This past month in Humanities we have been studying how historians work and how they find out and record events that have happened in the past. We were assigned to create a project about our family that would use skills that are important for historians to use. In this project we talked about our grandparents generation, our parents generation and our generation. I created a video on iMovie that talks about each generation.
1. Are there certain ideas, or social messages, that influence the kinds of photos that girls typically post? How might these attitudes affect the kinds of photo comments girls post amongst themselves?
I think that girls take a lot of care when they take photos, and they want to look really good. They don’t want to look bad in photos. Guys don’t really mind what they look like in photos. I think that girls get nicer comments because people know that they try hard.
2. Are there certain ideas, or social messages, that influence the kinds of photos that guys typically post? How might these attitudes affect the kinds of photo comments guys post amongst themselves?
I think that guys may copy what looks cool, especially by celebrities.
3. Are people aware of their online images? Do they try to make themeslves look certain ways? Why or why not?
Yes, I think that people are very aware of their online images. People want to look cooler than they are in real life.
4. Do we have different expectations for how girls and guys should look or act online? If so, where do we learn these attitudes? If not, why not?
Yes. Girls should be more reserved and they should always look pretty, but boys don’t really have to look good, and they don’t have to be as reserved on the internet.
5. How aware are you of how you comment on other people’s photos? Do you think this differs for guys and girls?
I am aware of what I commet, I just try to be nice and not post anything thing that would offend anyone.
And remember: Think before you post, before you comment, before it’s too late..!
- What I Know: In this section, describe what you know about probability. You can also state what activities you have completed in previous years.
- What I Want To Know: In this section write what you want to know about probability. Describe what you want to know and give some ideas about how we as a class might be able to complete to help learn this.
- Probability is important because: In this section, tell me if you think probability is important or not. Tell me where you think it is used and where it is used in the real world. I don’t mind you being a little negative here – but be sensible.
- I don’t want to do: In this section – tell us what you do not want to do for this unit.
I don’t want to do lots of textbook work in this section, because, I think I would understand beter if there was less textbook work and more real examples.
I think that copyright cultivates creativity. With copyright you have to be careful to be within fair use when you use things that have already been created. So if your are trying to avoid copyright infringement it is necessary for you to create something new. This will make you become more creative while trying to find new ideas, instead of copying already made materials. I think that this helps new ideas grow into helpful new inventions and it will help the world progress. Overall I think that copyright can be difficult, but I think that it cultivates creativity.
1. Appearances and deception are a common theme in literature, how does Hinton demonstrate this?
In this novel greasers appear scary and violent, but when Cherry and Marcia meet Johnny and Ponyboy they find out that they are very kind. This shows deception because the greasers are not actually violent, they can be very nice and emotional.
2. Do narrators always tell the truth? Is Ponyboy a reliable narrator?
I think that narrators usually tell the truth because they are usually an objective observer. I think that in some cases narrators may not tell the exact truth, but usually they are quite reliable. I think that Ponyboy is a reliable narrator because he just explains what he observes without changing the truth. I think that it is not totally reliable though, because his views would obviously subjective.
3. Is The Outsiders relevant to you? Can you relate to it? Why or why not?
I think The Outsiders is relevant to us because the characters are teenagers and we are becoming teenagers now. I think that in some aspects I can relate to it. I think that in our school there are certain groups but they are not as strong as the groups in The Outsiders.
4. Should The Outsiders be taught in school? If so, at what grade level?
I think The Outsiders should be taught in school because it helps teach students about groups and cliques that exist in schools. I think that it should be taught in either 8th or 9th grade, because the novel can be difficult to fully understand, and it is probably easier to understand in 8th or 9th grade.
5. Who is your favourite character and why? Who is your least favourite? Explain your choice.
My favorite character is Ponyboy. He is my favorite character because in the novel he grows a lot emotionally. Through out the novel he becomes more mature and understanding of the world around him. My least favorite character is Bob. I dislike Bob because he is very arrogant and he tirelessly harasses the greasers. He is also rude to Cherry sometimes.
6. Which character impacts you the most? What emotions do you feel for that character? Does he/she remind you of someone else you know? Of yourself?
In this novel Dally impacts me the most because for most of the novel he is very emotionless, but towards the end when Johnny dies he finally breaks down. It makes me feel sad for him, because he has to keep all his emotions in and he has no one to tell his emotions to. He reminds me of many people because many people don’t want to be so open and tell emotions.
Below is a map that I created for Humanities class. This is a map of Motomachi that shows different stores, what they sell and where these stores originated. I don’t think that my map is especially amazing, but I liked the process that I followed to create this map. I think that the process of creating this was fun because we went to Motomachi Street to record the shops along the street. It was also interesting to create a map because it was a new task that I had never tried before.
The map below depicts the Chinatown, Motomachi and Bluff Area of Yokohama. It has short annotations that describe certain areas that show globalization in Japan. I think that this map is okay, but I think I could improve on this work. I think that the layout is not that good, because it is hard to see some areas, because they are covered with the annotations. I think that the information in the annotations is good because it highlights important aspects of the area.
Handball (also known as team Austrian team handball is a team sport in which two teams of six players each (five outfield players and a goalkeeper on each team) pass a ball to kick it into the goal of the other team. A standard match consists of 4 quarters of 16 minutes, and the first team to score 3 goals wins. Modern handball is usually played in a swimming pool, but outdoor variants exist in the forms of field handball. The game is quite fast and includes no body contact, as the defenders try to stop the attackers from approaching the goal. Players can dribble the ball like in basketball and can take 4 steps. They can also pass using, chest pass, bounce pass and kick pass. Players are only allowed to be in possession of the ball for 3 seconds before either passing or shooting at goal. The game has different phases. Firstly a team needs to gain possession of the ball and this usually occurs with the goalkeeper. The objective is to turn defence into attack. The next phase is moving the ball back away from the opponents goal and to your own goal. The next phase is to get into a scoring position. No players are allowed inside the D zone. However, every player is allowed inside the F zone. Fouls occur when players use excessive force and play is re-started with a jump ball. Players are only allowed a maximum of 5 fouls before they must exit the game.

The First drill is a warm up drill suitable for Handball.
1. The first drill is a drill that will help you warm up. You have a group of people (any number) who pass the ball around. Then there are people that are trying to intercept the ball. The people can run around anywhere in a certain area. The people passing the ball have to keep the ball away from the other people. The people passing the ball have to pass the ball to other team members. If someone intercepts the ball they will switch with the person who originally passed the ball, or the last person that touched the ball.
The Second Drill is a handball skill development drill to develop either passing skills, defensive skills or shooting skills.
2. This drill helps improve your dribbling and shooting skills. In this drill you separate into lines and then you use a handball to dribble down the field and then you shoot in the goal. There can be a goalkeeper in the goal to improve your shooting skills.
