Learning habits

Respectful – consistently,  I gave me consistently because  I think I am respectful in my learning also to my friends and teacher.

Responsible- consistently, I gave me consistently because I come prepared to class. Also I do my work on time.

Perseverance – usually, I gave me usually because I think am giving my best effort in my project usually

Collaborative – consistently because in science when i do group project, I work with them well and I have been improved in this category 

Stairing at AES

Rank the three staircases in order, least steep to the steepest. Show your thinking, identify what information that was used to come up with your conclusion, and to relate/support the information for all the staircases.

Art staircase ,2nd floor end of the hallway stair, Highschool garden staircase 

Art stair case goes constantly by height 14.5 and length 39.5 but 2nd floor staircase is going constantly by height 15 and length 29.5  and lastly Highschool garden staircase is going constant by height 15 and length 15.7 so I choose the order this way.

 Reflections on my English language learning: Writing

What are you proud of with your writing right now? What are you proud that you can do as a writer?

 I’m proud that I am using more technical word, because in my first writing I think I didn’t use any of the technical words. Also, I am proud of my strong support I wrote for my claim, because there wasn’t any strong detail in my writing. And I have much organized paragraph than before. 

Now, compare an early piece of writing to a recent piece of writing. What do you notice about how your writing has changed in three areas: 

I think my writing has changed in vocabulary, strong support, and grammar. I have changed in my vocabulary by not many of the misspelling. Also, I have a strong support in my geography writing that I am writing these days. And I correct my grammar after I write and I check if this words fits into this sentence. 



If you had to pick one area of writing (Linguistic Complexity, Vocabulary Usage or Language Control) that you think you have improved on the most this quarter, what would it be? What makes you say this? 

I think I have improved in Linguistic Complexity. Because, I check after I am done with my writing, if it is well organized and clear to read. Also, in my geography project I have been using strong evidence that support my claim for example, using statistic, and the fact that is given in the book.

What area of writing (Linguistic Complexity, Vocabulary Usage or Language Control) would like to work on at this point?

I want to work on Language Control. Because I have many mistakes in my grammar. Also, I forget to use transitional words to connect the idea or start the new idea.

Reflections on my English language learning : Reading


  How many books have you read this quarter? What genre were they? What reading level were they? 

I have finished my first book and I started the new book yesterday. The first one was romance and now I am reading is realistic fiction. The reading level is just right for me.
What has been your favorite book that you have read so far this year? Why? 

My favorite book that I have read so far is ‘Me before you’, because it was the first time I read a romance book and it was fun but also a sad book and I like how the author really expressed really well of the character’s emotion.


How have you used your reading response log to write about your thinking about reading? 

     I have been summarizing the story what I read that day and wrote my feeling about the story what I read.

Copy and paste a sample of your first and most recent reading response entry below. Now, please compare them. What are you doing now with your responses that you were not doing before? 

First entry

Recent entry

I think it came more specific and more inferences and expressing my feelings.
What are some close reading strategies do you use when you read? How do they help you? What other classes can you use these strategies in? Give a specific example. 

Searching for the word that I don’t know. This helps me to build up more vocabulary to me, because if I don’t know the words and just skip it, I wouldn’t know if that word comes out again. Also, this strategies can help in science class about the term that I use in the unit.

What are you proud of with your reading? 

By the strategies that I used made me know more words. So I am proud of building new vocabulary words.        

What do you think you need to work on with your reading next semester? (be specific; give an example if you can): 

Note taking. Because I am not really doing enough of taking notes during the reading. For example when I note take I can express my feeling well and it could be easier to understand the book. So I want to work in that section.
