Ali and Aaron's Abstract on Photosynthesis

         

    The presentation that me and my group did was about photosynthesis. We did this to teach our fellow classmates about photosynthesis. We wanted to learn about how photosynthesis was important to life, as well as it’s process. As a group, we did learn a lot. We learned that photosynthesis is essential to whether or not a plant survives or not. During this process, we grew better as a group and really feel like we gained a lot from this unit. If we could some things next time, our team will have better communication with each other, as well as better time management. We did well in this, but there is always room for improvement.

Photosynthesis

For this unit, we had to learn about photosynthesis or respiration, then teach our learning to our class mates. My group’s topic was photosynthesis. We started our research by watching two videos shown to us in class to give us a starting point to build on. Then, we did some research online and in a textbook to gain an even deeper understanding of photosynthesis. We then put together everything we learned in a Google Presentation to use when we taught our class mates about what we had learned.

Like with every project, there were some things our group did well and some things we could improve for the next project. I think our presentation has a clear flow and is visually pleasing to the eye. We also included information that many other photosynthesis groups did not. We could have used our class time more efficiently. If we used class time to collaborate more than we had, I think we could have gone above and beyond for this project.

Photosynthesis Presentation

For the past week our group has been working on a powerpoint presentation on photosynthesis. In this project our goal was to inform about basic information because many people don’t know what photosynthesis really is. We, as a group, wanted to learn, through photosynthesis, how sugar is produced and more on it’s organelle system. One of the most important things that we learned was how photosynthesis makes not only energy but, oxygen too. Next time we will do more research and have a better take on what we are learning about.

Mujer que empujó a su esposo por un acantilado se declara culpable de homicidio

Este artículo es sobre un mujer quien empujó a su esposo fuera de un acantilado en Montana. Este es muy mal porque esto sucedió días después de sus boda. ¿Por qué querría hacer que? Algunas personas están locas. El artículo dice que “los fiscales dijeron que Graham, de 21 años, estaba teniendo dudas sobre su matrimonio antes de la muerte de su esposo y mintió deliberadamente a la policía.” Pero tristemente ella, Graham presuntamente mató a Cody Johnson su esposo. Ella debería haber abandonado él. Ellos dijeron que su esposo desapareció el 7 de julio. Ella mintió a los investigadores. Pero en el artículo ‘un agente del FBI dijo que cambió su historia cuando le mostraron una foto de una cámara de seguridad en la que aparecen los dos entrando al parque juntos’. Me pregunto si extraña a su marido. Yo no tengo el corazón a empujó a mi esposo fuera de un acantilado. ¿Tiene ella un corazón? Yo espero que ella aprendió su error. Que era su esposa! Su alma gemela! Ella le prometió su eternidad! Ella rompió esa promesa por su muerte. Yo todavía no entiendo por qué ella hizo eso. Yo espero que su familia está bien. Soy Feliz que ellos saben la verdad.

Q2 Reflection #2: Una vacuna contra el Alzheimer se ensayará en pacientes después de Navidad

Este artículo es sobre una vacuna contra el Alzheimer que es se probará en el primer paciente después de Navidad.  El artículo dije, La vacuna y un nuevo test en sangre para diagnosticar la enfermedad han sido desarrollados por la empresa Araclon Biotech, que cuenta con la colaboración de la Fundación ACE (Alzheimer Centre Educacional) de Barcelona.”  También, el artículo dije, “El doctor de Araclon Biotech Manuel Sarasa ha explicado que la vacuna se ha probado en animales y se pinchará al primer paciente después de Navidad.” 
Yo pienso está bueno encontrar una cura para el Alzheimer, pero yo no estoy de acuerdo con uso en animales. El Alzheimer es un difícil enfermedad tratar. Yo pienso está impresionante que ellos encontrado una cura para Alzheimer, pero ellos no debería uso en animales. Me encanta animales, yo no pienso animales que merece. El artículo dije,  “Actualmente, hay más de 500.000 pacientes con Alzheimer en España, una enfermedad que a menudo se diagnostica en estados tardíos, lo que hace necesario un medio para detectarla antes y un tratamiento que evite sus consecuencias, tal y como ha señalado el responsable de productos biológicos de Grifols, Javier Jorba.”  Yo espera una cure que funcione.

