Dear Zheng hao Chen I am very impressed by your post, “ An Accident in the street,” because it’s very thrilling and dangerous that got hit by the car rearview One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Then the driver tried to find me so the driver ran straight outside my house and start shouting“ I think the driver has a responsib…[Read more]
Ceming, this is very interesting. I am so impressed by all that you have gone through, it is not easy learning another language! Not to mention being an immigrant and moving to the United States without knowing English. I went on an international service trip, and it is overwhelming being away from home and not knowing the native language, so I applaud you for handling it so gracefully! I think that it is really cool how your culture mixed with American culture has influenced the way you celebrate holidays such as Christmas! I really enjoyed reading your article!
Dear Ceming : I am amazed to hear your post, “Poetic Project,” because it gives many readers a new perspective on how English brings a new scope into a foreigner’s life. The growth you show throughout your paragraph is empowering and helpful to many who struggle with learning English. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “We celebrate Christmas but not the same as the American people celebrate it.” I think this is different because many people do not understand other holidays different regions of the world have to offer. From Ramadan to the Chinese New Year, we all have something to bring to the table of diversity. Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time while checking out at a retail store, my parents and I talked in our dialect we speak at home and an older Caucasian gentleman came up to my father and said: “This is American, we speak English here”. This caused a flame in my heart because he could never understand the beauty of speaking a different language. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
Dear Ceming, I am interested in your post,”Poetic Project”, because it shows how hard and difficult to learn a new language or going to a new place. One sentence you wrote that stand out me is”the Chinese include many different dialects.”I think this is interested because it telling me that there a lot dialects in china and people speak different dialects. This reminds me of an experience I had once that I talk to my Chinese friend and he speaks a different Chinese to me that I didn’t know it was dialects. Thanks for writing I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I want to learn more about what happened to you when you learning English.
As an ENL student.some time in my another class I don’t ever Know what Teacher saying .because I don’t know a lot of word.English. It is too hard for me but I’m good at math. But I don’t have math this year a
I enjoyed reading your post and I hope that you achieve your dream to be fluently bilingual and help others in the future through the use of your languages. One thing that stands out for me was your quote, “All things have their meaning of existence.” I think this is valuable to realize because we need each other in order to survive.
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.
