About this Unit

During the summative for the ILOHL Unit, it was challenging in the field of discussion and interesting in the area of recording. I had learned a lot of important concepts during this unit by understanding the importance of giving example and proves to support my ideas during a debate, another is by understanding the best by recording even though it is not my first time using it already.

Progress vs Privacy – Tricking or lying to someone in order to achieve a goal – Wilson Chen

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a story of pain and suffer, and a story of a victim that were trucked others fir their own benefit because of her human rights. In the sociality today, people lying to achieve a goal happens frequently. People often lied to others is because to protect themself or other, one of the example may be student telling it’s parents that he/she had completed the homework, by telling the parents the lie that he/she did completed the homework, student is now free (Do anything he/she wants) and complete the homework in his/her spare time. This is a simple lie, and it kind of similar with the case of Henrietta Lacks, is it really worth lying, think about the perspective of the student’s parents.

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
― Soren Kierkegaard

The quote by Soren Kierkegaard explains the truth that Every one of us lives in a lie, for example, the government. Our body would want to make it true but mind and body are never connected. In the story of Henrietta Lacks, who suffers pain, her body isn’t fighting the cancer cell-like what her minds do.

The last example is the definition of Joker. Everyone is like Joker, inside and outside are different. We always puts our benefit factor at the front. From inside point of view (Mental), some people is to get rich or be popular, some is to get into a good college. While the outside point of view may be Black and white, no future, hope. These two ideas often construct, and most of the time it only occur similar in a file or act. To conclude, we have human rights, we can be, do, whatever we want. But, is lying to others really helping you on the road of success? 

Completing the Crucible

What I Learned:

During the Crucible unit, I learn about the Christian culture in the 16th century and how people were treated. This is the first time that I’ve been timed in summative which gave me lots of pressure but practice makes it stronger, with the understanding of sketch note, now I can use another way to take notes.

Unit 2 Reflection

Is Abigail innocent or not?

In the crucible, Auther Miller uses Abigale to represent the hate that would be tricky to know. In the Crucible, Abigail Williams is Parris’s Niece and Proctor’s affair, as the Niece of Parris she had to keep her reputation highly. Honestly speaking, Abigail has to be blamed for all the events because without her covering up for Parris, the story wouldn’t have ended like this. “We did dance, Uncle, and when you leaped out of the bush so suddenly, Betty was frightened and then she fainted. And there’s the whole of it” (9) (Having problem inserting Images)

Abigail needs to be blamed for every event because she planed every event, for example, she made Marry Warren hide a needle in Elizebeth’s Doll which means she is not a victim in the story of Crucible since she has the power to control others.
People may argue that Abigail is forced to be the way she is like because of the lie she made at the beginning of the book, she was forced to continue to lie or else she would be hung like Proctor.

Who has the most power in Act 3?

At the end of act 3 when Abigail Williams won the court by her acting skills and Elizebeth just when everyone that Abigail had the most power, Danforth was sitting aside and laughing in the heart. Danforth is the judge of the court therefore he can decide how ever he wants as long as its reasons able. “No uncorrupted man may fear this court, Mr. Hale! None! To Giles: You are under arrest un contempt of this court. Now sit you down and take counsel with yourself, or you will be set in the jai until you decide to answer all questions.” (Danforth, 91) Judge always have the highest power maybe not in the supermarket but in the court, Danforth uses his power to push Files into jail. In the 16th century, judges jobs are more likely to control punishment and Danforth who is very religious would only believe in Abigale…

The truth of Marry Warren

Marry Warren, a slave, women with under the name of Abigale and a follower of witchcraft. In the Crucible Arthur Miller uses lots of quotes to slowly reveal the truth of Marry. This includes the time when Marry warren say to Proctor that she can help Elizabeth to prove her innocent of the toll, however, Marry give other answers in court. “No Sir” “Not Sure” (98, Marry). This is the Answer from Marry when Procter and Danforth asked her about what happened on that night, Marry can only follow Abigale’s instruction because she is also one of the ladies that went to the forest at the begging of the book.
(Marry is beside Abigale)

This reminds me of a quote by S.E. Hinton who wrote the book The Outsider,  “I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me.”. In the book, lie was used very often by Hinton and lies are often explaining a situation. In the crucible, if Marry does not lie than Proctor would have killed her. She was finally lying again when Abigale Williams and others are in the curt that would protect her from Procter’s attack, until then she was unkillable that why she lies. 


