Reflection on Political

Do you consider yourself to be “political”?  Why or why not? 

I didn’t consider myself to be “political”, because I think the government decision is the thing I can’t change, especially in China. Therefore, it not important to consider me as a political, compared to live my life well.

What does it mean to be political?  

Someone who likes to talk about government decisions, and speak their point of view for the decisions.

Is everything political?  Why or why not? 

No, because political won’t affect personal life.

How important do you feel it is to be aware of what is going on in politics?   

I think about 4-3 points out of 10, because political stuff won’t change your life, and if the thing that going on in politics is really important such as war, you will notice that.

What are the political issues that you believe are most important right now and why? 

I think it would be the way each country dill with covid-19 because it making huge effects on human rights, life, or economics, etc.

Semester 1 reflection

During the first semester, we considered knowledge questions related to “Knowledge and the Knower” and “Knowledge and Technology.”  Looking back, what learning engagements stand out to you the most and why? 

 I think the learning engagements that most interest me are the group work performance, which is really interesting because there are many different ways that my classmate perform their projects, such as a skit or a documentary. 

In what ways, if any, has your perspective shifted due to your participation in this course so far?

During this course, my perspective of knowing knowledge had been brought to a wider view, since, as before, I did wear that there have a lot of ways of knowing knowledge. Also, during this course, I learned various other people’s opinions, which I didn’t think people will think that way before, such as the plane Earth theory.

Looking ahead to the exhibition requirement, what do you want to keep in mind? 

I think the requirement I want to keep in mind is about writing the description, which we need to explain in detail about the question and why this supports my answer. I think it’s important to remember the writing pieces’ requirement because when I was writing something, I always forgot to explain why.

Thinking back on the writing you have done so far in the course, what can you do to continue to hone your skills? 

The most important thing I need to do is think more and explain my thought in more detail because I always put up an argument but didn’t explain really in detail and talk about why I think in this way.
