21st Century Literacy
This year 21st Century Literacy has helped me get better in a variety of ways as a student at Cedar Ridge. Some of the strengths I am still developing are reading, writing and oral communication. In 21st Century Literacy I used an audio book for Flowers for Algernon because I find I’m a slow reader and having the audio book helped me. So far we have read Flowers For Algernon, All American Boys and King Lear. In writing I improved at editing my punctuation and I learned more about poetry and writing poetry, with the story we read King Lear. A strength I have is oral communication,I’m stronger at at understanding the book when it is read aloud to me. My presentation skills are a developing skill.

How would you help with suicide?

How would you help with suicide? Introduction My survey is about suicide and how we can help people who feel like they don’t belong. I found that the answers i got were a bit surprising to me and there were answers that were similar and it was shocking but it was definitely interesting to see what everyone said. Questions and Answers The questions I asked were: -How many people do you think commit suicide per year? And the answer was over 1, 000,000 -How would you help someone who’s suicidal?

Dear Guest,

Hello everyone who’s reading this right now. I wanted to let you all know that I have made a blog for my school. On my blog I will be posting my homework so for examples poems, projects, etc. The purpose for my blog is to get feedback on my work, when I’m in a higher grade I’ll right higher level reports and try and find someone who maybe does the same job that I would like to do and get noticed and have a meeting with them. Some background information about my blog. Our whole school is doing this blog and we’re doing it to get advice on homework and get the attention of people who have jobs and maybe jobs that I’m interested in and what everyone else in my class are interested in too. What I would like for you to do? Well I would like for you to visit my blog maybe once or twice a week and leave comments on what you think about my work and what I should improve on and give me…

The Lost One

She was coming home from a friend’s
She had lost her way to get home
Lost and confused, she had just lost everything
She can’t decide on anything
She wants things that she can’t have
When she found hope it disappeared again
She wants to tell people but she’s not sure,Who she can trust.
Finally her parents got her into a new school
She was having a great time
But the past was still in her head
She tried as hard as she could to get thoughts out,
But every time she did another sad moment came up.
She kept trying to find ways around them but she couldn’t
She wants a new life,  she want to be happy, but how
It seems that her future is what’s keeping her on her feet
What will happen when she falls?
See all these questions are for a girl who’s lost everything
She’s lost, she’s scared, and confused
She needs someone, anyone
