Student Blog ELA 11 and AP Language


This page is a more permanent home for the post from 5/17/17.  These a full list of links for all our sites if you scroll down.  My students and I were inspired by KQED’s Do Now project to create sites that invite conversations on topics that matter to them.  We understand that these topics connect to a variety of issues in communities today, and we want these sites to provide space for students at Royal Oak High School – or anywhere else – to share their perspectives and discuss their ideas about these issues in a civic-minded manner as a way of moving our communities forward through the challenges we face.

How can you use these sites?

Visit them.  If you see one that sparks your interest or that you feel strongly about, read about the issue.  Take a look at the hashtag for the site on Twitter, or read the comment thread, or both, and see what others have said about the topic.  Then add your voice to the conversation.
