In Japanese, we wrote an mini-essay about peace and war about Hiroshima atomic bomb. We had to think what things we should include because we had word limits in this mini essay.
Also in Individuals and Societies, we made a comic book about a person during the Renaissance. I chose William Shakespeare and I used a lot of thinking skills. For the comic book, I needed to think what order should I put it, what things should I write and what places should I put it on. It was hard but I was able to manage it.
In math class, we did an Olympics poster. This poster, we needed to choose a country that committed in the Olympics, and I chose Japan. We researched how much medals that country got and made a graph and stuck on a poster. I used communication for this because we had to perform it and communicate well.
Another assignment is the design criteria D. I had survey 25 people to see which one is better. I had to use communication skills because I needed to communicate well to make the audience understand the questions that I ask so they don’t answer a random answer.
I used self-management skills in music because I had to be self-management of my music practice records. Every week two days I had to practice at least 20 minutes and I had to check my schedule if I was open enough. If I had homework on that day but I could do it on the next day. I live in tokyo so I had to use a lot of managing.
I did well at tutor with self-management. We chose one method to write down homework, and be organized. I chose the bullet journal technique. I wrote homework that I had to do on that day and also wrote how important that was. Also, we did an algebra chart. We start from different levels depending on where you know until. I started from the beginning but I could catch up to the higher level people. I used self-management to make sure things were due on the right time and not waste time talking to people so I don’t have any homework.
In P.E. we did a dance unit. We chose a partner to perform a dance with, then we chose a minute to create our own dance in our partners. I was with Sophie and I had to use collaboration because we needed to help each other to understand the dance. I had to also collaborate to synchronize and make a better performance.
In drama, we did a mime piece where we chose and a scene with a partner. I used collaboration because if one person does not understand what’s going on, we need to help each other with it. We needed to collaborate with this kind of partner works or group works. We need to collaborate if this is good, or I think we should change this and other things.
In I&S, we made a timeline about Empires and I chose the Japanese Empire. We researched about things what happened in that empire, events, history. I used a lot of research skills because I need to research a lot to know things. It was kind of hard to research because I had less ideas about researching skills.
In science, we chose an object that we use every day in YIS. We chose certain materials inside that object. We researched about it and made a blog post, video, or poster. I chose 3 materials (yttrium, Dysprosium, and Lanthanum). inside and I phone 6s. I used this very much because we had to use this skill effectively and not get behind. And we need a variety of sources to make my poster detailed enough.
