Frame Analysis

SS Reflection Post

1. One reason why race changes what I think about myself and others  is because of the stereo types we have heard from people that influence you.

2. Personally I do not agree to racist stereotypes and I prefer to treat people equally but if someone were racist and believed in those stereotypes they might go as far as eliminating a race (much like Hitler) and alienating them.

Tuff Times

I don’t think that the socs and the greasers are that different because
– they both see the differences in each other (money vs feelings)
– Each side is jelouse of the other
– People from each side drink, smoke, attack,

one connection between the Dally and the guy in the blue mustang is that they both hurt people from each other sides.


Jonny killed bob to help ponyboy

I think that insted of runnning away they could have just burned the body got rid of the ashes then washed away the blood (people will think the blood is from a fight) as for the witnesses they were so drunk that they probably thought they were hallucinating.

Iit is just his way of saying nothing good lasts

I think jonny has experience beacuse he was so calm being around dally


Cherry the soc is witty-er and makes sarcastic remarks therefore she caress about her reputation and acts like she doesn’t have feelings much like how she described the socs. Cherry the dreamer is very deep and understands that the greasers are the same as the socs (“I could love dallas”).

I think Jonny and Ponyboy are hero’s beacuse they saved the kids and they were only defending themselves when Jonny murderd bob but dally only came in to save Jonny and Jonny is the only one that he cares about so…

We knw that Darry cares  about Ponyboy because he was very sorry and he really didn’t mean to hurt Ponyboy and he was just worried that he was going to loose him.


1.When Cherry says “I could love dallas” I think she means that she could fall in love with a greaser. pg 46

2. I think that when he relized that Cherry had green eyes he realized

– socs and greasers were the same

– that green eyes are beutuful



the test taking portion was not very good I did not get the grades that I wanted But I am glad that I got some new test taking strategies and note taking strategies.
I was extremely happy with my PSA video I thought that I could show how devastating it is for people who are gay and have been misunderstood and have been treated wrong.
If I could re-do the Civics unit I would have used my new study strategies in the begging.

Study strategies that worked:
– colourful notes
– crossing out options in multiple choice

Study strategies that worked:
– taking notes on computer

I will use:
– coloured notes
– key notes
– 5 day study plan

I hope you know what you can improve. Contact me if you want some help with strategies to improve.” I think that is most like my learning and I hope to improve it.

4. The stratagy that did not work for me was the flash cards I think the flash cards didn’t help because they where difficult to organize.

5. But I think that the next uint I will make a keynote because in 6th grade that stratigy worked for me in SS.




Hong Kong protests.

I think that it is unfair for the people of Hong Kong (us) to vote for someone the Chinese government choose for us. I we do end up voting for the restricted people to lead us then it will not be a democracy. If the protesters have their way  then the people of hong Kong get a leader that will “defentiVGTsV_3sTY4 the interests of Hong Kong and would also be able to work with Beijing”. I agree with the quote for the BBC news article Hong Kong Protests: Did china go back on it’s promise because this shows the main goal of what I personally think this what the goal is of the Hong Kong protesters to have a say on how they (we) want to be lead.


Active and Passive voice:

A active voice is when a subject is before a verb:

   “Alex ate food.”

A Passive voice is when the verb is before the subject:

   “The food was eaten by Alex.”

Always try and use the Active voice!

Punctuating dialogue

Quotation marks: Quotation marks need to be around what is said (as well as the punctuation such as !?).

“Alex is awesome,” said the Queen of Awesomeness.

 “So true!” said everyone in the entire universe.

Interrupted speech:  This is hard to explain so I will only give an example.

 “And the new queen of Awesome-topia goes to,”  Ellen Degeneres paused as the drumbeat rolled,  “Alexandra Swanson Bell!

 Having a space for each dialogue:  You can see who is talking by where the parentheses are and what was stated in the last couple of sentences.

“May just say Alex it is amazing to meet you!”

“Oh my gosh Ellen this is like my dream right here thank you!”

“Can I have a selfie with you!”

” No can I have a selfie with you! Yeah sure!”


I will find different words to use in my writing. The way I will do this is by finding one new word every three days and I will use that word in casual conversation. (I will also write all my words on the word wall.)

I will read new books and bold them on my reading log.  I will have two new books out of every five books that I read.

For the past couple of weeks we have been brain storming our personal narratives in our journals. Them using a organizer (Personal Narrative Planner 2014) with this organizer we can make our story flow (aka organize which moment should we add detail who is the character ect. ect.).
