The first thing I liked about this clip was the girls’ confidence. This greatly had a huge impact on the overall video and on me because these girls were confident with what they were saying. Anybody can say claims and counterclaims regarding what they are speaking for but, if they don’t have a loud, clear and strong
what was your overall impression of the video? Was it a balanced/accurate portrayal of the issue/people? How? /Why not? Did your position and/or understanding of the issues change? How? /Why not?
I really enjoyed this documentary because it made me realize just how lucky I am for the life I was given. It changed my perception of happiness in so many ways. It made me realize that I have more than I need to live a happy life. Other people around the world don’t have as nice of a house or even a house at all to live in and are so much happier than I am and that is something that sparked my attention. For example, the man who lives in India, Manoj Singh, he lives in what looks like poverty to me, but to him, he lives well. There are times where his family are only able to eat rice and he has no air conditioning in his home, but he still remains a very happy man. When he mentioned that there are times where his family only eats rice, it instantly made me feel awful because I have all the food in the world around me and I still take it for granted some days. I also take my family for granted at times. For instance, the man from Louisiana, his family and friends are what make him happy the most. He is simply grateful for them while
I have been in AVID for 4 years now, currently in my fourth year, I first found out about AVID from my older brother and cousins. My first year in AVID was in seventh grade, they mostly helped us organize our binders to keep our school work from getting misplaced and helped us organize our notes Cornell notes style. When started AVID in high school it prepared me a lot more for college. Since freshman year AVID has helped me make sure I take all the necessary classes I need for college, like the A-G requirements. AVID makes sure we are involved with school clubs and/or sports to helping sign up for the ACT and SAT. Because of AVID I have learned to be more organized not only in school but also in my daily life. I have learned to keep a daily
I became part of the AVID program in eighth grade, I had no clue what the program was about; most of the time we worked on subjects that we needed help on, learned how to be organized, and practiced public speaking by having small socratic seminars. In a way, the tactics that my eighth grade AVID teacher taught me helped me become successful for my college preparation it helped improve my grades in the classes that I was struggling in and pushed me to take challenging courses. In my sophomore, junior, and senior year of high school, I spent my time reviewing different schools around the state and out-of-the state browsing through the financial aid assistance, majors and minors, location, and diversity to choose from. Junior year was the best
To me, this video was really inspiring and encouraging. I agree with what Meg Jay had to say and am currently working on bettering myself and my future. It is hard to make a lot of life choices right out of high school and
I also watched the #LetHerLearn Video, and I felt very ashamed as a white person to have known that others of my race have treated these young girls this way. They are in school to simply learn a curriculum, but yet, people still disrupt them and always have something to do about it, for no reason. But towards the end, I felt powerful, I felt their power and passion within me. I wanted to stand up and clap. The video left me with chills. I also watched Pushout: The Criminalization of Black Girls in School and I found it to be really inspiring. The women who have gone through being pushed out of the school system now use their stories to bring awareness to the issue. I have so much respect for them that they are able to share their stories to
The video resonates with me as a first generation college graduate. It puts a smile on my face knowing that someone was willing to put their foot down on granting everyone the opportunity to gaining an education. I always tell myself and others that an education is the best gift someone could ever give themselves. That being said, I am pleased to see that Justin Morrill was able to give that gift to Americans across the globe. 125 years later, I am thrilled to see that Land grant universities are still in effect and doing what they can to provide access and enhance opportunities for everyone watching a higher education. I can relate to this video on a personal level considering I was a first generation college graduate. Knowing that there are other people who wanted to attend college as bad as myself makes me feel like we can all make a difference in this world of higher education. I am grateful to be where I am, gaining a higher education as a graduate student and in return I am thankful that everyone is given that same
I can’t say that I honestly enjoyed watching it, but then again that is not the point of a documentary such as this. This documentary, although not the most exciting to watch, forces you to constantly evaluate and consider the information being presented to you. There were times I would have to rewind just to give my thoughts a second to catch up, and in that sense, the film fully accomplished its goal. In discussing complicated ideas such as education, employment, and obedience it showed me just how narrow my scope of the world is, and I think I can better understand what the narrator meant and how he felt when he said: “almost everything I was brought up to believe turns out to be
Overall, I think there are many aspects to this video that connect to the society we live in today. The video strongly highlights wants vs needs which is a growing problem in our society that needs to be addressed and instilled into humans at a young
This video had a very positive effect and he was very successful in getting the message that he wants out to the public, but it is still an occurring issue that happens every day.
The video had some good points. To stand as one, against violence, poverty and injustice the 11/05/2015 Paris attacks. However, since my source was a video it made it harder to edit, I will use written articles for future assignments. The video was a good source for someone wanting to know when, where and how he or she would united against such injustices. However, not for someone looking for information about hackers hacking large corporations. The handout from class helped a lot.
Those statements and moments made an impact because I hear and see this daily with the students I work with. It sadness me that this video is the norm for so many of my students and the community. This made an impact on me because our students are being short changed and the
The video did well with getting teenagers attention, this was done by the people in the video speaking to their 16 year old self. I did also like how the video spoke to peoples emotions. It made skin cancer real and showed how it affect not only the person with skin cancer but the family as well. Overall, the video is a very effective way to bring awareness and lower rates of skin cancer.
During the video, I had a number of different feelings about what I saw. One being sadness for those who have to go to food shelves to survive, the ones who no matter how hard they tried can't find a way out of poverty because it just continues to follow them everywhere that they go. I felt sorry for those who have lost loved ones, and those whose families flat out fell apart. And especially those who had a family to take care of that couldn't. Those are the people that I feel bad for because they were counted on the most. I also found it difficult to wrap my head around how much poverty that there is in the world, I used to only think that there was just a handful but I now know that's not the case.
