What Makes a Hero? Hello, this is RBL and welcome to my third and final action project for my class called Stories. In this unit, we learned about the theories of the hero’s journey and how different characters change throughout different stories. If you don't already know, the hero's journey is a theory made by Joseph Campbell. It is a theory based on the idea that most known heroes in common literature go through. Connected to that, we also talked about the different ways the hero's journey can be different from one another. We also got to talk about different plots for a hero's journey as well. For example, one of our field experiences was watching the movie, "The Matrix" to get a better look at the hero's journey in a really popular movie. We also got to go to Armani's Howard's art studio to see how he encapsulates the hero's journey in his art. This all led up to our action. In this action project, I'm going to take a fictional hero an

  A trip to Guatemala hello this is RBL and welcome to this blog post. This action project was for my spanish class where we were supposed to create a travel pamphlet. For the pamphlet we all got to choose a different country to learn about their foods, activites, and things you can do in the country. We also had to show different places you could stay or see in the country as well. I chose Guatemala as my country to research for the project.

  The Puerto Rican crested toad  Hello and this is RBL, in this blog I will be looking at the interesting timeline and outline of the Puerto Rican crested toad.  I chose this species because I’ve always liked how they look. I also think that they look very unique in lumps on their skin as well.

CRT in Public Schools - By RBL

 CRT in Public schools hello this is RBL here with another blog post. This blog will be based around a video that I've created. It's based around the topic of CRT (critical race theory) that we've been talking about in my class the war on X. I will also post my script under the video if needed. Without further to do, here's my video and I hope you enjoy it. Video Script: Critical Race in Theory (CRT) in public schooling  Over the past 2 weeks in my class War on X, we’ve been studying different aspects of CRT.

Fable Making - By RBL

Fable Making- By RBL Hello this is RBL and in this blog I will be sharing a fable to you all. Before I do so I made this fable based off a class I'm taking called stories. Fables are shorter stories that usually have animals as the main characters in them that all have a shared lesson. Fables are also important to a lot of cultures and organizations like the national association of black storytellers (N.A.B.S). There important to them because they might show a lesson or moral that the culture might see as important to them fables give the culture something to live off of. If you don't know what a moral is, a moral is a lesson of a story or something a fable is trying to convey. We also had to learn about   anthropomorphism, which means to give different animals human like characteristics. We also had my mother Emily Lansana come into our classroom and share some of her stories to us. My Mom is a professional storyteller an has been telling stories to people for many years.  Thi
