Climbing Into Other People’s Skin

Image result for kids standing in shoes

 

When Atticus says to Scout to climb into another person’s skin, what does that mean? Well, he is trying to say how we need to try and see things from other people’s point of view. He doesn’t mean it literally to climb into another person’s skin. That would just be really werid. He means to put youself in their shoes and see what their life is like and what they are going through. I do this sometimes, but only if I feel like doing it. When I do it, I look for someone and try to feel what they are feeling and try to help them.

Empathy

Image result for empathy

The Definition of Empathy is the abilty to understand and share the feelings of another. But empathy to me is to help others and understanding what they are going through. An experience I’ve had with empathy was last year during the summer and my friend had a horrible injury from tumbling. Her back was fractured for the whole summer which is not fun at all. So every day or every other day, I would text her to see if she was doing better. She wasn’t. So I went to her house anytime I could to help her with her injury, and tried to get her mind off of it so she could have a great summer. And I did that most of the summer to make sure that she was well and happy.

2nd Semester Goals and Aspirations

Image result for goals

The thing I was best at in English 1st semester was Purpose and Audience, Technology Use, Introduce a topic, and Conclusion Paragraph. I did really well in Technology Use because that was when we did something on our our blogs and I just enjoyed doing that in class and it wasn’t really that hard to do, you just needed to answer the promet that was given to you and add a picture. The thing I struggled with the most was Analysis of Literature because that was when we had to anotate articles and write a response on the article. I can improve on this by reading it more carfully and just improve on it. The goals I have for this semester is get better in the parts I’m struggling most and improve on them over the year.

Design Thinking

What do you think of this process?  What I think about this process is a good process to use when you have to read a poem or story and make a presentation on it. This can help you sort things out when you do a presentation. Do you think it will be useful for you? This to me, is useful because if I have to present something to someone, I can use this process to help me understand what most of the audience wants to here. This will do me good in the future because if I’m in collage, and I have to do soemthing to present what we’re doing, this will help me understand what is expected of me and what to do.

Promoting Change

Image result for change

We live in a changing society. This makes me wonder, is it our responsibility to promote change in society? I think yes, because if you think about it, people are doing stuff right now in society that is changing it. We should promote change, but in the right place, at the right time, and with a right mindset. If not, then something bad could happen in society if not at the right time and place. We can promote change by just doing the littlest things to others and in our lives. By doing this, we can promote change in the society.

Thanksgiving Words of the Week

“It’s Thanksgiving!” Abby said. This is my favorite hoilday because this is the one day where I get to see my whole famliy together. Abby was waiting by the window to greet her family when they came. Everyone was there, except her recluse cousin Suzi. Why wasn’t she there? Suzi doesn’t like thankigiving at all because she’s not a fan of people like the rest of her family. But then she showed up with her family late to thanksgiving dinner, as usual. Everyone sat around the bif round table. They all had asigned sits for everyone. Abby had to sit next to Suzi. When everyone started eating, Abby saw that Suzi was eating repugnant. She was eating with her mouth open and shoving food in her mouth. But Abby still loves her no matter what she does, because Suzi is still family.

The Search for the Perfect Book

This book sounds really good from the views I read so far and people told me to read it because it’s good also. This drews my attention because it’s about this girl Hazel who has a tumor, which is really sad to hear. But then this boy, Augustus Waters, shows up and changes Hazels life forever. I really like love stories like this one because I just love reading about this types of things and I just want to read it when I’m done with my other books. It also has a lot of drama and sad parts in it. I’ve heard from the views that therei s some funny parts in there too. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I am so excited to read this book as soon as possible.

How I Define Equality

Image result for equality

Equality means that everyone is equal, boy or girl it doesn’t matter, we are all equal in our own unique ways. Declaration of Independence. These words are the foundation of our society, and yet many people don’t understand them. They must not be self evident, if we can’t agree on what they mean. I think that when they say “all men are created equal”. They mean that we are all equal before the law and God, because that is what was important to them and that is what they were looking for. I think that the government in “Harrison Bergeron” wasn’t the exact meaning of equality that I was thinking of.

The Sticky Issue of Equality

Image result for equality

What is equality? The definition of equality is: the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities. What I think equality is that everyone is born equal. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are equal. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are equal . But how does this make us all equal? We are all equal in our own ways. Some people are born with a unique talent of their own. Some people are born with different color of hair or eyes. It doesn’t matter what we look like or what we can do, we are all made equal.
