NotN Reflection 2016

So… eminent is over. Woah.     When this project started, I was extremely confused, stressed and worried about everything: my speech, research, learning center and how I would choose my person. To be honest, everything sort of just happened and it was all over in what seemed like the blink of an eye. I actually really enjoyed this project! Now that it’s over, I feel both happy and sad; I..

DoL: Eminent Speech

I decided to post my final speech draft on here, because I didn’t go too in-depth with my library post; I feel like I should post one more document of learning before my final reflection post. So here it is, my speech on Audrey Hepburn – told from the point of view of her son Sean Hepburn Ferrer.   Audrey Hepburn The world saw my mother as a star. They saw.. Read More

Eminent Interview

So, Night of the Notables is only a few days away.. ahhh Sadly, I have been unsuccessful with my interview(s), but this experience has taught me a few things and will help me be more successful next time.

VPL Adventures

  Hi everyone! As you all know, some of us went to the Vancouver Public Library/Macleod’s Bookstore to find books for Eminent.

An EmOtIoNaL rOlLeR cOaStEr

I’ve created this world in my mind where all imperfections are perfect. It’s based off of fairy tales, which have been the foundation of my identity for a number of years now. Almost the entire span of my existence has been spent escaping reality—living in a fantasy—so much that I wonder if I have become one. I often find myself scared to venture beyond the safe walls of my imagination, the dangerous lands of reality far.. Read More

The Depths of My Knowledge in Social Studies

Main Focus: Where are you (with respect to social studies)? In middle school, we did a fair bit of Social Studies but I didn’t really get the chance to dig deep into the different topics and study areas that I am particular passionate about. My interest in Socials started at the beginning of middle school, because in elementary school all we ever learned about was first nations—every single year. This.. Read More
