Charles's Ilp

My Ilp is the Ace Program but I haven't attended the meeting on the 10 of November because I had a family emergency. I am going to attend on November 24 though. I have a task to bring in a picture.

Library ILP #2

At the central library I am going to be doing video reviews with Hannah Dunakin on different music, movies and books which will be posted on the libraries social media accounts. So far we have been making good progress, though we haven't yet completed a video. So far we have mostly been planning and writing a script and readying our materials. I'm looking forward to using the libraries green screen, I think that should be fun.

Advanced Art Photo Gallery by Jared Trusty

The four assignments that I had to do was a self portrait, bat cut outs, a free draw, and a ceiling tile. To create my projects, I made sections on my pages and ceiling tile. On my ceiling tile, I cut the board into 4 sections. From the origin i could then draw the facial features of the character that I painted. For my self portrait i divided my head into six parts to create my eyes, nose and mouth. Everything else that I added to my face would follow from space. My free drawing is a picture of Athena. She has a shield on her left hand, spear in her right hand, and an owl on her left shoulder. For some reason I wanted to just draw my visualization of her. My ceiling tile had a little more thought, I decided to paint a character from Clash of Clans. Clash of Clans is one of my favorite mobile games and i believe it best represents me. For the bat cut outs I tried to form a bat symbol just so add a little extra to the assignment. In my self portrait, i used a symbol pose to achieve a full resemblance of me. My shading of my skin is not accurate but my facial feature match completely.

Jesse's Q1 Art Portfolio

In the first quarter my artwork does a good job of showing a little bit of myself within them. Within each assignment I work on a unique aspect of what is expected to make the art my own. For the most part a recurring theme is my passion, sports. In both the ceiling tile and drawing I chose to honor two of my favorite athletes (Patrick Peterson and Claude Giroux respectively) by recreating them in my art.

For the bats assignment I chose to incorporate my favorite super hero and show another side of myself by opting to make the "Batman" bats as opposed to conventional Halloween bats. Finally the self portrait is literally a reflection myself completing the inner journey my art shows. My art this quarter show my passions and likes and then finished by showing how I see myself.

Leo Cassel-Siskind Assignment 3

2. I have a few devices that connect to my Local Area Network. There are four phones which includes two iphones, a blackberry, and a slide phone. We have four computers and a printer which connects to one of the computers. 

3. I had one when I realized there was a distributer, because it seems obvious that there is one, but I had thought that everything goes seperatly to the device.

4. I would tell them what devices I have in my house and what my internet service provider is.

DeRock, Online Identity

1. The video is also a activity. It plays through the boys day, in the boys day he is bullied both physically and by cyber bullies. In the video/activity you can watch it through and see how his day goes, by being bullied or you could click a purple eye that comes on the screen to make that moment of his day better.

2. It's a perfect representation of how bullying can affect someone. He was in pain and crying throughout the video and bullying need to be stopped.

3. I don't really use social media, so I appear as another random person on the internet.

4. People can't perceive who I am because I am unknown on the internet, the only things that comes up is a Facebook account that I don't use.

5. A internet trolls goal is to ruin people's life if they are on the internet, it's like in bad neighborhoods, you will get stared at because its not you area and in their eyes they think they own the internet.

6. A positive result of online anonymity is that people can't find out personal information about you, and a negative result is whatever people find when they look you up, they'll believe it's you.

a. When I search my name I find Facebook profiles that show up and then images of my close friends and my aunt show up.

b. I found that my SLA email comes up, but my family also shows up. 

c. This matters because it shows how the internet connects somehow to me in different ways 


2. Jayla Wright (personally doesn't show up)

Successful, competitions, YouTube, makeup, actress.

a. The five words that I was told somewhat describe me, mostly the One Direction part because that's a big part of my life, also my friends because my super close friends show up. 

b. One Direction, vintage, friends, SLA, Facebook.

1. In class we watched a video about a little boy who was being bullied.

2. This video makes me very upset that people around the world are being bullied and most of the time the witnesses don't speak up when it's such a simple thing to do.

3. I do not appear online at all, instead there are a lot of random women.

4. I think people don't really have any perception of me because they can't find me. They may think I am anti-social. The truth is that I never use my full name on the internet.

5. The goal of internet trolls is to disturb the peace and get negative attention.

6. The positive results of online anonymity are that people will not be able to see any bad things about you online, the negative results are that you may not learn from your mistakes if you're never caught.