(Why People Lie | Kim Serota | TEDxOaklandUniversity)

To conclude, people lie when their life is being threatened. From the example of Marry Warren from the Crucible and Abigale Williams to the example from Hinton, I believe this information is good enough for me to state lies was made when lives are threatened. Arther Miller also gives more example in the book from other characters including Proctor and Giles, Elizabeth and Rebecca, however, they do not lie often, therefore, people does not have much prove to accuse them.


The frustration about blatant lies someone tells and everyone else believes – Wilson Chen

In the Crucible, Arthur Miller uses Abigale to present people would make lies to protect themself from reputation and witchcraft. Abigale had lie throughout the story, from the begin of the book when Abigale’s uncle Paris had caught Abigale dance and running around naked in the forest. Abigale begins to lie and try to stay as clean as possible, later when people are having a church, she and the other girl had to lie to protect themselves. This is nothing special, according to the articles form the ScienceDirect which stated “Lies are told for one of two reasons: either the deceptive person believes they have more to gain from lying than from telling the truth; or the deceptive person is incapable of discerning what the truth is, either temporarily or owing to some permanent mental defect. Lies may be divided into two distinct motivational categories: prosocial lies that are constructed to benefit others; and antisocial lies that are selfish.”

With the quotes from Abigale on page 11 “No one was naked! You mistake yourself, uncle (Parris)” Abigale. Another example “I told him everything; he knows now, he knows everything we.” This quote is a lie, Abigail wants to be safe and she is pushing the responsibility ty away, she wants Betty to stop acting. Even if it isn’t drama, she will make it as drama. The last example is “Oh, she’s only gone silly somehow.” This is just another example Arthur Miller shows Abigile or “Human”/Person would do anything to save their reputation.

To conclude, Arthur Miller had to use Abigile to show the truth of humanity. As one of the readers who knowns who brought Betty out to the forest to dance and sing. From the types of action of Lie that Abigail had made, this is a true example of Selfish lie.


In this assignment, I had persuaded my audience to stop touching their phone while working. With today’s technology, we can get distracted easily and as a student, we can’t be distracted or else our academic level would drop. If we turn the phone or other distractive devices off while working on our classwork we would not get distracted easily since it is not easy to access.


I am an Expert in Following Instructions

I am an expert in following instructions. This wouldn’t have happened without the 2 actions that support me to complete the mission. The first action is thinking, this is the first part of the following instructions Than the second action which is the Action, this is the part where you begin to complete the mission giving by your instructor.

The first part is Thinking, and this contains receiving the instruction, and planning how you will complete the instruction. Once you receive any type of instruction all you do is telling yourself that you can complete it because most of the time what seems impossible are possible so believe in yourself and try your best. This step will make you forget those thinking in your head that It is Impossible, without this image in your mind to stop you from giving up. Of course, most of the people wonder is the instruction given correct, is it possible? Well, if it is given by your teacher than I recommend you to “Just Do It”. Than the second part of the Thinking is the planning before starting this step I recommend you to look at the key features in the assignment given and they are due date/complete time and requirement for example in a test it is the rubric that you have to look out for and in a Math test it might be “Show All the Working” that you are looking out for. It is very very important to look at those things before you start to plan your work because they will affect the result of your complete work. Now, planning for a route. Now I think the action plan would be the best beginners to use and just for reference, the action plan is a procedure that would guild you thorough out your assignment/mission. This action plan should be simple and contain all the important feature that you were told to complete. After planning the plan, you will move on to the next step which is to Action.

The last part is the action, it very easy and all you have to do is to follow your action plan. Some problem I faced while completing a task is being distracted, it may be your friend or even video games. Now remember it is not their fault if you got into trouble, it is you who should control yourself. To conclude, with the two major steps that I had to provide. You should be able to complete your task as soon as possible, remember always think before you start the action of planning and completing an instruction.
