Every week, our Week in Rap Shout-Out Contest gives students an opportunity to win a shout out for their school in the next Week in Rap. For this week’s contest, we kicked off the school year by asking: What do you want to learn?
Our winner this week is Chatham Charter School in Siler City, NC. Mrs. Jourdan’s students wrote some wonderful entries:
- Hi! I’m Tamia and I’m 12 years old. Something I’ve always wanted to learn is gymnastics. Cheer, dance and gymnastics has always been a passion for me but I know that my family cannot afford it, so I’ve tried to teach myself from youtube videos. It has taught me some but not at the level I need to compete with others who actually have one on one training. I’ve always wanted to learn how to do front or back flips in the air. I believe that if someone spotted me or gave me support and taught me the proper techniques I could be successful. Over the years I’ve watched my cousin perform gymnastics and I’ve said to myself, “Wow! I wish I could do that.” My dream is to learn in a place where there are talented teachers, good supporters, and reasonable tuition. — Tamia
- I want to learn how to create an advanced computer software that allows people to do a great number of things.
The first thing it will allow them to do is communicate without a skype camera or app, you just click the camera button and type in the name of the person you want to talk to. It will allow the communication signal to travel great distances incase your family, friends, or relatives live overseas or a long ways off.
The second thing it will allow people to do is to make their own websites with ease. It will give you high speed Internet so that you can create a website where u can sell items or just so people can look at it. When you create a website using this software it will allow you to create a commercial for your website for a price of $50.
The third and final thing that my software will allow people to do is connect with their TV or Internet so that they can watch TV from their computers anywhere they would like. You simply just click the button that looks like a TV, and then you click your TV provider and type in your Internet passcode. After that you will be allowed to watch live TV from all of your channels anywhere you go with or without Internet. — Rachel
- If I could learn anything that I don’t know yet, I would learn Chinese. I would learn Chinese because it seems like a really cool language to speak and write. I would also like to learn sign language so I could communicate with people that cannot speak. Also, if I learn these things I could teach other people too. These are the things I would learn if I could learn anything. — Briana
