For this Spanish project we were first required to label and highlight things on a map that are important and or relate to the book we started in class called “Pobre Ana”. We also wrote populations of some of those cities or states down along with the population of Texas and its capital to compare. Next, we had the option of making a slideshow or board of some kind to show ten pictures of places we’d like to visit in Mexico along with the city and state they’re located in. Two of those places had to be located in the state of Nayarit to go along with the book as well. The project connects with our curriculum because we got to learn more about the culture of the language we’ve been learning. From the map portion of this project, I learned that Mexico has states like the U.S. and the comparisons between states in Mexico and the state I live in, Texas. From the slideshow portion of the project I learned about a few interesting places I may actually like to visit one day. I didn’t know about many places in Mexico, besides beaches, before I started this assignment. One place I chose for my project was the “Rafael Tovar y de Teresa Museum of Mexican Music” because music is a big part of my life and I think it would be interesting to learn about the history of music in Mexico. Another place I chose was Xochimilco because of the boats on the river that show much of Mexican culture with shops, food, and music.

Swallowing Stones by Joyce McDonald follows Michael Mackenzie and Jenna Ward who both live in Briarwood New Jersey only a few blocks away from each other. On the 4th of July at Michael’s 17th birthday party, he gets a new Winchester rifle from his grandfather which he later takes into the woods with his best friend, Joe, and fires it into the air. A few blocks over a man, Jenna Wards father, is shot in the head by a flying bullet from the sky and dies right in front of his daughter. When Michael finds out about the death he denies that it could possibly be him since it was the 4th of July and many people were firing things into the air. But he soon makes a pact with Joe to never tell anyone so Michael could keep his perfect life. But as Jenna gets more and more determined to find the killer, Michael and Joe have to continue to lie and be secretive about what happened. He has to keep “Swallowing Stones”.
