Transcript: Jack's Journey in Room Dictation Dictation choice "Her face gone flat, that means I said a wrong thing but I don't know which."(Jack pg.14) This is just a small example of the incorrect grammatical phrasing used by Jack. Emma used this dictation because, as a 5 year old child would speak you would expect him to think and talk like one. The dictation adds immersion into the book to be behind the eyes of Jack and his experiences. MOWAW created: By putting us into Jack's shoes, Donoghue shows the reality that a child's thoughts are 100% innocent and easily manipulated. Jack takes one lesson taught to him from Ma and believes it to be nothing but the truth. And Innocent being that he holds no grudges to anyone and knows only to love. This is important to the character and the story as we see others try to understand Jack but are meeting challenges like his grammar issues, while us readers know his true intentions. Personification Personification Jack seems to call everything in Room his friend and gives the inanimate objects genders and feelings. Once outside of Room, he no longer continues this action. MOWAW created: Outside of Room Jack has slowly absorbed the wonders of this almost foreign world to him. Losing these habits of personifying objects is a sign of Jack's transformation to the new world. "I jump onto Rocker to look at Watch, he says 07:14. I can skate-board on Rocker without holding onto her"(Jack pg 4) Tooth represents Ma and coming out into the world while rug represents Jack and staying in Room. The room has been jacks home but to mom it is a horrible place that brings back terrible memories. Tooth and Rug Allusions Allusions There are many allusions in Room. This is because Jack being a child can understand more things if he can see how they relate. Old nick , the kidnapper and rapist is a Santa Claus figure. By coming in the night and bringing "gifts" for "Sunday treat" he is an evil Santa Claus Old Nick Ma wanted to pass on her faith that God is the provider and not Old Nick (nickname for Satan). Jack even says that food comes from "Baby Jesus in the fields in Outside". Although Jacks knowledge of religion is a little abstract, it still creates meaning in their days and keeps hope alive. Religion Jack's learning of religion and references to Jesus and St.Paul Paradoxes Paradoxes "Ma knows everything except the things she doesn't remember right" (Jack, 9) There are a number of topics that Ma teaches Jack, such as Religion and germs. She only teaches him the things she remembers which is hard because Jack continues to ask questions that should have a logical answer but Ma could only muster half of the truth or even a lie, like "outside" being space. The problem arises when things contradict what he has been told like seeing the mice enter the Room even though he sees mice on TV which he believed all things on TV weren't real. https://www.gradesaver.com/room/study-guide/literary-elements https://jazzyj33.wordpress.com/ https://www.google.com https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/59040/10-mind-boggling-paradoxes https://www.emmadonoghue.com/books/novels/room-the-novel.html Cited Sources Sources Meta cognitive paragraphs Reflective Paragraph Jack I chose diction because it was what stood out the most from all the other books I have read. Reading the words of a 5 year old was both mind straining and unique. The personification was strange to me because I never thought of assigning a gender to a clock before, I contrasted how he stopped doing that to create a MOWAW. If you notice the colors of the borders on the main story blocks, they are in the order and same colors of the front page of the book, this made it a bit less random and creative. I was proud of the originality of the descriptions I created. Overall I think the presentation looks neat and creative. Jack's reflection Garrett Room is a very unique book in the fact that it is narrated by a 5 year old. Throughout this project I have tried to make things appear as teaching a young child. The use of color and simplistic text are something that was a stretch to accomplish but worth while in the end. By doing this I was able to sympathize with Ma more and see that with little resources teaching is very hard. Garrett's Reflection

Transcript: ROOM PRESENTATION PRESENTED TO AR.TAHIR KHAN KHALDI AR. WAJIH-UL-HASSAN MOAZZAM - WATTO BARM-F16-042 HISTORY HISTORY OF ROOM: Historically, the use of rooms dates at least to early Minoan cultures about 2200 BC, where excavations at Akrotiri on Santorini reveal clearly defined rooms within certain structures the cave represents people who believe that knowledge comes from what we see and hear in the world – empirical evidence. ROOM A part or division of a building enclosed by walls, floor, and ceiling. "he wandered from room to room" What is room? Concept of the Room Design Method is that all sprinklers within a room will operate, along with some sprinklers in adjacent rooms of light hazard occupancy, if the openings aren't protected ROOM METHODOLOGY : Function and Livability Scale and Proportion Light Pattern and Texture Color Significant and Relevant ornaments PRINCIPLE OF ROOM In your home, if a room isn't laid out to help you accomplish the things that need to be done in it, it won't get used. The first step of any room re-do is deciding what will you want to room to feel like, have done in it etc. Function and Livability: This is a more complex element, but very important. Basically, everything in the room has to relate to one another. The size and structure of the furniture relates to the size of the room, the light fixtures depend on the size of the room and furniture size. Even the art on the walls has to relate. It's a domino effect. Scale and Proportion: First you have to start with the natural light you have coming in. Then it's time to decide what artificial light to include based on the function or tasks being performed in the room. Lighting plays a huge role; it can impact color, activity, and wellness. Light: NATURAL LIGHT: The combination of these two things adds richness. They add depth. They add dimension. So many times if we're looking to make something feel more expensive, pattern and texture can do that. Replacing things like pillows, curtains, or throws are often an easy way to change the look and feel of a room without a complete redesign. Pattern and Texture: Color acts as an enhancer. It can be vibrant or lift/subdue a mood. Color plays a huge role in bringing a certain energy. For example, if you view your bedroom as a place to relax use a color that is calm and soothing instead of a bright red. Color: These are the personal items that add meaning and character to a room. The photographs or specific art that you have hanging on the wall, it makes a space uniquely your own. Significant and Relevant ornaments: Space Line Form Shape Pattern Texture ELEMENTS OF INTERIOR DESIGN: SPACE LINE FORM AND SHAPE PATTERN AND TEXTURE THANK-YOU :)
