American Revolution Journal

There’s many different perspectives in the American Revolution. The events are also closely connected to each other. The American Revolution all started because colonial opposition to British attempts to impose greater control over the colonies and to make them repay the crown for its defense of them during the French and Indian War. Then the war caused Britain to occur a huge economy collapse. So Britain decided to put tax on daily supplies for the American colonists to pay. Which caused the colonists to protest, and 242 chests of tea was thrown down the ship, into the sea. I don’t think that the revolution is worth it for Britain because they lost the war at last. But on the other side, the colonies has a happy ending. They won the war, and they successfully declared independence from Britain.

American Revolution in Plain English

Do you know that the way British use to control the American colonies is to put tax on every single object they use daily?  Do you know how did the American colonies react to that? In this video, you will get to figure out the answers, and will also get to learn more about the most important events in the American Revolution.

“The 57 Bus”

The book “The 57 Bus” is by Dashka Slater, and in the book, it introduced two person that has an entirely different lives, one called Sasha, and one called Richard. Sasha is agender, and prefer other people to call her they, since there isn’t any proper nouns for people that are a gender. Richard is a boy who is born in a place where crimes usually happen, so discrimination is a really common thing for him. In the book it also talked about Sasha and Richard, they has met on a bus, and the things that happened on the bus. It’s really interesting that many things that was introduced before, has a connection with them, which affected their personality and how they choose to live their lives. The central idea of this book is identity and discrimination, because in the part where the author is introducing Sasha’s life, the author gave lots of examples to prove that the LGBT community had not been widely spreed and accepted, which made an connection with identity. Further more, in the part where the author is introducing Richard’s life, they author also gave lots of examples to prove that in the city Richard was living, many people has been treated differently, and that eventually connects to discrimination. Overall, I think that this book is really interesting, and I will defiantly recommend this book to everyone who like books that has an amazing reversal at the end.

 

The book that I’ve read is called “I’ll Give You the Sun” and it’s by Jandy Nelson. The book is about the relationship, and the things like drama, that happened between a boy called Noah, and his sister called Jude. The author, Jandy Nelson, believes that communication usually helps solve lies and misunderstandings between relationships. I will recommend this book to middle school and high school students because there’s parts that’s about having sex and couple relationships, which I think will affect the middle-high schoolers to protect themselves and to say no when someone force you to do things you don’t want to do.

Found Poem

This found poem was created with the words of Roald Dahl. In the story “Lamb to the Slaughter”. Mary’s is facing a problem with her husband because on page 3, her husband told Mary that he will not be able to come back home really often anymore, and she’s afraid that her baby will not have a father for the rest of her baby’s life. So she decided to kill her husband and acted like nothing has happened so that her baby won’t get effected by her.
