The First Part Last is a book that will change your opinion of having a baby at a young age and protect yourself from it. This boy named Bobby has a baby at the age of 16 named Feather. Before Feather Bobby used
I am fascinated about your letter “Part two of The First Part Last” because you show a plethora of information about the book , it also shows you are concerned about what’s going on and you’re trying to help others by preventing being a young parent.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “This is important because Bobby spends too much time with his daughter so that when he somewhere she is going to cry”. I think is confusing because you are kind of contradicting yourself because It seems like the mother of the baby is not being with the baby but how is Bobby being such a bad father ?, if his with the baby all the time and taking her to daycare and going to school?
Another sentence that I agreed was “I will be looking forward to reading …this book can change people’s thinking of having a baby” This stood out for me because I think is a good way to spread a message to focus on school and not the streets like Bobby in the book.
I strongly agree with you that is a book that will change your opinion of having a baby at a young age. One reason I say this is because I’m a young mom but is never impossible , i think is really how much people are matured and what they are willing to do when you have a problem like this. Is hard but not impossible and if you’re not ready is best to stay in school and not in the streets.
Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because situations like this are important to talk about.
I am amazed about this poem. Part two of the first part last . I was amazed because Bobby had a baby at a young age.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is” This boy named Bobby has a baby at the age of 16 named Feather. Before Feather Bobby used to escape from school and have fun with his friends K-boy and J.L.” I think this is upset because Bobby needs to have a good future for himself to take care of his daughter Feather. “Angela Johnson might leave a reader feeling bad because he is just a kid that does whatever he wants to get out from school with his friend and he has a baby and it is hard for him to take care of her but the good thing is that he is doing his best to protect his baby”. I stood that this will make people feel bad because he is very young to have a kid, and to live the life he lives. Thanks for you writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your stories are interesting , and your stories are about things that’s going in some peoples life.
In this world women fight for what is best for them and their family. Some people think that women can’t do what a man can do and they are wrong. The 1920s were a good time for women because it was a roaring
Hey Luis, I totally agree with your sentiment that during the roaring 20’s women’s ideology completely changed as an entire society. With more creativity stemming from women mind, our society greatly benefits. An interesting article that tracks the history of feminist movements is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feminist_movements_and_ideologies
Hi Luis, I agree with your statement that during the 1920’s women were more free spirited in society and were becoming different. Women became more creative and became for self sufficient. They started to be themselves and do what they wanted to do they didn’t stick to what society wanted them to be. here’s in interesting article about women in the 1920’s https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zt8ftyc/revision/2.

Hi Luis, I totally agree that women can do just as much as men. We are learning about the 1920s and reading The Great Gatsby in class right now, and I find flappers particularly interesting. They were really bold and brave to break out of the mold that society put them in, and do what they really wanted to do. I especially liked their choice of fashion, their short dresses and hair were really unique and fun. What did you find most interesting about flappers?

In the morning when I wake up I do some exercises to stretch my body. Some people will find this routine or my routine weird because some people in the morning wake up tired and don’t want to do anything. I do
Hi Luis, it is great that you have such an organized daily routine. I have a daily routine as well. I find that stretching and doing exercises in the morning is a great way to wake up and not weird at all. It seems like you are quite busy after school. When do you find the time to do your homework and study?
Sport is an activity involving physical skill. It can be individual or on a team that competes against others for entertainment. Sports can also help you in your daily life. For example, doing yoga, playing
The world is changing fast just like people and that is interesting. People have changed this world in different ways that you can’t imagine. People move to the United States to make our lives easier in different
I am Intrigued with your post “Why do people move to the United States from the Dominican Republic”. Because in the 3rd paragraph , what you said was really related to me . I also came from the Dominican Republic didn’t know English and had to go to school and learn it . One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is “.Two weeks later my mother put me in a school named P.S.19 where I started learning English as my second language for the future and to defend myself in a conversation and know what to say back”. I think this is interested because as i said i came from Dominican Republic knowing no English. Another sentence that stands out for me is ” police from DR: they will catch you doing bad but the thing is, if you pay some money to them they leave you alone for some fast cash. In my country not that many people make or have a good future”. This stood out for me because when i went back to DR my brother got pulled over and my brother just gave him $20 Dollars and the cop let us go. Thanks for writing . i look forward to seeing what you write next because i like the way you explained how our country not many people can make it out of there .
Luis, I really loved your post about emigration from the Dominican Republic. What sparked my attention and intrigued me the most was when you said, “Many people come to this country to protect their families to have a better life in another place because their country doesn’t have a good president or for the need of food or money”. This statement is what resonated with me the most because although I was born in United States this is exactly why my parents came here from their native country in Latin America. This mass exodus that has taken place through many decades is the result of corruption and lack of resources for the poor in our native countries, thus causing people to flee in order to provide better futures for their families. on that same note, I would like to refer you to an article with statistics about Latin American migration to the United States throughout different time periods: https://www.migrationpolicy.org/article/frequently-requested-statistics-immigrants-and-immigration-united-states
Hopefully this can spark new thought and possibly another post from you on this topic.
From what I read, I can’t really relate to the author as i was born in the US but come from two immigrant parents. But the story and reason on why Dominican republic people come to the US is practically the same as Mexican people or any country people such as the North Koreans,China,India,cuban, and many more just because there’s a lack of food,jobs,awful unfair laws,corrupted cops and presidents or leaders, the killing,wars. So i do agree when Luis states “here are some reasons why people come to the United States from dominican Republic. Because they are trying to have a new change in another place, make a future for their family”. Everyone wants to live a life without trouble or fear losing their family just because of the bad condition of their country and it’s understandable why they chose the United States because its a country with freedom,good laws,great jobs, and opportunities to have a better life. Just wished that people who came here from suffering areas did not have such a bad country with corruption or short food storages so they can live happily and great in their own country.
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.
