BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. This term we are reading Rabbit Proof Fence. This book is about three aboriginal girls with European fathers. These girls are separated from their parents and their home because the government wanted them to receive an education. The three girls weren't comfortable there, so they escaped from there and they went home.

    They story happened in Australia. Australia is one of the biggest countries in the world. It has many unique animals like kangaroos and koalas. By reading these articles I've learned some things about this country, for example, the fact that 90 percent of the Australians live near the coast, and 30 percent were born in another country. It has also some of the most poisoning snakes and is the country where you can find the biggest rock in the world.

    In my opinion Rabbit Proof Fence is a very interesting book because is based on a real story. At the end of the story the book tells you what happened with the three girls and their town.

    Changing terms, as you asked, I will recommend two songs that I like by a Turkish group called maNga:
    - We could be the same
    - Fly to stay alive

  6. Rabbit-Proof Fence: this story happens in Australia. The story talk about the live the people, the protagonists are three girls who were desert people who walked all over their land.
    This continent that has 4,779,602 square miles and 7,692,024 square kilometers, this means that Australia is one of the largest countries in the world and that is very interesting.
    Australian Aborigines are estimated to have lived there for more than 40,000 years, they painted their bodies with lines because they serve to protect themselves from the bites of flies and mosquitoes .
    It is a populated country in its surroundings and the closer you get to the center, the less population there is and Australia is the country with the lowest population density, only 2 people per square kilometer.
    Everyone who visits Australia returns with anecdotes of encounters with dangerous animals, snakes, jellyfish or spiders.
    In my opinion, is the interesting to visit for the history it has and the unique animals that live there but I hate all of insects.
