I think your post was very informational because it tells me about Propp 13 and how it lowers the amount of money we have to pay through taxes. A line that stood out to me was People who have been in their homes for many years and have paid rent every month should be able to keep a steady price because I believe this also and think…[Read more]
The Oracle Arena or better known as The Roaracle arena has held most of the best Warriors accomplishments and memories. According to the article, “Warriors will soon play in San Francisco, but they’re not aba
Dear jacob, I liked reading this article because you gave two different thoughts about the move. I agree with the fact that the city feels abandoned. I feel the warrios gave Oakland more importance then what it has and now its taken away. Anyway thank you, I enjoyed reading your article.
Dear Jacob, I liked how well detailed your article is. The part that I liked and agree with is that Oakland might feel abandoned if they don’t have their basketball team, no more. I really enjoyed reading and commenting on your article.
The items,pictures and words I put in my shadow box represent me and the dominant narratives I encounter everyday. In my box I also put the counter narratives that I use to fight against the opinions/perceptions
I am very proud of you for making this Shadow Box. One of my favorite things of it is the picture of Jahseh in the box. I really look up to him and I know, as your friend, we both, mourned his death. Also the Warriors banner means a lot to Oakland so I’m glad you added that as well. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to what you have next in store. You have a lot of potential as a person in general.
Hello! I am a freshman at San Jose State University. I really admire your work ethic. This shadow box is really inspiring and you attempting to break the stereotypes is amazing. I wish you good luck on your dream! I really enjoyed reading your shadow box!
I am a student at San Jose State University. I really enjouyed reading your piece for your shadow box. I really liked how you want to go against and break common stereotypes to do what you enjoy doing. You have to keep pushing for it no matter how hard the pressure gets. You can accomplish it as longs as you put your mind to it. You’ve got this.
My name is Moi and I am a student at San Jose State University. I really like your shadow box. I can tell by your aspirations in life that you do not care about what other people think about you. That’s a really inspiring mindset, and not a lot of people can say the same. I noticed XXXTentacion in your box, and though I do not listen to his music, I know he helped a lot of people through really tough times. It’s important to have these times of role models, especially in times like this. I hope you achieve your dream; you got this!
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.
