I found your article to be engaging you talk about which ninja turtle are you? I feel like I’m either Donatello or Michaelangelo. This article expresses what type of person are you and how your personality correlates to a ninja turtle. I feel like you should’ve had an intro paragraph about the topic and introduce that there are four…[Read more]
Hello Kimberly, I found your comment to be interesting. I can somewhat relate to this, being an immigrant in the United States and learning to adapt to a new culture.

Issa, this topic for sure took my interest. I think its very interesting that in Yemen girls do not get as much authority as boys.

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.
