We watched a video about how to end poverty in 15 years. It showed this guy talking about poverty and telling us about the people who suffer from it. Some interesting things in the video are the graphs that he showed to the audience. They were satisfied to look at. This video made me more aware of poverty. I did not have any questions about the video.

This is a group project that my team and I did together. The requirements for this project is to fill up the document and create a water filter to filter dirty water. We all had the same idea when we were brainstorming for designs for our filter. We all wanted to get a big plastic bottle and cut it in half, then put the top in a cup and put in random materials in our filter. So we went with that. For our first prototype we did not plan much, we just randomly dumped materials into the bottle to filter the water. We got a pretty good result but the sand added to the turbidity and caused the water to become slightly dirty. So for our 2nd prototype we just did not use sand but we put in big rocks and more layers of materials. We filtered a lot of the salt out. Our results for our final design were not finished, the salt still has to dry. But our main results were the pH was 3 the copper was 160 and the turbidity was low. I think the project was fun but sometimes we did not get things finish and we were kind of slow in making all of the designs.c
Making the video was not that easy, I had to find all the sound effects that gave me permission to use it, I had to make the images and find a way to put them in the movie. But I am kind of proud of the product. It did not come out as I expected it to, but I feel like it was dramatic and can make the viewer feel something. The challenges that I faced was, trying to find the right sound effects and music that I can use without getting sued. Sometimes the sound effects that I wanted were not available, so I had to find a different one. What I am proud of is the sound effects gave a huge impact to the viewer. emphasize was to show the reader not to kill things. I made the pictures sad because killing is sad. I made the pictures in the beginning happy to show that when something is alive, it is happy. What I would change next time is my voice. I feel like my voice acting was not good enough and it sounded more unimpressed than sad. Some advice is to try to use sounds in your video, it will make it have more of an impact.
What I had learned about poetry is that some poems can give you a feeling. Like, a happy poem can make you cheerful, a poem with lots of white spaces can make you feel isolated. I don’t think I can consider myself as a poet, not after the bad grade I’ve been getting, I don’t think poetry is my thing. I think I will still write poetry because I think I might have to do it again in the future. My experience with poetry is that it can be frustrating to come up with an idea to make one, but when you come up with a really good poem, it can be fun! As a writer, I think I have grown to do a lot more figurative language like similes, hyperboles, onomatopeias, etc. I think I have also grown to use more sophisticated words as well like: when saying fast, I might say rapid instead.
Some of the challenges were that I had had to use the I-Pad. I would have found it easier to use the apps on my computer so I don’t have to wait for next class to do it on the I-Pad. I choose the image because my poem was about a spider and exploring nature. So I thought if I used a spider web in the forest, it would match the poem.
