“Hey, how are you what are you doing today?” That's how I talk to my elders, but when I talk to my cousins I say “yo what you doin?” This is just how different the conversation between my elders and young people are, yet they mean the same thing
The language I use is one of the biggest parts of my identity. It might not change what my thought process is or what I really mean but when it comes to communication it means a lot. I have to have a switch when it comes to language use. I talk to everyone differently, I talk to my family differently than I talk to my friends and my teachers and I talk to my teachers differently than I talk to my boss or a business man/women.
When it comes to my family I talk to my parents, grandparent, aunts and uncles differently than I talk to my cousins. If I talk to my parents and older adults in my family in a bad tone or in a unmannerly fashion it's gonna make me look like a bad child but I don’t go to heavy on speaking proper, I try to speak proper while also using some slang terms that the adults would get. When I talk to my cousins, we have more of a friendly conversation. The conversations are still a little proper but I don’t care at all about my grammar. I don’t because I know they won’t judge me or really care if I didn’t say something correctly.
One time I was talking to my grandmother at a family gathering and I realized how much I articulated and said yes or no.
“Did you have a great day at school?”
“What did you do today?”
“Today we learned about catalyst in bio-chem class, so that was fun, and I also hung out with friends after school because I did not have Students Run practice”
At the same family event one of my cousins, Ana who’s more intelligent and in college asked me about school and the way I answered was completely different than when my grandmother asked me even though she was in college, she’s still my cousin.
“Did you have fun in school today?”
“Yeah, it was ard.”
“What did you do today?”
“Well ummm, I learned about this thing called catalyst and I ain’t run today so it was okay, oh yeah and I hung out with some peeps”
This was interesting to me. Why did I switch the way I said things? I knew I wanted to be respectful to my grandparents and live up to what I thought were their expectations. I talked to my cousin in that way just so I could fit in. Yeah fit in. All of my cousins speak Black English and I’m the only one who don’t. I often stay silent just because the properness in my voice would break the conversation or at least that’s what I thought would happen. There have been times where my own family called me out and said “Why do you sound white?”, that question shattered me. It made me feel like an outsider, like I was doing it wrong. I never answer to that question, I just smile to hide what’s really going on inside.
“Can I get a caramel macchiato with almond milk”
“You don’t have to call me sir, we’re in the same business and I’m no better than you, plus it makes me sound old”
“Of course dude, your such a well mannered kid”
I recently starting working at a coffee shop called Saxbys. When talking to my boss I try to say yes sir as a sign of respect to someone of a higher level. My boss doesn’t really like it or neither does he care that I call him sir. He thinks it’s really old fashion and makes him seem old. This made me question if words like sir and mam were just slang words. Sir and mam aren’t used in my generation as often. Some people misunderstand what slang words are. Most people usually think they’re uneducated words that people make up and they become words that lots of people use.Overall, I’ve learned that the way you talk to people only tell who you are unless you really know them. I think you should be proper if you do not know the person well but once you become comfortable still be a little proper but you can use a little slang.
What video did you watch in class, what was the classroom activity today?
What does this video bring to your mind in reference to the topic of bullying?
Who are you online, how do you appear?
How do you think people perceive you, based on this appearance?
What is the goal of internet trolls?
What are the positive and negative results of online anonymity?
The video was inspiring, it show people can really get hurt from online and offline bullying. The video was about a boy who was getting bullied and people didn’t help him but there was a bottom that you could click when something is getting worst. The bottom was an emoji that shows “I am a witness”.
It reminds me of the feeling people will get when they are being bullied. I makes me think about, “Am I a witness? Could I have done something?”
I appear to be a 8 year old girl who like to post videos on Youtube and sings a lot.
Based on what came up, I think people would see me as a young girl who seem to have lots of fashion ideas and likes to go out with friends.
The goal of an internet troll is they try to annoy people. For example, some will also correct people or spam others just for fun. They lie and tell stories to hurt other people.
The positive thing of being anonymity, you can do something that you would never usually do, like posting a poem, and no one will know it was you. The negative it kind of the same as the positive results because you can bully to other peers online. Although most people think because they’re anonymous that they will never be found out about, that is not completely true. the founders/creators/owners are the ones who controls who you are.
