ATL’s Video

We focused on communication, but what other AtLs did you have to use in the creation of your video? 
When creating the ATL’s video we had to use collaboration because we had to work together to get video done and make sure that everyone’s ideas where considered. We also used our creative skills to make a fun but unique way of filming and editing the video to what it is now. The last thing we used was our reflection skills because after we where done with a person’s part we would all loot it over to make sure that it was the best we could do.
What impact on audience and purpose did you have in the creation of your video? 
Some impacts that we where trying to bring to our audience where that we wanted to make there first year in middle school easy and help them thought what we know. We also wanted to show them what we leant from being in middle school for two years or three years. We also wanted to show them that it was a big switch and middle school is very different to elementary and we just wanted for them to be papered for the new changes.

Spanish Reflection

What am I most proud of?

I think I am most proud of from the whole year that I have learnt a bit of Spanish being able to have a basic conversation with someone. Spanish had made me feel more confident in myself. I am also proud of learning things like colors, clothing, family and food. Being able to explain also those things to a person who is starting Spanish.

Do I consider myself a Spanish-speaker?

Not really because I would like to be confident when I speak and just go for it not be so unsure. I would like to use more advance words then basic words because it can make my Spanish more advance and have a better conversation.

What would I do differently if I could do the course again?

Find more websites that can help me with my Spanish. Practice the day before I have Spanish because I would always practices if I ah Spanish today and then not until we had Spanish again so next year and over the summer I would like to practice my Spanish everyday so I can be really papered for Spanish next years.

What are three concrete actions I can take to ensure that I am prepared for Phase 2 next year?

Find really good websites and videos like mi vida loca. Find a text book like the ones we did in class and we got for every unit and do a page everyday in the summer and next year in Spanish. I think this will really help me next year because it will ensure me that I understand everything that we did this year.


I&S Connections and Reflections

What are you studying in another subject that is connected to this?

In I&S we had to make a scripted and persuaded the judge to pick your side in the argument if not banning child labor or banning child labor. We had to use many persuasive techniques to try and win over the judge. I could bring my knowledge and understanding from english about persuasive techniques to this case and use it in my scripted.

What did you learn?

I learnt that many factories have kids from as young as  6 years old working and working for many hours a day. Many kids after there experiences in the factories would always seem to go back and work as an adult. I guess that surprised me because they had insured so much pain mentally and fiscally. I learnt the different view points of the children and the factory owners. I learnt how they felt, why they did what they did and how they got by everyday. I learnt how the kids in the Industrial revolution played an immense role in impacted our economy.



Sam Washington is a factory owner. Sam Washington started when he was six in child labor working in many different factories for ten years. When he turned sixteen he wanted to make a change how children were treated in factories. He started his own factory when he was 28 with the money that he got from his father’s will. The money was just enough to build his first own small factory. Sam Washington built this factory with the words of that he would treat the children that he employed the way he wanted to be treated when he was younger. The first child that he employed what a boy called Jam Socks but everyone called him Jam. Sam Washington found Jam all alone on the street starving to death. As Sam Washtine looked at Jam on the street he remembered how he felt alone when he was younger and how he badly wanted someone to help him. Sam Washington took Jam into his care and now Jam is the longest and first person how worked in the factory. Sam Washington now has ten factory in each factory he has treats the children the same with having the 6 years olds to 10 year olds working only 8 hours a day. Each kid get 1 hours of free time, we have 3 hours of school that we prived in our factory, They get three meals a day and they have have 5 hours of sleep. Sam Washington has a lovely family. His wife cecilia was also brought the same way he working when she was six to. Sam Washington and Cecilia meet in a field, shortly after that he had two kid.

Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution was caused by all these factors like steam power, coal extracting, iron smelting, the railways, agricultural production and industrial production. All these factors had an important role to play in the Industrial Revolution let’s take coal extracting for example. Coal extraction was what I think was the most important thing in the Industrial Revolution, because Coal extraction ran the trains which transported goods from city to city so that the people who had grown the crops and made the goods would collect money that would let them grow more crops, make more goods and support their family. Industrial Revolution helped a lot of people but also made some people lose their jobs and replaced by machines. Industrial Revolution helped increase the population and food productions, One thing that the Industrial Revolution brought in was machine and made a lot of people lose their jobs making them protest. Another factor that caused the Industrial Revolution was steam power. The steam powered the the trains which ran on the railways and helped goods to be transported and made it faster. It made a lot of people aware of the outside towns that they might have not known about because they couldn’t travel that far and it helped with education and educating kids to learn how to write and read. Before the trains there was a few amount of people in the town that knew how to read and write so when the trains opened up kids could go to school and learn how to read and write. Agricultural production also caused Industrial Revolution because the agricultural production was when they developed fertiliser and crop rotations which meant there was more food which meant more people got to be feed. All of these things caused the Industrial Revolution they all link up to the Industrial Revolution and the Industrial Revolution would have been nothing without them. They were all critical and significant to the Industrial Revolution. All of the factors have changed the world as we know it and have made things that had taken days, easy, quick and a breeze to do with machines and new technology till this present day we are still finding ways to make more modern and easier.




In English class we had to make a video of us doing a scene a the book two weeks with the queen. I think this showed collaboration because we had a group of about 3 people and we had to make sure that we where all pulling in and doing something to contribute to this project. Me and my group worked really well and all had different jobs that we would have to do to finish the project. When we had to pick what character we wanted to be everyone got the person they wanted and no one was upset with what they got. So for me I didn’t want a huge speaking role so I stuck with the nurse and did the filming.
