Hi I am a freshman at life academy. I really like your post because it talked about racism. I agree with you because I also live in oakland and there is a lot of racism happening here. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is when you said, “I wish that in the future everyone can understand one another’s culture and see things from multiple perspectives”. I think this stands out because people feel bad that other people don’t like their culture and they feel bad about sharing their culture with other people. Your post reminds me of something that happened to me because I don’t like to share were I come from because I feel that they are going to bully me, just because were I come from. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I think I am going to like your posts.
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.
