Where I’m from essay

My Paper

The writing process

The process of writing this essay wasn’t too difficult as my dad was very open about explaining how he got to where he is today. I honestly enjoyed talking to my dad about how he grew up, he was very easy to talk to. Some of the difficulties for me is remembering what my dad said to me, sometimes I found myself forgetting his story, so i would ask him again.

Core competences

Collaboration Prompts:

· I show others that I truly value their contributions by…

(I showed this by making a essay about my dads accomplishments.)

Personal Awareness and Responsibility Prompts:

· When I need to boost my mood or re-focus, I…

(I asked my dad more questions if I ran out of ideas.)

Critical and Reflective Thinking Prompts:

· Others find my feedback useful because I…

(I give them proper feedback and i am 100 percent honest when i was editing peoples essays.)

Collaboration Prompts:

· When I need to work collaboratively with people I don’t know well, I…

( When I needed people to edit my essay asked some people I didn’t really know that well and communicated with them.) My goal for that is maybe to ask other people in my class next time because the people I asked I kind of knew except for one.

CPR Reflection

What was something you learned that you didn’t know or consider before?

I learned how to properly do CPR. I always see CPR procedures in shows and movies, but I was never taught how to actually do it and the steps you have to take before doing CPR. Those would be like checking in on them, example: tapping there shoulder (steps to take before doing CPR on somebody).

What is a key takeaway from the Theory or Practical CPR unit?

To never let anyone die with out trying to help, you should try to help people when there dying even if you don’t know them. Another takeaway would be that I learned to do CPR which could help a dying person.

How does this unit connect to the nutrition unit learned previously?

It talks about health, like heart attacks and the effects it has on your body.

I can analyze evidence to make judgements.

I do this a lot with group work and I give them advice.

I can form new ideas to create new things. I can also build on the ideas of others.

Since I do a lot of group work with others I can create/build ideas well.

I need to work on this more because sometimes I find myself off task
