Post #1: Historical Thinking

A recurring theme from Socials 9 was that history repeats itself. Branching off of that, I think this year we could really focus on seeing what we get out of mistakes we made in the past, and how it impacts us as people of the present and future. History is made up of created legacies stacked up on one another. Each legacy leaves an impression and impact and how they.. Read More

Romeo and Juliet Act II: Critical Response

1. I believe that Romeo and Juliet are engaging in a more mature love rather than an immature and childish one. This is because Juliet is rather blunt and honest about the circumstances they are in if they were to get married. Rather than spending the night daydreaming about Romeo, upsettingly, she states how in order to avoid the circumstances, Romeo must either “‘deny [his] father and refuse [his] name,’”.. Read More

ZIP Document of Learning #3:

My progress so far has been going great and I started working on binding my chapbook. However I’m currently in a slight dilemma between different layouts and styles. I think I will figure that out in our next work block. Although I’m a terrible drawer, I will still be adding my own illustrations mainly because I have specific images that come up in my mind for the poems. I want.. Read More

How I Can Be a 360° Leader

One of the many things I can apply to my life from this book is to see everyone as a 10. I can do this by focusing on people’s strengths rather than their weaknesses. Everybody has their own flaws but I can always work to see the potential they have in them, and see what type of great leader they may be able to become. For instance, if I am.. Read More

ZIP Proposal

The question I’d like to pursue through this process is: What are the steps one might consider when self publishing their own poems? I really enjoy putting my emotions into words that I cannot really say aloud. I’ve always done it in my spare time as a hobby so just thinking about doing what I love to do for a school project is extremely exciting for me. Obviously this won’t.. Read More

Document of Learning 1: What Margaret Has Taught Me As A Human Being

Margaret Cho: a fierce, compassionate, and a compelling warrior and survivor. Through her public battles and advocations she was able to help and empower countless people of different backgrounds and identities.   Something I said I’d like to improve on in my introductory post is stating my opinions and beliefs accurately and advocating for them. I think this was a good goal for the type of eminent person I chose for.. Read More
