Q4 Benchmark Reflection
What is your project about?
My project was all about me and what I used to be like as a baby and what I am like now. Compared to what I want to do when I grow up. I made a storybook because I thought that was the best way to get my creativeness out there. I also think that this was the best way to describe and show what I can do.
What did you like about it?
I liked that this was a very free project and that it was individual. I liked that I didn’t have to rely on anyone for anything and I could do whatever I wanted with my project. I also liked that we had many options on what direction to go and what to do with this project.
What would you do differently?
I would use more personal pictures and drawn less.
My element is Selenium. My element is used to make red glass that can be used for candleholders. It can also convert AC electricity to DC electricity. I thought of this print because of the candleholders. It seamed like a cool idea. I had to draw the print on a piece of paper. Then I traced the picture backwards onto tracing paper. Then I traced it from the tracing paper onto a linoleum block backwards again. Next I carved the positive space out and made prints of it. I then had to glue the prints onto black paper and take pictures. I think this was a fun project and it was easy. I would do this project the same and doing nothing differently.
I took a lot from the year I also took more understanding from in English class with our poetry unit. We wrote about whatever we wanted, but we had a certain form of poem we had to write. I wrote a poem about my dad it said, "Ever since that day I wished you were the father I thought you would be." From writing this poem I learned that peoples expressions or words can really tell who they are.Another understanding from this year was something I learned from the letter we had to write somebody in english class. In this project I wrote a letter to my best friend Patrick. He made me realize that words from others can make you think twice about life. He just was apart of a bad situation and his action reminded me of something we read during class. This letter made me really think and it actually made him realize his wrong.
The last and final thing I took from this year was the ability to be able to write and express how I felt. This all came from the journals we wrote and creative pieces and descriptive pieces we worked on throughout the year. The understanding is that the expression of writings actually brings out the best in you. I took this understanding from a descriptive writing piece I wrote about several scenes put into one to create a story. "He popped the question,” will you marry me?" This was the night when my stepdad proposed to my mom, this part in time of my life brought out the best of me and by writing about it made it show whom I was and how I reacted to the fact of everything going on.
Now that you have seen some of the work I have done throughout the year I hope you got an understanding of the things I did during the year. This year went by so fast and we did so many things in both English and History. From all the work I have done I got the biggest understanding of all. From the beginning of year to the end you receive more then you think you can handle, and you become a brand new person in the end of it all.
