Dear Elia Urias
I am happy to read your post, “Robots: Threat to Humans,” because
I wanted to read about the life with “Robots”. This is interesting for me. I want to know about more this.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is : “I believe that robots will in fact become dangerous at some point and could potentially wipe out human exi…[Read more]
Today we got lots of development in our technology. We can only imagine 50 years ago that we can’t go to moon, but now we visited couples of time on moon. Before it’s take 2 or 3 days to go other place like 100
Dear Esther Mongani
I am happy to read your poem, “Who I Am and Where I’m From”, because I like to know other people and their culture. That’s help me to know new things and make new friends.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I am from avoiding Halloween, the day of the witches, ghosts, and evil” I think this is Interesting…[Read more]
I am from mobile, from technology and battery, electricity.
I am from the Garden that smells always fresh.
I am from the rose, the beauty of flower, more love.
I am from Diwali and Holi.
from Aman and Mohi
I am surprised about your poem “My Favorite Places , People and Things”
because it is a little like my country. People think the same ways and have similar sayings.For example people in my country also work hard and they don’t like to spend money on things that is not very important and if you insist they’ll slap you.
One line that i really liked was when you wrote “The last one is my uncle he always in chill mood. He’s the one guy I love him so much and he also loves me. He never gets angry at me.”I think this is beautiful because you guys love each other and you’re always in a good mood .
One sentence that I hate was “I am from the Rose the beauty of flower more love.” Actually I don’t like flowers because I am allergic to flowers and I think if I want to visit your country I have to ask you first which state doesn’t have a lot of flowers .
Your poem reminds me of something that happened to me on time. I was in the school with my friends and all my friends had a new phone names ITEL and I was the only one who did not have this phone. After school I ask my mom to buy me this new telephone and she told me that she didn’t have the money. I insist but instead of giving me a phone she gave me a slap kkkkkkkkk.
Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because i’ll like to learn more about your country and culture .
It was a very interesting and emotional.Emotional because it took me back with the memory of my home country and family members.I am from Bangladesh and our country is very similar or u can call it twins.I really liked your poem it was full of a lot of memory which was in my head.Thanks for giving that old feeling back.I visited India in 2007-2008 i will love to come back again.
I am interested your by poem and photograph, “My Favorite Places, People and Things” because Iive in New York and we don’t really see things like that in the picture. I also think it’s interesting how you described the garden.
One part of your poem that stands out for me is where you describe the rose and how you add “love” into it too. I think this is fascinating because you added a feeling to a flower giving it personification. I thought how you did that was very original.
Another part that I was interested is where the picture shows the castles reflection in the water. This stood out for me because its as if the castle is seeing its reflection and looking back at itself knowing it belongs their.
Your poem reminds me of something that I made once. One time where i took pictures of an important place that tells me where i come from.
Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because you are original and have an interesting way of seeing things.
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.
