Thanks for your comment. My shadow box is really special for me. It took me and my mom 2 days to complete it. Almost all of the objects in my shadow box are from my house. The rock-shaped objects represent how I am hard to change who I am. I like who I am and I don’t want to change that. I chose to include roses because they go with L…[Read more]
I am aware of what is happening. I agree that we should do something to teach people that they can go to college even if they have no money. Your post stands out to me because I have seen many people that have not gone to college because they have no money. I do agree with your post because it is really sad that a lot of kids don’t get…[Read more]
My name is Mauro Delpino. I am a senior at Fremont High School in Oakland, California. My teacher gave us a list of students who had to do a Shadow Box project and she also gave us links so as a class we can appreciate them. I chose to comment on your post because I liked your inclusion of religion, culture and a clear counter narrative. Your shadow box is well-decorated and the box in general is colorful. I appreciate the amount of effort put into this project.
Nonetheless, I have a few questions for you:
How long did it take you to construct your project?
What do the rock-shaped objects represent?
What did you chose to include roses?
Ultimately, I admire and respect your shadow box and I can’t wait to see your future projects.
Thanks for your comment. My shadow box is really special for me. It took me and my mom 2 days to complete it. Almost all of the objects in my shadow box are from my house. The rock-shaped objects represent how I am hard to change who I am. I like who I am and I don’t want to change that. I chose to include roses because they go with La Virgen de Guadalupe. I have a question for you. What objects would you include if you were to make a shadow box. Thanks for reading my post.
I am sad with your post because this a really sad thing that is happening. We should all stay together and fight against racism. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “this country is at peace with one another.” I agree with you because I also wish that this can happen one day and we can live peacefully. Another sentence that…[Read more]
I also feel bad about all the racism that is happening. Your post makes me feel sad because it makes me remember all of the racism that I have heard about. One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is “this country is at peace with one another.” I think this is an awesome thing to dream about. I have also thought about this. Another…[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.
