Letter to Leonardo Dicaprio. “Before the flood”

Dear Mr. Dicaprio.

I am a 16-year-old girl from Sandvika, Norway.

Today in English class today we watched a very interesting documentary about how we are treating the environment and what’s going to happen with it if we continue to treat the plant the way we’re doing right now. This documentary was your documentary called “before the flood”. You seemed weary positive and optimistical about the Paris agreement and the future of the earth. But this documentary was created some years ago and a lot has changed over the years. You made a lot of interesting point in the documentary but is this then now relevant and do you know what will happen in the future?

I am really happy that someone with who is this popular and with as many followers. Because it will really inspire people and show us that is we don’t make an effort now we will regret it a lot in the future. But it does not help to get inspired if we don’t know what to do, so I am asking what can we do to save the planate?

My reading of; The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

Unknown.jpeg

In class some weeks ago we got told to read a book, we could choose between two books where I choose “the absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian”.

Theme

the theme is a boy how makes a life-changing choice to leave his hometown and go to school at the neighboring town Reardan.

 

Plot

The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian is a book written by Sherman Alexie and it’s about a boy called Arnold Spirit, Jr. (Junior). He lives in a small and poor reservation in America, at this place school is not a high priority. And because of this, he decides to changes school to the neighbor towns school. Because of this decision, he is looked at as a traitor. And the book is therefore about how he handles having two lives and how that works out.

 

Setting

junior lives at a poor reservation (the rez) but he goes to school in another town called Reardan. The rez is a poor reservation, where school and education don’t matter. But Reardan is a town with white rich persons, where education and to have a Succesful life after school is a high priority. These places are two completely different places and Junior struggles to fit into both places.

 

Character development

In the beginning Junior is careful and å bit of a covert but in the ending, he gains a lot of confidence and gets a lot more self-respect.

Climate change by the U.S

 

In this text I am going to tell you about climate changes and how the U.S government deals with it.

The climate change is a bigger topic than ever now, due to the massive effect it has on the world today.  this is effected has caused loss of sea ice, that made the sea level rise and more intense heat waves. But the far more dangerous and deadly is that the hurricanes and cyclones keep getting.

The areas around Mexico and the golf are especially exposed to this changes. With the recent Hurricane Florence and the Hurricane in Puerto Rico last year.

The worst part is the way that the U.S government manipulates the death of the victims that have died due to these changes, and the way that they are trying to hide the number altogether. Because instead of saying  “over one thousand lives were lost” they would say “several hundred lost their lives”.

And that the president Donald J. Trump claims that the U.S emergency services do a fantastic job, even the way that they handled the hurricane, despite the fact that nearly 3000 died. He compared them to the hurricane in 2005 where 1,200 died and claimed that they did h much better job.

The reason why the U.S government and the emergency service attempts there best to hide the numbers of the victims are because they are not fit to handle hurricanes, and they are unable to help everyone who needs there help.

These changes are real and happening right now, and it is something that’s going to effect ur live a lot in the future. The way that the U.S government tries to hide the fact that they can not save everyone, is not fair to anyone.

 

 

 

Class: 10/09-18

  1. Today we had a task where we had to discuss with someone in the class about a chosen topic. I got partnered up with Karoline Storlien and we discussed if we should have homework or if we rather should stay in school longer. I thought that we should have homework and she thought that we should stay in school longer.                I think that I won the argument because in the conclusion we said that we should have homework, but only if it was nessesergi and we were going to learn from it. So the teacher shouldn’t just give homework just to give us homework, but because it is something that we are going to learn something or use what we have done.
  2. The second thing we did today was to learn how to talk and listen better. With that, we watch a video where we learned 10 things we need to improve.
  1. don’t multitask and be present
  2. always assume that you are going to learn, because everyone is an expert on something
  3. questions. Ask simple questions)
  4. go with the flow (continue to listen)
  5. If you don’t know, say that you don’t know
  6. don’t equate your experience at yours.
  7. try not to repeat yourself
  8. stay out of the leed (dates, time, forget the details)
  9. listen (the most important thing you can learn, we would rather talk)
  10. be brief

My book choice

 

In this task we were going to choose two between books. The first one is “about a boy” written by Nick Hornby and “the absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian” by Sherman Alexie

The first book is “about a boy”

The second book is Thd true diary of a part-time Indian

Bilderesultat for the true diary of a part time indian

I chose the book “the true diary of a part-time Indian. The reason that I choose this book s because it seems interesting to read about a boy who lives with a variety of medical problems and gets bullied but still makes more out of his life than the rest of the people in his hometown and his past to success. the book is also seaming easy to read with many pictures.

Now I will now read the first chapter of the book and see if it meets my expectation.

My first blog post

Hi, my name is Leonora Aanesen, and this is my blog.

I am a 16-year-old girl from Norway. I live in a city called Sandvika, which is about 10 minutes away from Oslo (the capital in Norway). I began as a freshman at Sandvika high school about a week ago, before that, I went to Gjettum middle school for three years, and before that, I went to Evje primary school for 7 years.

But since this is a new blog I will start by writing about me and my family. At home, I live with my mother, father, two brothers and a dog. My mother is from a small place in Denmark called Skelskør. My father is from Østerås which is a place in Norway, and both of my brothers are born and raised in the same place as me here in Norway. All of us live in a house up on a small hill about 10 minutes away from my school. On my free time, I like to hang out with my friends and work. I work as a gymnastics coach for children between 11 and 15 years old.

I am writing this blog for English class and one of the tasks in the class today eas to write about what expectations I have for English class this year. The expectation I got for English this year is that I want to learn a lot because during junior high we did not learn everything we were supposed to learn and the things we learn were though poorly. Which leads me to my second point I want to learn in a fun way, with new and challenging ways to learn.
