The Hate U Give

Right now the book that I am reading makes me feel like I would like to jump into the deeper meaning of the book and also to understand more of the techniques that the author does to help us as readers to understand everything and to feel like we are living in the book. what I would like to do is to read lots of the parts that I think are useful in the book and start to put some annotations to help me when we are going to start the end of year project, but I will also be reading other books just not as much as I will be reading The Hate U Give.

Common Vertical

what did you do well?

I don’t really know what I did well

what do you still need to work on?

I still need to work on a lot of things for example my grammar and my narrative techniques.

my goal is to get meetings for my narrative techniques and my vocabulary.

Independent reading 1

The book that I am reading is The Hate U Give. Right now the main character in this book had gone to a party and she feels that she doesn’t fit in and she feels really uncomfortable. I actually really enjoy this book it is really fun to read because the book has lots of details and an interesting setting.

English 9 Goals

My strengths are I can read and write and my weaknesses are I have a hard time getting important information in my head I tend to ignore the important messages in an article or an essay. one of my other weaknesses is I am not good at spelling and my grammar is not that good. This year I have two goals. my first goal is being able to stand in front of the class and give a speech or a talk, and also I would want to try to read 5 books from start to finish throughout this year because I am not that good of a reader also because I don’t like to read. to help me achieve these goals I would like to have some book recommendations from my teacher and also I would have to manage my time for how long I should read and what type of books are good for me to read. another thing to help me achieve these goals are also to finish and do all the work that I am given. some obstacles I think that i will meet is when i am reading, i feel like i will feel bored and stop reading then i won’t read enough then I can’t reach my goal so that is a really big part of why I am not good at spelling.  I am not reading enough.

The Cultural Revolution

I was born twice first as a nice and week fourteen-year-old girl who would do anything to get into the best college. The second time was when I woke up with a red armband on me and bloodstains on my shirt. Hearing the cries and screams of children and women as I woke up, I knew that at that moment I would never go back into being the warm-hearted Wang Moyao I was. Everything that happened is written in my journal. I kept my journal with me all along I hope you can see what had happened.

Although things had changed like the way that people thought of foreign culture and the four Olds, there were still things that stayed the same. In china communism was what held us to this point, if we didn’t go by communism, I wouldn’t know if we could still get to this point today.  Not just communism stayed the same, but also the levels in people. I know it is not good to have a different way of treating people way their level. In nowadays china they don’t judge the levels people are in, and now the government is helping a lot to the people who need the help. Things come and go, but things that need to stay in the future must stay whether you like it or not.

The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution

During 1966-1976 The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution happened. What caused The Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution to happen and get really serious was in 1958 after the first five-year plan. In the beginning1957, Mao made his plan to modernize China. In that same year and the years to follow, Mao promised to get a better economic system, let everyone have the same amount of wealth, and the conditional development of the country, then surpass ofter countries. then in the early 1960s, because China was struggling from the five-year plan, Liu Shaoqi, Deng Xiaoping, and Premier Zhou Enlai gave economic policies to the great leap forward that they were planing. These leaders didn’t really agree with Mao’s opinions and visions. In 1962, when Zhou Enlai, Liu Shaoqi, and Deng Xiaoping were in charge of the economy, Mao had decided to start a revolution into making China a better country. Then what happened next is in this video.

Thank You Ma’am Internal Conflict

The found poem’s story was taken from a short story called thank you ma’am written by Langston Hughes. The conflict in the story is an internal conflict, the conflict is that is the boy is thinking about if he wants to stay in the women’s house or leave the boy in this story is the protagonist is the boy and the antagonist is the women. In my poem the concept is the woman says, “I teach right from wrong.”, my sink supports my poem because the most important thing in my poem is the internal conflict which is when the boy looks at the door and looks at the sink.

school uniforms

School uniforms

 

The vast majority of kids don’t want to wear school uniforms. According to one districtwide survey in Volusia County, Florida, nearly 70 percent of students said they were against a uniform policy. Personally, I don’t like wearing uniforms because it can take away the freedom of expressing yourself, really expensive and really uncomfortable.

 

Schools should not have uniforms because students should have their own way of expressing themself by wearing the unique clothes that they have. According to uniforms destroy individuality article, students with experience in wearing uniforms says it takes away a sense of indivitratiy, and because of this kind of taking away a sense of indivitratiy kids then would just wear a bad style of school uniform style to work and people would laugh at them then they will feel bad. This is why schools should not have uniforms.

 

Secondly, schools should not have uniforms because some schools’ uniforms can be really expensive, and some kids can’t afford the uniforms then they get picked on. According to a school elastic article, an investigator investigated that the average price of uniforms in schools around America, and the average price was $25-$200 per uniform and if every summer and winter they change the uniforms. How much money does the school get in a year just for a piece of clothing? This is also why schools should not have uniforms!

 

Lastly, schools should not have uniforms because school uniforms not only can be expensive, and it can also be really uncomfortable. Most teachers say that students should wear uniforms so they can concentrate more on their learning, but if the uniforms are uncomfortable then how would the students concentrate on their work or the teacher? School uniforms can be very uncomfortable because most female students don’t really like wearing skirts or dresses like me, but the problem is we have to wear polo skirts for 7 hours and plus. According to school uniforms, teen ink articles we shouldn’t wear school uniforms because school uniforms have to be tucked in the skirts or paints and uniforms have to be all tight and suited up. Some people will say that some school uniforms are comfortable, but if the uniforms are comfortable then the fabric would be really good, but if it is really good fabric then it would still come back to the problem of being expansive, and that is why schools should not have uniforms.

 

These are the reasons why schools shouldn’t have uniforms because they take away the freedom of expressing them-self, and they are pretty expensive for some students, lastly it is because the uniforms are really uncomfortable. This is why 70 percent of students in Florida is right.
