What will be easy?

The making of the tiny accessories that are on the chair like the ribbons, shooting stars, and some of the small bits and pieces will probably be somewhat easy since it only requires manipulating fabric, beads, or cardboard. No sewing or extreme cutting would be required, and only quick drying glue would be involved. The shattered glass may also be easier compared to the other parts since it doesn’t require any sculpting to create the effect.

What will be challenging?

The cardboard parts would likely be one of the hardest parts of the chair due to the fact that the material would have to be cut in a formation that has many sharp curves like dripping chocolate. I think that I may need a MAX sharp knife to make the cardboard look neat. I might also have to consider how I would hide the holes that might be present on the side of the cardboard. Also, it might also be a little tedious to cut small shapes that go on top of the layer of cardboard.

Why do we use the design process and not just take our first idea?

This is because the first idea usually turns out to be a very literal design. It may consist of the main object in the middle of the chair as we were able to see when we drew 3 different chairs with 1 topic. It is also not convenient due to the fact that you should consider more than 1 idea so that you can see different types of images for your chair. This would help you to select the elements that you like from multiple chairs and combine them into 1 cohesive design.

What are you looking forward to about this task?

I would really like to learn more techniques on paper mache and being able to experience using other methods of sculpting. I have never worked with paper mache on something this large, so I think that new techniques like using wire for the skeleton of the shapes, making the final piece smooth, and others will be some that I have to be able to conduct.

What topic are you thinking of? Why?

I am thinking of the theme “dreamy” mixed with pastel colors due to the fact that pastel colors are visually pleasing and they go well with each other. I would definately have to add some pops of brighter colors so that the design would turn out more interesting than using colors with the same hues all throughout the design. I will also like to add colorful deatails like ribbons, flowers, and anything kawaii.

Progress Grade

Was that what you were expecting? Why?

The grade that I had gotten for the progress grade was a 76%. I was definitely expecting this grade or lower due to the fact that the only actions I took that added to my sculpture for all of the past classes were elements that would become the base of the chair. For example, laying down colours and cutting and covering cardboard to fill in the hole on the back of the chair. I did come in to speed up the pace that I was working at, but this resulted in decelerating even more due to the fact that I decided to use an even more extremely tedious technique to cover the cardboard that I had cut. I do not hold an animosity against the actions that I took, but I wish I took a quicker approach to it like using hot glue and paint to fill in the gaps of the cardboard.

What do you need to do to achieve an A?

At this pace, I will probably finish the entire sculpture by the time people consider laptops to be a vintage object of the past, so the obvious answer will be to work on my chair not only after school, but also at lunch because I do not plan to cut many parts out of my chair in the near future.... To accelerate the completion of the different elements of the chair, I may have to substitute some parts with store-bought objects. The replacements that I have in mind are the boxes with actual boxes or the back ribbon design with actual ribbons.


This tutorial explains how to make a relief tree out of newspaper, and I plan to use this technique to resemble a rolled candy shape for the lolly candy portion of my sculpture. Due to the fact that this technique will be used to mimic the round curves of a lolly candy, I think that I will need to scrunch together more paper than in the video so that the newspaper doesn’t lay in an uneven formation as well as use more layers of the paper mache strips.



  1. Looking at what you have achieved over the last 10 weeks, describe how you feel about the chair now and what you have really achieved. (imagine being back at that starting point)

After 10 weeks of constructing my chair, it only looks 1/4 finished with each of the indivisual elements looking to only be half finished. I have mostly finished the larger pieces of sculpture concerning the top back portion of the chair, but almost nothing has been even started for the seat of the chair or the bottom half of the chair. The plaster on both the lolly candy and the cat tail is both bumpy and hard to paint on, so I tried to solve the problem by painting on thick layers of gesso. Although this smoothed out the cracks and the holes that were present in the plastered pieces, I still had some difficulty getting a smooth coat of purple paint on the cat's tail. On the opposite side of the constructing, cardboard served as a basis for some of the sculpture pieces such as the ice cream, rainbow, and the drippy pieces. At the start, I was afraid of using plaster, so I tried to put off the plaster pieces for last and focused on cutting many, many pieces of cardboard again and again for every single class, and that definitely slowed down my process on making my chair. However, when the rubric came stating that I needed more larger pieces done, I tried to create objects out of plaster, and I felt that it was easier and more efficient on making the pieces out of plaster.

