Chang Hyun Social Studies final project

In this project on human right, we focused on improving/learning ways to present and more detailed about human right. This is an important skill because we could interoperate this on future projects and human could on of the basic knowledge  .  One thing I improved while working on this project is my ability to present. This blog post provides a reflection on my work, as well as a sample of what I accomplished.

  • How can you continue your involvement with this group or social issue?

I could involve in lots of ways, indirect and direct ways. But for me I think I can contribute to this organization by donating money and advertise their NGOs by social media for example: Facebook, Twitter, Skype etc. These would help them because since nowadays social media has a great influence on society, by advertising I would gain more people who would donate for them.

  • What did you learn from visiting other exhibits?

From visiting other exhibits  I have learnt lots of interesting things. Such as for Sophie’s group, who is partnered with Harvest Bakery, we had learnt a way to communicate with out saying verbally. This was quite useful because I was able to use this outside of the school

  • How did my collaboration with classmates help me focus my ideas or provide new insights?

For collaborating with team mates we did a quite good job because we both communicate and respect other’s opinion. This had helped us to focus on our ideas and provide new insight

We had to build a house for disabilities and low income people in this society. We had designed a adorable house for people. This house contain very basic needs for human being.

  • Did anything surprise you? If so, what?
    I was quite surprise that it is very hard to manage and use the time very efficiently. I felt that this project was quite easy because we had lots of time for completing. However, as a project manager I think our group wasn’t working very efficiently as managing time. If I could do this project again I would manage time in better way
  • Did anything happen that made you feel uncomfortable? If so what, and why do you think it made you feel this way?

Um… First because its a group project it was quite uncomfortable. This made me uncomfortable because it was quite hard to manage time. For homework there were limited things to do, since we don’t live in one roof.

Social Studies

20 million african men, women, and children were captured and bought, or kipnapped by Europian and American slave trader and sold to labor on the plantations and the mines of the America ( They cam in Chain, Milton Meltzer)

Imagine waking up at five o’clock every morning to start work in a dimly lit carpet factory.Sitting on a hard wooden nech in front of a loom, your job is to tie wool……while you can hear laughter of school children outside.(We need to go to school, Tanya Robert-Davis)

A few of my professional qualities include that I am a great listener, although sometimes people think i’m not paying attention because I tend to look at something else when i’m listening, I am also very creative, I can come up with a lot of cool and funny ideas sometimes that kinda bend the rules.

Of course, nobody is perfect, and I do have some bad qualities too. These bad qualities include the fact that i’m quite irresponsible, i’m usually late and sometimes I forget really important things. Also, sometimes I feel like i’m quite immature as I tend to make a lot of jokes and laugh at silly things, which some people find really annoying.

Advisory 8-SLC

I feel like something challenging this year was trying to “master,” or at least do well on every, single, thing I had taken on. This year was extremely busy because I had GIN, StuCo, my academies, after school activities, another .

I think that when I move to High School, I should take some of the things I’m doing and focus more on my studies. From HS, you get a transcript, so your grades are crucial, so I can’t make something else my main focus. I feel like I could take out something like one of my orchestras. The others are all long term “projects/activities” I CAN’T possibly quit, so I’m hoping taking away the orchestra will help me do better at school.

We also did a lot of projects/activities with our buddies, which was a strange experience. My had reading buddies in 1st grade, and it’s funny-she’s graduating this year :/ Time travels fast), was a reading buddy in 3rd and 4th grade (maybe it was 4th and 5th grade. I thought they were the most obnoxious kids in the world. And to a point I still think that my 1st grade reading buddy right now is a little bit annoyed, but these days they seem so cute! It’s so cool  I also thought that my current reading buddy and my previous reading buddies would not have liked me, but then if I think about it, I really liked my reading buddy in 1st grade. It’s awesome!

  1. What is your favorite activity/unit in physical education class? and why? Please link your related blog post to show your parents.

My favorite activities was Life saving and Soccer. Life saving was great because by learning lifesaving we had learn lots of ways to save other people. For example we learned CPR which would save other people’s life. Soccer was also great because by playing soccer we were able to improve teamwork and other skills.

  1. What are your goals related to fitness?

I have two goals for PE. First it would be take care of my own body. This would be one of my goals because I got fractured wrist which wasn’t very helpful in PE lessons. Second I would like to improve my strength. I realized that I am not very fit enough which made me more and more tired during PE.

What are you doing to reach your fitness goals outside of PE class?

To reach my goals I would take care of my body first. After taking care I would exercise more. For example I would run after eating dinner or I would start to learn Taekwondo

Reflection SS

In this project on Toy stories, we focused on improving/learning ways to use philosophers on movies. This is an important skill because by this we had learn ways to think as philosophers.  One thing I improved while working on this project is my ability to write down what we thinks and the way to plan out. This blog post provides a reflection on my work, as well as a sample of what I accomplished.

What trouble did I have and why?

We had various of troubles. First we had limited time which made us rushed. Also we had technical problems(sound). I wish we could improve this if I have one more chance.By using microphones.

SLC Language Art 8

What were you best at? Most successful,etc…why?

I think we did quite good job on:

-planning our advertising our product (link). In my opinion I think we have accomplished our requirement and expectation. Also our group was able to answer and give solutions to what teachers were asking.

– Lid circle (link) was quite successful because our group always diccusses about the book enthusiastically. Also this helped me to improve my presenting skills.

what do you need to improve on?

I didn’t do a good job on:

– Ad Quiz (Link) was quite dissapoiting for me. It was quite dissapoitning becuase I have got quite low grade on this. Also this has dragged my grade average.
