I choose these four specific images because I feel as if these images visually give you a more detailed picture in your head about the events that occured to Rios himself. These images make it seem as if it was
Dear Saoronn :
I am intrigued with your post, “What’s Life in 20 Years?,” because when i was younger i once had the same goal as you, which was to become a chef and its always nice to hear someone as passionate as they are with their goals.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Throwout 20 years my life will get harder and harder…[Read more]
Dear Alex :
I am happy to hear about your post, “The life of Ramirez,” because the fact that you don’t have support but you are willing and determined to gain it inspires me to do the same if at some point in my life i don’t have support.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ I will make my family happy more happy than they ever…[Read more]
I enjoyed reading your blog posts. I have never read Victor Rios’ Street Life, but through your description of sensory details, I can tell that it invokes strong emotions from the reader. I agree with you that the strong wording he uses, such as “fleeing” create a vivid picture in the readers mind of the hard life he has lived. Im curious, are there any other sensory details used? Visual, auditory, tactile? These can sometimes be hard to find in books, especially biographies. Also, do you think Victor Rios specifically uses kinesthetic imagery in one part of his book to invoke some feelings and visual to invoke others? Thanks for your post!
Hi Nallely, I am so interested in your topic. I think each kids should get a lot of experience from life and the society. But if they have too much work and hard work to do, they will feel difficult and depressed. Their experience will change them a lot, not only for their body, but also will influence their mind.
I woke up with enough sleep to keep my eyes open, but my body begs to differ. As my vision clears up, I see (with no surprise) my husband dead asleep. Thankfully he doesn’t snore as loud as his parents. Now, I can
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.
