Hi Shania, I think your Shadow Box is so beautiful and I love the symbolism behind everything you chose. I think it was very clever to use beads, origami, popsicle sticks and pipe cleaners to represent aspects of you and your life. This was a beautiful post and I’m very impressed. 🙂

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.