Photosynthesis

Hey, my name is Fodie. I worked with 3 other students in Team 6, and this is our presentation about the system commonly known as photosynthesis. We cover all of the topics about photosynthesis, including the function, cycle, and equation. Before learning about photosynthesis, The group thought that only plants used this process but after researching photosynthesis, it was found that bacteria and protists also use it. Next project we will make a bigger effort to research and divide tasks evenly between everyone.

Respiration Presentation

This is our presentation on Cellular Respiration

What we wanted to learn was how respiration worked, what cycle it uses, what produces energy during cellular respiration.One important thing that we learned was that cellular respiration with oxygen and without oxygen result in different thing. Cellular respiration with oxygen or lack of oxygen results in fermentation that becomes ethanol or lactic acid.When enough oxygen is present the krebs cycle take place. One thing we would change would be to add a voice over to the slides, we think it would have added a nice touch to the presentation.

Respiration

In Bio-Chem we learned about respiration and photosynthesis.  After we learned everything we got into groups of four and we picked a paper out of a beaker.  The paper either said photosynthesis or respiration and our mission was to make a presentation about that.  My group got respiration.  While on this unit we learned about the different functions of respiration and our slides shows our learning.  One thing that I learned that I didn't know before was that all most all living creatures use respiration.We  also learned about the equation of respiration and the mitochondria which is where respiration happens.  We also learned about glucose.  If I was to change one thing about our slide is that I wish I could put audio over my presentation.  I could not figure out a way to do that.

Hunger

13

Hey, my name is Fodie Camara. My topic is hunger. I choose this topic of hunger because I want to know all about hunger and how it affects people in differents ways. When I learn it, I want to tell people and try to stop hunger. I will spread the information around to teach people about hunger and many different.

We have many different groups in Philadelphia to stop hunger or support food to programs. We have Stop Hunger Now, Coalition against Hunger,  Philabundance. They all have one motto, is to stop hunger and feed people who don’t have enough meals in Philadelphia. They try their best to help people without food or in some type in trouble.

Stop Hunger Now works with international partners that ship and gives meals in country.

Volunteers come and package the meals. They serve 70% of its meals to provide programs such as school feeding programs, vocational training programs, early childhood development programs, orphanages, and medical clinics. Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger program that has been promised to stop hunger for more than 15 years. They working with school and after school programs will try to stop poverty.

Philabundance was created in 1984. Philabundance works with families hit hard by the recession. They work with seniors trying to make ends meet and they are the largest hunger group in Philadelphia. They are now able to address hunger through direct service such as food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, and many more. Philabundance has take hunger really serious in Delaware Valley. They use Food donations, and the community. Philabundance helps 72,000 people per week.

People are hunger because of many different reasons. Like 5 billion in benefits cut in food stamps. Having no money can’t buy you food, so how else are people going to eat. If they don’t have no money and food stamps benefits are getting cut, how else suppose to get feed. There are even more cuts coming like, the house wants to take 40 billion dollars over the next 10 years. So they want to take even more money from benefits each year. So that is going to create even more hunger people in Philadelphia. There are a lot of effects of being hunger or not having one meal. Some effects are hunger people get sick a lot, have a chance to repeat the same grade, get horrible grades, and many more things.

Lastly, I really choose this topic of hunger because I want to know all about hunger and how it affects people in different ways. I want to get this information stuck in my brain, and teach other people about it. Feeling good about my self spreading an important topic in my school. We have so many different groups and programs to stop hunger, so we can do it. Believe in our self and we don’t have to see the pain people go when they are hunger.

Photosynthesis

Welcome! My name is Kiamesso DaSilva, and in my Bio-Chem class, we are learning about Respiration and Photosynthesis. We split up into groups where we "specialized" in either Photosynthesis or Respiration. In those groups we used what we learned to make presentations that could teach others in the class and now the general public. Our group chose to use a Prezi format, and we included the link to our Prezi below:

9th Grade English Launches You and the World!

Red and Orange 9th grade English students have begun their You and the World projects!  This year-long project asks students to take an interest in local, national, or international issues that they are willing to learn more about. They develop a passion for research, relay that knowledge and passion to others, and seek to educate themselves and those around them via public writing and a service component. 

Fueled by essential questions like, Why is this world issue important to me? How can I be a global citizen? How can change occur?, students will become "agents of change" for their issues in the Spring when they choose to do volunteer work, perform a civic action, or spread awareness through presentations and activities in our school community (including The Franklin Institute).

Students craft a series of blogs about their experiences going through the You and the World process. Please click on Red Stream  Orange Stream to read and comment on their first round posts. They would love to hear from you!!
