We read «The Way Up To Heaven» in Pilar Pando’s class.
Denotation: It´s the dictionary meaning of a word.
Example: If you look for the word “gloomy in the Dictionary, it appears: dark or dismal
Connotation: The synonym of a word.
Example: And once again, the autumn leaves were falling.This phrase uses ‘autumn’ to signify something coming to an end.
Mood: The reader´s feelings about something of the content of the text. Example: In Erich Segal’s Love Story, the relationship of the two protagonists is handled with such beauty, delicateness and sensitivity that the reader is compelled to feel the trials and tribulations of the characters.
Rising action: Is the action that makes the conflict the most important thing.
Climax: It´s the most insensitive, suspense and interesting part of a story. Example: In Romeo and Juliet the climax is when Romeo challenges Tybalt to a duel after he killed Mercutio.
Falling action: It´s the part of the story when the resolution of the conflict appears.
Conflict: The conflict can be the external or internal. The internal conflict is when the protagonist has a problem with himself. The external conflict is when a character has a problem with something or someone.
Example: John tried hard to convince himself that his Hollywood dreams were worth the struggle but his parents, and his inner voice of reason, failed to agree.
Suspense: When the reader wants to know more information and leaves him with suspense.
Example: A cliffhanger is a great way to create s Duspense. You remember when you were a kid and very excited to watch those Saturday morning shows. You can probably recall the feeling you had at the pit of your stomach when, after about 25 minutes and lots of commercials, you were hoping to find out what happened to your favorite character. However, you didn’t get to find out. Instead they would make the “Tune In Next Week” announcement and you already knew that you would be there. Same time, same place. Suspense is a powerful literary tool because, if done correctly, you know your audience will be back for more and more.
Setting: Where the story takes place and time. Example: The setting of Macbeth is in Scotland in the beginning of the 17th century
Oxymoron: is a figure of speech in which two opposite ideas are joined to create an effect.
Example: Original copy
Personification: When an object, animal or something of nature has human qualities.
Example: The flowers danced in the gentle breeze
We were talking with our oral teacher, Pilar Pando, of our following oral presentations. She gave us some tips so us to improve them. Here are the pictures of what we have to do.
We where talking about Benjamin Zephaniah, an awsome poet. We read a poem that he wrote called «According to my mood». This poem is very special because we thing that he wrote it for a reason. In my opinion he wrote this because he is saying something whit grammar mistakes but he is right. Maybe he can be poor, black, and dyslexic but there is no reason to judge him because he can not change his personality or appearence. He has the liberty to write whatever he wants. Here is the poem:
According To My Mood

We are now about to plunge into one of the main topics of this year:
THE FIRST WORLD WAR.
No historical event is the result of only ONE cause, that is why we shall be considering the main causes.
In this post we will collect different types of material related to the causes of WW1.
We shall start by watching a Kahn Academy video on the Empires before WW1.
Empires before World War I: Austria-Hungary. Ottoman empire. British, German, French and Russian empires
Watch the video and analyse the following points:
1. What were the Empires at the end of the 19th Century?
NEW QUESTION: When were each of these empires BORN?
The Russian empire was born in 1721, the German Empire in 1871, the Austro Hungarian Empire in 1867 and the British Empire in 1583.
2. Which was the most powerful?
The British Empire because it had lots of colonies conquered.
3. Which were the weakest Empires? Why?
The Russian and the Austro-Hungarian Empires because they weren’t very powerful and they didn’t conquered so many colonies.
En este blog, se van a encontrar con materias, y entradas sobre ellas. Nuestros profesores nos hicieron esta página como herramienta de estudio. Cada alumno diseña su blog como quiere, pero necesita cierta información que les piden los profesores, trabajos, tareas, etc. Las materias están divididas por categorías, las de castellano por un lado, y las de inglés por otro. La idea seria ir personalizando mi blog seguido.
Mi nombre es Lucía Frias. Estoy en Las Cumbres desde que tengo 3 años. Vivo con mis papas, Isabel y Máximo, mi hermana Mercedes que tiene 22 años y mi hermano Gonzalo, que tiene 19. Me encentaría terminar el colegio en Las Cumbres porque me gusta mucho y porque mis hermanos terminaron en este colegio también.
Estubimos leyendo un artÍculo de matemática escrito por La Nación. El título era ¿por qué aprender matemática?
La matemática no solo para el futuro ,sino para la vida. Esta materia nos sirve para varias cosas fundamentales, no solo por los objetos que se hacen por la matemática. Te enseña a razonar, justificar, pensar en que es lo importante de un problema y que no. Sin la matemática, nos complicaría aprender otras cosas, ya que esta, te ayuda a desarrollar el cerebro.
En mi opinión, la matemática no es algo opcional, sino que tendría que ser aplicada en todas las personas. Es importante poder razonar cosas y pensarlas más de una vez para poder llegar a un razonamiento. Siempre hay que aceptar los resultados aunque no nos gusten porque no existe un dobles en esta materia.
