Dear El-Hassan I am compassionate with your story because it really stands out for me and people can just read the first paragraph and understand what you are going to talk about in the essay. Maggie’s family were really struggling when it comes to education and living status. This sentence really caught my attention “which was a very poor village and most people who reside there didn’t have enough education neither able to send their children to college. Because being poor can really hurt and prevent them from getting education and other privileges. This sentence is inspiring because you took all three stories and compared them in just one sentence. I like the language and the writing you used to make readers understand.“All of the three stories share a common setting which is a poor neighborhood where people can’t even afford to live”. Your stories are really amazing and I can’t wait to read what you will write next.
Dear El-Hassn : I am impacted by your essay, “Racial Wealth Gap and Education,” because you show the connection between the stories and also about real life. One set of lines that you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Social class rank you and make you more or less worth because society perceives you in that way. The racial inequality in the U.S. exists because of practicing discriminating laws for a long time against minority until today. The poor neighborhood and in general poor people in the U.S. don’t get a good education, which contributes to making them poorer. ” I think this is really powerful because it is our reality. Also you make connections to the past of the U.S and the stories. Another sentence that I felt was: “The wealth inequality in the U.S. makes a blockade on the people’s color because it forces them to live in a slum area and provide worthless education for their children, and it doesn’t allow them to achieve social mobility.” This stood out for me because it made me think about how I felt right about going to college being part of a minority. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because you are a great writer and your writing is really powerful to change people’s minds.
Dear El-hassan I am impressed by your literary analysis “Racial Wealth Gap and Education” because you describe the issues that people face in the USA. You bring the opinion of the three texts that have a common connection. The details that you mentioned are specific that show the evidence respect of the lesson that you want to give to the readers. One set of the lines that stands out for me is; “how it is like to be from a disadvantaged background and life in poverty. They show how the way you perceive the surrounding environment influences your perspective.” This line describes the opinion about the environment and society affect people where people act respect to the influences like personal and private. And also the disadvantages that people have the education and economics are the issues most important to focus on there. Another sentence that I impacted was; “The sad truth that the poor neighborhood in the U.S. receives a bad quality education which disqualifies them to enter college. We, people, should work together to guarantee an affordable life for everyone.”This stood out for me because you used repiticion on your analysis with specific points that are important for us. This analysis helps to understand some literary elements that have the three stories on the way that you explain. Thanks for your post. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you continue to post interesting analysis or texts like this one.
Dear El-Hassn I am fascinated by your analysis, “ Racial Wealth Gap and Education,” because you really show how poor people struggles to gain education. Therefore how the characters environment influence them. One set of lines that stands out for me is, “ The three stories above demonstrate that education is important because it opens our minds. Not only that, but it helps us to raise an informed generation. The wealth inequality in the U.S. makes a blockade on the people’s color because it forces them to live in a slum area and provide worthless education for their children, and it doesn’t allow them to achieve social mobility.” I think these lines are thoughtful because you deeply explain the context of being poor affect your ability to educated. Another paragraph that stands out for me is, your introduction because your explain all the three stories before your started to analyzed them this can helped the reader to have an idea what you are analyzing. Thanks for this thoughtful analysis I look forward to seeing what you make next.
I am astonished by your short story, “Mom Obligation” because it reinforces the cruel environment of living as an African American at this time. It also shows the power of education and how it could change minds.
One set of lines that stands out for me is, “I only had the opportunity to be a slave who has sold like an objec…[Read more]
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.
