This is the Journey of my Character Miguel in the Cuban Revolution.
After the Revolution, some things have changed, and some had stayed the same. These Events lead to those causes of those changes and some Events kept things that continued. But for sure the Rebels won the Revolution, and they changed the way the government works. Cuba was gradually becoming a Socialist country with new socialist laws being passed on. While the government changed, there was inequality and wealth imbalance among the Cuban people. There were still people who were still poor and they didn’t have a job so they didn’t earn any money. Fidel is aware of these continuities, so he is utilizing the philosophies of Karl Marx so he can fix the Inequality problem.
With the racial inequality, wealth imbalance and a Corrupted Goverment, the Cuban people didnt like this at all, not even one bit. They wanted a revolution to take down the Goverment that was controlled by a cruel leader named Fulgencio Batista. But amongst the Cuban People, Fidel Castro was brave enough to start a Revolution, and it is now known as the Cuban Revolution. Today we will explain what happened in the Cuban Revolution in 5 minutes!
*I forgot to rate the book in the video, i rate the book 4.6/5 stars.
Shackles from the Deep is a non-fiction book my Michael H Cottman. This book is about a horrific past of slavery from the late 17th century and early 18th century days. A group of Africans from Barbados, and Jamaica get captured and they are put in a slave ship called the Henrietta Marie. These Shackles from the Ship were used to handcuff the Slaves in the past. Once the Ship arrives at their destination the Slaves are forced to live life there and start a new job. The Main Theme of this book is Slavery is encouraging black people to give up on their society and the opportunities they had back there, and they should take upon forced labor against their will for the white people. I will recommend reading this book because 1. it can teach you a lot more about what happened in the past in Slavery and more about the Transatlantic Slave Trade. 2. since there is Divers that Dive underwater to explore more about the Henrietta Marie in the Story they are exploring uncovering the truth’s about that time which is also really interesting to read as well.
What I learned about this unit is that is so much easier digging deep and exploring more about history by researching, grabbing central ideas from the text, connecting one idea to another than just reading the book only by its text.
I made a sewable e-textile out of felt. I made it like a bookmark, with a LED lilypad light on the felt pieces. I chose the bookmark instead of the pin because I sometimes love reading books at school and at home, so I created a little bookmark for myself. I discarded the other ideas because I thought my idea of a bookmark will be really cool and more simpler. Here are some phots of my project!
The new part was the conductive thread that can conduct and transfer electricity from a battery to an LED. The things that were hard was the sewing part. I overcame them by learning from other people like my teachers or from other students in this class. The tip I would give to next semester students is to always ask questions to gather more information and ideas. I guess I can learn more techniques on sewing in a textile.
At the time when the Qing Dynasty was about to end, there was a Rebellion in North China. This was the Boxer Rebellion, where the Boxers started an anti-foreign and anti-christian movemnt throughout Northern China. My opinion on the Boxers is that they do deserve a bad Reputation considering what they have done. The Boxers took away the Christian Culture that was brought to China from the Christian Missionaries. The started attacking 2 of the German Christian Missionaries at a curch, which alerted Germany, and it caused Germans to take over Qingdao. They soon went from Shandong to Beijing and started attacking the foreign people, they trapped the British and the French in their own Legation. Therefore, the Boxers deserve a bad Rep, because they acted very violently towards the Foriegners and to the Christians.

This cover is from a play called Midsummers Night Dream by William Shakespeare. I chose the Character Hermia because her thoughts and actions were really easy to see throughout the poem. (like she made some quotes throughout).
My Favorite experience while building the circuit was how to learn how to make a circuit work by making the LED work. It was really fun, like putting the copper tape down, determine where the battery should go. I learned which side of the LED leg was negative and positive.
A challenge that I overcame was placing the copper tape down on the circuit and bending it in a different direction. For example:
- It would not go all the way and it would easily tear apart
- The Copper tape didn’t stick well on the paper. It wasn’t secure and that made a problem in the circuit
- Its hard to keep the copper tape in a straight line because sometimes it would go in a slightly different direction.
How to overcome that is that I can try to try to use enough copper tape and make the circuit smooth.
The aspect I like about the class is how if you’re stuck on something on your circuit you can ask other people to help and they are willing to help a friend
The aspect I don’t like is a lot of people depend on Ms Kim to help out and some don’t get a chance to ask her. There is 1 teacher and 14 students and most of them have trouble with their circuits so they all go to the teacher
My circuit was basically an e-card based off of a fictional character from a game called Undertale that became a huge meme in 2018. The name of my e-card was Sans the Skeleton. I tried to make the eye glow blue because in the game his eyes do that for a second, but rarely my LED does light up.
One aspect about the design is the idea of it, usually Sans always has a glowing blue eye.
I can improve on the copper tape and the smoothening. If I can smoothen the copper tape in all directions, then the connection might work, and the LED will light up.
