In English class we had to make a video of us doing a scene a the book two weeks with the queen. I think this showed collaboration because we had a group of about 3 people and we had to make sure that we where all pulling in and doing something to contribute to this project. Me and my group worked really well and all had different jobs that we would have to do to finish the project. When we had to pick what character we wanted to be everyone got the person they wanted and no one was upset with what they got. So for me I didn’t want a huge speaking role so I stuck with the nurse and did the filming.
In science class we had to create a poster on any element that is in a electronic that we use in school. I did mine on tungsten. I think the poster shows reacher skills because you have to finned a lot of evidence to support your facts and questions and how this effect this. I showed my reacher skills by making sure that I found good websites and answered all the things on the TLC. This really helped me grow my reaching skills and now I am better that before. I also like this poster because you could chose any way of presenting it online, a poster, hand written and others but I chose a poster because I could add little facts here and there and make everything well orgnized. I am very proud of my poster.
We had a workshop in class where jack a famous puppetry came to our class and we got to use different puppets and do a little performance with them. Some elements that we touched in this workshop where space because we had to make the puppet move around and used levels to embrace the story we were trying to get across to the audience. Another element that we used was collaboration because some of the puppets took 3 puppetry to move it and you needed to follow head and the eyes. The eyes had to look at something then the rest of the body would move towards whatever the puppet was looking at. We also used timing because you had to time when the puppet would move because you needed the puppet to look alive and not just all of a sudden have these jerky movements. I love this saying a puppet struggles to live an actor struggles to die I think this is so key you movement make the biggest impact on your puppet to look alive so you have to be aware of what you make your puppet do and does it look alive. We also used timing because you had to time when the puppet would move because you needed the puppet to look alive and not just all of a sudden have these jerky movements. We had done some activities where we had to use puppets and create little skits, so we kind of knew how puppets moved and how you had to have smooth movements. So it help that we had already used puppets but it was still hard to move the puppets that they gave us in the workshop.In P.E. we had a work on this dance and we had music in the background this set the mood and I think that in drama when we did performs and used music we could create a charter and the story based on the mood of the music so it help us tell the story. To make the puppet come to life me and my group had to make to movements like the movements we do in our everyday. We made sure that we would look at where we were going they to rest of the body would move just like you do when you want something you look at it then walk or run to it. When your puppet moves you body has to move as well and look like your puppet is taking breath and you can even make the sounds yourself in make the puppet seem even more alive.
In P.E. class we had to do a dance and do it to Just Dance. I think this showed collaboration doing this dance because me and my partner had to create a part in the dance where we had our own dance moves. Me and my partner really worked well together to complete the dance and we supported each other and help each other if we didn’t know apart of the dance. We dived the creative part in to two part so one part I would have to create and teach my partner and my partner would do the same. I also became more confident because we had to show this dance to the whole class and I am shy so this really push but I am glad I did it.
In Spanish class we did an oral on empanadas. I think this showed communication because you had to show how much you know in Spanish and how much you progressed from the first day in Spanish. I think that I have really have grown from the first day and am really proud of that. Even though Spanish is not my strong suit I think that I really have learned and know more then I did before. One thing that I want to do better at is telling time and when I have to descried something I will use detail I have seen this when I read the comment that I got from my Spanish teacher. So I need to keep going back to those things because I will need them later on and should not forget them.
In math call we had to make a poster on an the Olympics. I think for this poster we used communication because after we where done with the poster we had to do a small presentation on it and explain in detail mean, mode, range, median and three questions that we had to answer. Communication was key to this presentation because you had to speak clear and make sure to engage the audiences. Also in math we had to do work on exercises for math and after you are done you get to put a sticker on this sticker board. This shows self- management because you have to stay focus and get an amount of exercises done for the day and if you don’t complete the exercises you have to do it for home work.
For collaboration, I think I demonstrated this skill by work together in a team or partnership with people you know or don’t know on a project. For example, in I&S we had a unit on empire’s and we where split up into partnerships with two people explain in a video about empires and how they colonised other empires. I chose this because I really like how me and my partner divide up the roles and we got it done in the end . I’m proud of my work, because it shows how well I work with people I might of first not known that well but got to know after the assessment was done.
I showed media literacy/information literacy skills in Design class, when I had to work on criterion A. Criterion A was the criterion where you had to do a lot of reacher about your character you where going to change and how you would sell it to an age group. I chose this because I had very well organised pages and I thought of a creative way of setting up the page so everyone could see what I got out of my research. I’m proud of my work, because it shows how over time I got better at finding good web-sites that had information I was looking for and how to find those key facts and parts in web-sites.
