Around a month ago, I did a Humanities assessment and I also had to create a map of a made up country. Recently, I got my marks back and now I’m going to reflect on it.
First off, the map.
I think that I did well in putting the BOLTS – Border, Orientation, Legend, Title and Scale. I also think that I did well in placing the longitude and latitude into the map and appropriately placing the different physical and human geographical features (mountain ranges, beaches, railroads, tunnels, lakes, rivers etc.).
I think that I can improve by adding more colour and making the map look more physically appealing to the audience.
To do better for the next assignment, I will look over it first to check if it looks appealing, if it needs more colour and if I need to change anything. That way, I can check over what I’m doing to make sure that I don’t make the same mistake again.
On to the Assessment.
I think that I did well in most of the things: vocabulary, longitude and latitude, capitals, finding distance on a map, making a line scale, locating countries, and naming physical features on a map.
I think that I can improve by editing my work, because I carelessly left out Cambodia when I was locating the countries.
To do better for the next test, I will constantly tell myself to edit my work. That way, I can get used to editing my work after I complete it and so after I finish writing a test I will automatically start editing it.
