I think it’s super valuable because it shows you the real world and how it works. It also lets you get to know your parents a bit more and see what they go through day and night. I find this also very valuable because it lets you experience working when your older and see if you would want to do something like that.

My rap video

 

 

 

I had picked critical thinking because I had thought this core competency best suited my presentation and rap assignment. I think it best suits this assignment because the assignment involved lots of thinking and generate ideas/thoughts to make lyrics for the rap song. I also, think it suits this assignment very well because you have to experiment with different beats for the lyrics to best suit the beat. Making the lyrics I had to experiment and help my group members to make them and give them ideas that helped us all together generate ideas for lyrics. Doing this made us all contribute which made the lyrics even better. We would try and take a risk like changing the entire beat or background song to make it easier for some of us or make it sound better.

Ways I would love to improve would be like to generate more ideas for the presentation or better or longer lyrics. Making or developing more ideas for the presentation would help a lot because it will catch the teacher and audience attention a lot more and maybe they will find a lot more interest in the presentation. Having longer and more meaningful lyrics would help a lot because first off, this first presentation was very repetitive and slow to the point you couldn’t really have long lyric mainly due to the slow beat. Not having too meaningful lyrics put us on a little set back because it didn’t add much interest to it.

What I Want to Learn in English 9

What I Want to Learn in English 9

In English 9 I would like to learn to do public speaking, reading, fixing my grammar, and novel studies. I would like to do these subjects because they are things I need to work on and what I find interesting in English. For public speaking because I like to stand up and speak to the class and present my best work. For reading, I don’t typically read but I do like to read. I’m mainly interested in adventure novels, action, historical books, and of course comedy. I would like to read in class because I don’t always have the time to read at home because I’m always busy doing other work or have something to do. I would really like to fix my grammar because I don’t have the best grammar or I don’t typically know when to add punctuation. I really like to get into novel studies because I like to read and explain what happened in the section of the book I have read. These are all the things I want to learn in English 9.

 

My critical thinking had improved through English 9 so far. I say that because I had to generate ideas and develop ideas. My critical thinking had also improved in my poems because i had to base my poem off something which made me have to generate ideas to start the poem. Me having to generate ideas wasn’t the easiest thing but after having to do all these poems and keep having to generate ideas helped me out in a big way. Doing poems in English 9 started off slightly hard because i wasn’t the best at building up ideas, but after doing these poems they had helped me practice and get better. So now they aren’t the hardest thing for me. I had also, needed to develop ideas to write lines for my poetry which i had or figure out how to add poetic devices to the lines. Doing that made me be able to develop ideas better and helped practice doing it.
