This time we worked in a team to create a magazine to show the cultural and environmental information in the minority we chose. Working in a group I am proud that my groupmates worked really well when we’re making the magazine. We did better than I imagined, everyone is flexible and making good work out of it. I could’ve worked better on my writing. I need to work on my tenses and making connections with the environment to cultural. I learned that using ‘why is where important’ can help describe the place more vivid, and learning that my tenses and my grammar really needs improvement. I am really proud of my team on how hard they worked, and I had a lot of fun working with them.

Who you really are

 

Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech is very touching story including romance, adventures, and some touching events. This story contains many layers of story, like her friend Phoebe’s story, and even a little story of her grandparents. And I created a book cover to let you see the motifs. What I find the motif is the repeating journeys she’s been going on. So, the protagonist Salamanca or Sal is on a journey with her grandparents to find her mom. And all those journey actually changed her identity, so there is also kind of a dynamic character in this story. For example, at the beginning of the book she said: “-“If [mother] was happy, [Sal] was happy. If [mother] was sad, [Sal] was sad” (Creech 38). She really misses her mother, because she couldn’t believe that her mom has died. But while the story goes on she realizes she could also be happy without her mom being beside her. And all of this would lead to a theme. The theme is actually mentioned during the story and it is also explained why, “don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins…… ‘I know what it means,’ [Sal] said. ‘I’ve heard my father use it lots of times. I used to imagine that there were two moons sitting in a pair of Indian shoes, but my father said it means that you shouldn’t judge someone until you’ve walked in their moccasins. Until you’ve been in their shoes. In their place’” (Creech 61). What I think of the theme is struggles are hard, but it could help find who you really are. Meaning sometimes struggles are not that bad. Just like Sal, she’s struggled through all this and then realized that she could move on with her life without her mom.

Compare and Contrast || Iranian Revolution

 

I compared pages 50 and 51 from the book Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi to the article called “The White Revolution: ‘Plagued by the West'”. In two writings both share some similarities and differences.
For similarities, both are using compound and simple sentences, and both have lengthy sentences. In two articles there is not much of figurative language, both doesn’t have any sound device. The purpose of both writings are the same, both want to tell us what happened during the Iranian revolution, but using two different ways. Persepolis is using her own childhood to tell us what happened, and Plagued by the West is a non-fiction telling us what happened.
Even though there are many similarities, there are also many differences. For example, the tone, word choice, and structure.

From Dictatorship to Dictatorship

These words will tell you who I am: lover of Mossadegh; hater of the Shah; lover of freedom, hater of the government. I am a daughter, a sister, a lover, a mother, a protest. I am Madonna Ahadi.

After the revolution, several things stayed the same and a lot changed. The violence still continued, the guards are still killing protesters, no peace was in Iran. Repression was high, people had no free speech or political opposition. Although many stayed the same, some things still changed. For example, the government was stronger, it has changed from monarchy to a theocracy. Before the revolution, because the western influence, we were living all like an American. Women doesn’t need to wear veils and even have political rights. After the revolution, Khomeini got rid of all the western influence, changed all the rules back. Women now no longer have political rights and all need to wear a veil.

OneDay-Dance

We danced to the song ‘Playing with fire’ from Blackpink. One of our members didn’t know how to dance, so we helped her and she improved a lot. The positioning was hard, because we had no idea how to, and some of the moves we a little confusing so some we have to choreograph ourselves. I will try to choreograph my own dance next time, if I have a chance to. We learned most of the dance, and I am very proud of my groupmates.

The Psychotic Journey

I made a poster about the book Alice by Christina Henry, and the quotes I’ve chosen shown how the protagonist Alice changed during the story. “When they found her all she would say was, ‘The Rabbit. The Rabbit. The Rabbit.’ Over and over. When she acted like that they said she was mad. Alice knew she wasn’t mad. Maybe. “(Henry 1). At first Alice seemed fragile and sick because she wakes up in a hospital, mentally sick, and when the story goes on she develops and became a tough women hero that takes down the Jabberwocky:

“‘You mean murder and eat,’ Alice said.
‘No, I mean eat and murder,’ the rat said. ‘I’d rather it the other way around, wouldn’t you?’
‘I’d rather it not all all,’ Alice said.” (Henry 165).

From the book we are all know, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, Alice is a sweetheart, she is lovely and a exquisite character, and she seems harmless. But the Alice over here is a very different character, she can kill her opponents before they even notice her. Alice became very broken but she doesn’t want to be fixed, so she turned into a very brave and astounding.

Slavery For Debt

This is a poster i made based from the book “Hidden Girl” by Shyima Hall with Lisa Wysocky. This book is about Shyima writing about her past. I thought of a theme for this, and had a couple of quotes to support my idea. The story is about Shyima has been sold into slavery and how she had been through all the hard times during slavery, eventually she got out because it was illegal to have slavery in the United States. She really cherish the life she has now because it is so much better than before.

Journal #4

We finished out infomercial, and our final plan is making the slim warm instead of making an object warm. Since the slime is endothermic, it means that it absorbs heat. So we place it on a warm surface to allow it to absorb heat, in order to be warm. We don’t want the slime to be too slimy and sticky because we are holding it and sticking it on to things. We wanted it to be thick, but also making it comfortable to hold on. The one thing we could fix is, every time we take the slime out of the plastic bag, it becomes very sticky and hard to come off your hands, but if you ply with it a little, it becomes better. So if we add more liquid starch and guar gum it might become better.
