This week we have been learning about relationships and the traits of the characters. We started reading a new novel “October Sky”. The new book is the year Sputnik was launched. On Monday we watched two videos one of the 1930s and the 1950s on how their reactions were with the launching of Sputnik, between the Russians point of view and the Americans point of view.
This week I’ve learning that relationships are important in life and are needed to be happy and when you have a relationship that isn’t doing good for you, you should get rid of that relationship. I’ve also learned many differences between the 1930s and the 1950s, in the 1930s there was a lot of poor families and a lot of people were suffering but in the 1950s it was a happier time.
The book October Sky that we just started reading is not my favorite, I am not very interested in it. Although I’m not that interested in it I do like the history that is in it with it being based on Sputnik and the town that they are in Coalwood and it was changing and slowly dying.
