Student Led Conference 2k16 !

Communication Skills:

Spanish:

I think I worked well with my group as we were the first group to finish and we were on track almost the entire time. We communicated well in the making of the script by not only sharing our ideas but also listening to others when they shared their idea. 

Hola: Group Conversation
English

This year in English, I have been doing an okay job, however there are many things I am hoping to improve. I would like to work on my communication as my worst criteria is criteria d. I am hoping to increase both my vocabulary and my grammar by reading more books or listening more in class.

Skellig Final Essay

 

Social Skills:

Math:

Math has been my strongest subject this year. I used what I learned in class and what I had learned previously from school and home to use this semester. I would like to continue working hard and asking questions when necessary to improve both my grade and inquire my curiosity.

Self Manegment Skills:

Art:

I think I organised my time well in this subject as unlike other projects, I had spread my work load over a long period of time. I believe this is a good habit and I would like to continue this habit for the rest of my school life.

Criteria A Notebook

Drama:

Because we had a lot of freedom to do what we want in the time given to us, it was important for me to stay on task. This is where my self management skills came to play.  I had to make sure to finish my work without getting off track.

Persuassive Speech

Design

Although in the end I ended up with an okay final product, I believe if I had organised my time more efficiently, I would have been able to create a more finished product. I did not properly plan my animation so I would be able to  finish so that is what I will try to improve in the coming semester.

Animation

Research Skills:

Science

For this investigation we had to write up a report for the experiment and to write a report, we had to have background information on the topic. This is where the research skills were used. We searched for reliable resources to use for the hypothesis and conclusion.

Acids and Bases Investigation

I&S

In this project, I was proud of my research skill as I was able to collect the needed information from reliable sources such as UNICEF, WHO etc. I was able to research efficiently and I would like to continue this throughout the rest of the year.

Gapminder

Japanese

For this project, I had to write a speech with my group about what we had learned. I think I did pretty well in this speech as I had done my proper research I needed in order to write a well worded and well thought out speech.

All Test Results

PE:

I transferred my previous knowledge from different sports and used it to create a tactic for handball defence and offence. I was also able to use the information we learned in class 

Handball Tactic

Music:

This semester in music, I used both my prior knowledge on music and what we had learned earlier on to create this. 

Triads and Inversions

Music Reflection

In this unit, we created our own pop song using a bass line, a melody, and harmony. We learned about triads and inversions in the beginning of the unit and worked on our song in the rest. I was in a group with William and Jan for the pop song. We created an introduction however because that didn’t work as planned, we struggled with continuing the song. Although in the end, we were able to finish it on time.

Triads are set of three notes that can be stacked in thirds. From the bottom, the notes are called root, third, and fifth. These notes are chosen from a certain scale. For example for the c triad, the c scale is used and all the notes used are from the scale. For the chords, we used the c, f, g and a minor triads.

I think my strongest skill in this project was collaboration. My group and I communicated our ideas well and worked well together. However, one major factor that could be improved was staying on task. Because we worked so well together, often times the conversation would get off track and we wouldn’t be productive as intended.
