2 things I did good on:
- I did well on the background information, I’ve never done this on an essay before but I’m glad it worked out well
- Minimal grammar mistakes

I had some interesting learning experiences in English 11. Censorship didn’t really get me thinking as much as the identities unit. In the identities unit, I learned that there are many different ways that people identify themselves apart from more of a traditional identity, and the struggles that they face have made me a little more aware about this issue. From the debate on censorship, 50 Shades of Gay, and the Washington Redskins paragraph, I learned that there is no definitive “black and white” and every single area in life has a grey area, and it’s very easy to be biased and sway someone else’s opinion to one side, such as you having the power to be able to pick our sources. From this I’ll be sure to be more aware of the sources that my future teachers will give me.
Generally I think our society is pretty accepting now which is a good thing, however it was only in 2012 that many states didn’t allow gay marriage and being gay meant you were a 2nd class citizen.
My thinking may or may not have expanded, but I don’t think I can tell. I learned how to loosen my mind to not immediately stick to one side and cling onto my own opinions before I start to write on a topic about something.
Fahrenheit 451 was the only book we’ve read and I have enjoyed that book far more than Indian Horse. I like the way the author writes and tells his story and it may be crazy but what he’s imagining in the story could totally be possible one day.
Overall, it was a pleasure to be in this class, grades and tardiness aside (X block was insanely hard to get adjusted to). I usually hate English but the topics we’ve covered made the class enjoyable and a different type of learning experience for me.
B) Our problem was that immigrants don’t get accepted into today’s society, sure people can tolerate them, but many don’t see them as part of us. Our solution was to get someone to represent and spread the word of the nonacceptance that immigrants get so that people can recognise their issues and change. The shoe box is a stage, on the shoe box are paperclips which represent the youth, taking in the information and the solutions to the problem that the speaker is addressing.
A) The hardest part of this project was finding a way to create a person, since with the supplies we had, it was very hard to imagine a way of making a person. The mic stand was also hard to make.
We overcame this process by seeing what we could do with our supplies
From reading the first few chapters of Three Day Road, I conclude that Joseph Boyden should be able to continue writing stories about the indigenous people in Canada. Joseph understands and obviously knows what he’s talking about. Joseph also honours indigenous people and lets their voice be heard by telling accurate stories of their past in a respectful manner. I do not think he should be able to claim that he has an indigenous background though, since that is lying. It’s understandable that it is a huge part of who he is today, but he shouldn’t lie about being indigenous

Beatty was once a reader of books, but has come to blame offensive material and the fact that the government wants to have control over citizens on the current state of society. One thing that shows this is Beatty’s comment towards Clarisse McClellan, “You ask why to a lot of things and you wind up very unhappy indeed, the poor girl is better off dead” (page 60). Another clue is how Beatty explains books as a “loaded gun”, saying that knowledge with make people unhappy or offended, and then start to question the nature of their society. Also, Beatty points out that its best not to keep people worrying when he says “Let him forget there is such thing as war”(page 61) and “Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed,
but absolutely brilliant with information Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving And they’ll be happy” (page 60) which says that all citizens should just be filled with entertainment and useless information to keep them distracted and “happy”. From these quotes and information, we learn that Beatty is a genuine character and strongly believes that destroying books will do good for all citizens. We can also tell the current state of society is to keep all people the same and happy, and books are destroyed to prevent people from questioning this dystopian society.
My bad, the video somehow didn’t get added to the post when I originally posted this, so here it is.

What is a Solar Cooker? A solar cooker is a device that uses the power of the sun in order to cook food. The thermal energy transfers from the radiation of the sun, reflects off of a mirror and onto a pot, and then the conduction of the metal will make the water rise inside which is convection.

Here are the 3 most common types of solar cookers and the pros and cons of each design.

For our project, we chose to create the box cooker. We chose the box cooker because it was simple, easy to make, and effective.
Want to know how to make this? Check out our procedure! Very easy and simple. For kids aged 5-10.
(Formatting for the images messed up a little for some reason)
Here is a 2 minute video I made explaining the experiment and results at the end
