In-Depth begins!

For 2014, my In-depth project is archery! My plan is to learn the basics and develop those skills so that by the end of the project I will be able to shoot with accuracy while demonstrating this skill to others. So who will be involved? Other than myself, this project will definitely involve my mentor (Sheila), but it will also involve the support of my parents. My parents will actually.. Read More

My Eminent Bi’blog’raphy

Wow. Now it’s time for Eminent to truly wrap up! It sure was one wild roller coaster. To conclude this project, I have one sort-of-not-really interesting post, and that is my biblography! I’m sure you’ll be interested in this post if you came here looking for some tips and information on Alice Munro. If that’s the case, I’ve basically done all the research for you! Anyway I’ll put the links.. Read More

Night of the Notables Assessment

Night of the Notables was an absolutely amazing night, but it wasn’t just the night that made it awesome. It was also the hard work put in prior to the night. Although I had a good time, now is the time to start wrapping things up. Starting with my Learning Center. I felt that it was very successful despite the poor lighting and use of space. I found that the.. Read More

Document of Learning

With Night of the Notables just around the corner,  I will dedicate this post to my learning center since I have already presented my speech, but if anyone would like to see my speech in paper, I have a link right here -> Eminent Speech 2013 – Alison Kim Anyway, continuing on about learning centers. This weekend was a blur with my extracurricular activities and my learning center. My plan for.. Read More

Eminent Interview…oh my

The thought of an interview seriously scared me at first. The idea of speaking to someone over the phone without even meeting them and having to communicate with only my voice scared me. Even more so if the person was quite significant and very respectable. It really is a different experience from public speaking in front of an audience. So, let’s start from the very beginning. Knowing my Eminent Person.. Read More

Field Study

On our recent field trip to the Vancouver Public Library and Macleod’s used book store, I was able to obtain some resources on Alice Munro. Although all of Munro’s books were sold out at Macleod’s, I was able to scrounge one copy at the Vancouver Public Library. I go the VPL quite often, but that day I was led to a section of the library that was never cataloged and quite.. Read More

Picking an author for Eminent

This post is going to be really simple.   Why did I pick an author for eminent that doesn’t even have a single available copy of their book in the library?   I find this to be quite intriguing, but my research just got a bit tougher.

Eminent Person – Alice Munro

Alice Munro has been the news of Canada these past two weeks and I’m sure that at least some of you have heard of her, whether that is through books, news articles, or social media. I’ve been inspired to choose her as my Eminent person due to her recent achievement, winning the 2013 Nobel Literature prize for Canada. She was also the first female Canadian to ever win this prize,.. Read More

One word…Simplify

The word I chose is simplify, but this blog post sure isn’t going to be that simple. After getting stuck on thinking of a good word, I browsed through some of the Sea to Sky photos on Flickr and was reminded of one word that was discussed at the top of the peak, that being simplify. The dictionary definition of this word is fairly simple, “To make something easier to understand”,.. Read More
