This comic is a good piece of work. The graphic weight I noticed was you stading near a couple buildings and just standing there as if you are thinking. Also the part where your comic charcter says you have a chance not alot of people have was good grphic weihgt.
What an interesting piece you have Marlon. I like that you have poured your heart into this piece and to why you were quiet. This sentence interests me, “Most of the time I choose to be antisocial and lonely.” most of the times all of us have gone through that and it gives us insight about were we are as a person. Great job at making…[Read more]
I am interested in your poem, I’m ____ As Hell, because I believe that curiosity is something that we need in our lives. I believe this because if we don’t have this part of us then we would never be able to do the things we do, we would have never discovered the things we have discovered, or we would have never adapted or be how we are. curiosity is something we need and it helps us become better and stronger.
I was actually curious to read your poem, it flows nicely. Have you heard the saying, curiosity killed the cat? I am the cat because i wanted to know what you were trying to say, and it makes sense. I appreciate your curiosity of things and asking questions and the positives of being curious.
I like how you’re name doesn’t stop you for being who your are and what you do. That in you’re own way, you cherished your name and the significance to how you interpret it. However, the most important part of your piece that caught my attention is “Even if my name means something that isn’t me, I wouldn’t change it because the iro…[Read more]
Hello my name is Joe Espinello. What could Joe mean? Joe a name that is used in many movies of classic and comedy. One of the many things that Joe means is coffee. You could think that coffee is like a cup of Joe.
I really enjoyed reading your piece because it was very entertaining and made me laugh. I never noticed how unique your name was until this and it was really cool to learn the different meanings of your name and what your nicknames used to be.
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.
