What is this?

Hi! My name is Ulrik, and this is my student blog. My posts will be based on tasks and subjects given to the class by my English teacher Ann. I am currently in my third year at Sandvika High School, Norway.

A day's work

Today, our teacher Ann was not in class, because she's on a trip to the US. Therefore, we've been told to write what we have done in today's class on our blog.
So today, Haakon and I wrote about how teachers can record their students during a presentation, or ask them to record at home. We looked into different programs to use, and how it can be done easily for both the teacher, and the students. We believe that recording the students, makes it easier to asses the students after the presentations. We also looked into how the teacher can record themselves, so that the students can access it later.

The whole document became about two pages long, and we will use it in a project the class is working on. I will probably write more about this later!

If you have any thoughts about recording in class(or anything else), please share on the comment section ;)
Thanks for reading!

My reading project

For this semester, we have to read one of five different books, and I have chosen the book called "The book thief". The book is set during WW2, and the main character is a German foster girl, living outside of Munich. She uses her time stealing the one thing she cant resist-books. She learns too read from her foster father, and share her books during bombing raids.
The book has only good reviews, but I chose to read this book mainly because of the historical setting, and my interest for ww2. Hopefully it's as good as the reviews says, and I am looking forward to reading it.

Hirohito on his white horse, during an army
inspection, 1938
7 of January, 1989 the Japanese emperor Hirohito died. He had then been emperor since 1926, and led the country trough the most important parts of the 20th century.

When Hirohito became emperor, Japan had already become a great nation, with one of the worlds best economic situations and biggest and most advanced armies. He led the country the same way as those before him, and even though Hirohito had limited powers, he was the head of Japan during the Second World War, which they lost. After the war, he was not sentenced for war crimes, and remained emperor. And it's his reign after the war he is remembered for. Despite his role during the war, he became a symbol of the new Japan, a Japan that rose up from the ash, and became the second largest economy in the world.
