Social Studies Group Project reflection

In this project on Human rights, we focused on improving self esteem of orphanages in Vietnam. This is an important skill because we were able to help them improve their self esteem and able to provide them services and cup cakes.  One thing I improved while working on this project is my ability to speak out fluently(?) due to elevator speech during the showcase. This blog post provides a reflection on my work, as well as a sample of what I accomplished.   What did you learn from visiting other exhibits? I have learned a lot from orphans. There is so many that I cannot tell however, I can tell that providing service is a best job as you will receive applause as well as smiles from others that you have serviced. How did my collaboration with classmates help me focus my ideas or provide new insights? My team helped me a tons as i really want to appreciate them as they sure did a great job in this human rights project. Without my team member, I won’t be able to complete this project as well as my task without their help. Because of my service-learning, I am now able to notice that providing service is hard but is a definite way of receiving a smile from others. It was a great experience that was donc during this semester (including food drive) and was really fun as well as exciting project.     Link to our lesson plan during providing services   ...

Service Learning Reflection

In this Human rights project, our team worked on Poverty including lack of education and out service that was provided was to encourage students to own better self esteem and courage by having activities done with students in Orphan Impact last weekend. It was far away which was kind of near the airport. -What did you do that seemed to be effective or ineffective in service to others? I thought that everybody had to participate in the activity without somebody who is left over as that would be an opposite effect or encouraging kids. So, we have provided cup cakes as well as mirror activity that is done individually and was  effective as people were able to express their own ideas without a kid left behind. -What are the most difficult or satisfying parts of your work? Why? There weren’t much difficulties however, I was really satisfied that I as well as my group members were able to encourage the students in orphan impact to aid improving their self esteem. I also thought that they were really cute because when we have finished our job and about to leave, all the kids were saying “Thank You” and was really proud what we as a group have done in this...

Overall Poem Reflection

What have you learned about poetry since we first started the unit (what did you know at the start, and what do you now know)? -I have learned that there are various type of poem as well as numbers of different type of styles. I mostly learned about alliteration, onomatopoeia, puns, extended metaphor…etc. What challenged you in this unit? -It challenged me as the rubric led me a limit when writing a poem where I have to insert certain subject and not able to express the idea. This were challenging ones that I struggled the most. Which of your poems did you like the most and why? -I liked about “Doctors who lie” which was kind of master piece that I have made during this poetry assessment. It mostly includes poem terms(?) and I like how the story or feelings from a sad event stimulates my mind. Basically, it is most enjoyable poem to read. How did your visuals enhance (add to) your poems? -My visuals(overall) enhanced my poems by adding the details as well as secret meaning inside a photo. It might not be secret however, I don’t think people will get it right away. How did you find the overall experience of writing poetry? -It is hard than I thought. I feel like poem is one of a hard type of writing. What did you enjoy/not enjoy about writing poetry? -I have enjoyed playing with white spaces and type of poem. It was fun playing with them, and I enjoyed creating a poem that made sense as it was hard for me to create one poem. Final thoughts? -Not really. It would be fun if we do this again. Not with a limitation with rubric when writing a...

Yearbook reflection Highs and Lows

Yearbook these days are really fun but also challenging because there were some problem going on during the creation of the spread and in the middle of the creation of the spread. To say, photoshopping (cutouts) are really enjoyable as it needs focus and a lot of precision which I like to do. Adobe indesign was also a cool programme I have interacted with Macbook and get to know how others that were in yearbook before had work on and what they needed to fix with. Especially like reconnecting the link of the photo and resizing with certain shortcut on the keyboard. Also, I enjoyed taking photo with my friend about Macbook. Although it was challenging, I learned about different direction of angle when taking photo and how to make the photo look better than others that aren’t. I have learned the most important factor about the indesign that image have their own information such as PPI. Effective PPI in indesign was really a confusing thing I have seen when I designed the first one and it made me really confusing as I didn’t really know what and how it worked however these days, I know a lot about indesign and to say, I am not a total professional at this but at least a bit. There is the one I didn’t like, and that is about some features in indesign. I don’t know whether I am just bad at it or something, but I hope they add more features to make less complicated and less errors occurring. It is just annoying to see that the errors are not showing right away and it makes me confusing if others don’t check my spread for me. I think that is why I have got more than 50 errors when others opened my spread. Also, for indesign, I have to use Psd file for “Place” and had made me angry as I didn’t know what to do and what the problem was as others didn’t tell me precisely as the white space was also inserted which was photoshopped and changed into a jpg or jpeg. If indesign change, I hope they put a new features to make other type of photos to be able to be placed without the white space inserting...

Social Studies human right (books)
