I am surprised about your poem “My Favorite Places , People and Things” because it is a little like my country. People think the same ways and have similar sayings.For example people in my country also work hard and they don’t like to spend money on things that is not very important and if you insist they’ll slap you.
Dear Esther Mongani I am happy to read your poem, “Who I Am and Where I’m From”, because I like to know other people and their culture. That’s help me to know new things and make new friends. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I am from avoiding Halloween, the day of the witches, ghosts, and evil” I think this is Interesting because it’s new for me. I avoid Halloween too because we don’t celebrate in our country nobody know what’s halloween. Another sentence that I good was “ I am from not liking cheese and other American things, from only eating things from my country.” This stood for me because most of America’s food I don’t like. Because before I was veg and it’s hard to eat Non-veg. Your Poem reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I went to Mexico so I didn’t know about their culture that time so hard for me. Then I thought I need to learned little beat about every country so if I meet foreigner or I’ll be visit other country that will be help me. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because It’s so interesting and I learned new things. I like your thoughts and how you wrote. It’s good to write about yourself and your culture so other people will know.
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.
