In this project we had to explain and show how plant cells and animal cells differed. We had to get in groups of four, and together we had to create a visual representation to show the differences. We chose to create a powerpoint. Throughout this project, we learned that of all the different cells, the major difference occurs between plant and animal cells. In the future, I would change the way I chose to present my information. I would chose something different, instead of the usual powerpoint.
We were instructed to create project in Spanish about ourself, which included our age, what we like/dislike, and four words that describe who we are and what we are like. I created a powerpoint about myself, and four of my friends. During this project, I learned how to describe people and tell what they like and dislike, all in Spanish. Although I am no longer currently in Spanish, I plan to keep on trying to learn this language.

In the beginning of the year, we were on a lesson about the Odyssey. This is the story of one hero's survival and his adventure. We were to write a story of the Odyssey adventure, but we were to re-write it in our own way. We had to pick celebrities from today era, and plug them in with the characters that fit from the story. The standard 10.6.3 is the standard that means producing legible work and writing a correct story. In my story, for example, the main character, Odysseus, was Johnny Depp in my story. I could have improved in this essay by probably making the characters fit the people more.
Interim Assessment 5A was a test we had to take to see how far we have got in our reading comprehension skills. We had to read a piece called, "Justices at Work" and we had to answer six questions at the end. The standard is how well you comprehend what you read. Also, understanding technical vocabulary. Plans for continued success, would include focusing more and trying to comprehend what I read.
We were instructed to chose a famous old fable, and re-write it in our own way. I chose the tortoise and the hare because it was one of my favorites as a a child. We not only had to re-write the story, but we had to write it in sentences, and each sentence had to begin with a different letter from the alphabet starting with A all the way to Z. Standard one explains understanding technical vocabulary, figuring out what words mean, and what they imply, and understanding new words. I applied this standard to this project because while writing these sentences that each started with a different level, you had to know your vocabulary words. The SWLO, "critical thinking" applies perfectly to this project because it requires you to think in ways you might not have thought before.
Our class was researching the different types of religion, and my group got Islam. There was about 5 other religions that other groups got. In this project, we had to create a visual representation presenting the following information about Islam: where it started, what the religion means, who the founder was, the place of worship, the basic beliefs, the prophets, (if any), and any other helpful facts within this range of information. In this project, i was in charge of the slides that included the basic beliefs. I also helped my classmates out, as they researched to complete the other slides of the powerpoint we made. The SWLO's, work ethic, collaboration, and communication fit this project perfectly because you have to work hard and stay on task, you also have to work well with other classmates and work as one to get the job done. Standard 3 covers comprehension and analysis of text, meaning we need to understand what we are covering. I think my group and I has this standard covered.
The biohealth brochure was part of the project called Food Bourne Illnesses. In this project, we had to make 3 things to present to the class. I made a powerpoint, a brochure, and a poster. But I am going to share my brochure. In this brochure, we had to tell important information about food Bourne illnesses. In the process of making this, I learned how to properly and safely store foods such as fruits, dairy products, and meats. The SWLO's work ethic and communication fit this project well because you have to work hard on it and make it look presentable and you also have to communicate with the group to find out the most important, factual information available, to put on the brochure. Next time I have to make a brochure, I will defiantly try and use an easier program to create it.
These three essays were written in the website criterion.ets.org. This is a website we go to and write timed essays about certain topics. The essay, "my school" was an essay about my school. In this passage, I had to write about what I would change about my school, what I like about my school, and what teachers could do to make this school more successful. Harmless Entertainment, was an essay about the topic: "do you think violent video games/television shows effect the way young children act?" In this essay, I mentioned that I think that violent shows/games are not meant for young children because they don't know the difference from right and wrong most of the time, and violent things they see they could possibly pick up on. Service Learning, was an essay about creating a way to help the community/environment around you. I chose to write about adopting a highway. When you adopt a highway, you volunteer to clean your highway, once or twice a week. All of these essays are similar, because each essay is asking for MY opinion, and I get to let my feelings out and say what I think about certain situations.
This is the webpage I made about slavery in Egypt. I made this whole thing myself.
