Malcolm X

 Malcolm X is a Muslim. One of his brothers was beaten by the white police man. He was mad and they put his brother in jail.  Malcolm X and the Nation Of Islam went to the jail where the put his brother and they said they wouldn't leave till they see him. The police let them see him and they said to rush him to the hospital. Well Malcolm and his brothers started walking to the hospital. While walking many people started to join walking with them.
 Malcolm went to Egypt and was learning about more Muslims. He was staying with all colors drinking from the same cup and sharing everything with them. He came back to the United States and was telling everyone that their leader is not telling the truth. He said that only black people are Muslims and when Malcolm told them about the Muslims, they stopped going to that church. They started going to Malcolm's church and the Nation Of Islam was mad. They wanted to kill Malcolm for making the Nation Of Islam loose money. While Malcolm was preaching the came to his church and killed Malcolm in front of his kids.

1. Describe your team's game topic and talk about the most important concept you want your players to learn.
My team game idea is about saving energy, and people will learn to use solar energy instead of using a lot of energy.

2. How did the ideas you discussed in "Imagining Your Game" come together to help your team decide on a game topic?
Because my game idea had action in my partner game idea is about saving energy so our game is shooting solar panels onto houses.

3. Tell us more about your team by saying who has what role, and how you work together.
I draw and Genevieve writes and we both look up information.

4. What kind of research did you do to find information to express the game topic? Examples: books, films, web searches....etc.

The web and we haven't finished looking up facts in information.

5. Explain the game play. What does the player have to do?
The player will jump and move to shoot and dodge houses that are bad for our planet.

6. Has this changed since you first started planning your game? How?
Yes because we are adding a little bit of math equations and there are floating houses and everything is in the sky.

Malcolm X

Malcolm X was born in Omaha, Nebraska and was born on May 19, 1925 and died February 21, 1965.Malcolm Little was also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz and he was an African-American Muslim minister, public speaker, and human rights activist. The white Americans accused Malcolm of preaching racism and violence. When Malcolm was thirteen, his father had died and his mother had been put into a mental hospital.  After living in a lot of foster homes, Malcolm X became involved in lots of criminal activities in Boston and New York. In 1946, Malcolm X was sentenced to eight to ten years in prison for sleeping with white women.While in prison, Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam, and after his parole in 1952 he became one of the Nation's leaders and chief spokesmen. While in prison, Malcolm earned the nickname of "Satan" for his hostility toward religion.

Mad Hot Ballroom 2

 The main idea was to work hard and have fun. One teacher told all the students "the key to success in life is to find something you love to do and do it very well." There was a team and they worked hard practiced all the time. Then at the finales they won the gold trophy.They were so happy they practiced and practiced and the won, all the teachers were happy and so were the kids.

Learning Goal

My game idea is to have a couple of math problems. My games math questions will make the player think during the game. The other reason that my game can teach people is to save energy. There is a chance that if people use all the energy we will die earlier. My game is trying to teach students how to save energy.

Malcolm X

 I was only able to see a little of Malcolm X because I went to a field trip. I saw that when Malcolm was a boy his dad was a minister and was killed by a races gang called the KKK. When they killed his dad they separated him and his brother an sisters. Malcolm grew up in a white family and went to a white school. When he was a boy in school the teacher told him he couldn't be a lawyer, the teacher told Malcolm your only good at picking up things. When Malcolm grew up he wasn't a lawyer he was working in a train, and when he was working for a drug dealer he didn't give that guy the money so the drug dealer wanted to kill Malcolm. He decided he will rob the city and leave. He went robbing people and when he was getting a haircut he was caught and went to jail for 8-10 years in prison.

I got this from

Mad Hot Ballroom

 Today we watched Mad Hot Ballroom. It was about these schools in New York that having dancing classes. These schools have this program for free and the students will work hard and learn to dance. When they get good at the dances the teachers have to choose who should go and represent the school. When they do go to the competition they compete and only some teams win. There was a school that lost and all the students started to cry.

How To Behave

  We were bad because some people were talking. I was trying to tell them to be quite but they kept on talking and it took us 10 minutes to calm down that why were aren't playing a game. We need to just stop talking and learn. Sometimes its the same people and it makes me mad because me and the class have to get in trouble for what that one person does. Everyone just needs to stop talking for once they can talk at lunch or during passing period.
