Dear Xue Feng Zheng,
I was excited while reading your Oral history with your friend ZhuangZhi Lin, Even if am not Chinese I really like the interview hearing you guys speaking in your native’s language makes me proud and also because I like the language, to be honest, am always watching Chinese drama even if I don’t entirely understand every…[Read more]
This is a very special friendship. I would like to hear more about why you guys are such good friends. I also have had friends that were like family to me, so I know how important a best friend can be. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of our friends. Great Job!
I am inspired by your post, thinking that you and your family had to run out of your own country because of war and because everything was turning inside out, the story make me think about a book I read and also today in my country the same thing is happening not a war between countries but a civil war and now my country turned…[Read more]
I am Kerly, and I am charmed by your story, A sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “A week ago my mom and I were sitting together, I was doing my homework, and my mom was selling clothes in front of the house. Mr Robert, an old friend of the family for a very long time, was passing by and he saw something that attracted him. I bought the clothes from my mom for $ 150, but never paid her for them. pay her the next day, but never did. So since then, I had to avoid him. ” I loved this paragraph of your story because it is something that once in our life will happen to someone.
This reminds me of an experience I once had with a friend in Ecuador, because a friend asked me to lend her $ 5 and never paid me.
Thanks for writing I hope to see what you write next, because I really like how you write your stories because they are so interesting.
This piece did a very good job describing who you are and what you enjoy. When you said “I am made of watching all the people pass by below me
and the noisy school children in red and black uniforms playing on the street.” I could relate to that because when I was young I would look out my window and watch people walk by on the street. Good writing.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform 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.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
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.
