What is the biggest challenge you faced during the process of Exhibition?
How do did you work to solve or overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge me and Alex faced was getting our iPads taken away becuase we had to do homework and do our work on paper. We were lucky that Ms rentz let us use the iPads for our interviews when we had no iPad. We had to ask the interview questions on a piece of paper that had the questions on it.
What have you learned about yourself since being involved in Exhibition?
I learned that I can be a very helpful group member becuase I was helping out the with tools. The tools are these little plastic tools in a toolbox that had strategies and things to help with anxiety and depression.I was making really good interview questions and I was involved in the conversations. On exhibition night I was ready for the questions that the adults asked us.
What was the most important, interesting or meaningful aspect of Exhibition for you? Why?
I wanted to learn why anxiety and depression is such a big problem in Canada becuase over 4 million me and women anually suffer from anxiety and depression so I wanted learn why it has increased so much lately. I think that these days people are treating the people that suffer a lot more respectful and making them fell like there not alone
What would you do differently, or be more mindful of if you could experience Exhibition again?
I would stay more on task and not fool around in the rooms were the teachers usually don’t go. Then we had to work where everybody was, in the hall.
What advice and suggestions would you like to give to the students who will work through Exhibition next year?
To not ever to fool around on the iPads they are a great resource to help with your research and if you want homework or want to write your research on paper don’t get your iPad taken away. If you ever feel like playing games please stop the thought becuase it could get you into even more trouble.
I think I should’ve talked louder because people were asking me to repeat what I had said.
I agree that animals can help patients.
I agree that the lengths of the presentation where a good length.
Im proud of
Getting my research done in time and being a good person to work with.
I am also proud of making really good interview questions for our interviews.
Explain who you interview and why did you chose them.
Me and Alex didn’t really chose the interviews our mentor did but we did talk about who to interview. We interview, Linda dimond she is a health professional,Erin clews she is a health professional, we also interview Emile young who suffers from anxiety and depression.
What was it like to interview people?
It was nerve racking on the first interview. But the second and third one was a lot easier for me.
Why is it important to interview people?
It is very important to interview people to get for research questions answered or your key concept questions.
What did you gain from interviewing people.
I gained a lot of knowledge about my topic so I can say my thoughts on exhibition night.
What we need to do next is getting set up for our staging we are using the place inbeetween 1M,1J. We are using the portable chalk board for our reaserch so we can answer they peoples questions.
Some new discoveries that I have made are that there are two types of anxiety the first one is social anxiety witch effects for relationships with your friends. The second type is general anxiety when you are nervous and think you need to everything right this second.
What I did this week was wright a thank you note to my mentor who took her time out of her day to help and support during the process of exhibition.
Give an update what are your plans for action? what are your plans for showcasing your work?
Me and Alex’s plans for action are making stress balls to relive peoples stress so they can go back to normal and not worry about unnessecery things. Me and Alex’s plans for showcasing are a tool box with fake tools and its eye catching because people will wonder what it is about and come over to ask why.
What has been the biggest struggle so far in exhibition? How did you overcome it? What skills/attidudes/attributes did you use.
One struggle for me and Alex was getting our ipads taken away for a week we had to most of our work on paper we recovered by getting back on task and working together to answer our key concept questions. I used communication skills to explain ideas for ur action ideas and staging.
What did you find out about yourself during exhibition.
I found out that i can be very off task at times but when i really wont to get my work done i am a very helpful group member. And develop good and quality research and interview questions.
Why should people come see your exhibition.
Because our action idea and staging will be very eye catching we have a tool box with tools that help to make you less depressed or anxious when you are having a tough time. People will come because it has a tool box and they will wonder what the tool box is for.
what was challenging for me and Alex was making the interview questions.For 4 people names are Emilie young,Amy,Erin Clews,Taylor norum, It may be hard becuase me and Alex might be a little nervous to talk to people we don’t know at all.
i used my research skills to ask questions to develop quality interview questions for our 4 interviews. I also used my self management skills to manga e our time and not be of task during exhibition time.
Exhibition inspires me to take action because I won’t to be a difference maker and find a reason that anxiety, depression is caused by. I really won’t to listen to a person with anxiety or depression and see how people without anxiety or depression see the world vs people with anxiety depression.
We are planning on interviewing people before April 23rd we decided to ask questions on how people with anxiety cope with there problems or how they handled the promblem. How do people realize that they have anxiety or how they get depression or is it developed after you get older or are you born with anxiety, depression.
I was a communicator to make questions for my group. Help out to find the research to answer our question we developed.
I feel that things are going pretty well becuase the teachers are telling us we are ahead of the pack,and developing good key concept questions.
Describe what are your main ideas/focus that have come out of your discussions this week. My main focus is to not get off task and be doing my work the whole time. Sharing my ideas with my group is important because I need to participate.
im exited for showing the school how hard the grade 5s have worked in the exhibition process
I hope that my group finishes on time and does it with quality. I hope that the interviews go successfully and we find the perfect person to get information from
this is important to me becuase I want to figure what is the cause of suicide or anxiety, depression/ do you develop anxiety, depression when you get older.
My topic is anxiety,depression
