Thesis of My Documentary

The social issue that I am addressing is fast food and obesity.

The message of this issue is to stop eating fast food.
Fast food is very unhealthy and can cause serious health problems like Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, Liver problems, heart disease, digestive problems, and more.
Eating fast food everyday can cause you to have a over size weight.
Also we shouldn't have fast food restaurants next to school because students that eat fast food everyday can cause many things to there bodies too and they can become real fat and over weighted.

Social Issues: Fast Food


I agree with what the story is saying about eating fast food. I believe that everyone that eat fast food regularly should stop eating it now. From reading this story I learned that if you constantly keep on eating fast food every single day you may catch serious health problems like Diabetes, Hypertension, High cholesterol, Digestive problems, Liver problems, or a Heart disease.
Also you can become real fat like a over size weight.

In my documentary I'm going to take pictures of fast food and talk to different people and do much more.

Reflection on Types of Media

The unique thing of a newspaper is that you can read many interesting things that happens in every day life. In a newspaper you can find things like crimes,entertaining,sports,business and many more things. I learned that newspapers are most often published on a daily or weekly basis, and they usually focus on one particular geographic area where most of their readers live.

Introducing Documentaries-Storm

To make this document the students had to act out a real story that really happened in real life about bullying. These students had to remember the words, they had to be good actors and act out parts to make it seem real like it was happening.

In this documentaries the elements that was used was acting,speaking,they showed the inside and outside of different places, black and white,color,music,and words.

The most powerful part in this document was at the end the part when Joe killed himself maybe because he couldn't take the bullying no more.

If I was to make this document of bullying I would of did more acting in it. Also I would of made it longer and I would of made the parents as different people and have the parents act a different way.

When I have a response on documentaries it is different from a response on a book or newspaper because when you read something in a book or a newspaper people somethings add things to the story but a document of something tells the truth and you can see that.

The Color Purple Response

There is this main situation that happens through out the whole story.
Mr____ treat Celie like a slave and that it not fair.
When Mr___ tell Celia what to do she really listen to everything he tells her to do.
She don't really do nothing about, she just sits there and be treated that way.

If I was in Celia position right now I wouldn't let some stupid old sorry man treat me that way.
I would of waited to Mr.___ sleep and killed him then maybe I would of ran away.
Thats what I would of did or if I don't do that I would not listen to him and if I don't listen to him and he hit me I am going to hit him back or call the cops.

Book Clubs Authors Voice

If this book The Color Purple had a voice I would describe the voice as being brave and being strong.
I think that Keyshia Cole would be most ideal or this novel if an audio book was produced because Keyshia Cole have this kind of voice that can sound soft but a voice that sounds like a person that trying to be so strong.

" Hey wait up" Davina said while running up to Nakia.

"I'm Having a party this Friday and I want to know If you want to come"? Davina said

"Yea I'll come, that will be great " Nakia response in a happy voice

Davina was having her party in that huge haunted house on killer street were everyone was scared to walk next to. The house had spider webs all over it.The front yard looked like it was a war happening and in the back yard was this scary creepy dark grave yard.

Davina was happy she was having a party especially when she was playing a big trick on Nakia.
Last year Nakia made Davina eat chocolate knowing that Davina gets bumps all over her body.
Now Davina is trying to get revenge to get back at Nakia knowing that Nakia is scared of spiders and

The Color Purple Book Club Response 3

Dear Dairy,

My Name is Celia. I hate my life. I always have to clean this and that, and I'm always getting beat.
Should I run away or should I stay?
I can't take this anymore. I don't deserve to live like this. I wish my mom was still here.
I hope nothing happens to my sister.
She is really all I got.
I love my sister so much. How can all this madness stop?
I wish I was never Mr.___ wife.
He is not a good husband. He make me do everything around the house.
He beats me and the kids all the time, but he beats me the most.
It can be so hot outside and he will make me and the kids do everything.By the end of the day we are pitch black.
I'm thinking that should I kill him or should I run away?

While Reading this book I can predict that many bad things is going to happen.
The main character in this story is Celia.
She have been raped ,beating up and been treated wrong.
Her Father is mean and is a disgrace to the world. He have been beating on almost every member in Celia family.

So Far I can related to my friend.

She was in the room by her self. Then like a hour later her mother boyfriend came in the room and started to beat her, then he put his thing in her private part and raped her. She scream and tryed to get him off of her. All he did was hurt her a lot and choked her real hard.

Still I rise by

The theme of this poem is to never let anyone bring you down.
The clues in this poem that describes this theme is when she said"Did you want to see me broken?Bowed head and lowered eyes?Shoulders falling down like teardrops.Weakened by my soulful cries.Also in the poem she says"you may shoot me with your words,You may cut me with your eyes,You may kill me with your hatefulness,But still, like air, I'll rise. These clues in this wonderful written poem describes the theme of this poem.

This message of the poem applies to my life and many ways.One way is sometimes people always try to put me down but they can't .If they do put me down I would always rise back up.Also I can connect to another poem that I've read, The name of this poem is I ,Too,is America.
This poem connects to the other poem because they both having like the same theme, never giving giving up, and never let anyone bring you down.

Hyperbole of My Dog

While I was reading this poem I found many examples of hyperbole.
One example that I found in this poem was"Little girl is my dog.
To me this person is trying to explain that the little girl acts like a dog and this person is saying that the little girl is wild like a dog. Another example I found was"When she sees food her eyes starts to spend. This person is trying to explain that this little girl loves food and the girl must of been very hungry so when she saw the food her eyes must have popped out.

I think that the author use hyperbole in the poem this way because he/she might of wanted people to see what he/she mean about the little as being a dog

A Poem called My life

My life is ruined
My life is wrecked
My life is in danger
My life is a threat.

My life can't go on
My life is a disaster
My life is like trash
It's like I don't matter.
