This semester we have been treated to some powerful writing by our students at Bret Harte in Oakland.  The student pieces have been thought provoking and well written.

Below are four pieces that were presented at the Bret Harte After School Expo. They just might convince you that we should let the children rule the world, at least for a little while.

Poem: "If I ruled the world" by Dustin

Opinion Writing: "Am I free or not?" by Ethan

Free Write: "Restriction and Liberation" by Calvin

Opinion Writing: "Are humans a virus on Earth?" by Steven
