I have been using my skills of acknowledging on what I read so far, I feel like I haven’t really been using my skills wisely enough, But there can be a better day in the future where I can use these skills better. Also Mr. Moriarity came up to me like about 3 times to do my work, when I clearly was doing my work, but at the same time I was editing my product. Overall today wasn’t so bad but I could do better.

Today I have been working on opened, and last class I did some of my pre-research for project #3 since it will be about makeup, it will take me time to do all this. I have been doing reading on opened, since I need to practice on my reading skills. After I finish working on opened I will be doing my STAR Math test.

Today I had to practice some of my skills on khan academy, and it was mostly about polynomials and linear equations. I was also on opened for a while, just practicing my basic English skills, and I also listed down my 2 English standards for project #3.

Project #3

project #3 Standards: English

Analyze plot structure and development, including how conflicts are resolved (e.g., how particular lines of dialogue and events propel the action or reveal character)

Analyze the development of the central idea over the course of an informational text and how details support or clarify it.

Topic: Latin America

Essential Question: What other native languages are there in Latin American countries other than Spanish, and how do they conserve their native language?

  • Answers my question, as in how many languages in Mexico that are indigenous can be conserved and how

https://www.yachana.org/research/oxford_langs.html

  • Shows me reliable information about how many native Latin American language are there.
  • Shows Information on how people conserve their languages.
  • Shows how there can be so many changes over time, and my reading standards help me view all this in a better way.

 

Product: My product is a table, and it has list of friends that I personally know who know someone or have some family member that speaks a native indigenous language from Latin America. It shows the name of that person, the relation to that person, the language that that person speaks and also the reason of how they conserve the language.

Personal Reflection: Honestly, this project #3 brought me so many pride in my roots, because it made me realize how many people out there from my ethnic background don’t just speak Spanish. I realized that there is many people like this, and I couldn’t realize that even my own family has some related language that they speak. I thought that many of these languages were just purely extinct, but now I see that they aren’t, this still keeps going, it’s not that many people, but it’s still a large community of people who speak in these languages.

Notes of feedback: Everyone I talked to actually told me this was pretty, good but they told that they respected this since I did it based on Latin American culture, but they said that I could have done on this to the international level.

So today will be about mostly getting all my product done, my product was surveying people that I know, and the survey was about seeing how can people find new and unique ways to save energy, and how can people becomes more diverse in the community to have a green world. I already have mostly all of data, I hope that by tomorrow i will have everything done. But mostly everything is complete, so I am pretty sure that everything will go just fine.
