My First Year

My Grade 9 Year

My grade 9 year was an amazing experience. The high school experience was much different than my middle school experience in a better way. Since we didn’t stay with the same teacher and class the whole day I was able to make a lot more new friends from other middle schools. before first coming to the school I was told that the high school teachers were much more strict and meaner than the middle school teachers and now as my grade 9 year is coming to an end I can confidently say that those were the biggest lies ever told to me about high school. My favorite class this grade 9 year for is probably socials because the class is very engaging and it was interesting learning about the history of this country. My grade 9 year has been an amazing year and I cant wait for my grade 10 year.

My Useful Educational Website

My useful educational website is Youtube.com. Youtube is a place where you can find any information you need. If you want to know how to do something you can find a video teaching you how to do the thing. people find it easier to have someone teach you something instead of reading instructions and that’s why i think the Youtube is an great educational website.

My Useful Educational video

the is a very educational video made by the youtuber Oversimplified. this youtuber was the creator of this video and many other like this. The reason why I like this Youtube channel is because it over simplifies historical events making it easier to study for tests and quiz’s.

My Educational Image

This was a picture that I took during the flame test lab that I did in my science class. It was a very interesting lab seeing how the chemicals on the que-tip affected the color of the fire. This was the first lab that I did in my grade 9 year and it was also my favorite lab that I’ve done.

My Inspirational Quote

Reflection Questions- Is violence justified during a revolution/ protests

i was able to use perplexity.ai as a tool for finding arguments for this project as well as the support for those argument.

B) How did you ensure that the work you created was still your own, rather than just a product of AI

i made sure to write absolutely all of the info that perplexity gave in my own words as well as making sure that i sited all of my info that didn’t come up into my head while making this project

C) Did you agree with the position you had to argue? Why or why not?

I do agree very much of the position that I had during the making of this project. I believe that there is a moral code that humans should have that prevents violence unless its necessary.

Core Competency Reflection

I use evidence to make judgements or decisions as demonstrated in this project. I was able to make great arguments as well as having great supports for each one of my arguments. i was also able to cite all of my arguments that didn’t come from my head as well as the supports for those arguments

One of the ways I ensure my group is clear on the common purpose is to check up on my partner during work time to make sure we are both on task and getting work done. I also offer to help my partner whenever he needs help.

Chemistry Unit Core Competency Reflection

The pictures above are pictures of my most proud assignment in the chemistry unit the flame test lab. What’s shown in this picture is the result of what happened after we dripped the chemicals on tip of the q-tip and put it into the fire. You can see in the picture how the chemicals on the q-tip changed the colour of the fire. It was really amazing seeing the colors change with the different chemicals, this was my first time doing an experiment in the lab and it was super fun.

The chemistry assignment that I’m the most proud of is the flame lab test project. it was very interesting and fun seeing all of the different chemicals change the color of each flame, me and my partner had a really fun time doing this lab. The core competency that was a strength for me this unit was collaborating and communication. I was able to communicate and collaborate well with my lab partner throughout the lab experiment me and my lab partner worked very well throughout the lab. An area for growth and improvement would be to hand in my home work on time. A way that I could improve this would be to manage my days better so I can get that homework done on time.

The first thing I learned was keeping your audience engaged in what your speaking about. you can keep your audience engaged by having good eye contact and good body language.

It is important to remember who benefits from an advertisement because if the people that benefit from the advertisement are bad people then you buying there product would be like you supporting them.

Choose one form of persuasion and explain why it is effective in persuading you/an audience: logical, ethical, emotional

A effective way of persuasion would be logical because when using that way of persuasion all of the reasons to buy the product are all logical reasons with proof behind why they are logical reasons.

An effective advertisement technique would be the bandwagon technique because people are more inclined to buy a product if everyone is using it and if its popular.
