Core Competency Self-Reflection (Communication)

I worked together with my group to answer a series of questions on the whiteboard in class. We had to work together to ensure that the questions were drawn properly then answered correctly. We bounced our ideas off of each other, and made sure that everybody was included and that no ideas were immediately dismissed without consideration.

Core Competency: Communication

My Digital Photobook

This project involved designing a photobook on Microsoft Word about something that we are interested in. I choose to make mine about certain books that impacted me as a reader because it is a topic that I enjoy. I show that I can communicate purposefully, using forms and strategies I have practiced since I was able to present to the class clearly about a topic that I was familiar with, using strategies that I’ve developed through years of presenting for school. Something that challenged me regarding this core competency is that presenting makes me nervous, especially in front of so many people. This skill is important in daily life because it is crucial to be able to successfully communicate your ideas in both a school setting and a work setting, and this includes in a presenting format since many jobs will require you to speak in front of a group.
