One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was “One day, I hope that all of America can see the light that diversity brings us. ” This was very interesting to me because this is all that America needs and what everyone should understand that diversity is apart of life and everyone should be accepted for who they are regardless of color. I love the image behind the message because people all all different shapes sizes and colors which is the main focus of what you were discussing. You have excellent writing and I enjoyed reading this.
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.
