Dear Christina, Thank you for reading my poem. I wanted to address when you said that ” I thought this was a strong topic to talk about because all around Oakland and many other places lots of people are facing homelessness.” I thought this interesting because you addresed that there’s homeless people not just in oakland but other places too
Dear Martha,Thank you for reading my shadow box. I wanted to address what you said for example you said “another sentence that stood out to me was when you wanted to have no F’s and I see you in PLT already working on that pathway Good luck I know you can achieve your goals. ” This stood out to me because you show that you care.SIncereley, Ulises
Is ICE really needed to control immigrants? ICE stands for immigration customs enforcement and they have over 20,000 agents and 400 offices in the U,S. They also go to certain cities to arrest immigrants that
Great job on your poem about love I liked the part where you said “my muscles keep me strong when i’m low” that line shows that your strong enough to not go down. Another thing that I liked was when you did a simile on the kline “Happy is where I see your face face like an angel that can’t leave me.An angel like a guardia…[Read more]
I enjoyed how you express how you see homelessness in Oakland. I thought this was a strong topic to talk about because all around Oakland and many other places lots of people are facing homelessness. Something that you could do better on is rhyming your poem or is repeating a word to make it flow clearly. But overall I like how this was like a statement about what prices raising are making people homeless.
Sincerely, Christina A.

You also showed pictures of you and showed that you were confident. One last thing that I liked was how you showed stereotypes for example you showed girls in dresses and they don’t…[Read more]
I liked your box because you represented the stereotypes that society puts on you. Also another thing that I liked was that you put all the things you like and the things you are for example you put “caution whiz kid at work” I thought that was pretty cool.
This shadow box represents that I am a Good Brother,Straight and a Mexican. When people look at me, they see the Dominant Narrative which is that I am a young Hispanic.They, might also see that my future is being
One sentence that stood out to me in your artist statement was when you stated you wanted society to see you as a good brother that’s really adorable. To add on, another sentence that stood out to me was when you wanted to have no F’s and I see you in PLT already working on that pathway Good luck I know you can achieve your goals. Thanks for your artist statement and shadow box. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because this work was really great to look at.
You rock!! Sincerely, Martha
I am fascinated by your box because you used a big Mexican flag to represent your home country. I also like that you used an American flag on the other side of your box, even tho its small it shows were you live and were you life started. In addition I like how you put the oakland tree in your box because it…[Read more]
Hello my name is Pita Mavae and I go to Fremont High School and I would say that your Shadow Box is very good it shows that you have love and care for your family.
I don’t really have any questions but I would say you did a very good job on this project.
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.
