L21 Skill: Communication& collaboration
Claim: Collaboration is extremely important during classroom projects including discussions, in this new school year, I’ve tried to be more active on this topic.
Evidence: Classroom collaboration- Socratic seminars
Reasoning: I wasn’t familiar with what a Socratic seminar should look like when I was first introduced to this project. But after a few lessons and seminars, I’m able to express ideas and communicate much better than the first few with more background knowledge, preparation, and research.
Claim: I’ve expressed dialogues as I wish during TV-Panel discussions.
Evidence: Tv-Panel show, Russian Revolution
Reasoning: The TV-panel shows discussion project should probably be new to almost everyone. However, as we were split into groups, we collaborated and helped each other on how we could improve, and how we should create our character profile. We also analyzed our words into a prepared document for further use in our discussion.
L21 Skill: Creativity& innovtion& responsibility
Claim: I improved taking responsibilities including creativity during our one-day dance project create.
Reasoning: Groups members and I gathered to create our one-day dance piece and took responsibility for roles we’re supposed to be running. As a group with no Koreans, we struggled to put our K-pop dance piece together at first, but after practices provided during mentoring time, we realized learning this dance as a whole community, as the normal version, might and should work way much efficient than working as individuals. Since then, we used our time both during the days and after school sufficiently, and that’s what led to success in our performance.
Claim: I improved creativity and responsibility skills when I edit the CCR’s common craft video; Creating our own script for descriptions of the CCR in plain English, our own image, and video, and taking responsibility for final video’s edit.
Evidence: The CCR’s common craft video
Reasoning: This video I’ve edited was actually my first experience collecting media and placing it together with iMovie. I wasn’t capable of using iMovie before this task, and that also includes the lack of skills inserting segments of video recordings in order for the match of our film, etc. Even though I faced lots of obstacles, but with two teammates, we divided roles and each took responsibility for it and therefore made our common craft video into a success.
L21 Skill: Critical Thinking& Problem Solving
Claim: The science NIH project has helped me in improving my critical thinking skills, by researching, collaborating, and presenting.
Reasoning: I’ve tried digging deep into our science project, by critically thinking during the formation of our script. The NIH project improved me critically thinking skills while researching is required. I’ve decided to concentrate on the topic, Breast Cancer, to be more precise, the early detection-screening in Breast Cancer. I was completely unfamiliar with this topic before this project, but after the well-prepared presentation, I’ve gained much more knowledge.
Claim: I’ve gained lots of knowledge of the Cultural Revolution that happened during the 1960’s in China
Evidence: The journal entry I’ve created as the final project of the revolution unit
Reasoning: We were required to create a journal from the perspective of any character that period as our final project. However, the preparation of that journal has pushed me to think like a historian, and critically decided whether or not is it beneficial etc.
