It was one day when I was in middle school that I went to a field trip, it was a field trip where we stayed overnight in a cabin and explored nature. We were chilling in the cabin when the teachers told us to go
For someone who doesn’t talk much in class, you have a lot to say. Thank you for letting us know a little part of your life and decisions you have made. I also appreciate that you shared “When I’m around my friends I act like I don’t care about the things we do but in reality my real identity is that I do care about the things that I do.” because now we know how you actually feel when your in these type of situations with your friends. I hope to get to read more of your pieces!
My full name is Juan Miguel Alvarado and I also have the same first, last name as my dad. I think my parents named me after my dad because my dad wanted me with the same name as him I don’t know why he
I liked how you expressed what you feel for your name and how your name connects to your dad. Also, I can relate to you because, people call me differently from school and my family. I wonder why your nickname makes you uncomfortable though. Overall, I liked how you wrote about your name and I can tell it means so much to you.
This is a good name memoir especially the fact that you used your name as a Mexican God. Also the fact that you used your whole entire name was a good form of keeping this name memoir strong.
Okay I See You ⬇️⬇️⬇️
I liked how you talked about your name and you talked about what it ment in Mexico and that you talked about how your nickname had a positive and negative meaning to it. That your name connects back to your dad and how you dont know why your dad picked your name.
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.
