Im am a student from Life Academy, and I agree with that a lot of people have experienced racism and has affected many people. One sentence that stands out to me is: ” Another solution to getting rid of Racism is having everyone learn about other people and their culture too. Not assuming things that you don’t really know about people.” I think this is really strong because even those people do racism they need to learn how to control themselves and not hurt people. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I love how you express yourself about this topic and maybe others too.
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.
