The purpose of doing this project was to show different types of oppression in various parts of the world. The quality of my webpage turned out to be eacellent and i was very happy about it. The standard WH.5.2 was covered in my document clearly for anyone to read. I used the Wix program to create my webpage. Using technology skills was vital in being able to do this project. Other SWLO's that were greatly involved were work ethic and problem solving. Without problem solving i never would have been able to figure out how to use Wix. In the future I am going to play around with Wix more to create more professional-like webpages.
WH Standard 5: Worldwide Exploration, Conquest and Colonization: 1450 to 1750
Making a simple informational video about parabola's and how they work, became a slight challenge but my group and I were able to pull it together and learn the standards along with the driving question: When will we ever use this? Using the standard, (A2.4.1) our video came along excellently and it included the answer to the question: When will we ever use this? The standard was to simply be able to write a parabola equation and be able to graph it on a grid. The ending grade was not a good one but I scored big points on technology and work ethic. I expected the grade to be not so good because others in the group did not want to work as hard or participate. For continued success, in the future I plan to make sure all of my group members understand the content. People who do not wish to be part of the group or work hard, will be removed.

My group and I created a diaroma of a specific invention form the industrial revolution and explained how it impacted the world in many different ways. In the future, I plan on growing and learning how to make projects like that, better and to create something extra that is going to excentuate my main product.

Baby no Baby is about looking at famlies and their genetics so that we can figure out weather a couple's children will be affected with a certain disease or not. This includes looking at family history and learning about various diseases and their treatments. Making a Pedigree was easy once I was shown how it works. Figuring out the genotypes was the difficult part. The Standard in which we covered was fully covered in my project. The grade that was recieved is yet known, but I feel really good about it. I put in alot of Work Ethic and Communication skills. I will continue to practice speaking and presenting my information the best that I can to improve in the speaking area of my project.

The purpose of the time capsule was to reflect on what drives you to want to stay and finish high school. We were to bring in one item that ment the most to us and put it into a box. When we presented to the class, we were being video taped on our speaking skills. Of course, everything got emotional really quickly for everyone. The product I brought in was something someone else made for me and it was still in good condition. My speaking skills were good at first, then they changed as my emotions changed. I got a really good grade on my project. For continued success, I am working on being able to control my emotions so that I am able to get accross what I need to without having any problems.
