Semester Test Project John Greenleaf Whittier once said, “God gives quietness at last.” This was a theme apparent throughout the poem, "from Snowbound." This poem was mainly about the family relationships and the interaction with nature during a snowstorm. The snowstorm allowed peace and quietness around the farm. It also allowed for the family to slow their daily activities and appreciate their time together as a family unit. This is an often occurring theme in all of Whittier's works. While completing this project, I learned a lot about family relations and the way a family unit normally works. At the Lampe household, I saw the family from our poem shape up and come to life right before my very eyes. I also learned that video recording and editing takes a lot of patience and planning. the better planned it is, the easier it is to plug things in exactly where you planned them. This helped us to cut down on the amount of time we spent on the various aspects of the project. If my group hadn't been as planned out as we were, we wouldn't have been able to create our project in the three hours that we did, which includes taping, editing, and dvd rendering. The essential concepts we discovered and displayed in our project were Family Relationships and Through Nature Humans Can Understand Big Ideas. We chose these three because they were all mentioned often and were repeated themes throughout the excerpt of the poem. Family Relationships was mentioned in the poem when the father told the children to build a path, when the children worked together to do their chores, and when they were sitting around the fireplace at the end of the poem. We displayed this by having the "three sisters" in our movie and their mother making the hot chocolate for them when they came inside from building the tunnel together. We added Through Nature Humans Can Understand Big Ideas into our project by talking about the tunnel named "Aladdin." This came from the first time they see the snowfall in the poem and they are comparing it to various cultural references around the world, such

On research day I went to the Hispanic Student Achievement and learning academy intervention program. She did a study about Hispanic culture because the drop out rate is so high. The percent of Hispanic students that drop out of school is 25 percent and its 1 and 4 of all ethnicities. She wanted to know if making the students at risk for dropping out have more attention by teachers and have them go into a regular classroom if their scores and…
job during high school which only adds to the stress. With an extra year of high school not only would students have time to think through big decisions, but they would also be better able to balance work with school.
Time is so fleeting in this day and age. There is never enough time. No time for family, no time for relaxing, no time for sleep. Even if some time is stolen to recooperate, aren't the youth told that if they rest at…
There was one major difference between POWs in the USSR and POWs in America during and after WW2. The book One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich vividly illustrates life in a Soviet gulag, from the cruel abuse prisoners suffered at the hands of their guards to the freezing temperatures they were forced to labor in. POWs in America were well protected, often paid for their services, given food and shelter and generally sent home after the end of the war. The difference…

reaching his goals. The article's theme of returning to school as an adult is a hilarious rehashing of the trials and tribulations of one man’s experience of learning French in Paris because author David Sedaris uprooted his life at the age of 41, enrolled into French class with a merciless teacher, and persevered through it all. In the article, "Me Talk Pretty One Day", the tone is set immediately with the first sentence, "Welcome to French class, where you must learn to juggle irregular verbs, flying…

bullying situation. If your school doesn’t have an anti-bullying policy, then develop one for your classroom. It’s important for all kids to know that bullying behavior is unacceptable.
To ensure that bullying prevention efforts are successful, all school staff needs to be trained on what bullying is what the school’s policies and rules are, and how to enforce the rules. Training may take many forms: staff meetings, one-day training sessions, and teaching through modeling preferred behavior. Schools may…
This is a writing that I created to enter a website. The title sounds nice and it's about as nice as it's going to get. That being said, I'd love to be a writer one day. Who knows maybe my sons will find this one day. If they do, Noah and Joey I love you. Dad.
Also this requires some length to the essay. Not sure how long this musing must go on for. I'm writing it from my phone so not the best. Noah in case you are wondering, I'm writing this while you are taking a bath. You're playing with some…
