How I Use It
For this year I began by showing it to my students and offering them an extra credit opportunity for posting some writing. I wanted them to publish their writing to a broader audience.
Later on, another teacher from a different district used the space to collaborate on a writing project both of our classes did and each of our students gave feedback to students that were not in their class. It was a great experience!
Youth Voices is a great platform for sharing writing and receiving feedback from other writers. I really appreciate the fact that students can connect with other students of the same age. It is simple for students to use and the set-up is not time consuming. The best feature is the research components it offers to students.
