Ignite week – Express It! – Create and Improve

After finishing making our short scene we practiced it and tried to perfect parts we needed work on. Before the performance, we performed the fighting scene in front of our director and they gave feedback like use more Shakespeare and project your voice so we can hear you. It thinks this helped because we needed to know if they could hear us and if we needed to work on anything other than the physical part of the scene.

Ignite week – Express it! – Develop and Plan

During the project, I will need to use insults made from a list of insults used during that time. I will need to learn how to do professional combat skills which I have learned from Albert a jujutsu master and learning some Muay Thai from our teacher Ms. Difalco. We also learned how to make it more stage appropriate. I plan to use this int he real performance by going easy and not actually doing the Muay Thai and jujutsu moves. We got the ideas for the stage combat by taking what we had learned that day and piecing it together. while making the skit I realized that I had to change some of my insults so I could remember it easier and feel more natural acting it out.

Ignite Week – Express it! – Bard and Brawl

Who is your audience?

Our audience is the crowd that will be watching us during the final performance.

What is their problem or need?

We are trying to do stage fighting by incorporating combat with Shakespeare.

What is your inspiration? 

My inspiration is me I guess because I wanted to try something new and this was out of my comfort zone performance and defense wise. Learning how to properly do things with the right format is something I have always wanted to try and now I have the chance to. This movie called never back down is one of my favorite movies.Image result for fight scene in never back down

What is challenging? 

Something I have found challenging so far is the memorization required to perform.

One day – FA 8-9 Just dance

Define and Inquire – In just dance for one day we need to pick a song it can be by yourself, a duo, or group of people. We picked the song called Revolution from a movie called Step up All in. We got some of the inspiration for our dance from this video and the original dance video from the movie.

Develop and Plan – After coming together and choosing the song we started to work on the dance taking ideas for the video and one we made up on our own and fusing them together. we came up with a few steps and then added them on to our full dance. We chose certain parts like Britney’s solo because we felt she needed more to do in our dance.

Create and Improve – We finished our dance we practiced it as much as possible. We tried perfecting our moves and making it so that they hit the beat on time. our storyline is Hannah and I are puppets and Britney is our puppet master Here is our final dance.

Anika – Project Consume

link to my video found below

I think that if we consume things that are not sustainable then those things will end up consuming our world and our environment and if we consume things that are sustainable we wouldn’t need so much of that one thing. For example is a water bottle was sustainable we would have 50 billion water bottles we wouldn’t even need have of that. Now because water bottles are not sustainable people need to make more of them and now it’s destroying our earth. Most people think that recycling is the answer and i’m not saying is a good idea but it’s not going to fix the problem. How many times can someone recycle something before it becomes toxic?

Some ideas they heard the first graders and second graders learned was that birds and animals are eat ing our trash. They were surprised by how it is affecting other people’s lives too. When they saw the picture of the kid in the river they were surprised he was actually in the river. I think I was able to at least make them think about what plastic they consume. I heard a kid say that that they think that it is disgusting what is happening to our planet and he thinks we should try to stop. I heard a kid say that that they think that it is disgusting what is happening to our planet and he thinks we should try to stop.

Some interesting things I learned about is the real process of plastic and where it comes from which helped me understand why oil is so valuable. For example, oil was made over millions of years and we only have a certain amount we can use and this is why it’s so valuable. One thing I found really surprising was that recycling is not the answer which made me think about other ways to fix this problem. For example, we could use biodegradable plastic so it doesn’t harm the earth. Completing this project I learned interesting and true facts about myself I never thought of or knew. For example, I use much more than 25-30 pieces of plastic a month which is how much I thought I used. Before this project, I used to think that plastic was just something we need and use every day because we have to but now I think that plastic is much more important than that and we can reduce our use of plastic if we try to. The driving question impacts me because it helps me see the connection not just through consumption and sustainability but everything that comes with that. Looking back on project consume I realize that if what we consume was really sustainable we wouldn’t consume as much as we do and because people make things to eventually break it gives us no choice but to go back and get another of that same thing. I think if we made more things sustainable then we would consume less and save more for the future years to come. However, a big question I still have is that if profit is the only reason why we people don’t make things as sustainable as they could be or is there more to the story. some ways we can make a sustainable change by refusing to use single-use plastic. I do understand that it is hard to refuse all single-use plastic so just reduce how much single-use plastic you use by getting a metal water bottle. you can also try to use biodegradable plastic which can decompose and not harm our environment

My New Avatar

I chose this avatar because I love what my avatar represents. It represents the ocean or beach and I feel as if I have lived my whole life with the ocean and by the ocean.

Some of the challenges I went through was the planning and timing we had to have everything set and ready for our field trips and that can be a lot of pressure. A big challenge we faced was decision making. When we were all in a mall at joy city, we all wanted different things and it was hard to work out where we were going to do and what we would be having to eat, the fapiao, the payments all of that.

We worked through our differences and ended coming to a good decision. After going through that I think I have better-compromising skills and that is useful if you want people to see your point of view on things. I feel my highlight would be Tuesday because we were all fresh and new. we didn’t hold each to expectations and it makes it more natural then Thursday.

Something that did work was working together and being organized in the end. something that didn’t work out was our listening skills. when one person wanted to talk we had a hard time quieting down to listen to some ideas or instructions. We would get split up because too many people were trying to go in the train through tone door so we split up into groups in front of a different door to solve that problem.

I will show people who have never taken the metro what they think for feedback. well, our plan at first was not as good as our plan now. Before we had no plan or steps of maps. to be honest we kind of winged it and it worked out but now that we have to go to more than one place we have everything ready and set for no hiccups mistakes or for anything to go wrong

Make It: Develop & Plan

In my project, I will use the pictures that I took at in the metro and videos of what we did at the metro. I used my navigation skills to lead part of the time and problem-solving skills to come up with so rules we should follow while in the metro and what we should do if there were any problem.

An example, would be getting left behind was an issue at first but we got over with time and experience. To make sure we had everyone we had a count off with numbers I think we could make this more efficient but for that day it worked out okay. I think my peer and my teacher will help me do better and fix mistakes.
