IAHH character trait

A character trait of a character in IAHH that I would most like to cultivate in my life is John MacDonald's maturity. I would like John's maturity because I want to be more responsible and mature so that my family can depend on me. I would also want John's maturity because I am growing up and as you age you learn may new ideas and thoughts, and being mature helps you out a lot in life. Maturity can help you with jobs and schooling. These are some reasons why I would want to have John MacDonald's maturity.

IAHH Theme

A possible theme of Incident at Hawks Hill is no matter what don't give up. I think the theme is no matter what don't give up because if Ben gave up during his time with the badger he would've died really fast from hunger. I also say the theme is no matter what don't give up because during the search for Ben everyone but the MacDonald family gave up looking for Ben, and in the end Ben got home.

IAHH, Scope, Newsela

In the novel IAHH currently it has gotten pretty interesting, so to explain Ben and the badger have gotten closer which leads to Ben acting more badger less human he and the badger kill the dog Lobo its getting pretty good. In scope I read an article about T.V which was interesting to hear about how important T.V was to some people even though the T.V was small in picture. In the newsela I was assigned I learned about the many dangers of invasive species such as the lion fishes poison spikes, and how technology is combating that problem we face. For example some technology is a robot who stuns lion fish than captures them into containers.

If it wouldn’t be too much trouble I would like to ask you some questions about your job, and I hope you could provide some answers to them giving me more information about what you do.

  • What are the worst illnesses you have had to treat?
  • About how many people do you see a day?
  • What got you into being a doctor?
  • How long have you been a doctor?
  • What's the worst thing about your job?
  • What tools are the best to use as a doctor?
  • What's the most satisfying thing about your career?
  • What can I do to help prepare myself for a career like this?

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to read, and answer some of these questions that I had about your profession. I am interested in learning more about this career, and getting tips on how to become a doctor. Thanks again for reading my questions, and I hope you help more and more people.

Week Reflection

In class this week we have been working hard on plenty of different items. We have been working on Incident at Hawks Hill which has an interesting plot of a boy who can mimic animals, and on a career letter in which I am writing to a doctor because I am considering becoming a doctor later in life.

Camp Michindoh

A memory from camp Michindoh I have is going to a one roomed school house, and for laughing I had to come up to the board and put my nose on the chalkboard. When the teacher asked questions I would raise my hand and she would yell at me, and eventually I just started banging my head on the board. Camp was a good time.
