The Skin I’m In



The book, The Skin I’m In, by Sharon G. Flake teaches us about everyone has their own beauty. The main character Maleeka is a 7th grader and her skin color is darker than the people in her school. Many people tease just because her skin color is different than the others. Maleeka sees herself as broken. The conflict is man vs man because Maleeka is fighting how to accept herself. I used a broken mirror to represent how Maleeka cannot accept herself. I used a gray back ground to represent Maleeka’s sadness. Her teacher Miss Saunders has a mark on her face and the teacher are very confidence about that so I used a mirror of her seen herself as a very beautiful women and I used a yellow background to show her confidence and brightness in heart.

The Luminous Summer

The Luminous Summer

In the luminous summer.

The sun is beating down in the middle of the day.

We the people, drinking more water tossing

the plastics into the ocean.

We the people destroy

the home of the feisty fish and crashing the colorful coral into dust.

This is happening because of us.

We feel sorry for them.

The dolphin won’t even come up for air to breath and just keeps swimming

below the desperately in the disheveled ocean

that used to be blue and shinning.

The beach is all full of

burning garbage and rotten fish bodies bloody on the dirty sand.

The wind blows though the miserable ocean.

All of the miserable problems are all caused by us the people.

We feel sorry for them.

We the people, are keep polluting the ocean.

We feel sorry for them.

Give Me Lysander or Give Me Death

The character I picked from Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare is Hermia. I picked this picture for Hermia because I think Hermia is a beautiful blonde haired lady.

A Sound of Thunder

In the story “A sound of Thunder” the main theme is a small action can impact the world in a big way.

In the story Travis always said to stay on the pass. When the Travis said: “Stay on the path. Don’t go off. I repeat. Don’t go off. For any reason!” (225 Bradbury). This shows how important to stay on the path is because they do not want to change the future. If the future is changed by a small way at the past it could change the future in a bad way.

The “Sound of Thunder” Eckels killed a butterfly and change a lot of thing in the future. When the Travis tell Eckels how important to stay on the path Travis say: “For want ten mice, a fox will die. For want of ten foxes, a lion starves. For want of a lion all matter of insects, vulture” (226 Bradbury) This shows how important to say on the path and don’t kill anything unless they tell you to shoot. Since Eckels killed a butterfly everything changes in the future.

The Bradbury was try to teach a lesson to the readers of “A Sound of Thunder” Pay attention to the small details because a small details could affect a big thing in the future.

Tug of my Heart

The found poem above was taken from “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant” by: W.D. Wetherell on page four at the fourth and fifth paragraph. It shows the internal conflict of when “the boy”, the protagonist, is making a decision between the bass and Sheila. Both of them are the “tug of (his) heart”. This shows that the character is forced to make a decision between the bass or Sheila. In the denouement the protagonist was not happy because he let the bass go and he gave up his passion for Sheila.
