In our language class, our teacher Marcela divided us in several groups and told us to do a presentation to explain the vocabulary of different topics in order to improve our English. I had to prepare a presentation about degree and intensity and I did mine with María Roggero and Vignesh Manwani. This is it. At the end of it we prepeared an activity in case you would like to improve your English too!
Hope you like it.
I will start my e-portfolio by presenting an activity I prepeared for the story we read in our literature class called “The Hollow of the Three Hills”, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. I made a trailer about this story as if a movie about it was going to be launched. I hope you like it!
I prepared this trailer with the previous black and white pictures in order to portray how dramatic and gothic the story is. I chose those pictures to prove where it was set, in a hidden hollow between crumbling mountains . To be able to portray that atmosphere of of secrets, horror and misery, I chose a picture to expose the fact that the environment is far from society, dark, at twilight. I also selected several pictures of a woman in order to describe the protagonist’s isolation. Moreover, the picture of the witch is used to state the supernatural event in the story. Furthermore, I chose a picture of her possessing the young lady in order to express the unexplained manifestation that in the story takes place. Finally I decided to include pictures of a couple in order to show the protagonist’s previous life, where she had a husband and a son, with the intention of describe it before something terrible happen!
In our literature class, we started reading a poem called “rooms”, written by Charlotte Mew. After reading it, we had to do an activity that consists in two parts. In the first part, we had to answer some questions about the previous poem, while in the second activity, we had to read a poem called “Home is So Sad” and contrast it to “Rooms” in terms of style, language and form.
I did it with Silvestre Braun
This year we are starting our preparation for the AS exams. So Pato, our literature teacher, decided to collect information about the authors who wrote the short stories. She divided us into several groups and assigned us two authors for each. We were suppose to investigate their biography so as to learn about their lives, to understand the movement which they belonged to, and their main themes when writing. Here is the presentation which includes all the writers. Enjoy it!
In our language class, our teacher told us to draw three events that had taken place in the chapters we read from the book called “I’m Malala”. I did this with Vignesh Anil Manwani
1st Drawing: We drew a women school which has been bombed by the Taliban because it violates the law, as women weren’t allowed to go to school
2nd Drawing: We also drew the first time Malala sees the Taliban. She is very afraid because of their strange look and because of the specific clothing they wear
Third Drawing: The las drawing we did was Shabana’s death. Shabana was a dancer who has been killed at her house by the Taliban, when she was about to dance for them when they knocked at her door.
