English- The Outsiders Unit

Conceptual – What creates a sense of belonging?

Belonging is very important in the outsiders novel. The characters in the novel all feel together as they are in a gang. This is what helps them to feel close. When someone in the gang is injured or at risk at dying they help them to feel as good as they can  be. The main thing that the creates a sense of belonging is a way how people are together and care for each other. Without this people can feel sad and not feel happy.

3-D Printing 4th Design Project Cycle

Design Process

Stage 1

The goal of this project is to create a cube with writing on it. This will seem pleasing if created right. I will try to research apps and websites that will be useful in creating the cube.

I like the design because it is simple and the fill density was a good amount. I wish a different colour was used so it would be easier to see. What if they did it again and used blue instead of white.

Image result for simple 3d printing designs

I like the design by the amount of detail and how it was created very smoothly. I wish the roof of the house can be the same colour as the rest of the house. What if they put different colour pieces of paper on it.

Stage 2

For the 3d printing i will use 50% fill  and the cube tool to make a cube. This kind of how it will look like except there will be writing over it. it will be 1-2 letters.

Stage 3

Plan

Step 1: Ask to use 3-d printer after school (3:00pm)

Step 2: Get the sd card to put into the computer

Step 3: Upload the fie

Step 4: Do the printing by monitoring it

Stage 4:

  1. Explain which parts of the plan were well designed. Which parts of your plan were you most happy/proud of and why?

I was happy with the part of the plan which includes the creative portion. This is very important as that needed the most improvement. This helped us to perform a better creative portion which is very important towards the rubric. I was also happy with our first step because before we were way more sloppy. The way we showed our moves before were rough. We needed to take it slower to understand the problems better and focus instead of wasting time. During the performance we were able to be at a better pace. This sometimes was in sync with the music.

2. Explain which parts of the plan were not well designed. Which parts of your plan were you not happy with and why?

I was not happy with the part about the timing. I thought we would have enough time to start getting our movement with the beat. The creative and the compulsory portion needed way too much work that we couldn’t come around to it. We were pretty behind when there was only 2 classes left to perform our Capoeira. This really affected our performance as especially in the creative portion we messed up the last two moves which was very bad.

3. Explain how you would change the plan to improve it. If you were to do it again, what would you change in your plan and why?

I would change the plan by also organize when I will do the certain tasks so I don’t have to deal with the timing problem. I would not include the timing part because it will take lots of effort and time to get the rhythm. I would also change the first step to be the compulsory part. This is because our cadeiras were not that good. It is important to do well in this which we did not do.

 

La Vie Scolaire

What I learned-

Factual- How can I express my needs in a classroom setting? How can I use french in situations related to school?

I learned school subjects, time, places, adjectives related to verbs, reviewed verbs, reviewed connecting verbs

I can use french when I am in a foreign school where one of the main languages is french. I can use it to talk to people in french. This will allow me to talk with a more variety of people in school. This can also help me in future schools

Conceptual- The organization of our school and our curriculum is influenced by the socio-economic and the cultural background of our community

I don’t think the parents need to influence the school as it is very international. Most people in the school is higher class so they won’t have much influence. It allows different types of students to do good in the school. The curriculum is also good because it grade 12 there is two diplomas of which you can graduate with.

Debatable-What’s the perfect school system

The perfect school system is one where the curriculum is very good so students can go to colllege or universiy at a very high level. It is also a neat and tidy school with a nice and friendly community. This will have a very positive influence.

 

 

 

 

Reflection of Yangshuo Experience Week Trip

The experience week trip was pretty fun. The activities were in logical order which makes it better for the students. The activities were also very interesting and fun. Caving was cool with the rivers and the bats on the ceilings. Biking was fun because we got to bike on the main road and on muddy areas. Cooking helped me to learn how to make chinese foods like dumplings and noodles. We also had good meals. We had a western and chinese breakfast. There were many options. The lunch was okay. The dinner was good with its food. I enjoyed the free time part. It allowed me to explore Yangshuo with my friends some days. I also got to relax when I am tired. The time and the layout of the trip was pretty good except for the first couple of days. The time we had to wake up at was bit early. But it was still a good time to make it to breakfast. The instructors from the company made the experience so much better. They were very engaging and willing to help you out at any time. Even when it is hard. The debrief and the end of the day was decent. It help to understand the positives and negative and who we appreciate. The announcements were extremely helpful though.
