Hi, Jackalyn! I believe American culture cannot be defined as one thing. As a country, we have many beliefs that cross others, but we should be able to overlook our differences and work together as one for a better country.

Mae, I thought your article was very intriguing. I have also always wondered if we live in a multidimensional world. I’ve never thought about it in a way that there could be another world that is within ours though. I have always thought about if there was another universe beyond ours. What do you think?

It was a very interesting read and has a lot of connections to what you wrote about above. I’d be interested to see if you find more information on this topic and if you do I will definitely read it! Good response!
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.
