Before I came into his class I wasn’t sure
what we were going to do. When I first walked into Mr. Block’s class I wasn’t a
good writer and I didn’t like history class but Mr. Block made his projects
different and creative. Every project was unique in its on way and that’s what
I liked about it. We had the freedom to write our thoughts in our papers.
I wrote a poem the
first day of Mr. Blocks English class. He told us to go home and write a
page tonight and let the page come out of you then it will be true.
“I am me and that’s who I want to be
I am fifteen cool,
fun and free
I see and hear just
But very different I am to you”
About a month ago Mr. Block told us to make poetry wiki of
all different poems we are going to write in class during our poetry unit. One
of poems I was most proud of was my riff poem.
“The feeling you get when you realized you can run all those
milesThat quote was only part of my poem but you do not even need
to see the rest of it to know that my writing has changed. I have grown as a
writer and as a student in Mr. Blocks English and history class.
Every step we take were getting closer
Is that want we want?”
There were projects that I found hard and
there was projects that I thought were easy but I made sure I turned in my best
work. Hard work leads to a lifetime accomplishments. My language autobiography
was a writing that I worked hard on. In my Language autobiography I wrote,
“Yes, it may take a lot of work and you may struggle and at times it might not
make sense but language helps you accomplish greater things.” That is true with
language but also with everything else if you work hard enough.
In history we were learning about sweatshops
and revolutions and something I heard a lot when were talking about these
topics is “ Once something negative happens then more negative things happen.”
When I think about this subject I just think that hope will get you through your
challenges. People are making our clothes for lower then minimum wage. They
will punish you if you do not do your work correct and all you want is the end.
Struggles help you work harder to achieve your goals.
Overall Mr. Block’s class is a class that
will help you think outside the box. Create things and write about things you
never thought you could do. His collaboration with companies outside of school
makes you want you explore new things.
