In Grade 8 I think I’m doing well with social skill, Self management skill, research skill, and Thinking skill. I still need to improve on Communicating skill.
ART and DESIGN
I think I did well on demonstrating thinking skill in Art. This semester, we had worked on making a ceramic art where we build a object using a clay. I think I did well on thinking skill because I have thinked many ideas. The final idea I have chose was to make a small plate that can hold pickles. Even I had a lot of ideas, I still want to improve to explain the idea with more details when I do the criteria A.
This unit in design, we have learned how to make a animation. We first chose a video (animation) from ‘youtube’ that tells a message to people but has a less view. After we have chose the animation, we have made a animation using the same kind of topic to have more views. I think I have demonstrated thinking skill in design because I had different kind of ideas to make a better animation. The final video I made was to make everyone think that dumping is not good.
Here’s the video (Mr.Martinez – Art and Design Channel)
I&S and JAPANESE
In I&S I did well on demonstrating research skill. In this unit we have learned about economics. I think I did well on research skill because I have researched a lot to put in the project. One of the project was about ‘Religion Research Project’. I have able to get a high grade, and I think I was able to get it because I have done research well.
In Japanese I think I am doing well at researching skill. Last unit, we have learned about ‘Shi no kokoro’ and this is about Japanese poem (詩). I have researched about ‘Ame ni mo makezu’ by Kenji Miyazawa. I did well on researching skill because I was able to get all 8 for that project. But still, want to improve on using better language.
Self management skill
PE and EAL
I think I am doing good at self-management skill in PE. This is because when we did the assessment on making a goal, I was able to get a high grade. I think this was because I have reflected what I still needed to improve. But still, I want to improve on explaining the skills.
LINK to PE SMART Goals Confirmation
In EAL we don’t really have a UNIT that we are focusing, but we still are working on speaking, writing, and reading skill. I think I am doing good at self-management skill in EAL because, we always have homework on reading and quizlet and sometimes writing. I was able do my homework on time because I have always took notes what I needed to do for homework. But still, I want to improve to read more and do quizlet more than 2 hours.
DRAMA and SCIENCE
Last unit, in drama we have worked on making a persuasive speech. In this unit we had to make a speech that will make people persuade to think differently. In this speech I have talked about why running is good for you.
I think I am doing well at communication skill in drama because I was able to speak about why running is good for you with details. I also thought I improved then before because I got confidence doing a speech.
I think I am doing well at communication skill in science. This is because in science we do a lot of writing assessment after we did the experiment and I have to make sure that I am using a correct scientific language. I think I am doing well at communication skill in science. One of the project I did well was on Acid and Base experiment Metals B & C assessment. In this assessment we have reflected on if magnesium is good for bicycle frame. I was able to get a high grade, and I think this was because I have used scientific language.
ENGLISH and MATH
I think I still need to improve communicating skill in English class. In this unit we have learned a lot about poem, and there were a lot of times where we have shared our ideas in class. I think I need to improve on social skill because most of the time I really haven’t shared my ideas with class. I want to improve this by sharing idea with the class more often.
I think I still need to improve communicating skill in Math. This is because I am very quiet in class and I don’t really share my idea. I think I can improve this by sharing ideas with others. But still I rather prefer and do well when I am on my own.
