History (Inflation and hyperinflation)

Our teacher left us some assaiments to do:

Hyperinflation in germany in 1920’s: https://youtu.be/o5b618iV3tM

In the end of the war much of europ was in ruins. Germany  was defeated and so they wanted payback. They started to print money, by that time $1 was 4 marks and later   $1 ended up being 4 trillion marks! The government money finally was worthless and that destroyed the economy.

This video explains what would happen if a revolution started in our country. People would print money and even if in the beginning they would celebrate, eventually too much money will end up chasing a limit and a loaf of bread that was $1 could end up costing $100. The money will end up having no value and useless.

Inflation: a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.

Hyperinflation: monetary inflation occurring at a very high rate.

Dios Del Olimpo

En la clase de historia, nos asignaron un dios del Olimpo a cada uno y teníamos que investigar sobre el mismo. En mi grupo, investigamos sobre Afrodita y Hermes.

Afrodita: es la diosa del amor y la belleza. Su esposo era Hefesto (era muy feo y cojo), sus amantes eran Anquises, Dionisio, Adonis, Poseidón y Ares, sus hijos eran Anteros, Beroe, Deimos, Eros, Erotes, Hermafrodito, Armonía, Hímero, Yacos, Peito, Fobos, Potos, Príapo y Rodo y su rival la diosa Perséfone (la diosa del mundo subterráneo). Su mito de origen es que surgió de las olas del mar en un carro mientras todos los otros dioses admiraban su belleza y alegría. Además, sus padres eran Zeus y Dione.

Sus virtudes eran su belleza, su alegría. Sus defectos eran su rivalidad, que era infiel, vanidosa y vengativa.

Hermes: mensajero de los dioses (hijo de Zeus y Maya)
Él guiaba a las almas de los muertos hacia el submundo y se creía que el poseía poderes mágicos sobre sueño. Él también era el dios del comercio y protector de comerciantes y pastores. Era una divinidad de los atletas y protegía los estadios y los gimnasios. Se consideraba responsable de la buena suerte como el abundancia. A pesar de su características virtuosas, él también era peligroso enemigo, embaucador, y ladrón. Ejemplo: el día de su nacimiento robó el rebaño eso hermano (Apolo).

Nos separamos en diferentes grupos, a mi y a mi grupo nos toco observar a los chiquitos en el recreo y sacar nuestras propias conclusiones de que hacian, otro grupo les toco dialogar y preguntar que estaban haciendo asi teniamos uan diea de a lo que les gustaba jugar. El ultimo grupo tenia que investigar en internet y buscar sobre  juegos cortos y simples. Al final de la clase, comentamos y pegamos posits en la pared de las conclusiones que sacamos de lo que les gustaba hacer a los chiquitos. Esto va a ser una gran ayuda para ya empezar nuestro juego de mesa.

“One Art” questions

1What do you think the poet means by “the art of losing” and how serious is she about this idea?

2How important is the poem’s form to your reading of it?

3What effect does the refrain have upon your understanding of the poem’s tone? How does the meaning of this single line change throughout the piece?

4What are we actually meant to believe about the poet’s reaction to her losses?

5How honest is the poet with herself? With her readers?

RESPUESTAS 

  1. I think the poems refers to the process of what you want to achieve like realizing, admitting or forgetting it. 
  2. Many people could interprete the word “loosing” in many different ways so it depends on the person, since we all read and comprehend ir differently based on our internal problems.
  3. This poem refrained the quote “the art of loosing isn’t hard to master”, although at the ending this phrase is changed to “the art of loosing isn’t too hard to master” which I think is a more honest quote. I think that while writing the poem she realizes that is it hard  and she doesn’t need to be afraid to admit it so she later becomes more honest not only with the readers, but with herself, since she meant to be realistic with people. 
  4. We are meant to understand that loosing is a hard stage everyone at some point goes through their life, and people might experience the art of loosing in a different way. When people think the word “loosing” they usually remember an specific moment, might be loosing an object, an animal, a feeling, or even a person. That means every person interpretes the word differently.
    1. With the readers the author at the beginning she refrains the quote “is not hard” which seems to have a superior tone to it since she makes you feel like spending so much time thinking about your loses is dumb and a waist of time. In my opinion this sounds really idealistic because all people have different ways of forgetting, and you never know what that “lose” someone is thinking about could be, because we have all different understandings of this word. At the ending she becomes more honest since she changes the phrase to “is too not hard” where she opens up telling you that the rode isn’t easy to achieve overcoming a loose, and that the word “art” is the process you go through. Everyone experiences different looses, therefore a  different process of forgetting or realizing.

FOR HEIDI WITH THE BLUE HAIR-POEM

  • This poem is about a girl called Heidi, who is the main character. She had recently faced living in a new country and her mother’s death. Her first day of school she went with her hair dyed in blue, which I think it represents her emotions based on the death of her mother. The school headmistress opposed to her style and sent her back to her home, that is when she told her father very sadly about the situation that had happened and so he decided to call the school to explain that her hair didn’t meant her attitude would change. Although they never commented about her mother’s death being the problem, it was obvious that the school knew it.  The next day her friend showed up with her dyed hair in the school colors to mock the school and show Heidi she wasn’t alone, at that moment, they had already won.
  • Adcock intentions on writing this poem was to show her goddaughter she wasn’t wrong for expressing herself in different ways, and that the school was being ridiculous with the punishment they gave her.
  • answer missing
  • answer missing
  • The school and the headmistress were being mocked by Heidi’s friend and Heidi’s father because they both thought the school’s actions facing the problem were ridiculous and over exaggerated because there is not a rule that says you cant dye your hair blue and they knew about the hard times Heidi was facing.
  • The voice was against the school. I think the voice feels angry with this unfairness that is why they call out the school so much.
  • The tone of the voice tells the poem on his point of view. It’s clear that the voice is on Heidi’s side and the ideas highlighted were the color of her hair, her friend showing Heidi she wasn’t alone, the mother death etc. I can spot the main ideas because, without them, the poem wouldn’t make sense.
    • The things that I spotted were:
    1. When the father mocked the headmistress making her sound ridiculous because her daughter didn’t dyed her hair in the school colors, that was irony!
    2. I quoted this metaphor “The battle was already won”, this meant that Heidi, her friend, and her father won against the school.
    3. The exageration (hyperbole) of the school while sending Heidi back home
    4. The color blue of Heidi’S hair simbolizes the sadness of her mother’s death.
    5. There was a conflict between the school and Heidi.
  • Because of the color of her hair she is supposedly making her a rebel. In my opinion, it is a way of expressing her sadness through colors instead of attitudes because although she is definitely more depressed than the usual because of the lost and her new life, her attitude didn’t change for worse, she didn’t showed her sadness by making trouble.
  • The battle is against Heidi and the school.

A) is searched infromation about de the home front, this are some of the links I used; http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/trail/wars_conflict/home_front/the_home_front_12.shtml

Who Was Rosie the Riveter?


B) i didn’t know that women worked in factories to replace men, that was interesting.
C) we used ThingLink beacuse we find ir easy to use, and it had cool features you could add to your poster.
D) I did my reasarch really well, although i didn’t put that much effort on the poster. I think I did my part but I could have done more. I would give myself a 7 because I didn’t talked with confidence during my presentation. My group did a great job because we all knew our topic, except for Lucas, he gathered information of his topic, so I think in the presentation he was just nervous. I would give the group a 8
