DWA Publishing 1st Quarter

DWA: 

DWA 9/05/17
Imagination is more important than Knowledge. Do you agree or disagree? Explain:

        Yes, I agree that imagination is more important than knowledge because if your job involves knowledge but not imagination, you might make a decent sum of money, but you won't be as happy as if you made less money but were pursuing something you are passionate about. Say working in an office versus being an author.

DWA //17
Would you rather give or get gifts?

        Not to be selfish, but probably get because I want stuff, & there's nothing wrong with liking to get stuff more than to get stuff more than to give stuff even though the world tells us there is.

Words of Wisdom

During this project, I found some thing that everyone generally agrees with. Things like follow your dreams, do things that make you happy, and never give up. I see these as good things, because, after all, we all have our dreams, including me. :3

History Day Reflection

My History Day Project was on Saint Valentine. 1) Saint Valentine was, surprise, a Saint. A Saint is someone who is acknowledged as holy and virtuous. My category was the exhibit category, where you make something people look at and read, usually with decorations, colorfulness, and tape. Lots, and lots, of tape(my partner and I used glitter tape :D). 2) I like how aesthetically pleasing our board turned out. 3) That he was arrested more than once and that more than one person has his name. 4) The research, because he was born in the 3rd century, so no one he knew is alive, or their grandkids. 5) I learned that you need to look at every website before you do your research. 6) I don't know, I think we did pretty solidly. 7) Getting the research done, because we weren't that sure we'd be able to. 9) I don't really have much to say except try you hardest, work your hardest, and don't procrastinate! BTW; My partner is/was Kaylee Pringle.

Shakespeare Reflection

Write about the change in your feelings from first hearing we were doing a Shakespeare unit through now.  Explain specifically what events changed your feelings.

My first thought when we found out we were going to do a Shakespeare unit was... 'cool'. And not 'Coooooool!'. just... 'cool'. If there was an equivalent to a cool with only 1 'o' to emphasize how unenthusiastic(while still interested) I was, that would be it. Now I think 'THAT WAS SO FUN! I HOPE WE GET TO DO THAT AGAIN!'

In The Taming of the Shrew, was Kate tamed in the end?  Explain your opinion with examples from the text.

Personally, I don't think so, at least not all the way. In the end when she gave her speech about obedience, I feel like it was more a speech about willingness to serve others. She talks about a debt a wife owes to her husband, and that we should put our hand under their feet, but I feel like it was more about willingness to respect each other. My thoughts about this are that during the movie, Petruchio wasn't fighting to make her obedient really, they were fighting giving each other respect. They didn't want to give each other respect, but for a healthy marriage, you need respect. You have to have willingness before you have obedience. I went kind of off topic there, but none the less, Kate isn't being tame, she just found the willingness to obey, and they both found the willingness to respect each other, and that, my fellow students, is what is most important in a marriage
