Term 3

Reflection of Learning

How much did you know about the subject (theme analyzing) before we started?

I knew enough about it to know what theme was and how to identify it, but not how to support it with evidence, now I do.

How do you feel about this piece of work? What parts of it do you particularly like? Dislike? Why? Why Not?

I feel that I did pretty well on this. I particularly liked the fact that we got to choose what book we could do which made it overall easier and more enjoyable to do. I feel like I could have gotten better evidence for this, but I feel like I did relatively well.

What is the one thing you particularly want people to notice when they look at your work?

I honestly want them to notice that I took my time doing this, and I worked hard.

One thing I would like to improve on is...

I feel like I could improve on my time management, and evidence finding .

Summary of the Book I read for the Essay

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Harry Potter isn't a normal boy, infact he's far from it, he is a wizard. Every school year Harry goes to a wizarding school called Hogwarts. This year, however, is different. He is under the watchful eye of most teachers this year, because of Serious Black, the first wizard to ever escape Azkaban is said to be looking for him. Because of Black, there are dementors (which Harry isn't fond of) are lurking about the school grounds in search of Black. Harry doesn't know why he is the one that Serious wants, is Black meaning to kill Harry? Or does he want something else?

My Favorite Thing We Did This Semester Was...

The Wonder Project

The wonder Project was my favorite project because it was the most fun thing, you got to pick almost any question about something you had, and answer it with research. I like doing research to answer things.
