Things we are doing in LA:

Essays: In LA we are doing Essays and Devon and I did this Essay together and here is a copy (by the way we got an A).


On January 12th 2010, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti. The quake that struck measured 7.0 on the Richter scale. It took down many homes and businesses throughout the city. It was the strongest earthquake they had ever had in more than a century. Unfortunately, eight days after the devastating 7.0 earthquake, an aftershock hit on January 20th measuring with a 6.1 impact. Many people were trapped under the rubble. During the search and rescue, some people were found alive. However, many more were discovered dead. Even more are still undiscovered.
One agency reported an estimated 20,000 people are dying every day that could be saved by having surgery. Organizations estimate that 200,000 people have died so far. Many places and things had been ruined leaving most people homeless and jobless. Stores and houses had been broken down and all that was left were bits and pieces. Also, since houses were destroyed, people were forced to live on the streets. The people in Haiti were left with cuts, scars, bruises, broken bones, concussions, and even in some cases, fingerless or worse. If many people don’t die of their injuries, they would soon die of hunger, thirst or sickness.
Haitihas a strong but depressing history. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the World. Since they had that shocking earthquake, Haiti is even worse. About 80% of the people were already poor but now about a little under 100% are desperate and helpless. “Hundreds and thousands of people are still in need of food and water” a United Nations spokesperson said, “Only about 50,000 have gotten food in the last 16 days and about 2 million more people need food”. Haiti is a very unstable place, economically and politically. Before the earthquake people were reaching out to help Haiti, but after, they are trying to help the people even more. Their history is failing to succeed, and it will probably not get better any time soon.
Haiti barely has anything anymore. On every street, survivors have lost everything they had including homes, parents, children, and friends. Millions have been waiting in line for food, water, and for health care since the earthquake, and many haven’t received any help yet. They hardly have anything to support them, and they can barely even support themselves.
Haiti needs all the help they can get and even more. You can give donations such as clothing, food, money, and other items to help. They are very poor and have nothing, but we do. We may be able to stop the hunger and thirst there just by donating. They are many charities supporting Haiti. Find out how you could help their people. They would all appreciate it very much



Book Club:
Now we are doing gender book club. In my book club we are reading Twelve by Lauren Myracle. My Book Club group is Yasmine, Devon, Rachel and I and we are the Raging Readers. We are almost done with the book and so far it is really good, now we are working on our presentation.

Twelve Summary:
Winnie Perry went through a lot when she was eleven, from shifting friendships to her teenage sister's mood swings. But now that Winnie is twelve-and one step closer to being a teenager herself-there is so much more to deal with. Will her new friendship with Dinah Last? Can she handle the pressures of junior high? And, most important, will Winnie survive bra shopping (in public!) with Mom? (summary from back of the book)

Book Club Reflection:

Our gender book club has been an excellent experience. Having the two genders separated and letting us chose our book/group made you feel more comfortable in your group, you wouldn’t have to be stuck with a person you really don’t get along with and it might be really hard for you to work in that group or with that person. I really like book club because you where able to speak your mind about the book with just your gender, when you have a mixture of genders you might be embarrassed to speak your mind in front of girls/boys. It was more open and wasnt so... weird feeling to talk about something you wouldn't really talk about in front of girls/boys. If I ever have a chance to do book club again I would surely do it, hands down.


Fictional story:

In LA we are creating a fictional story(with a growing up theme)

“Lisa get dressed it’s time for your slumber party,” my [[#|mom]] said, while finishing up the snacks. “Your guest should arrive in abooout… 10 more minutes”.

“K”, I said while running down the stairs barely making it without falling.

Reacting to the sound of the doorbell. I heard my mom’s footsteps on the way from the kitchen to the front door and that’s when I yelled, “I’ll get it”.


I opened the front door and was shocked with who I saw.

“HALEY!” I yelled “IS THAT REALLY YOU!”


“NOO… IT’S NOT REALLY ME! “She said sarcastically. “OMG I haven’t seen you since we were like in 3rd grade”.

“I KNOOOOW” she replied, leaning toward me trying to hug me.

“LISA WHO’S AT THE DOOR”! My mom yelled from the kitchen.

“HALEY MOOOM!”

“Hello Mrs. Rogers,” Haley said in a bold voice.

“Hello Haley how are you today” mom said.

“Good” Haley replied in an innocent sounding voice.

“That’s good, you girls have fun ok, but not too much fun.

O
yeah and Lisa I’ll be down here if you need me, OK.

“O-K MOM CAN WE GO NOW” I said pressing the button to the elevator. “C’mon Haley, CHOP CHOP, HURRY UP SLOW POKE.”

Ok, Ok I’m coming don’t rush me, GOODNESS”!

“Whoa, Whoa, Whoa slow, down you guys,” my maid, Lauren said. “You guys have four nights to do what ever your rushing to do.”

“DING DOOOONG”! The doorbell sounded.

“Ms. Rogers you have guests down stairs,” my butler Jimmy, said and they said there names are Izze, Lacey, Natasha and Sunny, is it ok if I let them in”?

“Of course tell them to take the elevator to the second floor please.”


“I sure will, is that all Ms. Rogers?”

“Um for now thanks… for nothing” I whispered, once he left my room.

“O… my… God he is so annoying” I said, with a chuckle.

“KNOCK KNOOOCK”! Izze said in a sing-song voice.

“Hey hey hey HEY”! I said excited to see them “AREEEE YOOOUU READDY TOOOO…. RUUUUMBBLE”!

“Of course, but didn’t you invited twenty girls and there’s only… six of us” Sunny said, unsure.

Finally after all the guests arrived we headed to the spa room and got a full-fledge spa treatment.
(manicure, pedicure, massage, mud bath etc.)

“O… My … GOD, I totally needed that massage and that guy in there is really HOT”! Izze said, still staring at him “Like what’s his name


J to the A to the S to the O to the N…. JASON! I replied in a rap-sounding tune.

O really, that’s like a really hot name, for a really hot boy, how old is he?”


“18” I replied.

O, my God, really, I should totally go out with him”. Don’t you think?”

“UUUHH NO”! Lacey replied.

“Why not?” Izze said, in a stern voice, “Because you’re like only….. 15”

SO, it’s only by three year
s.

I got a couple points off for not having eye contact with the adience and for to being to short (1min. 30sec). An example of an Exploration: A summary of the book. A example of a Response: Researching the Author.
