Why must such a fun word have such a negative denotation? We have been bamboozled! Cheated! Swindled! A word such as bamboozled cannot possibly mean to deceive someone, and yet, it does. But the meaning of this
Have to say after reading this “bamboozled” might just be my new favorite word! This post put a huge smile on my face and I’ll be looking for every opportunity to put “bamboozled” to good use….even if I must do the bamboozling myself. ;)))
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.
