Stand and Deliver

Stand and Delivercwas about a class in Garfield High School in Los Angeles, California with a new teacher named Jaime Escalante. Origanly he was suppost to teach on the computers but the school didn't have any computers so he taught math instead. All the kids had no interrest in learning but he made it a little bit more interresting so the students paid attention to him. the students took the AP calculus test and they got the same answers so they taught they cheated. So they took the test again and they all past with defferint scores. Jaime made a difference because over the years he had more students passing.

The Big Test

I'm sort of excited about the TAKS but I think i'm not going to pass it. I wan't to get it over with all ready. After TAKS i'm going to just watch TV all day. I think TAKS is a waste of time because any randome lazy kid would gess on almost all of them and pass the TAKS. Soi thats what I think about TAKS.

Ipads For Kids

I think having a Ipad is great for little kids because they might not pay attention in class with a five hundred page book in front of their desk. I wouldn't really pay attention to a teacher reading all day. Also if all the schools had a Ipad they would cut less trees in the world. Also if they lose their book they wouldn't learn any thing in class that day. But the Ipad is in the class room with all the class subject. A disadvanteg is that they would get addected to the Ipad and wouldn't listen to the teacher.

    Game Ideas

    I was playing on cool math. There was a game called civil balls 2. In the game it kept track of your score. I'm trying to learn how to do that. Then there was this game called primate pile up that I played and you had to pile up. It was sort of like drag and drop, I'm trying to do that to.

    Game Progress Refliction

    What I learned to do in flash was that I know how to make buttons, make stuff move right, left, up and down. I did a drawing that had a jelly fish, trash, and a turtle. The biggest challenge for this week was drag and drop. I'm proud of what I've done because I did my best work. Drag and drop has been frustrated because we are still trying to do it.

    President Obama

    TechBoston sounds like a really smart school by the way the percent kids pass the test. I think President Obama should come to this school because this school is mainly focused on getting you to pass the Task test. Obama should come and visit the school and the cool teachers and students. This school is really good for preparing kids to go to college.

    Blogging About Blogging

    What I would do is I would go on a strike with a couple of people outside the building. If i got suspended I would have got a lot of peoples signatures to have a big meting about bringing blogger back. A reason why blogging is good is that it can help you on your spelling and stuff like that. A disadvantage is you will probably get bord doing blogger non-stop. I'm not saying blogging is boring I just mean when you are out of ideas to write about it's kinda write in blogger.

    The Blind Side

    We watched the Blind Side on Wednesday and on Thursday. It started of with review of the Redskins vs Titans. The Redskins were doing a play called the flee flicker. When the QB got the ball  they tackled  him from the back and at the same time from the front. He twisted his leg.  Michael's friend took Michael to a rich private school. He told the coach that Michael was good at any sports but the coach didn't really beleive him. Until Micheal was playing basketball with his friend. The coach tried to convince the other teachers to let him in the school. I only saw the end I didn't see the middle. At the end he gets a scholarship. They ask him if he does want to go Ole Miss. The lady ask'ing those questions told him that Leigh Ann Tuchy wanted him to go to Ole Miss since the beggining. At the very end he does go to Ole Miss.
