The Prision by Bernard Malamud

In our last classes of Litearature, with our teacher Pato Chujman, we started reading a short story called “The Prision” by Bernard Malamud.

First: We searched on the internet about the writer (Bernard).

Second: We analysed the story all together while reading it and when we finished reading it.

Here is the presentation:

The Paris Peace Conference and The treaty of Versallies

Our History teacher, Lenny, gave us some work to do on the blog. If you want to see the asignment you can click here. The asignment was on The Paris Peace Conference and The Treaty of Versallies.

This was the video we had to analyse and then asnwer the questions below:

  • War guilt.Explain the arguments FOR and AGAINST this term.

AGAINST: Germany caused evertything, she is to blame when it comes to war. the war started because of her. She  was in almost all short and long term causes involved.

FOR: It is true that Germany caused a lot of trouble in war. But she was not the one who started it. For example Austria-Hungary was the first one to declare war (to Serbia).

  • Which term followed War Guilt? How much would it be today? What consequences/impact did it have on Germany?

The term that followed War Guilt, was Reparations. Now the reaprations are 400.000 millions. Germany was super impacted, because as the US was with the triple entente they had a lot of suport economically speaking and Germnay had to spend a lot of money with supplies to use in war. And also Germany, as she was the loser, had to pay a lot of money to the allies (the triple Entente).

  • Why were the victors planning to prevent a future war with Germany in the Treaty?

The treaty was signed to prevent another invasion with Germany because they knew that if Germany had won she would had taken away everything that the allies took away from her during war and maybe more.

  • What territorial losses did Germany have to face? What happened to the German colonies? What did Wilson dislike about this?

Germany had to face the losses of: Poland, Alsace-Lorraine and her colonies and Wilson disliked the distribution of the territory of Germany.

  • Which new nations were created after WW1?

The new nations formed before ww1 were Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. And also there were some new nations after the Russian fell.

EXTENTION WORK:

This is the voicethread that i did with Silvestre and Ines.

This is our dialogue writen.

 

This are some Questions that our history teacher asked us to answer:

  • Did you feel you learnt more than if you had studied this from the book?

Yes, because as we had to create first the dialogue, then check the mistakes in the drive and finally record it in VoiceThread, we read it and said it to many times, the times necesary to learn them perfectly.

  • What did you personally enjoy about the project?

What I enjoyed about the project is that it was different, we did had fun, and it was easy to learn the content in it.

  • What would you change from this project if  the class from Senior 1 next year were going to do it again?

I might have changed the groups, because it would be more confortable to work with someone you get very good along. But is also a bit difficult because we have to, also, learn how to work with other people and not always the same ones.

 

This were the groups and what we had to do.

Sintaxis y Escritura

Nuestra maestra Carol, de lengua, nos dejo una actividad para hacer en un su blog. Yo hice la actividad con Jeronimo Leguizamon.

  • ¿Por qué el inspector Fernández tenía tantas dudas acerca de este caso? ¿Qué problema tenía con la prueba de las preguntas?

El inspector Fernandez tenía tantas dudas acerca de este caso, porque la señorita Coatrí tenía la manía cuatripartita. Entonces el problema con las preguntas era la evidencia. evidencia: (que nosotros sospechamos)

-Solo pasaron 3 noches

-Eran solamente 3 gatos

Finalmente llegamos a la conclusion de que lo ocurrido no fue culpa de la señorita coatrí por su manía cuatripartita.

  • ¿Pueden explicar, con lujo de detalles gramaticales, la admirable deducción del modesto señor Estívenson? Revisen nuevamente el alegato del señor Popolino y, aplicando la prueba de la reducción a las tres oraciones, señalen qué oraciones son la clave de la inocencia de la señorita Coatrí y expliquen por qué. No olviden la manía cuatripartita de la señorita Coatrí.

Lo que hizo el señor Estivenson, fue revisar las evidencias. En la casa del señor acusador, el señor Estívenson vio que los gatos estaban vivos, y dormidos debajo de la cama del señor Popolino. Tambien vio que la señirita Coatrí era una mujer con una manía cuaripartita.

las oraciones claves son:

Oraciones antes de ser reducidas:

– A partir de este momento la peor desgracia de este mundo son estos gatos sucios y ruidosos.

 

-Muy pronto yo saltaré muy terrorificamente sobre ustedes

– Esta noche yo cosere un lindo almohadón de piel de gato.

 

Oraciones luego de ser reducidas:

-Ahora así son ellos
