Boys and Girls Ultimate: State Championships
Teams must qualify.
We started this project on perspective by sketching a horizontal line and putting in a vanishing point. We then made a box from on top of the point, under the point and connected each vertex to get a view on what perspective is. Then we started working on our rooms making sure everything was connected by the vanishing point and we had to measure everything down to a corresponding size.
The process we used was to make an equal rectangle somewhere in the middle of our paper and in the middle of that we put the vanishing point. From there we counted how many ceiling tiles and for example my wall have 12 so I made my bow length 24in and each time 2in. And drawn the lines every 2ins from the vanishing point. I did the same thing with the floor tiles but I did then every inch and then from the middle of the tiles I put about a 45-degree angle to the end of the tiles and at each intersection I crossed them. I then put the pillars in but making 2 lines, one thicker than the other and made the lines go into the ceiling and floor.
The things that were easy for me where tiles and pillars.
The things that were hard for me were the table, couch, and windows.
I think Michael completed the assignment well.
Some other abuses can be when the person was little. They could be abuse when they were little, and the anger from that could build up and take it out on other people. This is another example of people who take their anger out on people. They hit, and even kill people. This isn’t intentionally but it is hurtful to others that are the ones getting abuse. Sometimes the person that is getting abuse is the person the abuser doesn’t wants to abuse but they picture you as the other person they want to get back at.
What I had the most trouble with is finding articles and events that happened in the year I was going research in. It was hard because I didn’t want to find anything that didn’t have anything to do with my project. I thought that some things where that important. However, any event to me in African American History is important.
The best part of the project was being able to sit there and listen to the resins behind why they loved it. Though my Dad didn’t really have a resin
besides the fact that he liked it. The resins were almost as good as the songs them selves. Music is a big part of my everyday environment. The music from before I was born was some of the best of it’s time.
The hardest part was the articles because I could never find one from 1995 that I liked in the lest. When I looked I looked for hours and still couldn’t find anything I liked. Thoughs articles just weren’t up to my standards. I don’t exactly like the ones I picked but I couldn’t exactly find any others.
For example back then in 1965 my grandmother had to live the life of racism. Her life was very hard because she couldn’t go to the places she wanted to go to and she couldn’t do the things she wanted to do. So right know we have the right to do things we want to do and we have better opportunities. So from this project I learned to be very thankful for not living the life in 1965 because if you did you would live the life of racism also.
I believe the best part of the project was to get pictures from the internet and get music from gosong.net. I believe the most difficult part of the project was to find the different events in the year 1965. On the New York Times website the events didn’t go all the way back to 1965. Instead it stopped at 1975. Overall I had so much fun doing this project and I learned many things from it.

The 10-20-30 project combined learning with fun. We got to find our own recourses and analyze the articles, while at the same time we got to ask older people what kinds of music they listened to, which also gives us insight into the last generation.
Finding the articles and music was equally troubling and rewarding. When finding the music we got to listen all of the different music from our past and analyze it so that we could explain it when we inserted it into our projects. When we where finding the articles it was extremely trying. The articles where harder to find than a needle in a haystack. These two different experiences helped me gain insight into the way my brain works and what I would like better in my future.
With this project I really felt like I learned a lot. I never could stop working to accomplish finding articles or writing and revising. When doing this project, their where mixtures of hard work, and enjoyed strife. With this project I felt like SLA’s true nature was revealed.
The design part was probably the hardest part for me. I am not “artistically gifted”, so trying to design a page was hard for me. I knew what I wanted my page to look like, but it was hard for me to try and do it. Overall I loved this project, not only because of the work I did; but what I learned the most is from other people. My classmate’s projects taught me a whole lot.
When it came to 10-20-30, I was a little hesitant. Not having much of a music background myself I thought I would find this benchmark difficult. But when I first started it started to flow in my mind. How I would do it, and how I would end it. What I would use and how I would apply it. With every project, there are ups and downs. The best part was having an epiphany, while the worst part being, trying to ask my parents about music.
Starting from the worst part. When it was made clear that I had to ask my parents, I put my head down. “This is going to be difficult.” I said to myself. So I went out of my way to go and find music that I thought they would like, which I ultimately did at the end. The excitement of getting that part completed was simply overwhelming.
Ending at the best part. When I was struggling to come up with ideas and designs, I thought I was going to fail. Then out of nowhere when I was eating, it just came to me. A great idea just popped into my head like Mr. Sherif’s random dancing. Applying everything that had come up and adding stuff on over time, I took a final look at the project; it was amazing in my eyes.
In the end, overcoming challenges give you such a huge sense of accomplishment that will be noted by teachers and peers alike. I was proud of my work and I was not hesitant to turn it in.
