Geografía 28/04

En este vídeo incito a la gente a que cuide el agua. La consigna consistía era la siguiente:
Primero tuvimos que ver un vídeo acerca del agua, que es, que tiene, para que se usa, que otros recursos naturales hay, y que esta pasando. Luego tuvimos que responder un par de preguntas sobre el vídeo y todo lo que explica. Después de esto empezamos, finalmente, a preparar el vídeo.
Para hacer el vídeo lo primero que teníamos que hacer era un guion. El vídeo no podía durar mas de 2 minutos ni menos que 30 segundos. Entonces hicimos el guion y se lo mandábamos a Ro, nuestra maestra de geografía, para que vea y lo corrija. Una vez ella lo corregía nos mandaba comentarios de que podíamos mejorar, si era el caso. Finalmente, después de tener el guion listo, era hora de grabar. Por ultimo, después de grabarlo todo, lo subías al classroom de geografía o a youtube y pasabas el link al classroom.

Summary of not waving but drowning. By Thomas and Benicio

By Thomas and Benicio

Summary:

This poem talks about a man that is under the water drowning, so he started shaking the hand for somebody to come and help him. But people instead thought that he was waving, saying “hi”. The tone of the poem is dark, sad, you can imagine a person alone, in a room,  talking about something sad. The voice seems to come from a narrator, 3rd person, that knows what happened and the feelings of people.

Literary devices:

“It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way”= It is a metaphor. It wants to say that he couldn’t stand that people passed away without helping him.
“Heard him” = It is an alliteration. It wants to say that someone did or did not heard him, put attention on what he was saying.

“loved larking” =It is an alliteration. It wants to say that someone loves something, in this place, larnking.

How to write an essay

First you have to prepare what you are going to write. Then you have to write what you prepare. How?

The first thing is your argument. Write your arguments about the poem/what you are reading. Then it comes the evidence (you have to give evidence to your arguments). It can be with quotes. The next step, and the most important, is your analysis. Here you will include all the things you see, reed, understand, etc. Then you do a transition to the next paragraph. And finally you do all this again.

When you finish writing you have a limited time to check if all is good.

ESSAY

Good points:  He does a very good analysis. He uses appropriate vocabulary and talks with great posture. He separates in paragraphs. He talks in a way where is simple to read and think about what he wrote. Something good is that he says different things in all the paragraphs.

Bad points: He do not start the essay with an argument. and he never uses quotes. Quotes are a crucial thing on the essays because they approve what you are saying, they “say” to the person that is reading that ,what you said, is TRUE. Also he do not use connectors as “at first”, “finally”.
