My Booktube

In Writing and Oral for the closure of our term test, we has to create a booktube on our lending library.

This is the booktube I created:

Reviews I found:

Mariana MaidouDonna Leon is not an Agatha Christi’s style writer. You won’t find an explanation at the end by the great detective to the crowd of innocents and guilties. It has got allusive style.

Pat Hansbury: I’ve read at least a half dozen of her books. They are so specific to Venice – naming restaurants, streets, vaporetti, etc. If you know the city, you can picture exactly where he is. The main character of her books is not Brunetti, but Venice itself.

Katy: I have now read six of these mysteries. They are among the finest mystery novels I have ever read, sparkling with intelligence as well as a sensitive understanding of human nature.

1AC2015: Repasamos El Recorrido

En clase de tecnología, con Mariana Massiggoge, estamos realizando un proyecto en el cual creamos un nuevo snack saludable. La actividad de hoy fue escribir el relato del recorrido de este preciso proyecto. Este fue el relato que cree.

Recorrido Del Proyecto:

Este año en tecnología comenzamos a investigar al principio que eran los procesos industriales, nos separamos en grupos (5) y comenzamos a investigar. Todos comenzamos a tomar cada vez mas interés en este nuevo proyecto. Cuando ya habiamos terminado de conocer todo lo posible sobre los procesos industriales, cada grupo creo una presentacion sobre que rubro iba a representar en un nuevo proyecto “Snack Saludables”, todos nos emocionamos al conocer sobre este nuevo proyecto vinculado al anterior y comenzamos a trabajar con todas nuestras pilas.

Los rubros fueron: textiles, construcción, alimentos, equipamiento y servicio. El grupo de textil se organizó y comenzó a trabajar con los delantales para la gente que estaría en el stand vendiendo. El grupo de construccion planifico el stand en el cual se vendería el producto (el snack saludable). El grupo de Alimentos, en el cual yo participo, se organizó para crear un nuevo snack saludable y el que creo fue frutas deshidratadas. El grupo de equipamiento fue el encargado de crear la maquina que deshidrataria. Y finalmente el grupo de servicio creó una pagina en la cual darán consejos de como aprovechar a pleno las frutas.

Los momentos que mas me gustaron de este proyecto son, haber podido hacer una presentacion sobre que sería lo que me gustaría hacer y haber podido lograr el que nos gustaba (alimentos), haber creado maquetas y que cada vez hay mas cosas nuevas por ver e investigar en este proyecto, es más, descubrí, al investigar, que hay una maquina solar para disecar frutas, tambien que las frutas deshidratadas pueden ser conservadas por más tiempo que una fruta normal y conservan de la misma manera los nutrientes que cada fruta contiene. De todas maneras hay muchas veces que cosas me traban, hay veces que no encuentro la información que necesito y no puedo continuar con otros pasos, por asi decir, y me quedo trabada, claro que siempre me interesa resolverlo para poder seguir adelante.

Para poder seguir adelante descartaría la inseguridad de que todo me sale mal. Y fialmente me parece que el cierre e este proyecto debería ser importante, es la primera vez que realizamos un proyecto tan grande e interesante de todos, y me gustaría poder cerrarlo de una manera en la cual todos podrían decidir si les gusto o no el proyecto. Tanto los profesores, si les gusto o no el proyecto y haber trabajado con nosotros, los alumnos que creamos este proyecto, si nos gusto haberlo hecho, y los que nos compren el producto si esta bueno.

Lo que me gusta es que todos participamos y nos prendamos con este proyecto porque es algo que estamos aprendiendo a hacer en equipo y

 

 

 

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:
