Edgar Allan Poe biography

EAP was born in USA in 1809 and died in 1849. He was a writer, critic, poet and romantic periodist. He is better known for his uncanny poems and short stories, most usually about crimes, as well as one of the most famous figures of romanticism.
Poe’s parents were both actors, but he never had a chance to talk to them. Even though it was a healthy relationship, Poe’s father left them, and her mother died when he was 3.

After being separated from his brother and sister, Poe went to live with John and Frances Valentine, a successful tobacco merchant and his wife. Even though his father wanted him to continue the family business, Poe wrote poems.

In 1826, EAP entered the university of Virginia, where he was top of the class, but John didn’t fund him. In the search for money to pay debts, he started gambling, where he lost almost everything. When he got home, his fianceé Sarah Elmira Royster had gotten engaged to someone else, so he moved to Boston to start over.

In 1827 he published his first book and joined the army. After two years he found that his adopted mother was dying. Sadly, by the time he returned, she had already died of tuberculosis. He bonded with John Allan again, who helped him get into the West Point’s military academy.

After 1 year he was kicked out for not doing his duties on time, and there started his career.

Poe struggled with poverty until one of his short stories won a contest. 2 years later he got a deal with an editorial and made a living.

Cápsula del tiempo

Cápsula del tiempo

Este año vamos a hacer una cápsula del tiempo que vamos a abrir en 10 años. Esta es nuestra idea para poner en la caja (trabajé con Toto, Marco y Fermín)

Entrevista a uno mismo en forma de video

Ej: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFGAQrEUaeU

  • ¿Dónde los guardaríamos?

En una cuenta de google drive – Le pediríamos a alguien que no participe en el proyecto que cree una cuenta de Google. Solo esa persona sabría la contraseña y el mail de la cuenta y anotaría los datos en un papel que iría a la cápsula del tiempo.

  • ¿Como haríamos los videos?

Nos filmaríamos haciendo preguntas y esperaríamos en silencio el tiempo que creamos necesario para que nuestro yo futuro responda.

  • ¿Como le mandamos los videos?
    Se los mandaríamos a su cuenta personal y esa persona lo mandaría a la nueva cuenta.

    • ¿Como nos afectaría en el futuro?

    Entenderíamos como pensabamos el pasado además de que a través de preguntas recordaríamos nuestros objetivos e ideales.

    • ¿Como está conectado a la materia?

    Deberíamos usar conjugaciones poco usuales ya que hablaríamos de un futuro en el que hablamos del pasado. Además practicaríamos hacer entrevistas.

La odisea: consigna de escritura creativa

La odisea: consigna de escritura creativa

2)Ulises había partido a Troya cuando su pequeño era tan solo un niño. Telémaco se había criado sin palabras de su padre, sin sus consejos, sin poder hablar con él. Por eso tenía mucho para decirle y contarle, mucho para preguntarle, y decidió escribirle una carta. CONSIGNA: imaginar y escribir una posible carta de Telémaco a Ulises.

Querido Padre,

No se si esta carta llegará a tus manos, pero soñar es gratis.

No tengo recuerdos de tí, Padre, pero he escuchado historias, lo que es suficiente para extrañarte.

Madre también te extraña, y al igual que yo, cree que sigues vivo. Pero no todos piensan eso. Muchos creen que moriste, y reclaman el amor de tu esposa, pero ella no cae.

Lo que hace ahora es tejer un abrigo todos los días, prometiendo que cuando termine, tomará a uno de sus pretendientes como su amado. Lo que ellos no saben es que los desteje a la noche.

Para terminar, te quiero decir que tanto yo como Penélope y como el pueblo, realmente te extrañamos y esperamos tu vuelta a casa con ansias.

Tu hijo,

Telémaco

Variation and Selection ( with Juan Pablo Uva)

We were asked by our biology teacher to, in pairs, watch the videos about variation and selection on her blog(http://cadem.cumbresblogs.com/) and answer the following questions;

1)What did I learn today / Question it

  • Variation is caused by the random mixing of the parents’ genes in the offspring.
  • The color of the fur is a variation.
  • Some animals are benefited by this so they can camouflage.
  • Variation might be caused or affected by the environment.
  • Two identical twins might grow up to be different if raised in different environments

2)Mindmap

Variation→random mixing of parents genes in the offspring → A random variation might benefit the individual → If it helps them survive till the next generation, the muted Gene, will pass on to the next generation → Eventually, a new species is born, that derived from another one, but that is better

3)Sources

4)Link to other subjects

Historia → Because of variation and adaptations, evolution happened, and the world changed to what it is now. Before there were neanderthals for example, that evolved through variation to us, homo sapiens sapiens

We weren’t able to finish the day we were given this task because our headphones didn’t work properly, we spoke too much, and the computers were failing

Homework: Pages 261/262, Questions 4 and 5

4)a. Free

B. I. There are more female students than male’s in that school. More students had free ear lobes rather than attached. Women tend more to have attached ear lobes.

II. (?)

III. (?)

5) Has feathers/Wings/Peak
