The Ways of the Revolution

I compared pages 22-24 of the novel Red Scarf Girl, written by Ji Li Jiang, with an article from the book China’s Cultural Revolution, called Red Guards Smash the Four Olds. The two articles that I picked were both mainly about Smashing the Four Olds, but it touched on the major turning points such as, “The End of the Revolution.” Although the subject was the same, the non-fiction article stated more in-depth information about specific actions taken to destroy the Four Olds.  To conclude, through all the analysis of the text, the two passages have many similarities, but much more differences. Overall, “Red Scarf Girl” was still written to mainly tell a story, while “China’s Cultural Revolution” was written to give information to the reader.

Dear Ms Long,

Fault In Our Stars – Rising Action

the-fault-in-our-stars-multimedia

The movie poster which I did is based on the book, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I created it using mainly text boxes from Word Document. I tried to portray the main conflict in the Rising Action.

The current conflict in the book is true love versus “cancer” (Green 3). The Fault in Our Stars is a book about a girl named Hazel who is battling cancer, while having a love affair with Augustus Walters, the other main protagonist. However, cancer has been becoming a huge problem and always got in the way with her love life. Hazel planned a trip with Augustus to Amsterdam, but due to cancer” I can’t go” (118), both her parents and the doctors are forbidding her to do so. She is terribly sad but doesn’t give up hope.

In the poster I tried to focus on what the protagonist would be feeling. In the poster they are hugging each other which shows that they are really determined. Also to emphasize it I put a statement in bold text in the center.
