Each trimester, we are given the task of choosing a book from our school Lending library. This month I have the possibility of choosing a wonderful book called Atonement by Ian McEwan. To let you notice I have read it, I will discuss the main characters and events that have taken place in the novel. Here is my book tube.
With our teacher Pilar we saw a part of a movie called In pursuit of happiness and we had to finish it at home. We did some activities about it and then in pairs we have to write a letter. This is the letter I wrote with Victoria Lupi and Trinidad Torrendell.
How are you? I would like to say I am good but the fact is that I am not. I have my hands tied. I don’t have enough money to make ends meet. I need you to give me a hand. We are living on the breadline and I don’t want to do this to Chris. Things got out of hands we can barely survive. Can you put a good word in for me in your company? We are facing the worst economic situation ever. We need to start from scratch. I can not sleep a wink anymore. Please help me.
With our history teacher, Lenny Ambrosini, we were given the task to create a source on our own by choosing a topic. In my case I chose to create a: Soviet cartoon criticizing Stalin while Khrushev was in power.
In the source you can see:
Satellite countries (Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Poland) each with the correct flag. There are lots of words in each of the satellites countries that represents all what Stalin had done in a way, critizing Stalin, for example: the limits he impossed to the people of those countries to travel, the limited freedom of speech, the purges, etc.
Nikita Khrushchev: this is the new leader of the Soviet Union who is going to change Stalin’s ruling, starting de process of DE-STALINISATION. That’s the reason why in his foot has de word DE-STALINISATION. The left foot is stepping on the stat elite countries and all that had happened during Stalin’s mandate (COLD WAR). But the right foot is stepping on Russia where he is goint to start the big change.
SYMBOL OF COMMUNISM: behind Nikita Khrushchev you can see the symbolism Of communism big as the power of communism that represents the whole Russia and Eastern European countries.
Our teacher of Literature gave us the task of looking at two videos that will help us understand this poem and will give us ideas to prepare our own videos on other poems!
Here are both of the videos we have to look at :
Both videos were clear enough to me. Although, If I would have to choose between both videos I would choose the second one. Why? Because, he used animations (photos) and creativity to explain a poem, what I found it really interesting and entertaining. Clear analysis that would help you to understand the poem.
To prepare the Lending Library we were given the task to make a Book tube focusing on some aspects, as it is impossible to cover all of them. I have chosen to describe the book cover and explain how it relates to the story I have read (Gangsta rap) and create one of my own. Then, I would have to express how I felt about the book and why.
