Student Name: Shannon L.

Biography:  You know that person who is never shy when they walk in a room, confident, funny, daring, and never awkward? That’s not me. I am the complete opposite of those things. I am very self-conscious about most of the things I do, especially when it comes to writing and I am shy, if I don’t know you or if I am involved in classroom discussions. I don’t think of myself as funny, although I love to laugh. And, even though I am definitely not daring, I like to have fun. If I had to describe myself in one word, it would be awkward, and if you met me you would know this to be true.Let these blogs be the rabbit hole you fall down to see the inner-workings of my mind.

Previous Knowledge/ Opinions about Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland prior to project: I know very little about the story of Alice in Wonderland, only what I remember from my childhood. I know the basis of the story, that there is a girl, named Alice, who falls down a rabbit hole and is curious about what she finds.

Thoughts about the project on Day 1: I am very excited about reading Alice in Wonderland and this project. I am curious to what I might find down the rabbit hole!

Student Name: Gage L.

Biography:  I was born in Arlington, Texas and am currently living there as well. I enjoy spending most of my time with family and friends. Sports and athletic activities are how I spend most of my time away from school. I am dedicated and love meeting new people. There is no possible way I could tell you everything about myself in this simple paragraph but over time I hope you get to learn more about me.

Previous Knowledge / Opinions about Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Prior to the Project: I love the thought that we are learning Alice in Wonderland in the 10th grade. My previous thoughts were that the story was just merely for children but yet I stand corrected. I cannot wait to begin the book, I am very excited!

Thoughts about the Project on Day 1: On day one I really had no clue what was going on but after I got the idea of it, it seemed to be one of the most advanced in class projects I have ever been introduced to.

Student Name: Rachel M.

Biography: I’m Rachel. You must want to know something about me if you are here, so I’ll just go for it. I am pensive and creative, but don’t take me too seriously. I like to put on an air of fluidity and grace, but internally I am bold and jagged. Naively, I like to think of myself as complex. I love to draw, I love cake, and I love love. There’s more, but it wouldn’t be interesting if you know everything.

Previous Knowledge / Opinions about Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Prior to the Project: I know little about Alice save what Disney has allowed me. From the Disney classic I know only that it is a story of a young girl’s adventures in a strange world where nothing is as it seems and no one will help her.

Thoughts about the Project on Day 1: I am excited and anxious to get into Wonderland.

Student Name: Brendon O-L.

Biography: Who am I you may ask? I am Brendon Lynch. If I had to describe myself, I would say I am an ambitious student. Baseball is how I spend my weekends, and I love chocolate ice cream. The speed of light is 2.998 x 108 m/s, 1,547,620,785 0 = 1, and T(t)-Tm = (To-Tm)e-kt . Chasing my two brothers around the house is normal, and sleeping is what makes the world go round. The sky is any color you want it to be and blue can be red, except when it’s orange. I think. Now you may be thinking I am like Weird Al, but I’m not weird! OK, alright, maybe just a little, but I am ahead of the curve. That is something you are sure to notice in the future.

Previous Knowledge / Opinions about Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Prior to the Project: The extent of my knowledge is the whimsical Disney movie that I watched when I was younger. I remember, vividly, all the characters: Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, everyone. That movie never ceases to amuse. The book appears to be a very enjoyable read, although I have never read it. I am positive that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol will be, not surprisingly, wonderful.

Thoughts about the Project on Day 1: Curious. Apprehensive. Anxious. These are the words I would use to describe my uncontrollable excitement. I am overjoyed that we have the chance to work on, what I would call, a ground-breaking project. I never imagined that English could be, well, fun.

  1. So glad to meet you Shannon L., Gage L., Rachel M., and Rachel M.
    I will follow down that rabbit hole, but I bring Starbuck’s coffee instead of tea to the table.
