I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

  1. Describe the setting. Show understanding of setting writing about how it establishes a mood or acts as a symbol. Include MLA formatted quotes from the text to support your perspective

I read the book I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and I focused on setting.  Malala Yousafzai, grew up in the Northwest of Pakistan she was born in Mingora, Pakistan on July 12, 1997. Malala thinks of herself as a girl who is not like the other girls as she says, “I don’t care for makeup and jewelry, I’m not a girly girl,’’ also she does not believe in fighting. Malala liked to hang out with the men instead of the women, Malala liked to listen to the “men talk about politics instead of listening to the woman talk about jewelry, clothes and other ladies in the neighborhood.” The setting is based around when Malala was growing up around the age of 14, she was sort of trying to figure out who she is. Then everything changed when the Taliban took control of her town in Swat Valley. The extremists banned many things in her town like owning a television and playing music and enforced harsh punishments for those who defied their orders. And they said girls could no longer go to school. So, Malala stood up for her rights and other women and her village and express that all woman should be able to go to school and have an education. Further years later she went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. The shows that she never gave up and always remembered her rights that she knew she had.

“The Monkey’s Paw” – Found Poem

“The Monkey’s Paw”

I created this found poem based on William W. Jacobs. The story “The Monkeys Paw,” a family of three gets faced with an old, dried up Monkeys Paw. The man that gives them this paw tells them that it will grant them three wishes, of whatever they desire. The man did warn them about the consequences that could happen, but they did not listen.

My found poem is based up upon the climax of the story when Mrs. White and Mr. White wished there son back and then that night the heard knocking on the door and before it opened Mr. White wished something to happen and Mrs. White opened the door no one was there. The picture on my found poem is of a door with a shadow of a man getting pulled away this symbolizes that the son was getting pulled away when Mr. White wished for something that the author did not tell us in the story. For the big THE I have in my poem I am trying to emphasize that Mrs. White was pulling open the creaky old wooden door with all her strength hoping and wishing that it was going to be there son. I choose to use a black background in my poem because it shows that this was a very dark time when Mrs. White opened the door and her son was not there it shows that her heart sank very deep into a cold dark place. In my poem, I tilted some of my words so they could be shown more and have more meaning into what is going on( keep the reader wanting to read) I made the word disappointed large because this was the main part of my found poem because,  when Mrs. White opened the door, she was so shocked that her son was not there.

Feed the Future – Make your own tacos

In the ”Feed the Future” project we had to get in assigned groups and work together to create a sustainable meal to help feed the future, this was hard in the start because we all had different ideas on what meal we wanted to make, some of my group members wanted to make a meal with bugs in it, but I didn’t think that was a good idea. In the end, we came up with an idea of making sustainable tacos that had ingredients that were good for you. In our tacos we had, lettuce, tomato, onion, black beans and a chose of salmon or vegan meat. Our tacos made your own so anyone that comes can decide what they want to them so it is personalized. Over this whole project, I have learned so much about what is sustainable and what is not.

 

These are the infographics that I made for the project.

The Bouncing Kangaroo

I created a flag called ’’Bouncing Kangaroo,’’ to showcase my Australian background. My successes were the whole flag because I really loved how the flag turned out and how I sewed the flag. My challenge was when I hand sewed my S onto my flag you could not see the S from far away. So what I had to do was go over the S with yellow thread to make the S pop out and so you could see it from far away. I grew because so stitches were hard to sew, but once I started, it was very easy. One of the skills I learned was to think outside of the box, don’t just do something easy do a project that you will be proud of.
