shadow box. I think your shadow box is cool because it has pictures of you when you were little and it shows your childhood. I like how you put a flower to show the stereotypes that women are delicate. My favorite line that you wrote is “ I put flowers because they represent how society stereotypes females as delicate l…[Read more]
I am impressed with your shadow box because I love how you put in pictures from magazines showing the Dominant Narrative that women need to be skinny when that’s not true. I think that you made a really good point when you explained it in detail in showing the counter narrative. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is w…[Read more]
This shadow box represents 3 of my identities which are being a female, being Mexican, and being an older sister. When people look at me, they see a Latina girl who is proud to be who she is but put down by all
I am happy about how your shadow box turned out. I know you didn’t have a lot of time to work on it, but you still worked hard and made your shadow box looked fantastic. I appreciate the work you put into that. One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is ¨I see myself as a young independent person who is HONORED to be a Latina feminist in the Oakland community¨. I liked that sentence because you are showing how proud you are to be who you are.
Thank you for your writing! I look forward to seeing your fabulous writing in the future because your work are always amazing, like this shadow box post!
One sentence that stood out to me was how you added pictures of your childhood it shows your family. It also shows me how you are showing that your family is important to you.
Another part that I liked was the colors of your box made it so colorful and attracting to look at.
Great work on your artist statement too you rock!
Thank you for sharing your work. My name is Isis Smith and I am a student at Fremont High School.
Something I liked about your work was the pictures you put in to describe who you are and what you put inside and how you did it.
Something I have a question about is why did you put those pictures and are they special and important to you. Please feel free to comment on my work in the future. And you can see it because I finished.
I love how you put in your ballet shoes in your box to fight the stereotypes. I also love how you put in different color beads on the top of your box to show your three flags. Another part that I liked is where you talk about the lotion your grandma gave you 3 years ago and you want to keep it as long as you can to show your…[Read more]
This is a youth-powered social network 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.
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.
