What is the biggest challenge you faced during the process of Exhibition?
The biggest challenge I faced during exhibition is was doing the research and rembering all of it because now there’s so much research you don’t know which is real or fake also and the research was hard to rember because we had so much research.
How did you work to solve or overcome that challenge?
The way that we overcame that challenge was we used a few books during exhibition and also we used websites that teachers, mentors and Mrs.Hooper gave us we also interviewed a lot of people after the mid way reflection. I overcame not rembering by reading it a few times and every practice also helped.
What have you learned about yourself since being involved in Exhibition?
I learned that I am able to talk to new people because during exhibition because you had to ask questions to people I interviewed I also found that the Skype interview was a lot harder than in person.
What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of Exhibition for you? Why?
I think the important thing that I learned were research skills because in fortune years in school you might have harder projects and you’ll be able to make a proper bibliography and have a easier time finding real and fake research.
What would you do differently, or be more mindful of if you could experience Exhibition again?
I would spend a little bit more time on the creative piece because we finished when we still had a whole day left to do our creative piece I think if we spent more time making our creative piece we will be able to make it better and catch more peoples attention.
What advice and suggestions would you like to give to the students who will work through Exhibition next year?
I would say stay on task and do a lot of interviews and read over our research a couple times.
I agree with both of them because we did more interveiws than most groups and we also did a lot of work at home at we read our research at home.
I agree with the talk louder cause I felt that wasn’t talking that loud and also on Monday someone also put on the feedback was talk louder.
I am proud that I was able to finish all of our interviews because at the start we thought of 5 interviews and we did all of them.
Explain who you interveiwed and why you chose them?
Me and my partner interviewed Mr.turner and Mr.Pella becasuse both of the teachers had taught in different countries and that helped us answer how are different school systems alike and different. We also interveiwed the super intendent and associate super indented because we thaught that because both of them would have a good understanding of our school system and if kids are stressed. We also interveiwed Dr.Sharon Friesen because we thought she would be a good interview because she is an expert on creativity in schools because she is a professional in creativity and is a proffesor in the University of Calgary.
What was it like to interview people.
I thought interviewing was probably one of the funnest things to do in exhibition as that was were you would get a lot of research and meet new people.
What was challenging about it?
I thought none of the interviews were challenging except for Dr.Sharon Friesen because she was a professional so she would ask us harder questions and would answer them in harder ways to for us to understand and also it was the longest and the only Skype.
why is it important to interview people?
I think it’s important to interveiw people can make it a lot easier for your research and there a primary source. I also think that since there experts they know a lot about your topic and they share all they’ve learned.
what did you gain from interviewing people?
What I gained from interveiwing people was more reliable research and I gained communication skills because we would talk to people you don’t know as well.
What do I need to do next?
Next a we have three exhibition practices 1 for the grade 4 and one where the grade 5s look at your exhibition and I forgot the 3rd practice. On wednesday we have the exhibition for the parents at 6 pm. On Thursday we have it at the school.
How do I feel things are going

What has been the biggest struggle so far in exhibition?
The biggest struggle has been finishing research and staying on task (sometimes).
I overcame this by staying on task doing interviews. Some skills I used were curiosity because when we were doing our interviews I had to ask questions I weren’t on the sheet. I also used cooperation because to talk to my group about what to take out of the recording of the interview.
What did you find out about yourself during exhibition?
I realized that I like working in places that have really little distractions like stuff on the wall.
Why should people come see you in exhibition?
I think because our topic is a lot different to most of the other topics. That also means that the displays will not be similar.
What positive attitudes did I use?
I used cooperation because me and my partners when we were listening back to the recordings one person would type and another one would have it playing.
I also used Curiosity because well we were doing our interview we would have to ask your questions and if you thought of another question you would have to ask it.
What attributes did I use?
I used communicator because I would have to talk to my partner about actions. I also had to be open minded about what action ideas my partner had.
What did I do this week?
This week I listened to the recording of the interview. I also did a Skype call with sfriesen, I also interviewed the super indented. I also started a script for our action which is a mock ted talk.
What new discoveries have I made?
One discovery I have made is that the Japan school system has been described as “perfect”.
Another discovery I have made is that the Finland school system is the greatest in the world.
what questions did I ask?
I asked questions about inerveiws and iphelp with interveiw questions.
I aslo asked questions for websites.
