I really like how you expressed you poem here it really shows what people might think when they think about suicide. It really shows that you gave thought onto this common problem that is out there. I like when you said that “people commit suicides because of love and because of depression” it shows how strong your poem is some par…[Read more]
I really appreciate the confidence you had to share this personal story to the class i know it must be hard for you to have your dad lost every day. This shows that you are strong by sharing this not only to our class but to the public as well. Thanks for sharing this with us hope we get more poems from you soon!
I like your poem it’s strong it’s simple and gets to the main point that “growing up wasn’t always easy” your poem was strong i liked when you said “There are bullets,
BANG! BANG! BANG!
Bullets that dance through the air
And hit innocents”
This was really strong because it’s true we see and hear innocent people get murdered by mean…[Read more]
Chris, this poem shows very literally the negativity of violence, and how it affects others. I found it very interesting how you mentioned that violence is started by people who are hurt. I can tell the words you wrote are what you truly feel about violence, and how we don’t know how to end it, but we know its a toxic chain reaction that needs to stop.
I really like how your poem explained what is violence and you gave your perpective and your side of the story on violence. Something that you said that stood out to me is ”Violence creates death” because then you explain on why that is true because people are dying everyday. I also really admire how you where repartive in your poem like saying “we” “we” “we” because you are saying like we as in all. Thank you for writing a wonderful poem. I look forward to seeing what poems you write next.
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.
Sincerely, Bryan Moreno
I like your box because it really shows who you identify yourself as. This is important because this is who you are and you clearly demonstrate that here. Also, i like how you put the red on the outside of your box.
I really like the way you have you box and how you show yourself about you being Mexican American. I really think that your car was a very strong object because you explain what you do in car and most people see Mexican like people that would do illegal things when driving but what your wrote about yourself shows that those comments…[Read more]
You should know who I am because you have known me since 6th grade But the point of his is that I really like your shadow box because I remember seeing you draw your drawing. Also, that proves that your a very hard worker in school because if you take long on a drawing you take long on your work too this shows who you really are. I…[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.