  1. Explain the elements that are applied (you may need to look at your poster again don’t forget movement is one too) to your chair so far. If you were to choose ONE to be the most important what would it be? Is there one much more dominant than the others?

One of the elements that are present on my chair is the element of line. Line is represented by the cat tail on the back of the chair because it is able to lead the eye into spiraling into the swirl in it. Another would be positive and negative space created by the back striped "ribbons". The actual "ribbon" is the negative space since it takes up space and the shapes that are not filled in with the ribbon is the negative space. Color would be the most important element due to the fact that this is able to represent emotion and give life to anything. Also, my chair requires using many colors in every portion of the chair, so without it it would look very unfinished or boring without it. For example, the rainbow has to have multiple colors, or it wouldn't qualify as a rainbow let alone look like one. The drippy backing on the back seat of the chair also requires multiple colors to complete because 1 solid color wouldn't look very appealing. In conclusion, color is a very prominent feature in sculpture.

  1. From the research, preparation and the debates themselves, what did you learn about the art of persuasion? Please explain.

I learned that we needed to find actual information that would support our argument rather than random information that related to the rocket. In the past, we were able to get a whole document full of sources on the databases and we could pick out random information that we saw on that one document, and alter the appearance of it to persuade the audience by explaining the evidence in the analysis. However, now we have to look at multiple sources, and even ones that are a little off topic, and carefully select the evidence so that they are able to contribute to the thesis with little or no explanation. I think that if I were to do this again, I would try and look for sources on the internet rather than being limited to the databases.

  1. How do you establish credibility as a debater? Explain fully.

I think that I wasn’t able to create a background with highly credible sources in the written form. This is due to the fact that I based off the supporting evidence upon the evidence itself, and I tried to cut off any other unnecessary information that would not directly contribute to the thesis. However, I was completely wrong on this assumption, and I only realized it right before the debate, so I tried to add some extra information to the sources that I listed in various places in the supporting evidence. I also tried to use the complicated words provided by the thesaurus, but that was minimal so it probably did not establish a sense of credibility either unless used to the MAX.

  1. What surprised you the most about your debate and/or the debate experience?

I would say that the most surprising thing about the debate was the energy that came from other students being able to respond back to their opponents in such a quick fashion. This would lead to challenge the other team’s debate positions to make themselves seem more persuasive. I was also surprised at the creativity of persuasion one team presented by using action-based examples which seemed to make their evidence clearer. I was also quite shocked that it seemed to be that some of the teams that won the debate were teams that had the more favorable inventions rather than the most persuasive information.

  1. What were you most proud of in your own debate?

I’m not sure about the specific things that I am proud of that occurred in the time frame of the debate in our team, however, I am definitely proud of the comments that I have given to the other people in their debates. I think that those comments were able to provide specific information that they did well on as well as some places they could improve on. For example, in one of the comments, I said “I especially liked how you were able to capture the Plane’s team’s attention to the point that they had to be harming your invention instead of just making their arguments sound better. ”. This was probably able to capture the team’s ability to push their evidence in order for it to lead the other teams to their limits. Therefore, I was able to include information that directly benefited the presenter in the debate.

  1. What would be your next steps? Or in other words, what would you have done differently?

There are an infinite amount of things that I would do differently, but one of the most important things that I would do would be to look at the overview of the debate a little closer. This is due to the fact that my debate seemed to be very un-structured because most of the information that I presented in the opening was from the supporting evidence and counter claims rather than the actual opening, and the rebuttal consisted of presenting pre-written counterclaims that wasn’t able to make the other team correctly respond to the argument. Also, I would try to look at the audience more to be able to sound more persuasive as well as not look down at the screen as often.

[6. Additional Comments, Questions, Observations or Suggestions.]

  • Perhaps tell the audience to consider the debate with fresh minds and to not consider past information that they have gathered to make the winning position unbiased as possible???

Our Planning:

Self Assesment:

Peer Assesment:


For the past few weeks in the class of language arts, we have been focusing on constructing an informational paper on a topic of choice. My topic of choice was the antibiotic resistance, and it was nice to be able to revisit a topic that I only shallowly searched in 5th grade. First, we did the research and based upon sources that we found on the internet(only a few of us built up the courage to go look for them in books). Then, we assembled note cards along with a works cited page to help with evidence in writing our essay.

