tPOL ‘23

“Thank you for coming to my presentation of learning. I am the expert on my own learning. I am also responsible and accountable for my own learning. You can expect me to give an honest evaluation of my progress. We will discuss my strengths and opportunities for growth. Thank you in advance for listening and for offering feedback that I can use to improve as a learner.”

Its that time of year again, where we have to show our growth as learners through this past school year. We do this by created a tPOL – Transitional Presentation of Learning – to present to our parents and a teacher.

Why do you feel you are ready to advance to the next grade level?

That was the driving question of this years tPOL, I’ll answer this by showing evidence of progression and improvement throughout the year, FAILS and how I learnt from them, and some goals I set from the start of the year.

So let’s get started…


Throughout this year I have updated my humanities learning plan and changed my goal for my final grade, mother old grade I was aiming for was an Accomplished ☀️. But through the year I’ve exceeded my expectations and surpassed that with extending work so I changed it to an Extending 🌈

  • In bullet points, I’ve basically exceeded my own goal to reach 🌈

A Memorial in Danger | Juno Beach Project 🪖

We underwent an extensive process of crafting and refining multiple drafts to achieve the final version of our essay. It served as an excellent exercise in honing the “communicating” core competency, as we skillfully employed strategies like appealing to emotions (pathos) and employing logical reasoning (logos) to effectively persuade our audience and make a compelling argument for the significance of preserving the Juno Beach Centre

I give myself props on how I was able to take feedback from teachers, peers and parents to create the best piece of work I could. In my opinion, this is one of the best pieces of writing I’ve made.

Points of Learning

  • Improvement at applying feedback and making revisions
  • Use of Ethos, Pathos and Logos / Improvement in writing

Lies and Incongruencies 🤥

After our Juno Beach project, I knew the level that I could work at in humanities so I attempted to replicate that with these pieces of writing. Creating work at level is difficult for me and it takes up a lot of time and revisions, and during this time of this project my schedule was packed I mean I had a tournament in Calgary and I was balancing 3 basketball practices out in Langley every single week. I had to balance school and sports and honestly, it was pretty stressful for me and I had countless late nights


Points of Learning

  • Found out the level of work I need to be at consistently to maintain my goals
  • Need to time manage better with sports and friends
  • Find way to plan ahead (Do homework on the hour drive to practice, go into tutorial time)


I maintained my goal of extending this year 🌈



What I learnt during the process

  • Required very good planning and communication to create, plan, script, record and publish an entire podcast series
  • Needed problem-solving to fix errors and mistakes in podcast after recording using editing software
  • Figured out new ways to make my podcast better, (Ai to enhance voice, Descript to remove uhms, uhs and buts)


Improvements I’d make for next time

  • Use of more sound effects to better tell a story or portray a image
  • Longer and more in-depth episodes, including more interviews and extra segments
  • More emotion portrayed while speaking


I maintained my goal of extending this year 🌈

I found this class very helpful because I found out for sure what I want to do and go into. I decided I want to pursue physiotherapy or kinesiology. In this class, I learnt about what needed to do, what classes I would have to take and what some good universities are to pursue this dream. I gathered all the information I could and put it into this craft document. This class also prepared us for the future by helping us create professional resumes and business cards

In the end, I had a great year. I had a lot of fun in my classes and learn a lot through some excited memories. I enjoyed the work we did and I’m proud of everything I accomplished. Some projects were better than others, but they all taught me important things for Grade 11 and beyond. Even know I am leaving PLP I will continue to carry all of the things PLP has taught me through the years into mainstream schooling. Thanks for reading my post on my tPOLS!

Any questions?
