For my Senior Action Project, I decided to do a Pre-K book club with one of my classmates. Reading and children are two things I am very passionate about, so I thought this was the perfect way to combine them. Every Wednesday after school in January and February, me and a couple of my friends went down to Trinity and read books to the kids for a half an hour. There are many benefits of reading to young children, but you can learn about that in our presentation. I hope you enjoy listening to us talk about the presentation as much as we enjoyed the book club!
What I will be showing in this post about my final program is the source code, which is basically the code that you write to get the program to output that you want it to. Just a warning, my code is a little long, so it will take a while to read it if you decide to. I’ve embedded it in the bottom of this post, along with a file with my project and a file saying how to run it. Continue reading Programming Project Source Code
The output of my Programming project is one of the features I am most proud of. I think it looks nice and formatted and the final result is fun for the user to read. This post will talk more about that and the specifics.
For my Programming Cumulative Project, I decided to do a Buzzfeed type Personality Quiz that will tell the user which Lincoln Lutheran teacher they are. The source code was based on mostly things that I had already learned how to do, except for one thing- the dictionary function, which I’ll get more into in the next paragraph. The output provides the user with their result, along with a short 1-2 sentence description of the teacher they are most like.
For my cumulative Programming Project, I decided to create a personality quiz. I did this because I had always thought it would be interesting to try and create the quiz. I had gotten the idea from one of my friends on one of the questions of the week that we do to create a personality quiz that tells the user what teacher at Lincoln Lutheran they were and I thought that it would be a lot of fun, so I decided to do it. I sent out a survey to all the teachers at LL asking a few questions about themselves that I thought would be good questions to ask my classmates and I got 17 responses.
In my senior year of high school, I decided to take a programming class (we use Python). I had been approached by multiple people who took programming in the past and told me that I should take it because it was useful for college and beyond. So far, it has been tough. We have a lot of homework most of the time, but I like to think that I have good time management skills, so it hasn’t been as hard as it could be. I am writing this when we are just over halfway through the class, because it’s only a semester long.
This is my “That Was I” poem that I did for my English 4 class based on the one by Ted Koosier. This is the final draft of the poem and I like it a lot. I think the circular feel that it has from the beginning to the end.
This is a poem that I wrote for my English 4 class in 12th grade. It is a “Where I’m From” poem based on one by George Ella Lyon. Continue reading Where I’m From Poem
For our Multimedia Applications class, a big assignment we had was to create a website on the topic of our choice. For my website, I chose to make an informative site on Disney World. Continue reading Disney World Travel Tips
Negative Effects of European Colonization
European Colonization or Colonialism is when different countries from
Europe came to different parts of the world and took over. This happened in many different periods of time, from about the 1400s to the 1800s. The first period was 1400-1700. This was mainly caused by the Europeans wanting new resources from these different areas of the world. They established trade routes to gain these new products. The second part was in the 1800s, focused on the Europeans wanting more raw materials from these areas of the world. I think that European colonialism was more negative than positive. The Europeans took away and forced many things on different countries. They treated the people awfully in these countries. Continue reading Colonization Essay
