Final Reflection.

What is the biggest challenge you faced During exhibition?

The biggest challenge was not taking over during speaking over when we were doing the showcase with the kids and adults. I wanted to take over but I knew I couldn’t I wanted more parts but I couldn’t because it wouldn’t be fair. Another big challenge was making decisions becuase everyone wanted there’s to get chosen and sometimes they would say that your idea isn’t that good.

How did you work to overcome or solve that challenge?

I overcome not trying to take over by only saying what I needed to say and not adding anymore ideas to say more. I also overcome not always using my ideas because after we started to use voting for our decision making times and that worked out fairly and even if someone was a little upset everyone knew that that was the fair way, 

What have you learned about yourself while being involved in exhibition?

The things I’ve learned are that I usually like having my ideas and I usually want them all to agree with my idea. Another thing I’ve learned is that I thought I would like to have as less ideas to say as possible but I wanted a lot after practing I wanted most of the parts to say because it was boring listening to your group members talking. 

What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of exhibition for you? Why?

The most important thing of exhibition was the showcase because that’s the time when people get to know about the importance of that topic and how to stop that from happing. Like my topic was gender equality we told them about gender equality and how to stop it. The most interesting thing was the creative part making the posters we made because it was really fun and interesting to see if it turns out how we wanted our no. It was also interesting because when people said that they like our posters it was interesting since we thought that they wouldn’t say anything like that. The most meaningful thing was being the MC and talk to all those parents because I thought that I wouldn’t get the part for MC but I actually did and that was really meaningful to me. 

What would you do differently, or be mindful of if you could experience exhibition again?

If I did exhibition again what I would do differently is instead of making posters making statues of gender equality like a statue of girl then boy and equal sign. Since it would also make people come to our stand and attract them to our stand/showcase. 

What advice and suggestions would you like to give to the students who will work through exhibition next year.

The advice I would give to students next year is to do your work and not fool around becuase if you do and don’t get your work done then you will be behind and will be rushing and when your rushing your work it isn’t that good. 

My goals

My first goal was my reading goal which I think I accomplished because I was reading when we had to resarch. My second goal was using my time wisely which I did becuase I did my work and didn’t fool around. 

 

 

Feedback Reflection.

What I’ve achieved.

think I achieved this because our group was prepared when we were presenting and our whole group was there it was never like two of us were there and one wasn’t. We were also prepared with our showcase becuase we wouldn’t talk over top of each other. Another way we were prepared is when your not prepared sometimes you don’t know who saying what that well and then one person would just take other. Since we were prepared we had equal parts.

I think I’ve achieved being professional because I used to fidget with my hair when we would be practicing our showcase but during the actual thing I didn’t fidget with my hair. We were also professional since we knew our topic when someone would ask a question we would know the answer. If we didn’t know the answer that would look bad and they would think we didn’t know our topic or we didn’t reasearch that much.

What I didn’t achieve.

I think I wasn’t talking loud enough because there was a lot of noise becuase of other showcases. Some parents had to come closer to hear what we’re saying somethimes. Maybe next time I should practice to speak louder while we’re practing our lines.

Reflections Part One.

What are you proud of.                                                                                                 I’m proud of completing exhibition and doing it really good I’m proud that our showcase wasn’t a complete flop. In the beginning I thought that it wouldn’t work out good but it went really good.

How is Exhibition different than other projects you’ve done in the past.           Exhibition is different then other projects becuase in exhibition you do research questions, lines of inquiry, essential agreement, action, creative piece, interviews,. In other projects there aren’t these many steps.

Do you feel your message inspired your audience.                                             I feel our message inspired the audience becuase the poster we made we thought was really powerful.The 50/50 poster was the most powerful because it was simple and represented that there both men and female equal.

Now that you’ve experienced exhibition what will you take with you to apply to future projects.                                                                                               Now that I’m done exhibition I will use the skills cumunication skills becuase when I’m older I’m going to need to cumunication when I get a job or during school. I will also use thinking skills becuase i would need to think about my decision in futhor during school or when I’m older and need to make decisions.

How did working with a mentor support your learning.                                I think it helped becasuse our mentor gave us useful websites that we wouldn’t be able to find without our mentor. Our mentor also helped us with our interview questions and making them easier to answer.  

Week 7 Reflections.

My creatve piece video 


How DId I Use These Attributes?                                                                           
 I used the Attributes communicator and thinker. I used the Attribute communicator when I speak my ideas or when I listen to others ideas. I listen and speak during exhibition when we were deciding on our action, or when we were also deciding our creative piece. I work on being a thinker by thinking of ideas for action or our creative piece. 

What Do I Need To Do Next?                                                                                       What I need to do next is to finish my action with my group and we need to do our creative piece. So next week we need to bring in our materials for our creative piece and we might have to take our action home to finish.

Week Six Reflection.

Reflect on your exhibition goals. GOAL: using my time wisely.                               I think I’m working on my goal good and I don’t  talk to others when it’s exhibition time. I also think it going good because if I was talking to others we wouldn’t have enough research or work done. 

What skills have I used?   (Question prompt # 1)                                                                                                                                     I think I have used my cumunication skills speaking because I try to get my ideas included and try to participate in group discussion. 

How I feel things are going?  (Question prompt # 2)                                                                                         I think it going not that well but not that bad so kind of in the middle. It’s in the middle because sometimes my group members don’t work well with me and when I tell them to please stop they don’t but sometimes they do stop. 

What’s Exhibition Like?

How Would You Describe Exhibition?

A long process of reasearching. Also a long time working with a group. It also gets hard sometimes and  frustrating because your group,members might not be cooperating with you .Exhibition is a time we’re you get to use skills to help you in the future. It gives you the opportunity to interview people older than you.

What Does The Exhibition Provide With?

Exhibition provides you with a mentor who helps you out during the ten week process of exhibition. Exhibition also provides you with interviews websites and books. You can also bring your own sources for reasearch.It gives us the chance to use our social skills cumunication skills and thinking skills.It also lets us use the attributes and attitudes principled, cooperation, enthusiasm, responsiblity, thinker and risk-taker.

Whats Something People Might Not Know About Exhibition?

Something people might not know about Exhibition is citing your sources (bibliography). Something you also might not know is everyone gets to see your showcase also exhibition is a really long process. At first exhibition is really easy after it gets harder. It also lets you have the chance to use attributes attitudes and transdisplinsry skills. The fun and easy part is showcase!

Week 1 Reflections

Describe what are your main ideas/focus that have come out of your discussions this week (2-3 sentences)

Our main focus is gender equality rights. Like how some people don’t have the same rights because of their gender.

I’m excited to start reasearching my topic becuase then I can find information and I just really like when I have tons of information. I’m also excited to showcase at the end.

I hope that we don’t fall behind becuase if we fall behind it’s going to be hard to catch up with the others.

this is important to me because all genders should be treated the same because it’s not nice or fair to treat people different because of their gender.
