Students show awareness of the consequences of choices and actions in planning and carrying out CAS experiences.

The student:
– recognizes ethical issues
– is able to explain the social influences on one’s ethical identity
– takes into account cultural context when making a plan or ethical decision
– identifies what is needed to know in order to make an ethical decision
– articulates ethical principles and approaches to ethical decisions
– shows accountability for choices and actions
– is aware of the consequences of choices and actions regarding self, others involved and the community
– integrates the process of reflection when facing an ethical decision
– shows awareness of the potential and varied consequences of choices and actions in planning and carrying out CAS experiences.

 

During CAS week in October, I went to Japan with a few other friends to truly experience the Japanese culture by living with local farmers and experiencing their daily lives. We learned to respect the different culture by changing some of our habits. This includes placing chopsticks horizotionally since Japanese people only place chopsticks vertically during funeral conditions. Hence, this shows one example of how the cultural context effected our ethical decision making. I believe other personal ethical choices can be seen through my efforts of switching from private car to public transportation and frequent beach cleanups.

Students are able to identify and demonstrate their understanding of global issues, make responsible decisions, and take appropriate action in response to the issue either locally, nationally or internationally.

The student:
– recognizes the global implications of local issues
– is able to identify global issues in the local or national community
– shows awareness of issues of global importance and takes concrete and appropriate actions in response to them either locally, nationally or internationally
– gets involved in CAS projects addressing global issues in a local, national or international context
– develops awareness and responsibility towards a shared humanity.

 

Developing awareness for our own community is the first step in targeting global issues, and I have shown this by my beach cleanup example mentioned in the previous iFolio post. For the past year, Hong Kong’s air pollution has increased significantly as the air pollution index always shows dangerous levels for outdoor activities. In order to target environmental problems, the beach cleanup was used to help reduce the impacts. However, in order to personally reduce the amount of air pollution created, I have tried to take less private vehicles and switch to other methods of transportation like public buses or trains to travel around Hong Kong. This method of reducing air pollution has only very little effect on solving the problem, however, I believe we need to slowly adapt and get familiar with a more green lifestyle.
