One sentence that stood out to me was,”My name has never been something very significant to me, I like it but I don’t really have a personal…[Read more]

I think this an interesting take on a modern version of Romeo and Juliet. I agree that a modern day story would involve races rather than the different kingdoms. I am not sure what the assignment was, but I would love to see this story expanded and brought to life because it is a really interesting one. I think the story of Romeo and Juiiet could be created in a multitude of ways but this type about race is definitely applicable in this day and age. Thank you for your post.
I am moved by your post,¨Can Videogame to Movie Adaptations Work?¨. I am moved because I am a gamer as well and I want there to be a good movie adaptation of a game. One of the sentences you wrote,¨I think that’s why they fall apart, because they can’t make it a game, but they can’t just ignore the game’s audience preference…[Read more]

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.
