I love how you created a box to express all the people and things you love. You did a really great job. It is very aspiring to see the creativity someone has all place together. It shows that you have a lot of pride for who you are and a lot of confidence for sharing it with a lot of people.
I really like some of the objects that you put into your box, Fernando, especially your small tribute to your grandmother. My grandma was someone that meant a lot to me as well, until she died at the age of 99 a couple of months ago. I’m happy that you show her how much she means to you, because I feel like I didn’t tell mine often enough. I also like how you included some of your heritage in your box, because I believe that where you come from always affects the values that you live by and the life that you live. I will look forward to your next post.
Hi my name is fernando and i’m a freshman at LIfe Academy and I saw your post and I really like that you talked about that problem because that is crazy that this kind of stuff is acutlluy happening in our world and people should come toghther to stop these kind of stuff.
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.
