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.
I thought this project went well. I enjoyed trying new things and working with new video software and learning about different courses. It was difficult to work everything out at first but once I started it got easier. I enjoyed my first video more because it was easier to make and edit.
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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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
- 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.
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.
Reflection on Collaboration and Conflict Resolution
I recognize that there are different points of view and I can disagree respectfully
I can work with others to achieve a common goal
Five most common to approaches to resolving conflicts are as follows
I collaborate decently with others if we have a common interest
My current approach to solving problems is to talk about it, ignore things and let them pass, try to calm the other person down, and come to an agreement
I could probably make myself wait to talk to them so I don’t get mad
Express my own needs clearly, focus on specific issues without generalizing or escalating the situation, and listen effectively
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.
I was able to identify the problem with the first electromagnets easily. They were not very strong. The solution was to use insulated wire so more wire could be wrapped around the medal carrying more charge. I was able to build my project from a backwards design by researching and taking notes on my checklist. I was able to dream of the future where electromagnets will power rockets and make hover cars with similar technology to the maglev trains they now propel. I am satisfied with the results of my design and solutions. In the future, I would would have asked more questions when Mr Basso was there to help.
Reflection Digital Footprint
One of the things that is in my digital footprint is my Instagram account where I post my own reviews of rap albums. This is an example of constructive criticism. I try to offer well-reasoned opinions about albums, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly way.
Also, I am cautious about sharing personal information in all three of my Instagram accounts. I make sure my location is turned off and the only personal information available is my name.
If I were to post or like something offensive, that would be an embarrassment to my family. As well, it would hurt my chances of getting into post secondary school and getting a job in the future. It is important to be careful with what you share online.
