A study group for teachers using YouthVoices.net with their students.
Youth Voices is a school-based social network that was started in 2003 by a group of National Writing Project teachers. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. Students are invited to join Play Youth Voices to learn more about being a power user of the site. Teachers will also find tasks to support them in their use of the site.

It is still a work-in-progress. I struggle to know when to invite you in -- because I need your comments -- and when it's too incomplete to make sense. The first three badges under ELA are linked as examples.
