Project Progress

1.I have started finding information about Fresno state college and have been putting together different information that I find would be intresting for students interested in Fresno. I have also been looking at different online websites to create my scrapbook. 2.I still have to put all the information together on my blog to create the college blog along with the final touches of my scrapbook. 3. The college blog is exactly what every high school student looks to find non confusing and straight out information on the campus and the experiences that can be found. The scrapbook is something more personal that cann allow people to know me more to depth and identify what I enjoy to do and why I do some of the things I do.

Blog college project

I have decided to do a blog about the college I will be attending which is Fresno state. I want to inform not just current seniors but high school students about the process of applying and the extracurricular I have done that has been a great help to attending college. I plan to continue with my blog my freshman year to show the struggles and hardships of my first year there. I hope to have other current students at Fresno commenting and viewing my blog. I will be showing my classmates my blog by talking to them about visiting my blog and commenting to things they have questions or they think is helpful to know.

study progress

I have reviewed all the lit terms and started writing practice essays on different pieces of literature we have read. I am still having trouble on writing the introduction paragraph. As well as how to first introduce the topic. I don't understand how to connect the needed lit terms in the essay so it doesn't just sound likea list of things but a productive essay.

"A Reflection on unstrctured Learning"

The passage given by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons uses imagery to provide structure and meaning to it. The main theme of the passage is that of hiding behing something that you wish to be but are not. The purpose of the text was to provide actual examples in which humans can relate to today. Those which deal with confusion and a place of belonging in society. A part of a whole in which one can relate to. The theme emphasized on the main character wanting to find a costume into which he would fit into. A costume of which it would be a mask into society. A longing of fitting in and being someone in the world. In which it can as well be related to a hero who with his costume is adored and famous but without it blends in with hoi poi. The main character wanted to become something more and once he found a name that fit wanted to transform into that. A name that was given by another that merly completed his way of life. At which the main character looked to the outside world to define who he was without looking to himself for answer. The answer which he had in front of him all along but needed another to point it out to be able to understand it himself.
