Reflection on Identity

Reflection Doc — Word Document

Over these weeks at English B, we have been doing what we have been looking at:

 

1.Blogs.

 

2.Identity.

 

3.Subcultures.

 

  1. 7 Types of Plots.

 

While we worked with blogs, we did one project based on a blog about Daniel Redcliffe. Before starting it, we have watched a documentary movie called ‘Mad About English.’ Watching this film, we gradually moved to identity. We figured out what identity is for several lessons. Also, when we worked with blogs, we did an interview based on your blog and your character. In our case, we had an interview with Liu Wenli, who was a policeman who could speak using different accents, but his favorite one was the New Yorker accent. Moving on, we supposed to write a transcript for our interview for future assignments in-class. Later on, we did some in-class reading, listening, and writing tests. Also, we had everyday speech. When we just started, we had a whole sentence as a topic for future speech, but now we switched for only one word. It could be anything. You had one minute to prepare and gave a speech in a total of three minutes. We also defined subcultures such as steampunk etc. We had to learn them all to be able to identify them in the future. For this topic, we did one in-class presentation. We had a choice out of 4 subcultures, and each group chose one. Later we learned seven types of plots and created our own stories. Also, we did watch a video where Dolce and Cabana created a scandal in China.

 

Additional Questions:

1) I didn’t know that much about identity besides basics. The most memorable lesson was about subcultures. I didn’t know a lot about them.

2) I guess the most exciting lesson so far was when we watched “Mad about English” and did short interviews after.

3) One thing that surprised me was the Identity topic and how big was it.

4) I guess we didn’t learn everything about identity, so maybe I would learn more about that.

5) The identity holds the responsibility for acts and behavior under any circumstances.

6) I’ve learned a lot of new vocabulary from this topic.
