History Day Reflection

     Our project is about Susan B. Anthony. She took a stand in history by standing up for women when they couldn't stand up for themselves, she focused on rights to vote and equal pay. We did an exhibit, and designed it to be like a voting booth. I like the idea of our exhibit design. How we tried to make it look like a voting booth also our color scheme. That is my favorite part because she wanted women to have political rights so we decided hey why not do the colors of the flag to go with the political involvement of Anthony. I also liked the voting booth idea because she mainly wanted women to be able to vote so they could be taken seriously in the government.
      The 1 most interesting fact i learned is probably the fact the 19th amendment was passed after she died. I thought this was interesting because she spent almost her life fighting for the 19th amendment to passed. Also the fact she went to a temperance rally was denied the right to speak because she was a women. This fact was interesting because she already knew she kind of wanted to work with women's rights but this was kind a kick starter for her to get involved. I think the hardest part of this project was deadlines because our 7th hour class missed a lot of days and our group was very busy on weekends so we had to work a lot in class also we had to work outside of class a lot on school nights as a group or at home by ourselves.
     I think this project helped improve me as a learner by teaching me you have to try hard even when you really don't want to because at times I didn't want to do much but I knew if I didn't we would get a bad grade and wouldn't be able to go to history day. Also it thaught me that sometimes you actually have to try for some research it isn't easy to find all of the time I thought that if we chose a well known topic it would be easy to research but I was wrong most of our sources just repeated them selves. Between now and history I would like to put our title on and know who is going to say what on our board. I'm most proud of my work ethic in this project because lots of projects I just go to try and get it done I don't really care but this project I worked hard and went for the best grade possible.
     Our project relates to the theme bcause Anthony took a stand for women to be taken seriously and so that women can do things that men do. Some advice to future participants of history day is to take this project very seriously and don't forget deadlines! Deadlines are your life in this project you miss one and you are behind for what seems like forever.

Shakespeare reflections

             Shakespeare Reflection

    When I first heard that we were studying Shakespeare I thought of a whole bunch of super old, hard to  read, super boring plays. but when ever we started reading Taming Of The Shrew, is when I learned that shakespeare isn't as boring as you think really, He invented a lot of words we use still today!

   I think it's still important to learn about Shakespeare because he was a big part in history also because he did so many things many other people wouldn't which helped us get where we are today.
    In the The Taming Of The Shrew I think Kate was tamed because she calmed down a lot and learned that men chase women until women catches him. Which is why I think she gave the speech on why wives should be obedient to their husbands.
  I think his insults and death scenes show that he had a different thought of good plays an poetry even than other writers of his time. Which also why I think he is a huge part of history today.

2016-2017 1st Blog post

        2016-2017 Goals

  My academic goals for my self are to be on the A honor roll and to learn a lot. My behavior goals are to never get a detention also to never get kicked out of class. Lastly my improvement goals are to pay attention more and to ask more questions. These are important areas to work on because if I don't set goals like this then I don't have anything to try for I don't have anything to help want to learn to reach my goals.

Independent project

My Independent project is about Gender discrimination mainly women discrimination. I choose this topic because I saw that on a presidential campaign and they were talking about how women don't get payed as well as men doing the same exact thing. So I thought  what other things do men get and women don't? The part of my project that made me the most proud was that I got everything done in a small amount of time. Also I feel like I got a lot of good facts about this topic and presented them well. That men get a longer jail sentence than women and men tend to jail sentences that females didn't for the same crime. Also that men thought women had to stay home and watch the children because the wife gave birth to the child. I would add more male discriminations or do a mostly male discrimination project.
This is an over view of my project. If you would like to see it more in depth there os pictures of each side and a small description of each picture below. 

On the top is a picture of Rosie the Riveter she was a big part of women movements in the WW2 time. On the bottom is a picture of money because if women had a job their husband could control there wages. 

 On the top is one of the first machines that helped women get out of the house.

This is a picture of the year the first women rights movements started in the U.S.A and Europe.

My problem is that the U.S. is using to much paper so I created an app to change that.
The solution is An app called " USE LESS PAPER ". It is a mix of canvas and gmail. 
My app would make it so that you could send emails, create worksheets, and other things like that without using internet. Also you can send them to people so they can fill it out. Some of my challenges were that I had to take it on the bus also I had to get all of my information printed at school so if I forgot something I couldn't put on till I went back to school. Some parts that went well were the conceptual model and the letters. I would make to were you could see what people are changing on the paper you sent out, but only the person who sent it could see it, and so you can do live chats. Because some people might need help or they might need a hint on a question or other things. My advice is to not get behind and pay attention to the directions so you don't get lost make Mrs.Edlin go CRAZY.
