Nazi Germany

Our history teacher, Lenny, divided us into groups to do research and present a topic as regards Nazi Germany. I was assigned the economic aspect. Me and my group decided to make a glogster to show the class as a visual aid to accompany our exposure of the topic. Unfortunately, when we presented, there was a problem in which some information wasn’t saved to the glogster, but now it has been added.

After the presentations, Martin Leguizamon: a teacher at ORT and also the parent of one of my classmates, made a presentation in which he showed his trip through the “Marcha por la vida”. He also taught us the difference between  holocaust and shoah; and what was the final solution.

Then we visited the museum of the Holocaust. We saw; an interview made to some survivors; different people who took care of others during war, and what Martin told us was repeated.

6)Yes, the peom shows love towards Singapore. Chong wanted to make people love and have pride towards their country.

 

Today, 12th of August we analysed the poem in class. 

Sredni Vashtar

Element of instaibility: The element of instability is that Conradin has five more years until he dies. And without his imagination he would die before.

Conflict: The conflict is that Conradin lives with his cousin, who hates Conradin, and he hates her back. It’s a mutual feeling.

Climax or Point of no Return: The point of no return is when Conradin’s cousin sells the hen

Falling Action: The falling action is when Conradin prayed to Sredni Vashtar to kill his cousin.

Resolution: The resolution when Conradin’s cousin died.

Analysis guide

1- Analyze the setting. Focus on mood and atmosphere.

As they a shed and a big garden, we can perceive that they a farm. Therefore they lived in the outer of the city.

2-  Describe Conradin´s cousin.

She was the antagonist of the story. She was very controling and harsh with Conradin, and didn´t care about his happines.

3-Describe the role of religion.

The role of religion in the story is very important. Because the Shed reprents Conradin´s church, and the ferret represents Conradin´s god.

4- What is the uncanny of the story.

The uncanny of the story is that Conradin prayed to the ferret, and he thought the ferret actually killed his cousin.

Compare the story we read and the video. Make a brief comment about this.

The video gave a more sad and gloomy atmosphere than the story because the story doesn’t give you a lot of description of the setting and the mood. Also, the video shortens the period of time when the actions occur because in the story Conradin watches the window for a longer time. Finally, the video gives you a foreshadowing of what was going to happen rather than the story, because when the glass breaks in the shed, as the video shows you, later on, the cousin cuts herself with her own glasses.

Do you agree with the analysis?

Yes, we agree with this prezi, because it is similar to ours. For example: religion is a very important feature in the story.

-Can you mention other themes?

Other themes are madness; when Conradin thought that the ferret killed his cousin. And hiding your true feelings.

-Can you find quotations for the themes mentioned in the presentation and those you have added?

-“The boy would not live another five years”
-“Whoever will break it to the poor child?”
Hiding your true feelings:
-“Conradin hated her with a desperate sincerity which he was perfectly able to mask”
Man vs Nature:
-“Sredni Vashtar was personally responsible for the toothache”
Religion:
-“Sredni Vashtar, the great ferret”
Opression:
-“It is not good for him to be pottering down there in all weathers”
Revengeful:
-“Do one thing for me, Sredni Vashtar”

 

Tarea de geografía para las vacaciones

El profesor Pablo Peez nos asigno el siguiente trabajo para ser realizado antes del día 2 de agosto:

Actividad a realizar durante el período de vacaciones:

Contestar las actividades 2 y 5 de la página 91 del libro. Una vez realizadas, publicarlas en el blog personal. Fecha de entrega: martes 2 de agosto.

Ejercicio 2:

A- Este mapa informa sobre la distribución desigual del agua en el mundo; ya sea debido a motivos económicos o por escasez de agua en dicha región. El mapa ademas indica que el 15% del agua mundial se encuentra en la cuenca del río Amazonas.También comunica que el lago Ontario es la reserva que consta de una laguna o lago mas grandes del mundo.

B- Algunos aspectos de información brindados por el mapa se relacionan con el problema del acceso al agua en la población porque en las dos imágenes se demuestra que en la zonas desérticas hay escasez de agua. También demuestran que en las zonas mas pobres del mundo, hay escasez económica de agua, es decir que debido a la pobreza no pueden adquirir este recurso.

C- América posee el 40% del agua dulce del planeta, lo cual vuelve a América en un continente muy importante debido a que la puede exportar si es necesario. Ademas en America la escasez de agua es muy poca en relación con los demás continentes.

Ejercicio 5:

A- Las consecuencias de la privatización de los recursos hídricos son que al ser un bien comercial pueden ver disputas armadas por conseguir dicho recurso.

B- Los factores que convierten al agua en un recurso estratégico son; la explotación; el control y la administración de ella.

C- El agua genera conflictos internacionales por su uso, uno de ellos actualmente es en las fronteras norte y sur de Estados Unidos con Canadá y Mexico debido al uso de las cuencas compartidas. También existe un conflicto entre las provincias de Mendoza y La Pampa por el uso excesivo del rió Atuel por parte de La Pampa.
