Physical Education provides students of all skill levels an opportunity to perform various physical activities (games, sports, exercises) that contribute to a healthy lifestyle. Students learn these skills through practice and ultimately apply them during an athletic sport. “The goal is to get students physically active. Not everyone is going to be a star athlete. It’s about doing YOUR PERSONAL BEST.” FitnessGram specifically allows students to discover fitness levels and accept physical activity as an important part of life.

Effort and practice are key components to be a successful physical education student.

Printmaking, Trimester 2, Final Projects – Feminism

‘A woman’s place is in the kitchen’, Takaeya Joseph

‘Iron my shirt woman’, Takaeya Joseph

Because a woman’s work is never done, and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious and we’re the first to get fired, and what we look like is more important than what we do, and if we get raped it’s our fault and if we get beaten we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we’re nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we’re nymphos and if we don’t we’re frigid and if we love women it’s because we can’t get a “real” man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we’re neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect childcare we’re selfish and if we stand up for our rights we’re aggressive and “unfeminine” and if we don’t we’re typical weak females and if we want to get married we’re out to trap a man and if we don’t we’re unnatural and because we still can’t get an adequate, safe, contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can’t cope or don’t want a pregnancy we’re made to feel guilty about abortion and…for lots of other reasons, we are part of the women’s liberation movement. ~Author unknown, quoted in The Torch, 14 September 1987

Sexist means having attitudes or behaviors that promote stereotyping of social roles based on gender. When you believe a person’s gender determines his or her physical or mental abilities in many areas like driving, logic, math, artistic sensibility, etc, etc, you are being sexist. When you believe there are “boy toys” and “girl toys” you are thinking like a sexist. This is not to say there are no differences between the sexes or that more girls than boys will enjoy certain activities or toys or types of movies. But by the time you go from that understanding to assuming that not only is it inherent in women or girls to be good at A because they are female, and simply can’t do B for the same reason, and should be prevented at all cost from trying since it is a foregone conclusion that they have not the ability, you have gone deep into sexist territory.

I basically picked this topic because I feel like we live in a very sexist world and it will never change. Society shows women a certain way and other people believe if society can portray it as the right way to live then it is the right way. I basically am tired of people saying that woman belong in the kitchen. Or women belong in the house I wanted to portray my hatred for sexism through art. I think that this is one of the topics that I could go on and on about because of the way so many people live. Like for example how could we tell that the typical house wife is satisfied with her life? We won’t ever know because she has to much respect for her husband to speak up. It’s like she’s stuck in a world where it is impossible to move up. I also picked this topic because if I grow up to have children I don’t want my children to be sexist. I don’t want my Daughter to think that she has to listen to a man or be a house wife. I want her to be able to go out in the world and get a job and work hard and get paid for how hard she works. If I have a son I want him to be able to know how to treat his wife and let her make her own choices.

The reason behind me sharing this topic is to show that sexism is happening in our everyday life and I want everyone to know that it’s okay to be yourself and follow your own rules.

”If you can’t feed a hundreds people, then just feed one.” – Mother Teresa

“Another country is scrap is another country is meal”- The New York Times states that wasting foods is something everyone know they shouldn’t do, but do it anyway.

We choose this topic because of all the food we have seen being wasted and how when you go to the a restaurant they pile your plate with food knowing that you’re not going to eat everything, while daily, in the same city, we come in contact with people who are suffering from severe hunger.

Restaurants throw out so much food daily, untouched, just because “they are afraid of someone getting sick from it and filing a law suit.

In our print making class we choose to contrast hunger and obesity. Two of our prints represent how people eat much more food than they need and how they greedily pick an amount of food they know their not going to eat. To illustrate this, we drew big, obese thighs and arms, filled with food, exploding out of them. To contrast these two prints about obesity, our hunger print has a skeleton showing empty plate with falling utensils, indicating that he is hungry.

According to the New York Times, “The department of agriculture estimates that recovering just 5% of food that is wasted could feed four million of people a day; recovering 25% would feed 20 million people.”

Our process in this class was unbalanced. Our weakness consisted of an initial lack of imagination and drawing skills. We didn’t really know how to draw objects that involve shades and light, on paper. Priyanka, our teacher, taught us how to draw and design our concepts, and apply our every day life and experiences, to our art. She taught us how to make art more relevant to reality.

What we want the audience to realize from this is that hunger is not just in Africa or in those poor countries far away from here. Hunger exists here, in New York City, when your walk into McDonald and a homeless person holds the door for you and asks you for $0.25, or the people sleeping on the floor on the street ask for your help.
