From your project, I can tell that his religion is very important to him. I hope that he stays healthy and happy through This COVID 19 pandemic. Thank you for sharing your grandfather’s story with us.
Your relationship with your mother seems to be filled with love and devotion. It sounds like she is very special to you. I think you are very brave to have come to this country without your mom and dad. I hope they keep their mask on and I hope you all can be together again very soon. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
This is a very special friendship. I would like to hear more about why you guys are such good friends. I also have had friends that were like family to me, so I know how important a best friend can be. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of our friends. Great Job!
I love that your grandmother at first said all of the memories she has had with you are great. She sounds like a very special person. It is very good that you are still close with her even though you live apart. She is being very safe by wearing a mask when she goes out! I hope she stays healthy and happy during this time of COVID. Thank you…[Read more]
Great Job on your project! The use of guards to keep people from leaving their homes is very interesting and scary. I’m happy that your friend is not suffering during the lock down and I’m happy you two are able to keep in touch using social media. I hope that everyone in your community back home is safe and healthy. Thank you for sharing this with us.
I’m so sorry that your friend , Ariel has lost a loved one to COVID19. You two sound like really good friends. I’m impressed that you guys were able to keep in touch regularly during the lockdown. Good job!!!
I’m very happy that your grandmother is doing well during this COVID pandemic. Your relationship with your grandmother reminds me of when I used to watch soap operas with my grandmother, but instead of soda we would eat ice cream. Great Job on your oral history project!!!
This is a very interesting project. Reading about and listening to your sister makes me want to visit Guinea one day. Your country sounds beautiful and you and your sister are very beautiful people. Please tell her to keep supporting the orphans and other members of the community as much as she can during this COVID pandemic. Great Job!!!
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.
