Career choice

In class our teacher asked us what we wanted to be when we grow up; I want to be a marine biologist. I want to be a marine biologist because I think marine life is really cool and Ive always wanted to help rescue and release animals, it just sounds really cool.

Fake news and War of the worlds

In class we read a play based off of the science fiction book War of the Worlds we also read an article about fake or unreliable news. Both of the passages talk about people believing things that are not true. In war of the Worlds when people would tune into the radio show late they would not hear the announcement that the story was not real and would think the Earth was being attacked by aliens. In the article about fake news it talked about people believing fake stories on the Internet and using them in reports.

Theme of the tempest

After watching The Tempest I can safely say that one of it's themes is to forgive others.  I think this because the whole play was about Prosparo's revenge but in the end he forgave his brother.

Thoughts on Tempest

We read some of the Tempest in class today and I think it will be interesting. It was a little hard to read, but I understood most of it. I think it's weird that they just add random extra words in sentences.

Final draft of argument

Hockey, Should you Play It       Have you ever gotten injured in a sport? Many people have, but did you know that ice hockey can cause very serious and sometimes even life altering injuries? Because of these injuries I think hockey is a dangerous sport and people should not play it.      One of the reasons I think people shouldn't play hockey is because you can get injuries to your spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries happen when the damage to the spinal cord blocks communications between your brain and body. After a person gets a spinal cord injury, the messages the brain sends to your muscles may not be able to get past the damage, so you wouldn't be able to do certain things like move a leg or talk correctly. These symptom will stay until your spinal cord completely heals which normally takes around six months to a year depending on the person. Sometimes the spinal cord does not heal and you can be paralyzed for life.  It’s obvious that hockey is dangerous is be…
