For Inquiry my group and I created a diagram/poster about Hearing Loss. In the poster there is information about the questions we were curious about and there is also pictures that are related to our questions. Down below is our diagram, I hope you learn something new about hearing loss and enjoy!

Explanation - I heard a whisper

I heard a whisper

On a rainy day a group of students stayed at the library to study for a huge exam coming up. Santo, Johnny, Stefan, and Caroline. They were all sitting at one table in front of the vending machines because the back tables were being used by other students.

As they were trying their best to concentrate and remain focused so they could study, Stefan finds it hard to focus because of the amount of depression and stress he has been going through. He took a break from studying and walked around the library until he felt better. Once he felt like he could concentrate, he went back and continued to study.

The sun had finally set and it was really getting late. Everyone had left. The library was very silent and it looked as though the room was pitch black, they could barely see half of the room. Throughout their studying Johnny brought up terrifying stories that had been placed in this library, but they didn’t believe him because they knew that the stories weren’t true. All three of them tried to ignore Johnny but he wouldn’t stop. While he was telling his creepy stories they heard a whisper coming from upstairs and they froze with fear. The very focused group of students were horrified. They were so terrified of what it was, so they quickly packed their study books and rushed to the door.

As they were trying to leave they heard the whisper again. The doors slam shut and automatically locks on it’s own. There is not a single window you can open. The lights turn off and their hearts are beating non-stop, they then try and make their way towards the door so they could try and bust it down or maybe scream for help. Caroline then finds a very old fancy looking torch in a small box underneath a cabinet full of books. She hits the switch on the torch and points it at everyone. Their eyes squinted because their eyes were tired. She flashed it upstairs and they saw the most terrifying thing they have ever seen, a mysterious woman sitting on a rocking chair staring at them.

They screamed as loud as they could and cried for help. They then saw a car pull up in the parking lot, so they tried to bang on the door to get the their attention but it didn’t work. So we flashed the torch at him and he rushed to us then called the owner of the library. The woman suddenly runs rapidly at them with a knife. The students scared for their lives, they decide to fight back. Just as Johnny was about to take the first hit, the police opens the door and the woman disappears. The students walk out looking paralysed but very relieved.

A few days after the incident happened they couldn’t stop thinking about what happened, they found out the previous owner of the library was a woman called Roary Higgins who had died in the library. They say she haunts the library and will haunt anyone who tries to demolish it.

Writing - The Concert

The concert

The sun sets and it’s getting late. Jackson and Ivan headed for the showers while Mark and Twan were picking out their clothes. Jackson had a bad feeling in his gut like something was going to happen, but he pushed his worries aside and tried to enjoy the night.

Mark had already gotten changed. He was wearing the usual clothes he wears when going out, a black long sleeve t-shirt with camo chino joggers and black sneakers which he thought was flash. Jackson and Twan were basically wearing the same thing, blue jeans with a white long sleeve t-shirt and white sneakers, while Ivan was just wearing casual clothes, a blue hoodie with black chino joggers and blue vans with his hair slick back. Once they’ve all finished doing their hair and spraying Lynx on it was time to leave. They make sure the house is locked up and they’ve got the tickets, after that headed off to Post Malone’s concert.

During the car ride they listen to old school music like backstreet boys and boyz II men, “Could you turn the radio up please!” Ivan says as he still has the worrying feeling. As they reach their destination they see a helicopter rounding the building, they thought it was the police so they didn’t worry about it. They rush in line so they could get the front row which is the best because you get a perfect view of Post Malone. As they take the first step into the building they got that Post Malone vibe, they were so lucky they got the front row and they thought of Post Malone meeting them. Post Malone walks out and everyone’s jumping and screaming. They jam to a couple of his songs and when he sings Rockstar everyone jumps up and down feeling like a real rockstar.

Post Malone plays a few other songs and just when he sings his last song “I fall apart” everyone got that sad kind of vibe. “Where’s Jackson” asked Ivan “He went to the bathroom” replied Mark. “What, this is the last song he should be out here living the moment” says Ivan with emotion. “Don’t worry, I’m recording it for him” said Mark “Ok, good” said Ivan. They continue to sway their hands in the air and just right when the song is about to finish they hear people screaming from the back, “Help” cries a young woman. They see bombings coming in from a helicopter and everybody tries to run to the exit doors. It’s painful seeing people get hurt, so they tried to help as many people as we could to the exit. They saw one woman falling off the edge of the side so Mark rushes to help her while Ivan and Twan go off looking for Jackson.

It’s past 30 minutes and the police has arrived. The bombing stopped but people are still terrified for their life. Mark rushes to the other boys to help find Jackson. A few minutes have past and they find Jackson helping a young teenage boy trying to find his sister. They all look away for one second and the teenage boy has already ran off. They turn to their right side and they see him in tears hugging his sister. Everyone then reaches an exit point and there are more than 12 ambulances here. The wounded people are helped into the ambulance waiting to head off to the hospital, and as one left another 3 came back.

They then help some people find their relatives and they helpfully offered to take one family home. After they took that family home they went back to the incident and see only one family there. “Do you need a ride home” said Ivan to a crying woman with her brother. “That would be very helpful” says the crying woman with fear. They take her to her residence and she hugs Ivan with a huge thank you and smile on her face. They then head off home themselves. “You know the weird thing was, I had a strange feeling in my gut that something would happen” says Ivan. “Then why didn’t you tell us” asks Twan. “Because I didn’t want to ruin the night” replies Ivan with fear still from the incident.

Around the World reading - Poetry (2)

Around the world reading
Tittle: Two girls ago

My rating: 7/10

Author: Lucie Brock-Broido

The poem itself is very simple and easy. I think i'ts trying to tell us a teenage girl's/boy's life with their parents in it telling her/him to follow rules they have given her/him. I think the parents are very protective of the teenager, but it also says " No threat, In the table of contents i'm not dead yet ". I think the parents are trying to tell her/him they haven't died yet, they still control and tell you what to and not to do.
