One thing I am proud of is I believe my essay writing has gotten better since last year. I wasn’t always sure how to incorporate quotes and other things into my writing without it sounding awkward. Even though I still have to improve it a little bit, I’ve learnt a lot about doing it properly. Two things I need to improve is making the info is relevant to everything I have written before it, as well as making sure that I check for grammar mistakes more often and reading over it very carefully.
The First Nations may be affected by history and attitude because they may feel like they are not accepted as they should be because of stereotypes. They think that they are not accepted or respected in the places they live. People have put so much stereotypes on the First Nations which may cause them to feel forgotten because they are so generalized in society, getting rid of their true identity, making them feel invisible or like they aren’t a real person.
When doing this, I learned a lot about how to write a good essay and I will keep in mind the corrections for the next essay we write. I really enjoyed the topic and I felt really passionate about it. If I could fix anything before handing it in I would’ve checked more for grammar mistakes and get more then one other person to read over it for me.
This photo portrays fear because when I was little I would tumble down the stairs when trying to go to my brothers room to say goodnight to him with my mom, she would leave the light off so I couldn’t really see where I was going. I had other ideas like my driveway, because its super steep and I fell down it when we first moved there and I still have to be super careful in the winter especially. But this photo about the stairs I think was a better option because I also don’t really like the dark so the story about falling down them and the part of the dark was a good combination. This affects my actions now because I am more careful when walking down stairs and walking through dark places in case there’s something in the way or something that I wouldn’t know is there.
In foods 11, in September one of my favourite things we made where the cream puffs because it was super fun and easy, and they also tasted really good. It was really fun to make them because filling it was fun and drizzling the chocolate was easier then I thought and it tasted really good. I would really like to make them another time on my own time and maybe try filling them with other things and drizzling other things on top, like Nutella, vanilla cream, strawberry, or white chocolate. One other thing I also really liked was the angel food cake. I always thought it was super hard to make but it wasn’t too difficult and it tasted really good too, especially with the strawberries on top. I think it would also be a good touch to add confetti sprinkles into the batter and make confetti angel food cake. On the other side, one of my least favourite things where the muffins because of the raisins and walnuts, other wise I liked everything we made and I plan to make some at home too.
How can one make an impact on the world?
One person making an impact on the world could be seen as difficult; however, the book I am Malala, written by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb, proves that no matter who you are, you can make a big difference in the long run and make a change world wide. On Tuesday October 9th 2012, fifteen year old Malala Yousafzai was sitting on the bus where she was heading home from school. A man boards asking for Malala. She remained silent. Her identity was given away when she wasn’t wearing her burqa and before she knew it, she was at gun point by Taliban in Pakistan and fighting to survive to carry on her education. Ever since this day Malala has been doing all she can to promote women’s rights, and attending events to talk about her story world wide. Humans can make an impact on the world, by changing what may have affected someone negatively and turning it into awareness, more specifically Malala was raising awareness about girls rights to education.
By doing this project I learned more about genocides and what they are. Specifically the Armenian Genocide, it involved Turkish and Armenian citizens/government.
