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.
Your memoir is strong and explains who you are today. This piece is a good explaination of how far you have came because of muscle cars and photogrpahy. This memoir helped you realize that photography is a big part in your life and might always be.
This poem is strong, it is very descriptive of what you have a passion for. This also shows the type of person you are and how you feel towards yourself. The part where you put quitting as not being an option shows your persistence in accomplishing what your aiming for.
Dear Kevin, I am glad that you are laidback and do not let the fake people get to you. Where it says “Myself and my mentality is what matters” really resonated to me because I agree with you that’s exactly how it has to be . So yea do ya thang kid.
Dear Kevin, I like how you wrote this poem, it kinda made it seem like you was writing a rap song or something cause you rhymed a bit. Im glad that you don’t care about what others think of you and you don’t let anything get to you. Good job!
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 ⬇️⬇️⬇️
This name memoir is very strong because she explains how she is who she wants to be. Her name is a big part of who she is and how people view her. Everyone calls her by Yaqui except her mother who was the first one to give her, her birth name. The name memoir is a good description of how her name describes who she is.
Your name seems like a heavy weight to carry for you in your family. I’m sorry! But, I agree with this, “Kevin. I have carried on the name with me after him but don’t want to carry the lifestyle that comes with alcohol and disruption. I don’t want to inherit his sorrowful words through the phone.” That won’t be you. It just won’t.
I am fascinated with your name memoir because you had a lot of great information about your name and where it came from. One sentence you wrote that stand out for me is “ I will like to introduce myself after the same name but with a different form of saying It with a different perspective from my family. A name I feel more comfortable in, something that matches me. Kevin can turn into “Kev”, something simple that doesn’t have a huge meaning nor a bad background.” I thinks this is really great because you want to make your name your name not a name in that past that has done a lot of bad things in the past.
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.
