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.
I began this project by choosing the lyrics from a rap song that I enjoy. The one of the song’s themes was about changes. I made this the theme of my project and I began my search for five other poems that were about change. I made a power point and choose pictures that represented each poem. I like how the colors and pictures go together in my visual representation. For next time, I would keep in mind the poetic devices when choosing the poems because it was hard to find them. I learned that I am good at understanding poetry and music from this project.
