History Unit 1 : Reflection

Reflection: Types of Conflicts

 

 

In this chapter, we have examined different types of conflicts revolution, civil war, coup d’état, the cold war and civil disobedience. We have learned the characteristic of each of these conflicts, and look at what lead to these conflicts to happen.

 

Reflection on our learning…..

Use this table to reflect on your own learning in this chapter

Questions we asked Answer we found Any further questions now?
Factual There are many different types of conflict that were covered in this unit which I previously never knew. I learned more about how each conflict has their own benefits and consequences and the differences and similarities between the different types of conflict.

 

1.Are there still any more conflicts that we haven’t covered?

2. Is there one conflict which is more effective then the other?

 

Conceptual  

Systems break down because either one party or a community is unsatisfied with the current government so they want change in the system by using one of the types of conflict to create change by overthrowing or persuading the previous leader to leave.

1.           Are there more peaceful ways to deal with a system breaking down?

2.           Why can’t systems just adapt to the community’s idea or listen to their opinions?

Debatable I don’t think groups or nations have the right to cause death or destruction, even though most countries end up using destruction or death to strike fear amongst the opposition. Many conflicts in recent years are done with each civilian/individuals making their own decision in supporting the movement knowing that their fate may be affected by it. 1.           Is there a way to lower the causalities and destruction level in conflicts?

2.           At the end of conflicts, is it ethical for the victor to cause even more deaths or destruction?

What aspect of the Unit did you enjoy the most? Explain I enjoyed learning about the different types of conflict and their benefits and consequences. I also like the question “what led to the system to break down” as its similar to questions regarding why the conflict started or how the conflict started which lets me have a better understanding of why the conflict even happened in the first place.
What aspect of the Unit did you find challenging? Why? Explain how you tried to overcome this challenge. The most challenging part of the unit is knowing the differences I as get confused by many of the different conflicts. For example, I still get confused about proxy wars and civil wars as they are quite similar.

 

Unit 3 : The Global Impact of Buisiness

1. How does what I have learned help me to understand the relevant SOI?

SOI: Students understand that businesses interact in a global environment and are held accountable (ethics) by society for their actions

In the unit, I have a deeper understanding of how some actions of businesses have led to unethical or ethical consequences and also how companies maintain their ethical position. I also have a deeper understanding of what is ethical and unethical which can also help promote businesses as some customers only purchase ethical products. Furthermore, I have understood how businesses interact with the global environment as every action or move they make will impact the environment and society.

2. How does what I have learned fit within the relevant global context?

What I’ve learnt fits with the relevant global context as businesses must deduce their morals and strive for more ethical goals. There are restraints to companies when ethical and unethical positions are put into play but companies my choose between their profit and their ethics. Ethics can be developed overtime and this may lead to companies being more successful but it would take time, so some businesses forget about their morals and become unethical.

3. How does what I have learned help me to answer the relevant inquiry question(s)?

The things I’ve learnt have helped me answer most of the relevant inquiry questions, I was able to develop what I thought was ethical and unethical and this may help develop my company’s morals as each individual company have their specific morals or ethical views.

4. How does what I have learned connect with what I have learned previously to enrich my understanding of the SOI?

In this unit, I’ve learned how some companies stay competitive by trying to become more ethical as people may choose their product for they ethical image. Ethics tie into every unit we learned as every actions developed will impact the environment in many different ways. This includes from the amount of material a specific product needs to the amount of workers needed to build the factory.

5. Examples of real-world situations that help explain the content further?

An example of a real-world situation is vegetarians or pescetarians who believe the treatment and the slaughter of animals is unethical. Businesses that serve just vegetables or vegetarian restaurants still stay competitive in the market as there is a growing number of vegetarians and this may increase their profits. Other major food companies begin to add more vegan options in their menus so there would be a larger target of customers and this may help boost their profits. Another real world example would be products containing parts of animals, this may include fur or horns and they are becoming less and less popular in the modern culture, many believe that killing or hunting animals for their fur is unethical but some companies continue these actions as they have targeted customers.
