Dear: Rayce I am surprised by your post “Central Texas BMX” because is very interesting that everyone at the track and they are all fun people to be around, and it’s great to have friends through different sports.
One sentences you wrote that stand out me is ¨I love riding my bike at the track¨ because I also love bikes and have had many experiences for example when I started riding a bicycle.
Thanks for you writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your post seems very interesting.
My name is Rayce and my favorite things to do is bmx and drive/work on cars. I was born in Austin Texas. When i got my first bmx bike i never wanted to do anything else other then ride my bike. I have lived
Hi Rayce, I liked your bio post because I also sort of hate school too. Living in a safe place is important and I feel like Austin is safer than a lot of other places, or at least safer than where I used to live in Brownsville.
I was surprised that you ride BMX. I think it looks really crazy, but its cool that you’re very passionate about it. Even though you don’t like writing i hope to read more of it.
He Rayce, I think your bio is really cool and it shows me a clear representation of who you are as a person and what you like to do. I also appreciate how honest you are about the things you don’t like. It doesn’t seem like you lie about who you are and it also seems that you are very passionate about your hobbies. BMX biking sounds crazy dangerous and fun, you should maybe talk more about how you started to get into biking, but great bio overall!
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.
