This mind dump really shows the issues that equality bares, equality is dealt with race, religion, color and rights. This shows that you know that equality isn’t as it seems. I don’t believe in equality in the first place, I believe equity is a more substantial way of thinking, give to those who don’t have and receive when you are in need.
I agree with this because it is showing that you are who you are, there is no turning back, no changing your race. You stand up for yourself and demonstrate who you are, it doesn’t matter what skin tone, or language you speak.
This poem speaks out of passion for what you once used to live in. I love the way you had used “place” and “of” as pieces to show what to pay attention to. The highlight I feel makes people more aware of the meaning of what you are trying to display.
Just as important as it is to be one with yourself , fun brings that out. This is a good description of what it means to have a good time, and how the place around you can change the view of what happiness means to you.
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.