1.We watched a video about awareness for bullying
2.It makes me think that bullying is bad and people should stand up to bullies and not be bystanders
3.A jamaican cricketer comes up when you type in my name
4.I think people perceive me as a jamaican cricketer because thats the only thing the comes up when you type in my name.
5.The goal of internet trolls is to make you feel bad about yourself and to anger you6.A positive result to online anonymity is that people can't find where you live or where your family lives. A negative result is that if you're applying for a job employers can't find out about you and they might find someone else and think it's you.
- The service provider is Verizon Fios.
- My OMG (wow) moment was when I learned that my service provider could control my data and internet speeds.
- I would tell other people to use their home network to save data on your phone.
In class we watched a video of this one eyed child (animated-that would horrible) who is bullied a lot in his daily life, that we get walkthrough of. The video shows the child being verbally and physically bullied at school, and a brief glimpse at some online harassment directed towards him.
Specifically within the internet portion of this video, this makes me think about how we treat just ordinary strangers online, and how the things we say may be interpreted differently and offend some.
Online, I appear as a kid who uses social media as a way to express himself away from real life.
I believe this would make people assume that I am a slightly more aggressive and confident person than I really am.
The goal of internet trolls is to anger the person they are “trolling”.
- Online anonymity causes a lot of problems, because it is seen as a free pass for people to be hurtful and possibly offensive. It can also be a positive concept, in that people may use it as a way to express themselves in a way that they don’t feel comfortable in sharing with other people close to them.
We watched a video in which a fictional character, Jack, has a very bad day. He is physically bullied at school and then is hurt even more by online messages when he gets home. As the watcher, you can click an anti-bullying emoji to support him. After watching the video, we googled ourselves to find out our online identity.
This video shows how bullying can hurt people, physically and online. It also shows how speaking up as a bystander can help, a lot.
Most things that come up when you search me, aren’t me. My social media accounts don’t have much personal information on them either.
If a stranger were to search my name, they could think that I am any of the people that show up.
The goal of internet trolls is to upset people, or to cause a conflict and make others suffer.Online anonymity could be good or bad. Your future employers or schools could either get a good or bad impression of your supposed identity by what they find by searching you. If you have inappropriate personal posts online, that would be bad as opposed to being completely anonymous.
- write in full sentences
- explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.
- reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.
- what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?
In class we watched a bullying video that you could interact with, it was called #IamAWitness. During this activity we watched the video all the way through without interacting, we saw that as the video went on without our help the boy in it that was getting bullied just felt worse and worse. After the first time we watched it again, this time we interacted whenever we saw signs of bullying we stopped it and it made things a lot better, not only did the bullies stop bullying the boy, they actually helped him and looked out for him in a way too.
This video definitely made me questions every little thing that i do or say that someone could take very close to heart while I don't think anything of it. Since i don't have any social media yet I think the person that I am online isn't too bad. I think I’d be perceived as a busy and kind of fun person based of who I am online. Internet trolls tend to be negative, obnoxious and annoying, troller’s goals are to irritate, anger or upset whoever might happen to stumble across the troll.
When it comes to anonymity there are positive and negative outcomes, positive things could be that what you out can't necessarily be traced back to you and if something were to go wrong that person would get caught or in trouble, but then again that could be a negative side of it, if someone wrongs you on the internet it could be very difficult to find out who that person was if they were anonymous. The main thing you should take away from this post is that not only is cyberbullying wrong but any form of bullying is wrong and you should always be conscious of what you put or say on the internet because you never know who could be watching or reading and you never know who could get hurt by what you post. Remember, your words have powers so use them wisely.
- a photo
- an intro paragraph including name, age and origin
- a paragraph about their physical characteristics and personality
- a paragraph about their likes and dislikes
- words from the "Más Palabras para Ti" page of your unit packet. BOLD THEM.
- Close with a question. Your choice! You can ask the reader about their personality, about their likes/dislikes. You can ask if they like specific things (¿Te gusta...?).
