I’ve wrote a description of my name. Throughout this round we did so many such as writing poem, writing about the meaning of our name. Also this past few weeks we did read a novel book. Our facilitator has four book for us to choose. They are Wonder, Looking for Alaska, Monster and Outsider. I decide to choose to read about Looking For Alaska book. This book i a little bit more mature, however we still get through it. Furthermore, we also a discussion every week with the team. In a team we have different role to share from the story which are, Summarizer, Visualizer, Inferencer, Symbolizer and Word Detectives. I think this round is great round because it had taught me a lot and I got to know more about my Identity. Furthermore, it help to me to build more of passion on reading as I was a person that doesn’t like to read.

English Literacy/ Round 2

In literacy class, there will be a different theme for each round. For this round, the theme was about “ Social and Environmental Injustice”. Basically, the environmental injustice is related to the unfair treatment of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. Throughout the lesson, we have done a lot of exercises such as complete the hyperdoc about the minority group map and philosophical chair which is when the statement was given and we need to decide on agree or disagree. Then we will start to debate on that topic respectfully. One more thing that is the bigger accomplishment is every student had written their own argumentive essay.  Throughout that writing, I also learned about how to choose a great topic, how to write a thesis statement and how to cite the evidence and source. I think it’s a great round which all the students get to practice their own writing skills.

English Literacy

In English literacy class, we mainly focus on learning roots. We focus on only two type of root words which are Latin and Greek. Every week our facilitator will give us one of the homework packages. In that homework packages, we have ten new vocabularies and it will show its roots and where is it come from ( Latin or Greek) and what is it mean. For example, memoir, memorialize, memorable and its roots word is mem, it comes from Latin and it’s mean mindful or recalls. In that homework package there also some exercise for us to on which help to understand more about the words and help us to remember it. Every Monday we will have a little quiz about the vocabulary. I think it helps me a lot to learn new vocabulary and also help me to know where all those words came so it can help me to be a better english learner. Sometime when I see a new word I might know what it means by just look at the roots words.
