I really like how you started by asking a question and then answering it a few sentences after asking the question. Also in your analysis for your second paragraph which states, “This quote is addressing that in the 90’s, before 1996, it used to be illegal to smoke marijuana medicinally and legally meaning that people who needed med…[Read more]
I am happy about the topic you choose because nobody decided to write about this and literally nobody talks about undercover modern day slavery. A part that I liked was how you stated in your blog, “A lot of people don’t know what sex trafficking is and it’s important to know what it is because sex trafficking can happen by choic…[Read more]
I am caught by your blog ¨Soccer Is Life Right?¨ because it truly brings out the reasons why soccer is overlooked in the U.S. and brings out the true positives of soccer that would benefit us all. I also liked how you truly know your soccer knowledge and know where America’s team has fallen short. One sentence that truly caught my attention is, “Curtis raised a very important point, there’s a lot of flopping in soccer especially by the best players like Ronaldo, Suarez, Neymar etc. But there is also flopping by the best players in the NBA like Lebron James and James Harden but people only point out when soccer players flop but they don’t point out when basketball players flop in the US”. This caught my eye because it shows that other sports that get more attention than soccer do the same things that soccer is called out for yet they are watched more. With this statement you prove those who hate soccer for flopping yet like other sports wrong because you show that you are getting nearly the same quality of sports. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you can change the worlds perspective by bringing other things that people might have not thought about into the light. =)
I like how you choose the topic Love, but what inspired you to choose love as your topic. Anyways your poem was great. A line that stood out to me was when you said, “Both would do anything so they could be together wishing they could go back to the moment where they fell in love even knowing that they shouldn’t be because they bot…[Read more]
I like how you decided to write a poem about your community! A line that really stood out to me is when you said, “Me and my mom locked in the car. You know nothing new, another shooting”. That stood out to me because that was a way you decided to describe your community and it’s just like damn. Overall your poem was really good.…[Read more]
Thanks for sharing your poem I thought it was a very good poem. A line that stood out to me was when you said, “Don’t you love someone so much? Despite everything. You love them even when you are hurt badly”. That line stood out to me because I feel like that’s so true. Overall your poem was good and I enjoyed reading it. Thanks…[Read more]
Your poem is really good. I honestly like your poem I like how you chose the topic violence. But from all the things that happened in Romeo and Juliet what made you choose violence? I think you should have explained why you choose violence in your description but overall your poem was really good.

Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was, “What people call Love, Is just a chemical reaction. It hits hard, But slowly fades.” because the very beginning of the poem you can tell exactly how Romeo feels about Love now. A connection I made to your poem is how you talked about feeling hopeless because everyone feels hopeless at some point and you told this so vividly that I could see and feel the hopelessness in his eyes. Your poem also reminded me of how some people really do give up on love and how Romeo found his Juliet(even if they died), his true love. Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.
Thanks for sharing your poem with us, you are a Poet. A line that stood out to me was when you said “ Is just a chemical reaction it hits hard but slowly fades”.

Thanks for sharing your poem was us keep making more. #FAX

This shadow box represents many things. Some of the things it represents is my ethnicity. It also represents one of my chosen identities which is being a soccer player. My shadow box also show some dominant
I really like your shadow box! I too play soccer and know how it is a big part of your life. I like the medal and other soccer related items but I also really like the quote you added in the bottom corner about persevering through difficult life situations. The attitude of instead of “Why me” but “Try me” is smart and I will remember that next time life throws me a curve ball. Thanks for your input and good luck to Barca in Champions league!
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “ In my shadow box I put some motivational quotes because when I am feeling sad or down I look at motivational quotes because the quotes I find make me feel motivated and they cheer me up.” I think this is cool because I can see that you really love motivational quotes. I can also see they really mean alot to you and makes you feel special.
I like your shadow box and it looks amazing! I also was a soccer player but stopped it was a part of my life.My favorite part of your shadow box is the food picture on the right of your shadow box. I also like a lot of Mexican food and I also like the motivational quotes because they really stand out in the shadow box, they show a lot of importance to you and how you would look at life.
Thank you for sharing your work. I love how you added specific stuff about soccer because I myself love soccer and that shows how you love soccer. Also I like the paragraph that you wrote because it said a lot in just one paragraph which shows that you’re a good writer.
Something you should have added in your paragraph is that you s…[Read more]
I love how you made a soccer field in your shadow box. That shows how you are so creative seeing this soccer field on your shadow box inspired me to make a soccer field in my shadow box, So thanks for sharing this shadow box with us. Keep on doing what you are doing. It’s coming home.
I love your shadow box I think it was very creative and I can tell what you were trying to prove. A piece of advice is probably add more pictures. But other than that you did very well in this project keep up the good work bud.

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.
