Still I Rise

This poem is about a black women named Maya Angelou. Its about how no matter what happens to her she’ll rise up and over come it. The Poem shows alot of self respect and confidence. The first picture we chose was a pile of old books and it represents her history. The next image is of a girl holding up her muscles and it shows her strength. The moon and the sun shows how everything around her is normal. The A card with a heart and it broken shows her broken because shes asking in the poem”do you want to see me broken?”. The image of an eye with a tear running down shows the tears. For all the images that are of rising we pictured the sun rising up. She speaks about sassiness and gloom and the images show the true emotion. For the line “you cut me with your eyes” we chose a picture of dark eyes to show the pain and sorrow. we chose dark and scary forest becasue of the lines “leaving behind nights of terror and fear” We chose the songs in the back becasue i think it helps show the emotion and meaning within the poem. it helps portray the felinos behind the poem. At the end  of the poem she tells us about her whole experience. Near the end we show images of Maya and how shes living her life and how she surivived her struggles.


Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Miss Hancock and Charlotte’s Mom
How did they influence Charlotte?
Sometimes when you feel like you being held back, look to those who are close you to look up to.. The Metaphor is a short story written by Budge Wilson. This short story is about a young girl named Charlotte and she has a passion for writing. Charlotte has a grade 7 English teacher named Miss Hancock who supports her and who she looks up to. Charlotte also looks looks up to mother.
Miss Hancock and Charlottes mom are complete opposites, yet they are both there for Charlotte to look up to. Its never enough to look up to only one person. Charlottes mom is always very put together and cares for her daughter. When Charlotte came home and went into the kitchen it was neat and tidy. In the story Charlotte would explain her mother as if she was always dressed up and wore a good amount of makeup. One day when Charlotte got home she was telling her mother about English class and how she had a lot of fun with Miss Hancock. Charlotte got interrupted “ Is she that brassyMiss Hancock whom I met at the Home and School meeting?” said the mother. This quote shows that her mother doesn’t like Miss Hancock. Charlottes English teacher, Miss Hancock is supportive of Charlotte and cares for her. Most of the students liked Miss Hancock, she was outgoing and encouraged the students to express themselves throughout poems and writings. Miss Hancock dedicated her life to children and teaching, so this meant that she would be passionate about her job and the students.” The Metaphor is yours- to use, to enjoy, to enrich” Miss Hancock stated. By saying this one might get the impression that Miss Hancock is laid back and lets the students enjoy themselves.
Hancock and Charlottes mom both are an impact on Charlotte by inspiring her.Charlottes mother was supportive when Charlotte was down the next day she found out about Miss Hancock passing. Although her mother still called her “that brassy creature from grade 7?” She was still there to comfort her daughter. At times you could think that her mom is a bit hard on Charlotte. “Charlotte” “I’ll have to ask you to stop this non sense” said her mother. After saying this it makes Charlotte stronger because she isn’t being babied at home. It also shows that her mom want her to become strong like herself. Miss Hancock was one of the biggest people to impact her. She was outgoing and was great at teaching. In a way Miss Hancock made Charlotte passionate for writing metaphors. Her lessons kept the students awake and happy. “Miss Hancock was equally at home in her two fields of creative writing and literature. It was the first tie I had been excited, generally moved, by poems, plays and stories.” after saying this Miss Hancock truly inspired not only Charlotte but the whole class because it showed them to be themselves.

Charlottes two remodels not only are good people in general but the details to them make them even more inspiring to her. Charlotte mentioned that her mother volunteers for the community a lot. Having someone contributing to the community makes Charlotte get opportunities for volunteer as well. This just shows that she will become a great person like her mom. Miss Hancock always taught the class with good enthusiasm. All students like teachers that are fun. Mis Hancock not only made the kids have fun but also made them great writers. “ Your writing showed promise, Charlotte” said Miss Hancock. She is so nice and honest to Charlotte.

Having one person to look up to is always great, but having two is lucky. Even if those two people are complete opposites it will make you a even better person. One person who is smart and has passion for education; the other who is well mannered and professional. They both impact Charlotte no matter what there personality is.

Forgiveness in Families

Forgiveness in Families


When the need for attention leads to sibling jealousy, all goes wrong. Forgiveness in Families is a short story written by Alice Munro. Val has always struggled getting attention from her mother since her brother Cam was born. Due to this lack of attention from her mom, there has been a sibling rivalry that has been developed also a bit of jealousy. Jealously not only happens in movies and novels, it also appears in everyday life. All siblings want more attention than the other. For instance Val’s first day of school her mom wasn’t there because Cam was being born. All the other students’ parents were there except Val’s mother. From when Cam was born all the attention right away went to Cam. Another example to show jealously was when the mother was sick and Cam and his friends did the healing dance. Val thought it was dumb their dance. When the mom got better she stated that the only reason that was better was because of Cam. On day when it should have been all about Val it ended up being about Cam. Val’s wedding day was going great until Cam threw up on the cake. When jealousy ends, rivalry doesn’t.