What was the biggest success???

The sucesses were probably not unfocused on the spelling. With the addition of spell check loaded onto google drive(which is not a direct competitor to blogs) , it is compleatly obvious that spelling will not come as a problem. However, I (do not have dylexia) have a hard time figuring out the spelling of vocabulary due to the fact that spelling is hard in english, compared to the easy spelling of other countries where spelling is compleatly dependant on the sound of the word and there are no vowels and 1 word can be identified with 1 type of pronunciation. This essay, I felt like I was able to eliminate some of my most common spelling errors like "problem" where I used to spell it like "probelom".

What was your biggest difficulty???

Any student who I talked to had a 99.99% chance of saying that they had most difficulty on the conclusion, and I did too. I do not mind writing the thesis of the conclusion, as it is the easiest part of the boulder before the finish line, but I had some difficulty with the "food for thought" or the ending of the conclusion. I felt like I had to meet the noble family, and with in the family, the ending of the conclusion was the Queen of England. I tried to take the steriotypical approach of "new antibiotics will be created" or "it will inspire other people" since they seemed to be my only choices for the most cliché conclusion ever. I tried to look at past examples of writing, however they seemed to imply that those were even more cliché than the ones that I had ever came up with for the antibiotic resistance essay, especially the last one that I wrote in 5th grade. Lastly, after many examinations of other people's essays, I settled for the negative conclusion of "Antibiotics can not help, bacteria will kill everyone" in the most cliché arangement of words that I had ever seen in my life.

What would you have done differently???

I say that I absolutely hate my sentence structure and my vocabulary because they are simply un-understandable. For example, commas are one of my best friends, therefore, I use them quite often. From the evidence above, we are able to conclude that my sentences will become as educationally disguised run on sentences that have to be deconstructed under a microscope and a probe due to their lack in logic. I also had some difficulty understanding them sometimes due to the fact that each word seemed to correspond with another word that was halfway on the other side of the globe, and there was also opposite formatting which I forgot that I did, which meant that I needed to break up the sentences, and would lead to troble. (see???) Also, my specific vocabulary was limited to antibiotic, antibiotics, bacteria, bacterial infections, and other ones that only came up less than once in my essay. If I were ti repeat this project on informative writing about antibiotics for the 3rd time, I think that i would try to use better sentence structure and vocabulary.

This is our third ecodome and here is how they survived:

  • Our first grasshopper has been dead since day 22, by drowning in the green pond of water
    • This may be due to the lack of rocks, since we put in the exact same amount of rocks as our past ecodome, which kept crickets in captivity instead of grasshoppers
    • We will put in more rocks in the water bottle if we have one next time
  • Our second grasshopper died today, 12 days after we put them in, and it's corpse has been found on under the plastic pond of water.
    • This is a great improvement since the last ecodome, since the crickets were only able to survive for 3 days last time before it turned extint in our container.
    • We will be using grasshoppers for our next ecodome since that will let us be able to get a longer lifespan for our next ecodome
  • The water has turned compleatly opaque into an army green color. There is a yellowish brown grasshopper floating in the water as it has become it's death bed.
    • This is probably due to the fact that some kind of alge or bacteria had duplicated to the limits, this may be because it had the perfect conditions of heat and moisture in the water of the ecodome
    • We didn't put in any flowers and the rocks were washed this time, so I am not sure about what exactly caused this output. Perhaps this was caused by external sources of bacteria that came with the grasshoppers?
  • The plant (located right next to the series of plants with thick stems, or the plant next to the white rocks) that used to be about the height of the container has grown exponentially. It has grown to the point that the leaves of the plant is a little smushed by the lid of the container. The stems are also a little bit crippled as it can not extend beyond the lid of the container
    • We will definately use this type of plant for our next ecodome, since the grasshoppers will be able to eat it if the amount of food we provide for them isn't enough. It also helps that it grows very, very quicky so it will not be likely that it will run out anytime soon.
  • The rocks that were once white are now a creamy white color.
    • This is probably becuase of dust created in the ecodome itself or soil that had been spread around by the grasshoppers strolling around.
    • We will probably try to cover all of the surface of the soil with rocks and grass since that will be able to prevent the rocks becoming darker than their original color
  • The series of plants with the thick stem's leaves on the side of the ecodome that is able to get sunshine has withered
    • This may be caused by excess sunshine or perhaps it was lacking water since we only watered in the most common places and not much water on places where it was hard to reach.
    • We will not include this plant in our final ecodome, and the only plant in our ecodome will be out fast-growing plant that we mentioned earlier. This may cut out the biodiversity of the plants, however this is fine since we will also include grass in certain places the rocks are not able to cover up

