I agree that cyberbullying is a big problem in society nowadays and I find you guys showing awareness on social media very inspiring. But what about adults oppressing teens? Overall this was great and it shows you guys have a passion for what you’re writing.
I honestly say that cyberbullying is a greater issue than regular bullying cause it’s easier to get away with it. This is especially common in america because of all these kids and teens that have technology.
I feel like cyber bulling is going to continue. Although it can be slowed down. There are a bunch of resources like parents, teachers, groups and much more. What I want to know is that what do you think is the best way to identify cyberbullying?
Dear Nevin and Fernando,
I am moved by your letter,”Cyber Bullying Is Actual Bullying,” because teens are unaware of the hurt it can really damage people. Our society believes that when bullying happens through a screen it won’t hurt as much it would in person. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “The issue on the internet is that people are more careless when using the internet than the real world.” I think this is powering because it’s true for this society. Many people in this generation use the internet to get away from the real world and be someone else without really knowing the harm it can lead to others. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you demonstrate the truth through your writing. Also from the beginning you state to whom it might relate to which helps a lot. For example you state dear teens which is true because teens are mainly the problem here.
This 9$ Million Dollar Budget cut affects all schools in the OUSD district because all schools in the district in a whole will lack materials, and maybe will be less efficient at educating students.
I am moved by your post about the types of violence in Oakland because this is something that happens all too much and too often in many low-income communities throughout Oakland. One sentence that you wrote stood out to me was, ” Domestic Violence can shape how a child will act and behave when he/she grows up, resulting in having depression, guilt, shame and sleep disturbances. I think that this is very much accurate because I have seen instances in past studies where children who have been exposed to domestic violence end up having some sort of depression that impacts their lives in a negative way. I appreciate you bringing domestic violence to the light because this problem is affecting the lives of millions of kids throughout the world. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like your way of expressing your opinions on the types of violence in Oakland.
I’m very impressed with your level of work. Your blog called Types of Violence in Oakland is a very good blog it really shows some true emotion. It really shows the type of person you are and how you care about Oakland. It shows that you are trying to make oakland a better place for everyone. One sentence that you wrote that really stands out to me is “Domestic Violence can shape how a child will act and sleep behave when he/she grows up, resulting in having depression, guilt, shame and disturbances (Domestic Violence Roundtable)”. I think that is a really strong part of your blog and it shows real emotions and how domestic violence can change someone’s life. Thank you for writing and I hope to read some more of your amazing posts.
Dear Nate, I also have heard about Finland getting rid of homework and now being considered being one of the most smartest countries in the world. Both arguments about homework beneficial and unbeneficial have a lot strong evidence on both sides.
My shadow box shows a Mexican flag which represents that I am Mexican American. My Dominant Narrative about my Mexican flag is that Mexicans arrived into the US illegally and that we are criminals. My counter
This post of your shadow box intrigued me, how you talked about other peoples perspectives on mexicans, why do you believe that other people say that Mexicans are criminals? Next you said that your older brother likes to drive you around town, what do you enjoy when you guys driver together? Lastly, you spoke upon coming from Oakland, and how society and other places see use as criminals, how can we prevent people from labeling us as these “criminals”? I really like your post, I hope you keep it up and I’m looking forward to your next post, brother from another letter.
Hi, my name is Ingri and I am a 9th grader at Fremont High School. My grade did the same project as you. I really like how you explained that your brother is like a friend too you. I like the picture that says Oakland because that represents you and where you live.
This post about your about your shadow box was cool because you explained the different stereotypes you as a Mexican and from Oakland have to experience and it’s important because everyone who was born and raised in Oakland are considered dangerous like you explained in your statement. I really like your post, I look forward to your next post
I really like the way you have you box and how you show yourself about you being Mexican American. I really think that your car was a very strong object because you explain what you do in car and most people see Mexican like people that would do illegal things when driving but what your wrote about yourself shows that those comments are not true for everyone. Thank you for posting this this it really shows how you feels and how you really are.
I agree with your ideas about banning firearms to keep people safe. when you talked about police brutality made me feel like nobody is safe from the police because they have the power to do anything they want with minor consequences.
hi my name is elvin i am writing from fremont high school.
you do a very great job with your shadowbox i like how you express yourself.
what do you respond when that people said the mexican are criminals and bad person.
i like how your shadowbox box represents mexican people.
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.
