Hermann Rorschach: Master of the Subconcious

For this year’s Eminent Project, I chose Hermann Rorschach, a Swiss psychiatrist notable for having invented the inkblot test and having been one of the earliest psychologists to work with unconscious projection. I chose him because of my interest in the field of psychiatry and psychology, and I felt that I could relate to him more than other psychologists or psychiatrists since we’re both male. I found him while reading up on 20th century psychology, and.. Read More

Updates and My Plan for the Future: In Depth Post #6

In Depth Night is right around the corner, and I’m putting together a plan for how I’m going to showcase my project. At the beginning of In Depth, I decided that I was going to make a website to show what I’ve learned over the course In Depth. I have been thinking about whether to ask to present my website on the big screen in the MPR, or set up a projector to have a.. Read More

Meeting my Mentor

After a long search, I finally found someone willing to be my mentor. To give some background, the mentor I found is a family friend, so it was very easy to plan meetings, so I was able to meet my mentor 3 times over the course of spring break. This gave me a lot of information I needed, and most importantly, allowed me to catch up and finally be able to experience working with a.. Read More

Closer and Closer: In-Depth Post #3

It’s week six of the In-Depth project, and I am mentor-less. It’s frustrating, but I’m doing all I can. The problem is, everyone I’ve asked is just so busy. I’ve reached out to various teachers, looked around the community for people able and willing to be a mentor, but it’s so far been a fruitless effort. However, I’m making lots of progress in the area I chose to learn about. By my next post, I’m going.. Read More

In-Depth Post #2

This is the second post about my In-Depth journey. This one is going to be centered on me, since I have not found a mentor yet. There are a variety of reasons, but what is important is that I don’t stop my project. So, I’ve taken my project into my own hands for now, although I am working very hard towards finding a mentor. A partial mentor I had talked with, who had given me.. Read More

In Depth post #1

This is my intro post to my project, and to my mentor. My project is on web design, utilizing HTML 5 coding to achieve these goals. This first week, I plan to start learning some basics, and making sure that I can find a mentor who can meet face-to-face with me. I currently have a person who is willing to help and who is experienced with coding (he hosted a computer club teaching this kind.. Read More

Document of Learning

Document of Learning This is the document of learning for my ZAP Project on Political bias. Little sidenote, I apologize for getting this out so late; I really regret not getting this posted sooner. Baseline Before starting this project, I did not have any knowledge of the subject. I chose it because it seemed like an interesting topic to look at because of how often one can identify political bias in daily lives. The opinions,.. Read More

Trouble in Paris

July 1st, 1789 The people are angry. They’ve been mistreated for far too long, forced to stand by while the ruling class pillages their food, money, and land. Revolution is in the air, it is time for a new order to be established. I have heard whispers of dissent, and I feel that the time is coming for France to be handed over to the people. I am interested to see where this goes, perhaps.. Read More

Socials Midterm

  Big Idea My big idea is that ‘collective identity is constructed, and can change over time.’ I chose this because it was the idea that I agreed most with, and it shows itself in lots of history books. To me, collective identity is just as flexible and fluid as personal identity. The choices of a nation and its history and culture are as unique as any person’s. It’s also an idea that I can..