On the next design of out ecodome, we will definitely add the fast-growing plant due to the fact that it will provide food for our 2 grasshoppers. We will also add a small container that is the same exact size as out last one, but 50% of the container being filled with rocks this time. We will also put the container in a place where there is no direct sunlight so that it minimizes the chances of the ecodome reaching a high temperature which would lead to bacteria multiplying quickly. Lastly, we will cover the surface of the visible soil with rocks and the soil around the fast-growing plants with some grass.


NEW Design Components:

  • Water in the plastic bottle container
    • This time, we did not include any flowers on the surface of the water.
    • We put in washed rocks so that they would be able to make the water more shallow so that the grasshoppers do not sink
  • Leaves
    • There is probably an abundance of food since we were afraid that the grasshoppers wouldn't have enough food since the crickets ate most of the food in the last ecodome.
    • The food is humanly engineered leaves that were altered for human consumption
  • 2 grasshoppers
    • This time, instead of testing some entirely new design elements, we tried to test if grasshoppers would live longer compared to crickets



This is our second ecodome, and it has survived like:

  • The crickets were only able to survive for 3 days
    • There was only 1 day worth of improvement compared to before, so perhaps we should consider not putting in crickets in our final project.
  • They ate about 85% of the food
    • This may be that there was almost the perfect amount of food for the crickets in the span of 3 days
    • Perhaps we should put in about 150% more food, and mist some water onto it since they might have died because of lack of food
  • The small plant next to the white rocks grew to the top of the container, about 4 times it's original height
    • This might be the perfect spot for plants to grow, since the rocks may block water from evaporating, so perhaps we might cover the soil next to the plants to stop water escaping
  • The water in the bottle turned slightly murky, into a greenish orange solution
    • Perhaps this was because of the rotting flowers in the water, and the rocks.
    • We will wash the rocks that would go into the water container next time so that they will not contaminate the water, and we will also not put in any flowers in the water since they may have introduced bacteria that may have multiplied to make the water tinted
  • Some of the outer leaves of the tall plants are turning yellow
    • This may be due to the fact that out lid is opaque, therefore sunlight can not pass through them
    • Perhaps the plants will be able to benefit from the container being turned sideways, since that would let more sunlight into the ecodome
      • It may also be able to release more oxygen into the container for the crickets to be able to survive longer
  • Some droplets of water has gathered on the surface of the container in a condensationed format
    • This is an improvement, since our last ecodome did't have any water droplets on the surface of our container.
    • We will put the exact some amount of water: enough to fill the small container and about 3 mL to water the plants.

Our next ecodome will consist of putting in 2 grasshoppers with new water, revived plants, and 150% more food, due to the fact that we would like to test whether if grasshoppers survive longer in  same environment compared to crickets.


Wikipedia - Grasshoppers

  • "Most grasshoppers are polyphagous, eating vegetation from multiple plant sources"

Wikihow - Take Care of and Breed Grasshoppers

  • The container should be see-through, and at least 4*4*6
  • They eat leaves, vegetables, and grass

Youtube - Quick, Cheap, and Easy cricket/Grasshopper breeding set up

  • Best food for them is lettuce and carrots

Design Components:

