Rejecting Dollhood

 This is my second project for the class called Drama. In our second unit called Doll, we talked about what dolls are, how they're portrayed in fiction, and in real life. We also read A Doll's House where we read about Nora and her experiences in a world of doll's. Dolls themselves could be women who are possessed by someone, treated some way by specific people, and many other different reasons. In the play, we were able to see Nora struggle with these norms put onto her which ended with her wanting to leave them for something better. We also went to go see The Tragedy of Christophe which talked about racism, slavery, and many other topics that we still deal with in our lives. We also had a talk back with the actors and got to learn about what they enjoyed most throughout making the play. For this action project we were assigned to create a small play that was supposed to be a continuation after A Doll's House. My play's title is Rejecting Dollhood  and it talks a

Shin Splints and how to treat them

  Treating Shin Splints " new frisbee wrap "  by  Phil Denton  is marked with  CC BY-SA 2.0 . This is my second action project for my class, Cure. Throughout this unit titled Treatment , we’ve been learning about how different treatments work inside of the body. Some of those medications are analgesics, antibiotics, and laxatives. We also learned about the differences between substances, drugs, and medications and why people might take them at one point or the other. We also did an experiment with different antibiotics to see which ones might be the best to fight germs. After the experiment, we went over conic sections and even went to MSI for a heart diagnostic lab. Leading to our action project, we are supposed to research a symptom that might happen in the body and figure out what types of treatments would be best to cure that symptom. I decided to do shin splints as my symptom and wanted to present it through a slideshow. Here’s a link to my slideshow below:   Overall

Arts and Crafting Quitapenas

Arts and Crafting Quitapenas This is my action project for my Spanish class. In the last few weeks, we’ve been learning about how to use the Spanish preterit, present tense, and describing people in different ways using the pretirct. We also learned about how to describe different stores and characteristics of different people. With this action project the goal was to create a quitapena doll using arts and crafts materials. After creating the doll we had to describe the doll’s characteristics and other things about it. What I found most challenging about this project was creating the actual doll itself. My sample drawing came out completely different than what I actually created so that was a huge change. Even though it took a lot of time, I'm most proud of how I was able to make it turn out pretty well.  Here's my concept drawing: RBL,Quitapena concept drawing, 2022 Here’s my completed Quitapena below: RBL,Quitapena doll, 2022 La muñeca Quitapena lleva pantalones verdes, cami

  Relationship Review - Othello and Iago   This is my first blog post for my Healthy Relationships in Shakespeare class. In this class, we’ve been learning about different character relationships in Shakespeare plays. Throughout this unit we did this by reading the play Othello . In the play there are many different relationships between lovers, acquaintances, and frenemies. As the play goes on, we get to see how these relationships clash with each other leading to tragedy. The purpose of this action project is to find the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships in Othello . In this blog, I’ll be looking into the relationship between Othello and Iago. I’ll also be looking at how that affects the rest of the play. " 2 hearts in love " by Leonard J Matthews is marked with CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 . Now, before I summarize Othello, let’s understand some factors for a healthy relationship.  Communication - In a relationship, talking to one another about personal concerns

Macduff's Nest in Ashes

This is my first Action Project for the class called Drama. In this first unit called Queen, we talked about queens in our lives and queens in Shakespearean plays. We started by giving our own examples of queens. We saw some of our own as strong, kind hearted, and compassionate towards others or their fans. We read The Tragedie of Macbeth in class to further understand the meaning behind a queen. It gave me a completely new twist on the definition of a queen because it talked about being power hungry, greedy, and tratorious intentions. In Macbeth, men were easily manipulated and sometimes women stepped up to lead the couple. These traits were shown better when we eventually watched the movie based on the book. This was the version that came out this year that starred Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand. Leading to our action project we were assigned to write a sonnet to a Macbeth character of our choice. I decided to write my poem to Macduff because he’s a character that’s very acc

It’s Not All Handy Dandy - by RBL

  It’s Not All Handy Dandy This is my first action project for my Cure class. This class is a second part to our Disease class last term. In this unit, titled Emergency, we’ve been learning about what can go wrong in the body and how to fix it. We first looked at the Hippocratic oath that doctors take, so we could see the rules that they follow. We also went to the International Museum for Surgical Science to see how different surgeries are done and why. As well as learning how different cells can reproduce through meiosis and mitosis. Leading up to our action project being to look up a surgery of our own choice and create a pamphlet about it that patients might see before getting that surgery. I decided to research Carpal Tunnel syndrome for my action project. In the cells, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a stop in fluid production in the cells because of repeated use of the same action. From there these cells might cause friction in the system leading to the hand slowing down. can c
