Final Blog

Part One:Article 13
1.The article was about a woman named Jancee Dunn, who was a  huge traveler and would go to a lot of places. One day she found a travel company that chose where you would go on vacation based on questions you answered, without you finding out until you get to the airport. Jancee was sent to Fogo Island, an island in Newfoundland, and she loved it,it gave her a new perspective in traveling.

2.The purpose of the article was to let people know that it's nice to try new things, because you can get an experience that you never thought you would have.

3.The text structure being used in the article is sequence and order.

4. The title was big ,plain, and bold. It changes to small and not that bold during the rest of the article. There is an illustration of a woman walking up to the desk at the airport while dragging her suitcases behind her. It mostly just decorates the article. The illustration is the only type of drawing/picture of the article.

Part Two:
I believe that there is such disparity between the results,  because men don’t get the same points of view and experiences as woman. A lot more women, than men, said the statement was false because men are usually only told that it is true/false rather than actually experiencing it themselves. They may get the chance to see it but most of their thoughts about the subject come from other people. Woman on the other hand, experience things every day that tell differently than being treated equal. Here is a list of things that show women aren't treated equal.

Recap: I usually don't really watch shows that my mom loves because I tend to not like them, but I watched a couple short episodes of a show she liked with her and it made her feel really happy that I did that.

1. Social media can improve your quality of life. You can meet so many more people and gain tons of friends through social media. It's also easier to keep in touch with people and let people know what you're up to.

2. Some of Shawn's passions were being adventurous, snowboarding, and living life everyday to the fullest. Some of my  passions are singing and acting.

3. Two parts of social media are the creators and the consumers. The creators put stuff on the internet and the consumers are the people that look at the things posted. The creators have the power to influence people in either a good or bad way. The consumers have the power to help those creators put information out and help people too.

4.That you shouldn't listen to people putting you down, because you will be able to do what you want without hate in your life.

1. I don’t remember a lot of the Lollipop moments in my life. My dad goes on these business trips every once in awhile. Whenever he goes on these trips, he always gets us these small things. It's usually candy or a hat or something but I love them. It makes me feel so happy whenever he gets us stuff and I don’t think he even pays that much attention to that stuff.  I always remember them though, and it makes me feel so happy.




2. “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.”- Marianne Williamson. This quote means that people aren’t afraid of not being able to do something, they are afraid we will but with much more power than we thought there would be. That one day, there will be something so powerful that was created that may be bigger and stronger than we ever imagined. Yes, I agree with what she said. People are capable of doing so much more than what is thought, and that one day there could be something that  is really powerful.

1. A Classic is a book that is very popular that has been read numerous times and never gets old. They are books that everyone knows about even if they never read the book themselves. They come from generation before you but are still being read decades later. Here is a list of reasons books are classics.

2. A literary canon is a collection of books that are measured in literary skill and value. There are a lot of popular literary canons. “To Kill A Mockingbird” and “The Great Gatsby” are a couple of examples of a literary canon.

3. No, books should not be banned. I believe that books should be read even if they are a little inappropriate because they can be literary classics, and they provide good stories and messages. Schools wanted to ban “Of Mice and Men” because it contains racial epithets, and because there was vulgar language throughout the book.

1. During the Dust Bowl, a lot of people got dust pneumonia. Dust pneumonia is a medical condition caused by the inhalation of dust and dirt.The dust and dirt would get into your lungs and make it hard for you to breathe. Some symptoms were coughing spasms, shortness of breath and body aches. It could also cause people to feel nauseated and not be able to keep down food. Death is also another symptom.

2. There were some remedies for Dust pneumonia. Some people would rub vaseline in their noses to try and stop them from breathing in a lot of dust. Other people would sometimes make chest plasters to help as well.In this link  here , it explains more about the Dust bowl. It also explains that the Dust Bowl was caused by a major drought.The drought caused it to be hard to grow things and then from the over-plowed and over-grazed ground, there was more dust that would then be blown around.

3.If I had to leave suddenly with my family and I could only pack one bag, I would pack clothes and books. I would also pack small things that mean stuff to me if I had enough room in the bag. The hardest part about that would be leaving my friends and knowing that I would probably never see them again. It would also be hard to leave all my other stuff and house too.

  1. The PSA was effective. The way they made it seem so real with the imagery was a reason. The make-up that they used to make the actors seem hurt looked real. The actors and actresses also did great by making it seem real. The screaming and the things that were said made it real too. The noises during the crash also were great and made it seem even more real.
  2. Here is another PSA that is effective. This PSA shows a boy preparing for a school shooting while two people are communicating on a desk. The main boy is trying to figure out who the girl is and in the background the school shooter is watching and reading and posting things about shooting and guns. It shows him at the end pull out a gun in the gym and everyone running. It is trying to get people to realise that someone could be preparing for that and to watch out and not let another school shooting happen.

1. Whether a person has a diploma or not effects their health. When a person has a diploma, they are able to get better jobs than a person that doesn't have one because they have the education needed. If someone isn't able to get a good job, or any job at all, then they won't make a lot or any money. If that person were to get sick or hurt, they wouldn't have the money to get the proper care they need. Since people that don't have diplomas can't get a job that provides enough money for them, then they won't be able to pay or even get medical insurance.

2. Students who didn't get their high school diploma can be harmful to society. Their health can be a way that they are harmful, because they can get other people sick without having medical care. They also won't be able to afford housing and things like that, so it will cause more people to live on the street. They won't be able to afford things so they would probably cause the crime rate to go up because of them stealing. Some of them can also make our taxes go up because they need money to live on from the government.

3. The percentage of how many high school freshman won't graduate is very high, and it causes the schools and communities to get bad publicity and reputations. Schools can help with the rate of how many freshman don't graduate though. The schools could provide extra help to the students that are struggling.The students that aren't struggling in schools, but are having problems outside of school, could be provided councilors and other people to help them with that. They could even bring down the amount of stress they put on kids by giving them less work and tests.
