Meassge from the Pigman

“Meassge from the Pigman”, is the next story that we have to read for our language class. After reading it we have 2 tasks to complete. First we have to prepare two questions to ask to the class to know if the read and understood the story. And secondly, we have to choose 3 words of the story that nobody knows to teach their meaning to the class.

Here is the story:

Eleven- Summary and Cover

Last class our teacher of language, Pilar, asked us to make a summary about the story we read call “Eleven” and also to invent the cover of this story.

Here is my summary and my cover:

Main Ideas:

  • Rachel is turning to eleven but she feels she is 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1
  • She had a theory that said that life is like an onion, each year inside the other
  • She wanted to be 102 to knew what to said to Mrs Price when she made her put the sweater
  • Mrs Price forced her to put on the ugly sweater
  • Because she is very sensitive and vulnerable she started crying as if she was three

Summary:

The story “Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros, deals with a girl called Rachel who is turning to eleven, although she still feels she is 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1 year old. At the beginning of the story she confess to us that when her birthday arrives she doesn’t feel that she is older she feels she’s still ten. She has a theory that says that the rings inside an onion are like our lives, each year inside the other.

Rachel wishes she was older to know what to answer to her math teacher when she gave her an ugly red sweater. Mrs Price, Rachel’s teacher gave her a red, old, raggedy and smelly sweater and forced her to put it on. This moment of the story shows us how sensitive and vulnerable Rachel is because when she has to put the sweater on, she started crying as if she was 3 years old. Although she knew her parents were waiting for her at home with a enormous and lovely birthday cake she still wishes to be 102.

Taking Notes Biology- 15/3

Biology Taking Notes:

  • Variation: differences between individuals of the same species.
  • Four types of Variation: Continuous, Discontinuous, Genetic and Environmental.
  • Continuous Variation: is a type of variation were the living organisms can’t be classify into many groups.
  • Discontinuous Variation: is a type of variation were the living organisms can be classify into many different many groups.
  • Genetic Variation: is the information given by all de genes we have inside. That information can change with a mutation.
  • Mutation: when the genetic mayorías of the cell change suddenly.
  • Environmental Variation: the Variation that can happen in our body is because of the environment.
  • We have to type of Selection: natural and artificial.
  •  

    Artificial Selection: made by man to increase production

  •  

    Natural Selection: it’s selected by nature, nature selects the fittest.

Diputados y Senadores Nacionales Litoral

El viernes pasado nuestra profesora de Educación Ética y Ciudadana, María Laura Nasjleti, nos dividió en grupos de 3 o 4 personas para hacer un trabajo. El mismo consistía en que a cada grupo le tocaba una sección distinta de Argentina como por ejemplo la patagonia, cuyo, el litoral, etc. Ya asignada la sección de la Argentina a cada grupo teniamos que encontrar los diputados y senadores de las provincias que conformaban esa sección de la Argentina.

“Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros

In the language class, with our teacher,Pilar Pando, we read a story call Eleven. After reading it we analized the plot and the personality of the main character, Rachel, all together. Then after analying it all together we divided into group and we had to do a presentation including  information about Sandra Cisneros, the plot, characters, point of view, tenses and vocabulary. My group was formed by Luz Esteban, Olivia Obligado, Lucía Caviglione and me.

This is our presentation:

ELEVEN

 

Information about Sandra Cisneros:

Sandra Cisneros was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1954. She was the only daughter of 6 brothers which made her feel isolated. Her family was from Mexico and they migrated to United States. As a consequence, she didn`t belong to either culture. In addition, she moved frequently during her childhood and travelled a lot to Mexico so that they can visited her paternal grandmother who lived there. Sandra Cisneros found out she like to write in high school,  she wrote poetry and was the literary magazine editor.

 

Plot:

This story is about a girl named Rachel who is turning eleven years old. She has a theory which says that when you are eleven years old you are also 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2 and 1. She thinks that the way you grow is like the rings of a tree trunk or like an onion, life is a collection of layers. One day she went to school and her teacher, Mrs. Price, showed a reed sweater to the class and asked whose was it. The sweater was ugly, old and didn’t have such a great smell. One of the classmates, Sylvia Saldivar, told her it was her’s . In that moment she wisehd she was one hundred and two to know how to defend herself. She tried to tell it wasn’t her’s but Mrs Price, force her to put it on. Children started to laugh and Rachel couldn’t handle it so she started to cry. All along the story, she tries to let clear that although you are an old person, sometimes,  you may want to cry as if you were three or run to your mom’s arms as if you were five.

 

Point of view:

In the story “Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros, the point of view is first person narrator. In this case, the story is told from the point of view of Rachel, the protagonist.

 

Tenses:

 

Present Simple: “what they don’t understand about birthdays is what they never tell you”

 

Present Continuous: “…but all of a sudden I’m feeling sick inside”

 

Past Simple: “I wish I didn’t have only eleven years”

 

Past Continuous: “…I was anything than but eleven”

 

Present Perfect Continuous: “That’s when everything I have been holding in since this morning”

 

Wish: “I wish I was invisible but I’m not”

 

Conditional type 3:  “If I was 102 I would have known what to say..”

  • Raggedy/Ragged: nasty, really ugly
  • Itchy/Itch: to have or cause an uncomfortable feeling in the skin that makes you want to rub it with your nails

Characters:

 

 

  • Rachel:

 

In the story Eleven, Rachel the protagonist of the story is turning to 11. We can describe her as a very childish and immature girl that was not self confident. She was very shy, that’s why at school she wasn’t very popular. We can also see that she is a sensitive and vulnerable person. Throughout the story we can also see bad and help less she was because not even the fact that was her birthday could cheer her up. To end up, we can also see that she over analyzed things too much so that made her more insecure.

 

  • Mrs. Price :

In the story Eleven she was rachel’s teacher, she tells all the classroom that Rachel was the owner of the gassed red sweater and she force Rachel to put that nasty sweater on.

 

  • Silvia Saldivar:

In the story Eleven, Silvia Saldivar was a classmate of Rachel. She was the one who told everybody that the red sweater belonged to her, she did it to bored rachel.

Taking notes

Descent: living organism that come after us/ that we produce

  • Descent with modification:  we descent of our parents but we are decadent with modification because we are not exactly the same at our parents, we are a mixture of both. Sometimes we are different because people mutate
  • Common Descent: all the living organisms that live nowadays have come from the same original living organisms.
  • Mimicry: the ability some living organisms have to defend themselves by pretend to look as something dangerous.
  • Common ancestor: Charles Darwin said that we all come from 1 ancestor. We all come from 1. We are all made from de same material

 

 

Multiple Choice- Varation and Natural Selection

Last wednsday, our Biology teacher Ceci, told us to answer a multple choice from a DVD our Biology book provides, to know what we knew about this new topic we are going to study this year that is variation and natural selection.
