If I had to do this poem again, I would have double checked, asked the teacher for more help, and try and make it the best it can be.
The information I included in my poem was all relevant and best discribes me, my interests, my future wishes and others.
I didn’t write “WATASHI” over and over, so I guess that made my poem look more professional. The bad thing is that many of my sentences don’t make sense so that is a bad thing
Over all, I thought I could have done better, but this was quite a hard project.

In Science class we did a oral presentation over voicethread, and my topic was the escalator. In the beginning I did not work on this project a lot, and so later on in the project, I was struggling with my information that I was going use in my presentation. But towards the end I think I did a fine job. A day before it was due, I recorded my presentation but I think It was a bit to long than the actual length that it was supposed to be. In the end I think I did alright and get an okay score!

For this unit, we were required to choose a folk or fairy tale and modify it so that younger children would understand it better and feel more amused. My group, James, Markus, Daniella and I chose the fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin because we thought the audience would find it really find it funny, yet interesting at most points. Also it is a fun story that children always enjoy, if it is presented well.
Describe the progress have you made so far. (You may need to review the skills and knowledge area for the unit, either on your cover sheet or at the top of this wiki). Describe the story elements and techniques that you used and how successful it was.
I’ve made some progress throughout this unit. Probably my biggest improvement has been modifying stories for a younger audience. I started understanding that I have to actually speak in simple words so that they understand better. Also, we must face the audience while performing so that the children can see all the action that’s happening. I think that only happend briefly but most of the time my group was showing their backs. Another way to make your performance more interesting is to interact with the audience. Involving them, asking questions; whether they have seen the ‘bad guy’ or not or other examples.
What are the strengths and weaknesses in your scene as a whole and as an individual?
The weakness’ that I had was that I couldn’t help laughing at some points. This is not very good because it distracts the audience and it also messes up the performance. As a group, a weakness was that we were turning our backs towards some parts of the audience. This is very bad because the audience would not be able to see what is going on. I expressions were over exaggerated; and memorable but I think could also be a good thing because it shows more of the character than just person playing the role. Also, my tone of voice was hi-pitched but also in all different ranges, just like a crazy little man should be, powerful, like a evil person should be.
Is your scene successful? Why or why not?
I think our scene could’ve been better if we had practiced more. We made a few mistakes, a bit of laughter and had a really big mistake. This threw us off. We all laughed, though it did feel a bit ok because the audience also laughed so that made me feel a bit better Something we could do next time would be to practice even more. Spend some time before and after school to make sure we were all ready. However, we did have some successful parts where it was very interesting and funny.
What could you do to further improve your artistic process? (Please provide details or examples for this)
Something I could do to improve my artistic skills would be to get together with a few friends and try to practice a few short stories and show it to an audience. This would not only boost my skills but also my confidence with an audience watching.
Overall, I think my performance was good for the first time I’ve done something like this but I could’ve done much better, our whole group could’ve done better as well. We had some very strong areas.

Questions for the movie.
1. If the climate change happens and is a great danger do our species, can we go back?
2. If we cant go back to the normal climate that we use to live in, can’t we live up to it and start a new life. Isn’t it part of nature?
3. If the climate gets warmer than usual, why can’t the government or doctors warn other people about staying inside and being cooled with air conditioner.

Which parts of criteria D and E were you most successful at demonstrating in the assessment?
- In criteria D, what I did most successful at demonstrating in the assessment was when I thought about the procedure and the structure of my assessment. In criteria E was probably my pie graph because I showed a clear diagram.
Which parts could you have improved on?
- The part that I really have to improve on would be the results because I did not draw a table which is probably one of the mist important parts of the the Assessment

- What would you improve about your presentation?
- If I had to do my presentation again the things that I would improve on the way I was speaking. I spoke in a boring voice which was not so exciting. I also think that Eva should have had more to say because she only asked questions.
- Would you ask any other questions or bring up any other arguments?
- Yes. Eva should have said more about how children work and the injuries the children got for climbing a chimney.
- When you watch the video, do you think you were persuasive? Why were you able to persuade the audience (language, tone, evidence?)
- I talked about the injuries that I got and I did show them the scars I got from being whipped. I showed lots of emotion and I think I did persuade the audience a lot.

1. How many criteria do you think it is useful to have? Why? Can you have too many or too few?
I think there should be a fair amount of criteria that you should because you do not want a lot. So that means maybe 4 or 5
2. Which of the criteria the class came up with do you think is the most important? Why?
I think the most important criteria that the class came up with was “There should be a lot of detail in the trailer so that it looks like you put a lot of work into it and not a 5 minute thing”
3. Do you feel that the class left out any really important criteria? What ones?
No I think my class put in many good criterias that will be helpful in the future.
4. Do you think the process we used (research, small group agreement, then whole class agreement) is a good way to develop criteria – why or why not?
There are many good Ideas that the class uses and so it will be good that we can look back at the work that you did with you class.
