I am thrilled with your essay “My life made me good at standing up for what’s important”. I thought it was really emotional ,and amazing. I thought this because i know it must had been really hard speaking about your little brother, yet you did it anyways, this shows how brave you are!
One sentence you wrote that stand out to me is ,”and also like coming to school because you get to find out many different personalities that can influence you to make good or bad decisions in your own life that can take you a long way or leave you where you stand”. I think phrase is really great because as teens we should know what type of people we want to hang out with and if it’s going to change and help us in a good way.
Another sentence that i loved was “many people in my life said they were going to take care of me and be there for me didn’t do what they said they were going to do so i had to do it for myself”. I loved this! This stood out for me because this conveys sometimes you only have yourself which can be difficult.
Your esssay reminds me of something that happened to me. One time i had a friend that i thought would be by my side forever. She told me she had my back through thick and thin. But then she just stopped talking to me for no reason, i felt horrible but at the end i realized people come and go and we just gotta deal with it.
Thanks for your writing. I look foward to seeing what you write next beacuse this one was really interesting and i enjoy reading this.
I am overwhelmed by your poem ‘’The Pain It Takes To Love’’because…when many people read your poem they will know and understand that love is not just something to play with and you can seriously be hurt or damage by the pain you feel of wanting love and the people you have love for.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “L…[Read more]
People have trust issues because they took the time out to open up and to let people get to know them and understand them. It takes a lot out of a person when they put their life out to someone they don’t know; i
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.
