Dear Nathaniel :
I am Incredibly amazed of your essay structure and your format. You state what is going on with famous
activist Angela Davis and the award she was nominated for from the Civil Rights Institute. I feel that this
essay was relevant to the fact that she was very bold to step up to the plate and stand her ground for Civil
I am moved by your “I Stand With Angela,” because it gave me a clearer understanding of who Angela davis is and what she did for the black population. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Angela Davis deserves the award because of the hard work and dedication she has put into her race and culture. As an activist, scholar and educated black women, Angela Davis wanted and still wants equality. ” I think this is wonderful because this made me aware of her role in our society and how dedicated she is. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.
I enjoyed reading your “I Stand With Angela” article, it helped me understand way more about Angela Davis and how much of a great person she is. I also agree with your claim about how Angela Davis should get the award she was nominated for.
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.
