Cuban Revolution in Plain English

This is my Revolution Seminar Common Craft Video with Kelly. We learned about Cuban Revolution during this unit. In this video, we used drawings to explain what happened and talked about some changes and continuities in Cuba.

I think we have collaborated well because we did most of the things together and also met on weekends to finish this video. Also, we included both of our’s opinion and talked about how to improve this video.

Theme in book Trapped by Marc Aronson

Trapped: How the World Rescued 33 Miners from 2000 Feet Below the Chilean Desert

By: Marc Aronson

The theme of my book is:  Mining is a very hard and dangerous thing to do.

“Dust was blowing everywhere, getting in the miners’ eyes, temporarily blinding some and leaving the others blinking back tears.” Page 24, 25. This shows that the miners can’t really see underground. This would make it the miners very hard to live. Also, “Since they were near underground magma streams, it was seriously hot- ninety-degree temperatures with 90 percent humidity.” Page.26. This means that the miners would need lots of water to not dehydrate. But finding water in the mine would also be hard. This means the environment the miners live in is not that great.

I think you should read this book because this book contains interesting events that have really happened. Also, you can learn specific things about mining and can see the development people go through. I would rate this book 3.5 out of 5 because this book was a little bit hard for me to understand the words. But other than that, I think this is an interesting book to read when you are bored.

Boxer Rebellion Thinglink & CER

Do Boxers deserve a bad rap?

Boxers deserve a bad rap because Boxers killed a lot of people and also have put actions with violence. For example, Boxers have to dig up a hole and put a bomb inside to break the wall of the French legation. They planned this because Boxers wanted to kill people inside the French legation. Another piece of evidence is the location of Foreign legation. Canal street was regularly was a river. That river wasn’t clean because it was used as a toilet. The foreign legation was placed next to the river because of the smell. This tells the hate they had for foreigners. Also, Boxers have destroyed the Catholic church because they disliked Christianity. This shows how Boxer was violent toward foreigners and Christians. Boxers have made a lot of people to live with fear. They also have killed a lot of people because of their anger. In the first place, Boxers were only created because they wanted and disliked the spread of Christianity. In conclusion, Boxers deserve a bad rap because they were violent toward foreigners.

CER+ER About The Aged Mother

Theme CER+ER

Emily Oh 8-5


Sons are lovely but would look more lovely from the mother’s perspective. According to The Guardians, Mothers are more critical of their daughters than their sons and admit to having a having stronger bond with their little boys. The mother from The Aged Mother also feels a lot of attractive to her son because of his actions. The Aged Mother by Matsuo Basho shows how the farmer and mother trying to overcome the despotic leader who governed Shining. The farmer who loved his mother, couldn’t let his mother die. Mother also with wide ideas could make the cruel law to be abolished in the end.

In the story The Aged Mother, by Matsuo Basho, the author believes that the son cares about his mother a lot. For example, “Just at sundown, when his day’s work was ended, he took a quantity of unwhitened rice which was the principal food for the poor, and he cooked, dried it, and tied it in a square cloth, which he swung in a bundle around his neck along with a gourd filled with cool, sweet water. Then he lifted his helpless old mother to his back and started on his painful journey up the mountain” (Basho 1). Show he prepares lots of things for his mother for her to eat in the mountain. This makes me feel that he is worried about how his mother would live in an unsafe place. He also lifts her mother because of her age and goes up the steep and long mountain. I can also see his effort from the farmer for his mother. Later on, the story also says that “His heart broke within and bowing to the ground, he cried aloud: “’ oh, Honorable mother, your kindness breaks my heart! I will not leave you. Together we will follow the path of twigs, and together we will die!’” (Basho 2). At last, he makes a decision that he couldn’t do this anymore. He tries to think of more ideas. This shows that he cares and feels bothered about his mother and can’t leave her alone in the unsafe mountain.

Found Poem : The Last Kiss








This found poem is created with the words from The Last Kiss by Ralph Fletcher. The main character usually gets goodnight kisses from mother and father.  But one day, the father doesn’t give him kisses in sentence 34. The main character feels puzzled and tries again the next day but keeps failing.  That when we realize that he got old for kisses in the last paragraph. And doesn’t embrace more from mom because he is afraid that he will lose her kisses too.

This poem has an external conflict with his father. I knew that it has an external conflict because the protagonist wants kisses from the antagonist and keeps on asking him.  Quote such as “I’m going to bed, Dad,” shows how the protagonist wants the antagonist to give what he wants which is a kiss.

I included conflicts with the main character and father inside the poem. I made a big space between no more and kisses because I wanted to make it feel heavier. I also included how the main character has been kissed before from parents to shows the difference.

I used a solid white background to make black words look clear. I matched black icons by the color of the text. And I tried to make it simple because I wanted to give emotions that are empty. I included a kiss mark to match the title, and teardrop to also shows how the main character is feeling.

About the author:


Comparing two deadly diseases

Legacy of Ancient China

MS PE Mental Health and Technology

Part A: Answer the following questions:

A) Describe how you feel and act when your mental health is thriving in the Green Zone?

-I feel relaxed and peaceful when I am in Green Zone. I think I try to do more things what the others want me to do when I am in Green Zone.

B) Describe the tech habits and strategies you use to keep you in the Green Zone.

-I try to use computer or any technology until 10p. m in weekdays. But when I am doing tech learning like these days, I have 1hour free time to do social medias after doing all my homework. I try to keep this habit everyday.

Part B: You are going to write a Mental Health ‘How to Guide’ for 6th Graders who are new to tech use. For some, it’s the first time they get a smartphone. For others, it’s their first laptop. You may also write this for “Future you” if you currently don’t use much tech, but may start in the future.

1) What do they need to be mindful of with regards to gaming and/or social media use? What advice can you give about popular apps (like WeChat) or certain ‘addictive’ games? (Use what you know about the positives and negatives of gaming/social media use and how they can affect the brain and mental health).

-Firstly they should know that games and social media is very easy to get addictive. They might get addictive even before they know that they are addictive. When you get addictive, you will feel hard to concentrate and can only think of that when you go to sleep of at school. This can affect your health and your sleep. I could give advice that it would be better to use any technology in limited time. If there is no limited time, you would do it like every time. I also recommand not putting your technology beside you when you are sleeping. You might check time and see the notification up and that’s when you start chatting with friends..

2) What are some good tech habits to stay in the thriving Green Zone of Mental Health?

-Using technology in limited time and not puttinf the technology near me.

3) Describe some strategies they could use if their mental health becomes unsettled or if they start to struggle in the Yellow or Orange Zone? Explain how or why these strategies can help them get back to the Green Zone.

-I think actually nor using phone for a while is the most best solution because you don’t get to access to social medias and gaming. I think mental health getting unsettled is caused because of the technology. Playing with real friends and socialising can feel much better than talking to person that you don’t even know. Real friends can also help about this mental health problems. They could also give you advice or keep you from not doing technology.
