For our major project for the Odyssey was to make a product that reflects what we learned while reading this epic. In this magazine, I compared Odysseus and Penelope to a current couple in this generation. I used the ending part of the epic when Odysseus finally made it home to Penelope; also, the drama that came after from Odysseus cheating on his wife. My plans for improvement would be to use technology way differently. I believe I could have done way better and could have been more creative.
ELA 10.4.2 Establish a coherent thesis that conveys a clear perspective on the subject and maintain a consistent tone and focus throughout the piece of writing.
This are the essays I wrote in my Sophomore English Class. This honestly shows my growth in writing because the fact that I actually got a 5 out of 6 on two of my essays. My average score that I would normally have would be at least a 4. Since the beginning of the year, I have been trying and practicing on my writing skills. The two essays that are 5 out of 6 are the ones that I have increased my writing ways. What I plan on in the future is to get a 6 out of 6 on my next essay.

Doing this project really touched my heart. I really enjoyed doing this project because I really put my heart into it so that I can let everyone know what was going on in Haiti.

The reflection on the project of Marco Polo is mainly about the religion of Christianity. It explains it's beliefs and shows how the religion started. This religion still exists today and this project taught me something valuable. While doing this project, I had fun learning about it and I think anyone can learn anything if they really wanted too. Me, being Christian made this Christianity project even more fun since I had some advanced information on it.
A2.10.2 Decide whether a solution is reasonable in the context of the original situation A2.10.5 Understand that the logic of equation solving begins with the assumption that the variable is a number that satisﬁes the equation and that the steps taken when solving equations create new equations that have, in most cases, the same solution set as the original. Understand that similar logic applies to solving systems of equations simultaneously
Many don't believe that we have projects in math, but we did! It was a great experience doing a project over our math lesson, and what we learned in order to be able relate it to a real world project. The fundraising was an idea to raise money for New Tech. My group all came up with different services we could have, then we chose the main service. In our Parabola Session Video, we took all that we learned and tried to make it fun for others to watch. The goal was to make learning about parabolas fun and easy. If I were to do any of these projects over, I wouldn't because my groups and I did very good and we all worked hard. :)