  • Water in a plastic container with flowers floating on top
    • The water is for the crickets to drink to prevent dehydration
    • Flowers are so that the crickets have a place to sit while drinking water without drowning in the water. There are also rocks in the plastic container that help to make the water level more shallow
  • White rocks on the soil
    • We were afraid that the water that we put in the water would make the soil too wet for the crickets to be able to stand, so we placed some rocks to prevent that from happening
  • Soil
    • We put soil in 1/5 of the container. This is because we had some tall plants that we wanted in our container that would not have fit in otherwise.
  • Rocks under the soil
    • The rocks are for extra water in the soil to be drained out to the bottom
    • In our last ecodome, the soil became sloshy due to the fact that the water would stay in the soil, so we put some rocks on the bottom of the container.
  • Lettuce
    • This is for the food for the crickets. We put in 4-5 pieces of lettuce, which is an abundance of food for the cricket, but it may be useful when the crickets have a desire to eat more food.
  • Small plants
    • We put in some small plants to be backup food for the crickets just in case they are all of the lettuce.
    • The leaves see to be a little droopy, so they may die at the end of the experiment
  • Tall plants
    • This is mainly for photosynthesis, so that the crickets have enough oxygen to be able to breathe
    • They are quite tall and the leaves seem to be shielded away from the sunlight, so they may not produce as much oxygen as we would have liked.
  • Crickets
    • We chose to put in crickets because the crickets lived longer compared to grasshoppers in our last ecodome
    • We put in 2 of the crickets due to the fact that we did not want the crickets to become lonely.


This is our ecodome after a 6 of days had passed:

  • By the first glance, we are able to tell that there are long, white string like things that are stuck upon the surface of our case.
    • This may be waste from the worms, but it also may be mold that has occurred in the ecodome due to the excess water and rotting food.
    • We will only put a little amount of food and keep the water in a little container as well as some water in the soil for the plants
  •  The plants that we had in the middle of the ecodome, has turned into a darker green color and the main stem has turned into a curved shape that isn't able to support the leaves
    • I think this may be due to the fact that there may have been an excess amount of water or that the plant's roots and the actual plant was not properly pushed into the soil itself, therefore it couldn't gather enough nutrients
    • We might just mist water into the container rather than completely drenching the soil with water, and put in some rocks to level the soil
  • The rice seems to take a prominent layer on the top of the soil, at least 2/3 of it. It has puffed up and had taken over over half of the space on top of the soil. It also helped to provide a pungent stench throughout the ecodome container. 
    • The smell was probably mainly caused by the rice mixing with some of the dirt, or the rice rotting since it was left in captivity for a week.
    • Next time, we will definitely not put in any rice into the ecodome.
  • The seeds and other salty food we had provided has been either incorporated with the soil or the rice.
    • Perhaps we should put the salty food into a little bottle cap container in order to keep them in one place, or not include them at all, since the crickets seemed to dislike that food.
  • Our crickets, all 3 of them, have all died by the 2nd day and started to decompose as well as the grasshopper, which we would not find.
    • We will only put in 1 or 2 crickets the next time so that we do not put multiple living organisms to it's last days.
    • The grasshopper seemed to die the first, so we will not be putting any grasshoppers into the next ecodome.
    • Perhaps this was a lack of space, since all of the insects will not be able to have much living space among it's ecodome mates.

In our next design, we will only include 2 crickets, because they lived longer compared to the grasshoppers, and we will include some rocks in the soil so that it can become level. We will only include about 4 pieces of lettuce, and we will include a plant with a stronger stem so that it is able to conduct photosynthesis for a longer time. We will also just include enough water for the plants to be watered and some water in a container for the grasshoppers to drink.


Wikihow - How to Raise Crickets

  • Crickets need water to survive so we should give them a constant supply of them by putting it in a inverted bottle, or a container
  • They need heat to survive
  • They will eat "fruit, potato slices, greens, and other vegetable matter"

Youtube - How to Raise/Breed Crickets

  • They need to have a rather large living space

  • Humidity can be hazardous to crickets
  • The atmosphere shouldn't be damp

Day 1



  • Cotton balls filled with water (5 cotton balls)
    • This is so that the cotton ball’s water evaporates to create a moist atmosphere
  • Cling wrap contraption
    • The water will likely go to the top of the box, and the cling wrap might help to re-distribute the water faster since it is slightly slanted
  • Plants with large leaves (5-8 plants)
    • This is so that more photosynthesis is likely to happen and there will be more food for the bugs to graze on
  • Rocks, rice, water
    • This contraption on the bottom of the bottle is to balance the soil as well as to keep the soil moist.
  • Seeds (2 grams)
    • This is for the insect’s food, since it may not be able to survive just off of plant leaves
  • Water bottle (1 half way filled)
    • This will have tiny holes poked on the bottom for it to only release a small amount of water at any given time. It will also keep the atmosphere moist.
  • Straw (half of a straw)
    • This is connected to the very bottom layer of the jar to keep the atmosphere moist
  • Soil: ⅓ of the jar

