Thank you in advance for listening and for offering feedback that I can use to improve as a learner.”
As you know I dont like learning and I dont put much effort into my work I usually just do the bare minimum. so my goal for for next semester is to put all of my effort into my work I also want to take more control over my learning by not getting distracted as much and asking for help when I need it. Asking for help more often was one of my goals last year and I’ve been working on it but it could be better so putting my hand up more often is on my goals list. To take control over my learning and become the best learner possible I have a goals list on this list I have: asking for help, paying attention ie not talking to my freinds, and putting 100 percent of my effort into my work. To complete these goals I am going to have them writing down were I can see them. and if I find my self not folling these goals I will stop what im doing and regroup and get back on track. I feel like I could do better at my social awareness and responsibility skill becasue I think that being collaborative in groups is very important later on and will help me throughout high school. To work on this skill whenever im in a group with anybody I will engage and help them to the best of my abilities. My most improved on skill would have to be my personal awareness and responsibility skill becasue from the beginning of the year to now I have relized that I am in control of my body and actions better. I have aslo found that I can catch my self before I say or do somthing dumb.
Humanities This semester in Humanities we had two projects: Storm The Barricades and The Power Of Geography. Both these projects stretched my skills to the max. The power of geography made me so tired and sick of doing work that for the start of Storm the Barricades I didn’t want to do anything, but halfway through I started to actually pay attention. Paying attention helped me become engaged in the work and my work was so much better. I took that energy and I put it into the two final posts for these projects and I made my two favourite posts that I think are the best ones I have ever made. For next semester my goal is to take this and put it into all my work. In this class my most improved skill was communication. I say this because I have increased my inner circle to more people and I’ve engaged in even more conversations then I ever have.
Science This semester in science we did 3 projects. I’m only going to focus on two because in the time of writing this we have not finished Exciting Electricity. The two projects we did finish are “Handle With Care” and “Life As We Know It”. Both of these projects weren’t very fun to me because I had no interest in them. But this last project Exciting Electricity sounds super fun and I’m going to try my absolute hardest like I did with the two final blog posts. In Life As We Know It I stretched my creative thinking. Almost all of the assignments we did involved creative thinking, for example we made comics, 3D diagrams and videos. In science I could’ve done much better in my opinion. I could’ve done better at listening, taking notes and completing my assignments to the best of my abilities. In this last project which is the one where doing at the time of writing this I have put all my effort in and it showed I was the first person to finish there operation game and it worked because I put in all my effort.
Maker This semester in maker we did 4 projects these 4 projects many focused on making videos we made many small videos and then we made two big videos one was a documentary on your chosen topic and the other was a stop motion video of a viral video. The stop motion project I was with makai we made lego version of a car race, I am pretty proud of what we did I did most of the filming and makai did the editing in that project I used my personal awareness and responsibility skill because I had to time everything out since we only had a limited time to make a movie so my original plans wouldn’t work becasue of the time restrictions. I also used my creative thinking skill when designing the models. It seems like I’ve used my creative thinking skill a lot in all of my projects and I think thats why im going to move it up a level on my learning plan chart. In this class I couldve done better at every thing while some things where good other things I think I couldve done much better at.
With all this being said I think this was a successful semester that I did really well at and next semester I will do even better
