Hello, this post is for my mPOL (Mid Year Presentation Of Learning). A reflection on semester 1 and my growth as a learner. There are 2 things I am looking to findwith this reflection.
The first is: How have I demonstrated growth as a learner so far this year?
The second is: How can I sharpen my Learning Plan to ensure I will reach my learning targets by the end of this school year?
This is my semester 1 catalogue of learning:
3 Humanities Projects:
- People And The Environment (Letter about Environmental issues in BC)
- Revolutions On Trial (Winter Exhibition)
- Working With Words (Poetry eBook)
I am most proud of my improvement in the learning process from humanities. It has become a lot clearer since September.
3 Scimatics Projects:
- Game Laws Exponents (Creating a board game based on exponents and chance)
- Correlation Vs Causation (Creating surveys and identifying the results as either a correlation or a causation)
- Chemistry Stories (Animation video on chemical bonding)
I am most proud of my improvement with understanding concepts. It has been a lot easier and faster since September.
This is my full learning plan:
2 Biggest competencies I’ve grown on as a learner in semester 1:
- Positive Personal and Cultural Identity
My communication has always been pretty good, however this year I have seen it improve. Mostly with “Working With Words”, a poetry project where we wrote and analyzed poetry.
Positive Personal and Cultural Identity:
A Personal and Cultural Identity is a perception of ones self based on their experiences, and worldview.
My entire grade 9 experience has been shaping my identity, which I have not yet fully learnt. But I am beginning to understand that it is a very complex topic.
I still have some time to go before I accomplish my competencies, but I believe I am on the right track. So that is my demonstration of learning. Which leaves me with my final point:
How can I sharpen my Learning Plan to ensure I will reach my learning targets by the end of this school year?
I can do this through revision. My learning plan isn’t permanent and I can always make changes to fit my current standards. Specifically with my Systems, Habits, and Dispositions, if I no longer need something I can remove it, and if I need something new I can add to it.
That is my mPOL 2022.
