My role in this group was cinematographer, which means that i was the one behind the camera recording most of the time. My successes in this project is that I was always able to complete everything on time that was assigned to me and i was in class everyday on time and ready to film.
My group worked together pretty well, and a good example of this is that one film trailer is already complete and are working on a second trailer. Some things that was difficult was having to depend on people in my group to show on time or even show up at all.
The Last Apprentice #2 by Joseph Delaney might leave a reader feeling intense. The Spook and his apprentice, Thomas Ward, rid the county of witches, ghosts, boggarts, and other creatures of the dark.

The project we were assigned was either to do a Monologue which i picked or a Photo essay. The photo essay requires to take 70 % of the pictures and the background to have our voice reading a page of the book. I picked the Monologue because you can act it out and looks more simple. I picked the page 19 from chapter 2. I picked a page from the beginning so people can tell the difference of him being innocent and how he changed to an attitude of not caring. The page has two important components, his mom, and how he acts towards her.
The book I've been reading lately is called West Africa by Eugene L.Mendonsa who wrote about the post-colonial period of African countries who received independence from European colonizers since the 1400's. The part that I have read is about Ghana who was colonized by many European countries such as the Dutch, Danes, French, Portugese and British. The many tribes of the Gold Coast were not particularly happy with the settlement except the Fante who were promised protection by the British. Due to competition in the area, the British and Dutch began a war over territory, burning forts down.

Chapter 7 was an awesome part of this book Grace. Lucado speaks about confession in this chapter, and making it very clear what it is. The thing I always felt about confession, before I was saved, was that it was someone full of shame, telling God what He already knows and others that he or she was hiding something. Accurate? Now I don’t think so.
This whole project is to make people understand the whole plot in "Down These Mean Streets" by Piri Thomas.during this project/assignment we will be perfoming a single page, it will be by making facial expresion and emotion coming out, emotion that the character could be feeling during the story.somthing that our eyes or mind could not catch during the reeding

The first chapter of What do sustainability mean n Hunts Point, the Bronx by Sam Samouha might leave a reader feeling disappointed about what is happening to the community of Hunts Point.
“With an employment rate estimated at 24 percent, uniquely high rates of crime, a lack of fresh food access, and extreme levels of industrial pollution, the neighborhood unfortunately continues to face immense obstacles.”
Have you ever dreamed to do something in a different country? To have a better salary than the last one? Well, it changes, some dreams become reality. Some dreams just crash down, torn apart. Most dreams are half achieved and need to be accomplished over the years. The character Sundara in Children of The River, didn’t achieve her American Dream when she was here when she arrived. Even though she came to America safely from the war in Cambodia, she didn’t achieve it when she was in America. Her main American Dream is to be a doctor and help her people back in Cambodia.
I believe that Margaret Rose Nolan partially achieved the ‘American Dream’ in Ashes of Roses by Mary Jane Auch. I believe this because it is evident in three major parts of the novel. Although she achieves many things, it comes to an end when tragedy strikes in the book. When she experiences freedom on being independent, is eligible to get a job to provide for her younger sister Maureen, and when she assimilates by making close friends who help her. Margaret Rose truly matures thought out the book and achieves the ‘American Dream’ half way.
Why do immigrants come to America? Many immigrants come for jobs, education or just a good life for their family. A lot of immigrants face many problems coming to America or when they do reach America. They might have a hard time fitting in or speaking the language. Some don’t even achieve the American Dream in many cases. The character of the book,Behind the Mountains by Edwidge Danticat, goes through a lot to achieve her American Dream.

Holden Caulfield is a wealthy teen attending Pencey Prep, who has no respect for anyone, save a few. The book takes place mostly over a period of two days, in which Holden runs away from school, lies constantly about who he is, spends most of the time drunk, meets a prostitute whose pimp steals all of his money, and ruins a relationship with a girl who might actually like him.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama relatively agree on the United States' education; they both agree that online schooling will create better opportunities, endorse higher education, and both candidates promise to lower the cost of education. Yet they still disagree and have minor differences when it comes to education. For example, Obama endorses federal help on students while Romney does not. Romney said in an interview that Obama spends too much money on projects that are unnecessary.

Chapters 1-8 of Gone by Michael Grant might leave a reader feeling intrigued, because everyone has disappeared except the young and two of the characters has a power. There is no technology/electronics working. Everything is “GONE”. An example of why is on page 55. “All the little background noises, all the little sounds you barely registered - phones ringing, car engines, voices - were gone. They could hear each footstep they made. Each breath they took.

