Product

Now I need to decide what product I will produce. I've looked through the list on the assignment sheet and I'm thinking I would like to do something I am good at so that I get a good grade. I think the best way to present my topic is to make a keynote about it and include some songs about the Cultural Revolution.


That's what I'm going to do. I'm going to make a keynote about the lyrics of songs about the Cultural Revolution.

Research Question

Now I need to come up with a question that will focus my research. It should be specific and feasible (doable). My topic is "lyrics of songs about the Cultural Revolution + story they tell". My research question could be:


- What are the lyrics of the songs about? (e.g. violence/childhood/school/etc.)
- Who wrote these songs?
- What instruments were used?
- How was the melody?

Investigation Topic

I need to decide what my topic will be. It should be something I am interested in. My topic is music during the Cultural Revolution. This is my brainstorm:

  • what are the lyrics about
  • what story is told in the song
  • melody of the music
  • who sang these songs
  • who came up with these songs
  • when and why did they sing these songs
  • was there a dance to every song
  • amount of songs that are about the Cultural Revolution
  • how these songs got so common
  • where they sang these songs
  • were there any instruments used

After my brainstorm I have decided to focus more on the lyrics of these songs and about what story they tell. I will also talk about all the other things but my main focus will be the lyrics and the story behind them.

English Book Review - Twilight

The main characters of the book are Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen. Bella is a normal human and fell in love with Edward. She goes to High School and has a best friend, called Jacob. She only cares about other people and does all to make them feel good. She is a really nice but shy person. Actually she is good in school. She has no siblings and moved to Forks to live with her dad. Her mom lives something else and has a new boyfriend. Edward is a vampire and the Bella’s boyfriend. He can read other peoples mind. He lives in Forks since he became a vampire because the weather there is really bad and the sun isn’t shining a lot, which is a good for vampires. He has 2 brothers and 2 sisters but actually they’re not his real siblings. He would die to save Bella’s life.

The setting is actually only in Forks. But in the end Bella goes to the city where her mom lives because she thinks that a bad vampire has her and wants to kill her, so she tries to save her mom, but it’s just a fake.

The story is told through the first person (Bella) but after some time it changes and then Edward or Jacob is the narrator. I think that this is really effective because then you really know and understand what the people think.

I would recommend this book because it’s really romantic, dramatic and exiting and it’s something totally different. I think that it is really exiting where the vampire tries to kill her when she is alone in a dance studio.

English Book Review - New Moon

The main characters of the book are Isabella Swan and Edward Cullen. Bella is a normal human and fell in love with Edward. She goes to High School and has a best friend, called Jacob. She only cares about other people and does all to make them feel good. She is a really nice but shy person. Actually she is good in school. She has no siblings and moved to Forks to live with her dad. Her mom lives something else and has a new boyfriend. Edward is a vampire and the Bella’s boyfriend. He can read other peoples mind. He lives in Forks since he became a vampire because the weather there is really bad and the sun isn’t shining a lot, which is a good for vampires. He has 2 brothers and 2 sisters but actually they’re not his real siblings. He would die to save Bella’s life.

The setting is actually only in Forks. But Edward drives to Italy to let other vampires kill him because he thinks that Bella is dead.

The story is told through the first person (Bella) but after some time it changes and then Edward or Jacob is the narrator. I think that this is really effective because then you really know and understand what the people think.

I think, Bella is a really strong person because she tries to save everyone else before she saves herself.

The message of the book is to portray that through love anything can be achieved.

I would definitely recommend this book and all fiction lovers should read it because it’s really exiting.
