3 Essay Comparison

Reflection

All of the following essays are very informative.  We had to explain if video games were harmless entertainment or not and provide a good structured arguement.  Then explain if we thought Odysseus was guilty or not guilty.  I argued not guilty.  The explain slavery in Brazil.  They all had very good structures and some had quotes in the essays therefore I was linked to the standards. I enjoyed Harmless Entertainment the most.

Jeopardy!

Reflection

Standard 3 Reading: comprehension and analysis of nonfiction and informative text.  Evalutate interactions between characters and dialogue, compare and contrast similar topics.  Identify and describe dialogue, sliloqules, character folis, and stage designs.   For the jeopardy assignment you must come up with 15 good questions out of 3 topics.  The questions will show mastery of The Odyssey and good understanding as well as identifying the characters and their actions.  By coming up with the questions it made my understanding of The Odyssey a lot better than it was before.  At first when the whole class was assigned the Odyssey I was a little bit confused by everything the story was trying to express.  But once I came up with questions about the characters, battles of the Odyssey, and Goddesses I then could identify everything better than I could before.  It then helped me master the standard that I needed to master because I was able to comprehend the story along with the characters and dialogue.  I also was able to realize why the author wrote The Odyssey the way the author did.  Next time, if I could redo this assignment I would make the questions more in dept along with more topics but overall the assignment helped me a lot to understand and comprehend reading prompts.

Genetic Counseling Project!

Reflection

SWLO: communication/technology For one of my favorite classes BioHealth we had a project called Genetic Counseling.  Our teaches gave us a card that tells us about a family.  It explains how many children our family plan yo have and what disorder they hope there children will not inherit.  My disorder was hemophila therefore I had to create a punnet square showing which shows what percent of the families kids will have or will not have the disorder.  Then a pedigree which shows all of the family and who has the disorder and who does not. For this assignment we had to present our knowledge to the teacher and the teacher acted like they were the couple wanting to find out what the chances were that their kids would have the disorder.  We had to use technology to make our punnet squares and pedigrees as well as good communication to explain our knowledge.  I liked this assignment because it was some what group based.  But I did not depend on others to affect my grade instead the grade was based on me only which is how it should be.  I proved to Mr.Nelson that I learned the information and knew what I was talking about and for that I recieved a good grade.  Next time if I could redo this assignment I would learn more about my disorder and have more confidence when I spoke.  But overall I really enjoyed this assignment!

Power Point!

Reflection

ELA standard 1-put words together from all different topics to determine the meaning of new words. Reflection: Visual Vocab is a great way to recognize and learn new words.  For every slide of the powerpoint if a new word with a picture next to the new word along with the definition.  You must also create your own definition for the word.  The assignment helps students realize what each word means and implys along with a good understanding.  This assignment helped me learn the vocab a lot better than I would by just writing it on paper.  This way I can show a picture that goes along with the vocabulary word.  If I could redo this assignment I would try to come up with more creative photos for the words.  I would then have a image in my head.

Powerpoint

Reflection

Standard 7 Listening and Speaking: Skills, strategies and Applications. This assignment took place in one of my classes called BioHealth which is biology and health combined.  For the assignment we had to make analogies for each part of the cell.  We made the assignment through powerpoint therefore we could do a presentation to the whole class explaining our knowledge of what we have learned.  This proved our listening skills while the information was being taught to us.  I enjoyed this project a lot and I could tell you a lot about the organelles in a cell.  BioHealh has been a class I will never forget because it has impacted me so greatly besides one of the teachers in the class sometimes and im not talking about Mr. Nelson! But overall the class and project really have helped me learn and master everything I need to master.  If I could do this project again I would pick a different anaglogy.  I would love to compare the organelles to the human body! I think that would be an interesting comparison!

Fable A-Z

Standard 6

Standard 6: writing english language conventions.  Write with good understanding of the writing standards. 10.6.1  Identify types of english writing. 10.6.2  Understand parts of a sentence. 10.6.3  Good spelling and correct punctuation. To me this means that you must have a good understanding of what you are writing before you go and write a whole essay.  Also before you wrtite a whole essay you must have a good structure in order to write something meaningful.

Standard 6: writing english language conventions.  Write with good understanding of the writing standards. 10.6.1  Identify types of english writing. 10.6.2  Understand parts of a sentence. 10.6.3  Good spelling and correct punctuation. For this assignment we had to take a fable and re-write it but each sentence had to start each sentence with every letter of the alphebet. The first sentence would start with A then the second sentence would start with B etc.  At first I figured the assignment would be difficult because of the restrictions but once I started going the words kept flowing.  The assignment helped me build my vocabulary and my sentence structure.  Through the fable I would say that it helped me master what I needed to master for the assignment.  Not saying that I am always going to be mistake free but it changed the way I write essays.  Instead of starting all sentences with the I have know explored different types of english writing and all the possibilities.  If I could redo this assignment I would not do anything different because I am very proud of the fable I recreated.

This project was also for BioHealth.  It was very fun to do! We had to make two phamplets, a video showing proper food care in the kitchen!  My group even made a song at the end of our video.  The video was so fun to make!  I loved this project!
