In the following questions you must use CORRECT MUSIC TERMINOLOGY.
I am now transitioning into the music rotation which is one of the rotations in the three fine arts assigned by my school. I will now have to choose an instrument. After some research, I have decided that I will attempt to learn how to play the clarinet. The clarinet is a wind instrument that has a straight cylindrical tube and a single-reed mouthpiece.
Here are some resources I compiled to research about clarinets:
A brief overview of the use of clarinets.
A guide on utilizing the correct equipment to clean a clarinet.
Two guides on the basics of a clarinet.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted. This is my reflection on my logo design project. Below is my logo:
I created this logo for my Design Crit C assessment. I used colour and shape psychology to help develop my logo. I used these sources to create my logo:
The presentation above helped me decide which shapes to use. I learnt about how triangles meant precision and circles represented perfection. I utilized this knowledge to choose my base shapes and the many details I included in my logo.
The presentation above helped me decide what colours I would use in my logo. For example, blue meant conservatism and loyalty, green meant growth and envy, while gray meant balance and boredom. I employed my knowledge to choose my colours.
Upon completing my logo, I created an annotated diagram to display the many aspects of my logo. Below is my annotated diagram:
Since I still have the Crit D component to complete, I will have to receive some feedback. Below are my suggested prompts.
- What do you think about my logo?
- How can I improve my logo?
- What do you like/dislike about my logo?
Task: Create a role-play to include all of the information I have learned since the beginning of the year.
Although we had enough time in our audio, it was a long process for developing the script. Even though we included a lot of information in our first draft, it only lasted for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Since we had included almost all of the content we had learned, all we could do was add more detail to our script. We added better responses and more adjectives.
Work Ethic of Partner:
I had a really valuable partner. Even when she was sick, she still came on the script document and worked on it while I was in French class. We also made sure to complete the task by recording the audio afterschool.
I believe that my pronunciation was pretty solid aside from a few words that I wasn’t so familiar with. For example, I pronounced the word “famille” incorrectly.
Was my partner easy to work with?
Yes, we were focused for the majority of the time in class. We did not encounter any issues with recording and the whole process went smoothly.
A challenge I encountered was how my role-play script did not last long enough in the beginning. This forced me to add more details and use more adjectives.
I was proud of my results. I got full marks in my communication and a decent mark on my utilization of language.
Goal For next Assessment: I would like to improve my utilization of language and learn how to pronounce French words correctly.
6E just started a new unit called STP (Sharing the Planet), it focuses on world problems. So far, we have been reading unit books in groups. My group read a book about this boy called Iqbal and his sustainable gadget. He participated in a science fair because his pregnant mom was getting sick from smoke fumes. His gadget ended up to be a solar cooker which did not require any fuel to operate. After he built the solar cooker, his mom’s health improve because she didn’t have to cook over an open flame. Soon, we were given a sheet called “Think, Feel, Care”. We had to write about our feelings and thoughts about Iqbal and his gadget.
