Positive Learner Identity

Group of people. Created with adobe illustrator.

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.

Independent Novel Study Review

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.
