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.
Milton, thank you for writing this piece entitled “I stand with Angela”. I have never heard of Angela Davis before, but now I know that she is an underappreciated Civil Rights Activist. I don’t hear a lot about activists relating poverty to criminal activity, but this concept is important to me because I think it is important to understand how circumstance has an effect on outcome. One way that you could improve on your writing is that you could increase the variety of vocabulary you have used. However, keep up the good work and I look forward to reading more from you.

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.