Quarter 1 Senior Art

This quarter in senior art has been extremely fun. I am happy to say that I look forward to this class on days when I have it. Senior art is an outlet to let go of all my stress, and focus on creating something nice. We learn how to mix colors for different shades, to blend and create shadows, and we learn this independently, so it feeds out drive. 
This quarter we had multiple assignments: ceiling tile, drawing/painting, charcoal still life, jack-o-lantern/ bats, and a self portrait. We could do these projects at any time, as long as it was done by the end of the quarter. I started with the ceiling tile, then self portrait, jack-o-lantern, still life, then painting.I had two favorite pieces.  
My first favorite piece is my ceiling tile. In my tile, I painted the Drake Nothing Was The Same album cover on it. I worked the longest on this project, because it was hard for me to mix the skin, and there was a lot of blending with this painting. It took me about a month to finish it, and even though it is not perfect, it am very proud of the effort I put into this project. 
My second favorite piece is my jack-o-lantern. I did this project on the eve of Halloween with my six year old cousin. It was a fun bonding experience, and I think that I made my most interesting, and intricate pumpkin of my life so far. I decided to carve a big pumpkin eating a smaller pumpkin. When hanging out candy, a kid old me it was a pac man eating another pac man.

Who Am I Online?- Christina Santana

In class today we watched a video about the affects of bullying before and after it is prevented. Our class activity was pairing up with someone, and looking up their name on Google to see what we would find. What the video brought to mind for me was the realization on how common bullying can be for some people.  Online I am a tiny clothes wearing Hispanic dancer. I do not think people perceive me well based on this appearance because it is not professional. The goal of internet trolls is to bring down other for their personal enjoyment. In my opinion I think there are only cons to online anonymity useless someone is using it to post an honest review on a product, on food, etc.

  1. Today in class we watched the "I Am A Witness" video about bullying and how to help prevent by clicking the eye. 
  2. The video bring many things to my mind, for example, how bad people's feelings get hurt and how bullying can mostly be worse on the internet, especially when the bully is anonymous.
  3. When my name is searched online many school websites are found. Especially my middle school awards I have received for my science fair. So, online I am a student, which is correct. 
  4. Based on who I am online, people probably see me as hardworking and scientific. 
  5. The goal that internet trolls have are to bully someone online without getting caught. They are most likely to be anonymous, giving them more of a purpose to have fun and torture someone without being found. They mainly expose people and mess with their feelings for their own pleasure. 
  6. A positive thing about anonymity is you do not know who they are which makes things less hurtful, in a way because, if you find out who this online bully is, your feelings will be crushed and you'll have a hard time actually believing that person would do such a thing. A negative thing about anonymity is it will be harder to report them because they have a hidden identity online.

1. A video about a kid being bullied. It is an interactive video. That you can change the interactive video by interacting to make the situation better.

2. That it is horrible and can cause people to hurt themselves.

3. I'm not very social and don't have a huge life an the internet. 

4. That i'm not up with the trends.

5. To make fun of other people's suffering.

6. That people won't know who said the gossip but, it can hurt the people that the anonymous person are talking about.

Danny DeVito

Write an autobiographical post. You can write about yourself or assume the role of a famous person.

You must include:
  • a photo
  • an intro paragraph including name, age and origin
  • a paragraph about their physical characteristics and personality
  • a paragraph about their likes and dislikes
  • words from the "Más Palabras para Ti" page of your unit packet. BOLD THEM.
  • Close with a question. Your choice! You can ask the reader about their personality, about their likes/dislikes. You can ask if they like specific things (¿Te gusta...?). 

Soy Danny DeVito, tengo 70 años. Soy de New Jersey, pero vivo en Beverly Hills. 

Soy bajo, gordito, sociable, trabajador, y hablador. Además la gente dice que soy muy comico .

We watched the i am a witness video in class. The video was to show that you should always keep an eye out for bullying. You are just as bad as the bully if you dont help because no one deserves to be bullied. The eye emoji helps make situations better so always press the eye. The video makes me think that bullies on hurt people because they have been hurt themselves so they act out. I appear online as a teenager who has been through a lot even though i have only one picture of myself . I believe when people see me online they think im a good kid which i am and im just trying to find myself. Internet trolls purposely comment things to make you upset. Some positve things about online anonymity is that you can say what you want and ¨get away with it¨. A negative thing about it is that no one is actually anonymous online there is always a way to find you.

Q1 Art Slideshow

My experience with art is very vague. I usually don’t have a particular reason to draw what I draw. So with that in mind, as an expression of myself, I like to keep things simple most of the time.

Everything you will see in this slide-show was drawn either with simply a pencil or a brush. There’s no special techniques that need to be known, my artist-progress if very much just drawing whatever comes to mind, and if that usually doesn’t require anything too complex.

None of this means I don’t think much of my art. The problem is simply that I’m not very good at it, which means my ability to bring what I draw to life is severely limited.  Everything you will see in this slideshow is best, more sincere effort, and even if it doesn’t look like it, I put a lot of myself into almost all of these works, one way or another. It’s why many of them are so vague, they only mean something to me. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing, I haven’t decided yet.

Who am I online

1. The video that we watched in class was about a boy who was being bullied in school and cyber bullied at home. In this video we had to click the Eye (I am a witness) to help the boy.

2. Bullying should be stopped because if it isn’t it only gets worse. 

3. When I search my name nothing comes up.

4. Nothing comes up.

5. Their goal is to bother people and hurt their feelings because they think it’s funny.

6. Positive results are that you can say whatever you want. Negative is that you think you can get away with it, and that you can’t be tracked but you can.