I had just finished the book "Massive" by Julia Bell yesterday. I thought that this book wasn't all that great, almost annoying to be honest. It just goes on and on about this girl's mother refuses to be fat so she doesn't eat much or any food everyday. It starts out with the main character, Carmen, who is at first rebels her mother by sneaking in food in her room and eating candy and whatnot. The mother finds out and is disappointed and after this happens they go out to move to the mother's parents where Carmen's whole lifestyle changes.
I am writing about The Hunger Games again, this time the film. I think some may have seen this already(the link, not the movie). I ment to post it on Sunday, but instead am doing so now.
So The Hunger Games movie just came out a while ago, I haven't seen it yet, but I heard it's good. But some would disagree about the movie's quality; some might say that racism is no longer a big issue in the world today, that it doesn't occur much. However here... is a little something:
In the book “Pretty little bitch girl” By Jackie Collins, the girl name Carolyn is the mistress of Gregory, who is a senator and is married for 20 years with children and is being threaten by Carolyn to leave his wife before she tells everyone about them. Carolyn her self had a boyfriend when she was messing around with Gregory but he up and left her. Now she’s been lonely for the pass 2 months with only Gregory as her back up. Not only is she a home wrecker but was a cheater.
Reading further into After, by Amy Efaw, I noticed my predictions were right. She got sent to the juvenile center all because her mother didn't appear. I dislike the fact that happened because she wasn't suppose to go to a detention center without much info. But at the same time I feel like she deserves to due to giving birth to a child and leaving him in a dumpster. I wonder how Devon's life is going to be now that she is in place where she will be looked at 24/7.
So my predictions where some what right. Devon might come out of jail if the judge doesn't let her be seen as a guilty person. At this part of the story Devon is really happy but as her attorney starts mentioning all the charges Devon is charged with I got shocked myself. What I'm now understanding is that this isn't even Jail what shes going to go through is going to determine if she goes to jail.
The more I read this book I can feel whats Devon going through. She is being put in a place of dealing with charges of murder, abandonment, and so on. That's scary place to be in. I would most definitely hate to be put in that place. But yet I'm against everything she has done she has killed a baby. I wonder what was her reason to do that. And most of all I wonder why did it happen. What I don't understand about this book it starts out after Devon gave birth and they look for a person who left a baby in the trash.
Reading After by Amy Efaw, I can predict what’s going to happen next. Since there’s no presence of her mother, she’ll eventually end up going to a juvenile center. What makes me think this is because this happens in the world. Innocent people go to jail for no reason without a trial. This is new to the world. I think it’s just wrong. I feel like people do deserve their right to speak up no matter what age they are. As I read more she ended up being in jail. I think this is just so wrong.
I am enjoying this novel called Lord Loss, by Darren Shan because it is one of the few good horror novels in my school. An example of what I mean is on pages 22 and 23 where things got kind of crazy. Something that was really crazy happened on page 22, “ The dripping sound-- a body hanging upside down from the webby ceiling in the center of the room. No head. Blood drops to the floor from the gaping red O of the neck. Even without the head I recognize him. ‘DAD!’ I scream, and the cry almost rips my vocal chords apart.” Also page 23 says, “Beneath it, motionless-- Mom. Or what’s left of her.
I recently read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, a fiction trilogy set in the future in which ever year twenty-four people must be picked/volunteer(rare) to be a tribute, and participate in "the Games", where they will kill each other until only one is left standing. The Games were made in order to remind people in the districts of Panam(basically North America), that the government(The Capitol) has power over the people, and what happens when they revolt.
I read this book called Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Not since The Lion King have I been on such an emotional roller-coaster. It’s one of those books where the little things make it so real the characters become real people. I guess that’s what struck me about it first, those little character traits that couldn’t be (but were) made up. It’s told from the perspective of a little (older than 7 younger than 12) kid. He describes sadness as “heavy boots.” That more than anything made this little boy real.
For AP English, we just started reading Dead Man Walking, by Sister Helen Prejean. The book follows the story of a devout Catholic nun and her relationship with an inmate on death row in a county prison. The inmate, Patrick Sonnier, was convicted of raping and murdering a young couple (with his brother Eddie). I have only just started the novel, but the details in which it describes the execution process over the years is disturbing, yet intriguing. As for my prediction, I bet the nun and Patrick will become very close and the nun will plead that Patrick's life be spared.
