Life Saving Measures

3 Takeaways from the Naloxone presentations

  1. You cannot get arrested for possession of drugs if you call for help for a someone.
  2. Some signs of an overdose are if someone cannot be woken up, cold, dizzy, very small pupils, and discolored lips.
  3. Naloxone temporarily reverses an opioid overdose.

    Reflect on the impact these sessions/topics may have on your life. 

    Drug overdoses are a big problem in BC. It is good to know that you can’t get in trouble when you report an overdose but I wonder if someone who is on drugs would be thinking clearly to make the call.

    Critical and Reflective Thinking Competency Reflection 

    I can analyze evidence to make judgements. 

    I feel that I can listen and do research to get information and I can make decisions. I base these decisions on what I think is right for me.

    Desert Island Project

    Desert Island Artifact


    Type the description of the project here.


    I can inquire into and present on topics of interest and topics related to my studies.

    Doing this project I researched many different styles of government.

    I can understand how my values shape my choices.

    I know my morals and my values impact my choices especially on punishment and laws around food and labor

    My values most certainly change my choices on government in my project. I know that the way I grew up and my ideology has a big impact on most of my choices especially when it comes to government and law

    I can develop a body of creative work over time.

    I can create an outline and put together my previous knowledge to create an assignment like this. I made a project overtime that was pretty good

    I can tell the difference between facts and opinion

    My opinions are things that I believe but may not have a specific answer to. Facts are things that are proven and have proof to back it up.


    I can find it easy to be part of a group.

    I should work with groups more in order to get better at understanding others ideas.


    How did I create a government highlighting ethical judgments about controversial decisions, legislation, or policy.

    I just thought what would work best with a small group of people and I thought about what we learned in class. The needs of the group need to be taken into account or the society falls apart. It would be interesting to think about how my ideas would be different if there was a different number of people in the group.

    Positive Learner Identity

    I’m good in groups because I can always do my part of the project and I’m good at listening and helping people with their work. A good example of this was in Ms. Razzell’s socials 11 class me, Jack, and Stefano did a project and I made sure everyone was set up and ready to present.

    Core Competency Reflection

    Being a good listener and being good in groups is an important skill to have because it can build connections and it can bring out the best in people. Being good with a group of people can be very important in post secondary or a job.

    Social Studies Reflection.

    I’m the most proud of this work because it was everything I learned in 1 project. I enjoyed learning about different landmarks because I’ve been to all of them but I never learned about them. This assignment showcases my development in continuity and change competency because I covered the landmarks continuity and changes very well. This project taught me about the city and its landmarks. I could continue to finish projects before the deadline so I can be more organized. This project shows my communication competency. I communicated well by writing about the different landmarks and going into good detail.

    Independent Novel Study Review

    Apt Pupil

    Apt Pupil | Book by Stephen King | Official Publisher Page | Simon &  Schuster

    The Writing Process

    Writing the novel study was easy for me because I enjoyed the book. Sometimes I had trouble finding the quote I was looking for. I overcame this by remembering the general time the quote was said and went back and read for it. I enjoyed talking about the story. I did not enjoy finding the quotes to support my statements.

    Core Competency Reflection

    1. My strategy for collecting relevant information for specific tasks include searching the general time in the story the quote was said and rereading that section to find it.
    2. I compiled and synthesized information to draw reasonable conclusions when I summarized my novel review to do the presentation for the class. I didn’t just read my novel review to the class I summarized it to make it more interesting.
    3. I am willing to explore controversial issues such as the evil in people (which this book was about), in order to work toward change in myself and the world.
    4. My goal is to work with criteria to improve my work because sometimes I do what I think the instructions are and my work would be better if I focused on the criteria that is given. I will read the criteria before I begin to work.

    The Importance of Feedback

    My Logo

    Reflection on Competencies and Content

    It is important to use feedback to make changes and improve your product because you have to appeal to the customer. Listening to feedback will help make things better. People will not listen to feedback if it is not positive. That’s why we use the TAG format for feedback. We tell what we like, ask a question and give a suggestion. By telling what we like, the person is already in a good mood to listen when the suggestion comes.

    Core Competency Reflection

    1. I can show a sense of accomplishment and joy. I take pride in my work and  myself.

          I choose this competency because I was proud of the logo and I was happy with Ms Caldwell’s comments.

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

    I choose this as my goal to work on. Sometimes I have trouble coming up with ideas. I will work on this by taking risks and trying new things.

    Core Competency Self Assessment


    Me and my partner distributed our tasks well. He did the research and I did the writing and it worked well. We did not disagree on anything we worked really well! It was helpful to the group dynamic because we got to work well and had a great time. We worked together like PB&J. We communicated well and we checked the work and decided that it was good to hand in.

    February Reflection

    1.    Areas of Strength:

    I can self advocate.  I valued my ideas and accomplishments when I volunteered to do my Mixed Marketing Price presentation first.  I really liked my project and I wanted to show the class.

    Areas of Growth:

    I would like to work on managing stress.  I get stressed when there is homework to do.  I procrastinate and I avoid getting started.  Often, I realize that the work doesn’t take too long (after it is done).  I will try not to overthink about having the work to do and be calm about.  Maybe I will give myself one hour after dinner to rest and set a timer to start work after that.