Changes from Original Design

    • We decided to not include the bottle of water on the side of the container, because it look up much of the available space in the container. The water dripped faster than predicted, which made the soil underneath the bottle too saturated with water. Instead, we replaced it with a bottle cap filled with water.
    • We mixed the rice with the soil due to the fact that we couldn’t get the abundance amount of soil from the bottom of the container. We did not put in the straw, rocks, or rice on the bottom of the container like we had planned.
    • We also didn’t do the plastic wrap on the top of the container due to the fact that the opening of the container had the diameter of about 10 cm which wasn’t much space to construct a machine like this.
    • We forgot to bring the cotton balls, so we did not construct the cotton ball structure as well
    • We added 2 more crickets than the original plan because we were afraid the the living organisms would not be entertained over the course of the experiment


For the first quarter in the class of social studies, we have been exploring the world of revolutionary thinkers that was put on full blast during the Renaissance Period. My revolutionary thinker was Blaise Pascal, who was a mathematician as well as a theologist who discovered “Pascal’s Triangle”. In the reflection below, you will be able to see a collection of our work process leading up to our final narrative paragraphs.

1. Minimalist Movie Posters


2. Research Process


How did it go conducting research? Triumphs? Challenges?

While conducting research, I found that most of the information gathered from database resources were repetitive. I tried to go to different levels of reading in Britannica, which unraveled several pieces of information that was different from past places that I had read. My partner was trying to use Wikipedia and searching in another language in order to find more information, but I tried to avoid that “last-resort” source of information like that since it was like gathering a fruit from a tree where half of the apples were fresh and the other half was rotten.. I think that if I were to repeat this process of researching, then I would try to go to books that had passed their copyright dates which were written by the person that I am trying to research.

What did you learn about yourself when you had to take-notes?

I realised that I wasn’t very consistent at collecting the main points of the article presented by the databases. I think that I just take all of the information rather than the main points, which was exactly what I had done since the beginning of middle school. I think that I should have payed more attention to the topic sentences of paragraphs in order to connect the ideas with the main point. This may have helped to identify the small ideas and connect back to the main idea that I had read before.

3. Narrative Hooks 


What insights did you gain about narrative hooks that you may not have been so aware of before?

I learned that narrative hooks had to take on the job of not only interesting the reader, but to provide a sense of comfort and glorify a slightly boring subject. I never knew narrative hooks existed even though I had enjoyed reading historical fiction. I think that next time I read a historical fiction book, then I think that I would try to look for the narrative hook so that I am able to add some techniques to be able to write better narrative hooks.

What narrative hooks did you experiment with in your writing?

One of the elements that I used was an interesting fact that revealed another side to my revolutionary thinker. For example, I explained the religious side of Pascal where he would write pieces of writing dedicated to his thoughts on the topic of christianity. I also tried to over exaggerate while I was doing this to interest the reader a little more. Next time, I think that I’ll try an anecdote to make the atmosphere a little more comfortable for the reader.

4. Vlogging as a Metacognitive Strategy

What discoveries did you encounter as you were vlogging?

While vlogging my writing, I encountered how hard it was to do a simple task such as reading a piece of writing. I realized that I stumbled on words I would not if it wasn’t recording and my pronunciation of certain words changed just while I was reading the writing as well. For the vlogs in next quarter, I think that I will try to add more expression to the speech so that the audience would be more engaged with what I am reading.

5. Biggest Takeaway 


What is your BIGGEST TAKEAWAY (BIGGEST LEARNING) from our Revolutionary Thinker’s Project?

Being able to wear the eyes of a past genius is inspiring and it makes you want to wonder about all of the historical events surrounding them. There are so many inventions around that are being discovered and perfected today that are like the scientific mindset to the people of the scientific revolution. Also, I learned that curiosity is key to be able to shape the world. With this idea, I felt inspired to do everything I’m able to do to fulfill that emerging piece of curiosity rather than being passive.
