Found Poem: The Monkey’s Paw

The story of the found poem is from page 10 and the found poem I am doing is from the short story The Monkey’s paw, the author is W. W. Jacobs, the concept of my poem is the characterization of Mr. White and Ms. White when their son died weeks after, I chose these sentences to describe their feeling after their son died and the artwork supports my poem because it shows the loneliness and the hopelessness of Mr. White and Ms. White after their son died.

Connect with a theme: Our Choice

The main theme of Our Choice is about a huge crisis we are facing right now, which is global warming. Author AI Gore wants to make the younger generation know about global warming, why it is happening and who cause it. He also wants us to understand why is it a huge crisis that is threatening the whole humanity currently and want us to react on solving global warming issue; so we could build a better future for the whole society and earth itself.

All the major causes of global warming are created by us, human. According to the pollution data around the world, countries like China and USA produce approximately 1.6 billion tonnes of CO2 a year. In Our Choice AI Gore conclude and agreed“Climate change, global warming, climate crisis—-it has different names, but they all mean the same thing: the earth’s environment is changing, and we, human beings, are the primary cause.”(AI Gore). Myself, as a younger generation who is responsible for the future of humanity and earth itself. Because global warming won’t just affect a person’s life, it will affect the whole humanity’s future. So global warming link to every human around the war, if I don’t act on solving global warming, it would destroy our society and environment; even the doom of humanity.

Capstone elevator pitch

Introduction: For the elevator pitch, I did SDG goal 7. Sustainable and clean energy, in the video, I talk about the relationship between renewable energy and recycling and how is it an issue; also how people are making conception on recycling renewable energy.

Reflection: I did pretty well on the elevator pitch. I express my idea well, my voice is clear loud and expressive, I check my note and use filler words rarely. Even though, I still have few problems to improve on. For example, I shouldn’t put my notecard below. Because that makes my eye contact with the floor, instead of the audience.

Capstone movie

Introduction: For my capstone movie, I did SDG goal 7; sustainable and clean energy. My main focus is on plastic waste and how could recycle solve the plastic waste issue.

Reflection: This is the first time of me making a documentary video, even though for me it’s pretty good. But there are still few small issues I need to fix, first is video editing, I have tried my best to make my video fluence, but there are still few parts that were not good enough. Also, since this is the first time I make a documentary video. I should make people be interested, for example, the interview part is too long and too boring, I could add some image to it to support my interview or just simply make it shorter.
