Blog post: intro poetry reflection

What I think a poem should have is stanzas and emotions like sadness, happiness etc. poems also should hav short sentences which creates stanzas. A poem should not have a rithem like a song. What I notice that was different from Williams poem and Bradstreet was that Williams poems were smaller and Bradstreets poem was long. Williams poems talks about how someone ate plums and the other poem from Williams was about a red wheel barrow is all they need. What I noticed that was similar between them two was that they were poems. They also had imagery.

Blog: "When is there dignity in silence?"

Silence gives you dignity because if someone calls you names then they may stop talking because you kept silence.

Blog Fourteen: Thinking

 The parts that most interest me in The Giver was when Jonas had an idea of escaping so that he can spread all the memories to his community. And how The Giver said that he's not going with Jonas to elsewhere.

In my independent book (I Hunt Killers), the most interesting part was when Jazz (main character, a child of a serial killer) told G Williams (chief of the detectives) straight to his face that he (Jazz) is going to figure out  the crime (there was someone died and jazz want to figure it out) but G. Williams won't let her me but jazz won't quit to figure it out.

The part that most bothers me in The Giver was at the end where Jonas just calapsed from music or it may just have been an echo.

The part that most bothered me in my independent book (I Hunt Killers) was in the begining, when Jazz was hiding from all the cops in the crime scene, he was crawling away from the crime scene and hiding.

Blog 13: Famous

I would rather be known during my life time and then after my death I'm unknown. I want to do this because if I'm unknown and die I can't and don't feel all the love and caring If I'm known during my life time I can and will feel all the love and caring.

Blog 12: legacy

I want to be know for having good grades and being a good student. I hope people remember who I was, how I accomplished having good grades. I hope People forget all the bad things I did. Like not participating during class sometimes. I hope I made this school (Freedom Middle School) know that it's possible and it has been done multiple times. I think I'm not really on the same track but I believe that I'm able to change.

Blog 11: Reaction

I can't believe that Jonas's dad injected something into the smaller baby and the baby passed away and Jonas found out and The Giver showed Jonas a recording of his dad injecting some sort of serum into the smaller baby. Jonas cried and was mad and his dad. I feel bad for the smaller baby and the bigger baby because then the bigger baby won't have a twin brother.

Blog 10: understanding

for me I feel like Jonas's community in his point of view seems a little messed up. I think this because in the text it says that The Giver and Jonas were talking about how the community is keeping secrets from the citizens. Between Our community and Jonas's community I think I'm better in our community because no one  wants things hidden from them.

Blog 9: Imagine

This song "Imagine" by John Lennon is about kind of freedom, John Lennon says "Imagine there's no countries it isn't hard to do....Living life in peace"

This song "Imagine" by John Lennon relates to the giver because in "The Giver" there sameness and nobody is jealous or anything, everybody is treated fairly.

Blog 8: Freedom

Gun control is making our society hard for us to be kind together. What I think about gun control is that we should just stop selling guns. But if something happens like an invasion of North Korea comes then we may have guns out just to protect us. This "Freedom" did not portrayed in the giver because the giver never said or tells us that there is or/was guns in Jonas's society

Blog 7: Jonas POV Change

Jonas' point of view from others in his community by The Giver, The Giver is giving Jonas transmissions. Jonas gets images that are like how he knows what a sunburn is, sunshine, and snow. Others in his community don't know what snow, sunburn, and sunshine is.

Blog 6: New Chapter Titlte

I chose chapter 10 and I'm changing its title to "The Begining of his New Life" because in this chapter Jonas gets a "New Life"

Conformity

through class discussion there is no differences, everything is the same and there is no fighting. Conformity takes away jealousy because everybody is the same. Unity is going on. Unity is being together, now that the community is conformitive.

What If

If we didn't know any historical event then we would be on the bottom of the foundation. Because we built up in our foundation, like we built on technology and music and weapons etc. we wouldn't have anything. We would be like cave men. We need historical events. We wouldn't have any security in airports because we didn't know about the 911.

Blog One: Career Choices

The pros of having someone pick my career are maybe that someone will pick a career would be something that I like. Another pro of having someone choosing your career is that you can see and or explore a new career. Another pro is that you can also get new friends.

The cons of someone picking my career are that they may pick a career that I hate or don't like. Another con of someone selecting my career is that if someone may choose for me to go to the army. I may not want to go. Then you'll get mad at that person who chose your career. Another con is that some people may be angry and hate each other which would cause chaos.
