ELA Semester 1 SLC

During our semester 1 ELA class, we did small activities and big activities. Sometimes, we did in big or small group, and also did independently. My biggest assignment was making the newspaper. I chose the topic about left VS right. I was good about the information of left, right and both handed, but I thought I wrote too much in a way as a scientific article rather than a newspaper.

I learned how we could research information the way we wanted to. The researching skills helped me get a reliable source and citations about the source.

RESEARCH PROCESS

↪How did it go conducting research? Triumphs? Challenges?

My triumph was finding citations about Robert Hooke because he was famous for cells and microscope, so even not biography, but also books like Lecture of Springs or Micrographia contains information about him. My challenge was distinguishing what paragraph should go in the box.

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

I learned to paraphrase long articles and a long sentence into a word. Also, the key point of taking notes is picking advanced words throughout the article and using them as the main point of the paragraph.

NARRATIVE HOOKS

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

The insights I’ve gained about narrative hooks are the most important sentence to persuade or to give more interests to the audiences to be heard and give informations. I also wrote on facts that people didn’t really know or the fact that wasn’t shown in Internet without real research in books. 

↪What narrative hooks did you experiment with in your writing?

I experimented a hook that was a fact that most people wouldn’t know for example if they didn’t see the picture of the flea. I depicted the photos from a book called Micrographia that showed pictures into cells of small creatures we couldn’t see. Also, I started with questions that people couldn’t answer because it was too hard to be answered or because they have never thought about it.

VLOGGING as a METACOGNITIVE STRATEGY

↪What discoveries did you encounter as you were vlogging?

Vlogging helped me read out loud the whole paragraph what I wrote for Revolutionary Thinkers Project. It helped me edit what I needed to and also understand more of what I wrote. As I was reading through all of the paragraphs, I also encountered partner’s paragraph to be refixed and give more information.

BIGGEST TAKEAWAY

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

My biggest takeaway learning was based on during in the Scientific Revolutionary era, lots of scientists made more advanced thinkings than what people thought before and the science that was discovered and proved that time was influenced until the present times. Also, because spontaneous things happen around the world, scientists who have curiosity about it could have found out the mystery. For instance, about the gravitation, if Newton didn’t notice for the apple on the tree falling to the ground, he won’t have found if gravity existed in the world.
