SLC 2018 PPT – 서소연


These journals had written by a person who was actually living during the French Revolution. A perspective of the journals is a man who belongs with 3rd Estates and a man who externally participates on the French Revolution. By choosing a perspective of a journals as a man who belongs with 3rd Estates, readers could experience what was the actual situation of peasants extra. Also, I could have compare difference between nobles and peasants’ journals by the primary sources. Journals contains a practically perspective of 3rd Estates during the French Revolution.

Following two weeks of our group’s research on the French Revolution, we’ve prepared a gorgeous video that contains organization of the French Revolution. So, the video that we made was to organize the major events of French Revolution by video. And elaborate who was the winner of the revolution. To inform these histories, me and my partner have worked on L21 standards: Critical Thinking, Communication& Collaboration, and Innovation and Creativity. We spend time to make video without bored, tedious and tiresome but with the attractive and interest. That’s why we created stop motion video with contribution of animation.

Theme: Please remember tearful history of your ancestors.

According to the “Bruce Cumings” (Lee Jai-eui 17), you can easily anticipate how brutal and cruel period it was. At that time, a justice was malfunctioning toward merciless politicians. Their mercilessness to citizens was continuing until millions of students in South Korea raised a rebellion. Especially, plenty of students in Kwangju passionately fought against the government. The students’ courage was completely have written on this book. A writer of this non- fiction might have wanted to convey actual histories that happen at this cruel time and don’t let current people forget this major and unforgettable issues.

According to Lee Jai-eui’s study, “All this happened in October 1979” (23). Which means the author was keep elaborating when did it happen. Moreover, the writer’s word selection was fit on what he wants to deliver to the audiences. Since 1980, when the enormous number of students in Kwangju started a demonstration at their school fields and open spaces, the government intercepted all connection that came from other cities. By besieging Kwangju, people who against the government couldn’t receive any supplies and communicate other people outside. All of these worked well by the brutal politicians’ intention and they mercilessly shot any person who participated in a demonstration whether students or not. Hence, thousands of innocent people and teenagers died. What the author wanted to inform us was not memorize all the dates and people who participated in the demonstration on the history. He wished recent people to not forget their tearful works for us. And remind us how could we possible to live in this well-developed country without immense problems.

Therefore, the writer’s message on book aroused recent people’s forgotten memories: innocent ancestors’ death for us. He does not desire us to memorize all events. However, at least he wanted to notify how brutal and cruel period it was and what our ancestors did to create a better quality of life for their descendants which is us.

This is a cover of magazine. The story is The Hunger Games and I was trying to show the conflict of this story, which is person vs society. The protagonist of this story is Katniss Everden and while she was participating on Hunger Game which makes teenagers to join on the game and survive by kill others. So, the picture that I chose could shows the discrimination between rich and people who are living under the poverty line. The gap between rich who are controlling and watching Hunger Game by screen with poor who are forcibly participating on Hunger Games. However, what i wanted to show on this cover is that love could defeat the inequality on society. Katniss Everden break the wall of inequality and that makes huge resistance of people who don’t have equal rights as a human. Bold worlds explain the main idea of below paragraphs. By the quote that post on below of this cover, which is “It is not our fault. We have to change. This should be changed. Where are our rights?”. This is what Katniss Everden talked when we realized the actual inequality that provide to poor. By this quote, I also realized that the inequality are existing and this is absolutely immoral. So, I showed that Katniss Everden’s love breaks the wall of inequality of society. This is the conflict between person and society.

The book what i changed to the movie poster is “The Last Book in the Universe.” This written by Rodman Philbrick. I believe that the rising action in this book is when the Spaz was trying to reach to his sick sister, Bean. Because, half of the book is about the process that Spaz passed threw. Which means, all of that was rising action to bring out the consequence: reach the latch where the Bean is.

In the movie poster, most of the colors are dark which represents ‘destroyed’. And in fact, in the story even the protagonist, Spaz introduce himself with this quote. “The Spaz means the banger.”

and Also, you can see that the Bean said to Spaz and changed his mind by this quote “Even if you die, the story what you wrote will be stay in people minds forever.” So I was trying to express the main color of the book by darkness color images. And the girl represents the Bean and a men who is sitting next to her is the Spaz. I didn’t show their face because, they are not clean as much as normals but they are not dirty and dusty as much as unimproved. So, they are just wearing normal clothes not clean as much but not dirty that much. So, I think i perfectly and vividly shows what the book trying to express.

So Yeon Seo

Discrimination of winter, summer. 
Summer, full of warmness and vivid lives. 
In calm midnight, crystal was a comer.
Winter, full of coolness and makes me dives.

Refreshing and bracing wind touched my foot. 
Frozen nose force me open drowsy eyes. 
Pure- white snow was enough to steel my soot. 
Unconsciously write on glass, I.

The shinning crystals dance in my eyesight. 
Sufficient, force me to put the soft fur.
A loudly throbbing heart let me reach white. 
My body, shivering feeling was stir. 

Missing the warmness, that summer fill in.
Loving the coolness of winter’s feeling. 

Dear. my old and best friend, So Yeon

When you got this letter, it already had been passed a bunch of weeks. But I hope you got this letter as soon as possible!

Did I tell you about my new residence? It’s amazing as you expected. It’s placed on next to the useless circular theater; however, you can feel the warmest feeling by joyful children who are playing around in the theater yard. Even though I don’t have an excessive food or good, the residents’ sweet temper makes me sufficient. Also, their sweet temper makes me dream every second. Also, when the sky is shining with twinkling stars and coolness wind is whispering to me, I can guarantee that I will have the sweetest dream on that night. You know what? I’ve only lived my comfortably warm home for 2 months, but I think I’m a lucky person who met awesome friends at here and got the best place to live in my life.

On the last weekend, two of my friends visited my home. As I always did, I sat on the chair and listened carefully what they’re talking about. After the few minutes, even if I didn’t say anything, I could be expected causes of the conflicts between these two men what were happened by the little accident. While they are fighting, I didn’t say anything. Because I think listening is my the only particular ability that I can give them. All I did was listening to their conversation best as I could and paying attention to them. And then, they solved their problem and said, “Thank you for that! Momo!” And then, they went back to their home with smiley faces.

At that time, I learned that the listening requires only listen carefully whatever they’re saying. I don’t think it’s hard that much. Also, I thought that listening has the biggest influence on the subjects and makes them feel respect. So, I suggest you listen carefully and understand whoever as best as you can. I hope you can visit my residence and have such a great time as soon as possible. I hope that I conveyed all of my emotions that I felt since I got here.

Always be with you, my best friend So Yeon! I hope I can get the reply to this letter!

From. Your best old friend, Momo


I am writing a letter to capture the exposition of Momo that written by Michael Ende.
The letter can show the setting and the conflicts that happened at the beginning of the story. Also, the writer of the protagonist who is Momo wrote a letter to me. So, I think the method of how she explained setting and conflicts, the audience can figure out her traits and characterization.

In the letter, she explained about the conflicts and particular issues that can prove her special ability which is listening. Such as like, Momo said, “Here and this is my home”, she patiently paced her emotion. With the space between Momo and people, Momo gives impact on her opinion and she said, “I don’t need a lot”. These quotes show how much clever, wise, and intelligent she is.

After that, it shows the connection between the protagonist, the characterization, the conflicts, and the setting. Because, for example, she wrote about the conflict that happened by person to person and she treated it as an example of her special ability.
