What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word “American”? You’re a cold-blooded liar if you answered anything except “a big bald eagle”. The eagle represents everything Americans stand for: soaring
Your take on eagles and how they relate to freedom was a very interesting one. I do agree that eagles are a symbol for freedom in America but inferring what people think based on what they say is not a very good way to support your evidence. Here’s an article that can back up your claim of how an eagles are a symbol of freedom with more substantial evidence (Celebrating America’s Freedom). It talks about the eagle appearing on the American flag as well as on billions of one dollar bills making it a very important symbol for America. I hope you find this article helpful and I hope to read more of your work.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading you article “American Means Eagles”. You have a gripping style of writing, that entices readers to continue on till the end. I especially like how you used the description of an Eagle as a parallel to the hard work and the initiative of the American people. Here is a historical account of how the Eagle became the symbol of America that you might find interesting. https://www.history.com/news/how-did-the-bald-eagle-become-americas-national-bird
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.
