This was sort of a weird week due to the amount of absences. Mr. Schoenborn was here only one day and I was gone for two of the days. The nice thing about this was that we were only starting a project which means we only needed to read everyday and there was little instruction.
For the multi modal project my group and I chose to read The Alchemist and as the week went on and we kept reading more, we all really came to love the book. We thought it was an easy read and very interesting. We read about Santiago's journey and how he chose to follow his path sent down by God. We thought the book was sort of cheesy since he talks to the wind and to his heart but none the less it was still a good novel. This project would be easy for us because of how great it was to read in the first place. It got us to discuss the book a lot in class and even made us notice signs from the book in our real live, like "following the omens".
The project would also be very easy for us because our skill set was very diverse in order to complete all the tasks for the website we would make. I would be the graphic designer because I have a lot of knowledge in that area. We were all excited to start working and see how our thoughts and creativity could turn out to make something from a book come to life on a screen.
