(Jul 31 2020 10:54AM) : Janelle is asking good questions here about connecting youth across different classrooms. Her questions lead me to others. more

What’s getting in the way of the group that Janelle refers to here from making their students’ work easily accessible to the students in the Youth Voices/NowCoomment community? What resources art they looking for? I want to know more about what they have tried that has been successful and what would make Youth Voices and NowComment more useful to them. I feel like we have many of the resources that Janelle is looking for, and I wonder what she and her group find lacking. What else do they see a need for and can we build that together?

Grace R (Jul 30 2020 12:07PM) : Recently arrived students would not have this background knowledge about previous U.S. Presidents. more

They could, however, think and write about their own ideas related to what it takes to lead a whole country, what leadership (positive or negative) have they experienced in their home country… etc. I appreciate that this curriculum, like the work of the Writing Project, asks students to enter from where they are and move towards the bigger ideas from that point.

(Jul 30 2020 2:46PM) : How can we make Vote by Design an asynchronous set of experiences that can connect youth around these materials anywhere, anytime? more

We have some of the answers to this question. To use Sam Ball’s “American Creed” as an example, we could do something like this for Vote by Design: https://www.lrng.org/american-creed/playlist/writing-our-future-american-creed
Staying with “American Creed” this is how we could build responses to the videos in the Vote by Design curriculum: https://nowcomment.com/documents/117013
And here’s how we can use Youth Voices to amplify youth writing and media and their conversations: https://www.youthvoices.live/category/civic-engagement/american-creed/
Here’s a prototype of what we could do on NowComment with one set of materials from Vote by Design: https://nowcomment.com/blogs/210887

Grace R (Jul 30 2020 12:18PM) : The need to insure safety and trust in the group sharing more

Great point here – students will need to be familiar with safe and respectful ways to respond to each other. So this should come after some community building has already happened in the remote/in person classrooms.

Lisa Kay Solomon will share with us the story of how she and her colleagues at the Stanford d.school developed the resource Vote by Design, “a non-partisan learning experience designed to promote civic engagement and agency among all voters.” Filmmaker Sam Ball is one of the founders of Citizen Film. Sam’s film American Creed (2018) features a “range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides.”

I am interested in how teachers of recently arrived ELLs in a high school setting can preface this work so their students have the scaffolds needed to engage with these important ideas.
