自我評量表(陌生人)

我覺得我把這些閱讀活動做得不錯,因為我使用了很多時間去讀,了解故事裡有困難的詞語。故事也挺有趣的,但是它們都很長,除了三,四個故事。‘陌生人’ 這個故事是最感動的一個故事,因為這些悲慘的事情有一天可能會發生在你身上。我喜歡這個活動但是如果我們下一次又多一點時間會更好。

December Test Reflection

Theory Test

I feel like I did not do very well on the test because I did not study enough of the triads, diminished notes, and transposing instruments. Over 95% of my marks were lost from triads, diminished notes and transposing instruments questions. I should have made more notes on the topics I was unfamiliar with earlier so I know what to study when revising for the test. This will be a mistake I will learn from for more upcoming music tests and can be applied to other subjects also. I was one mark away from a 6, which is sad in every way. Two marks were taken away because I drew an ugly treble and bass clef, which I need to improve for next theory test if I don’t want to lose more marks.

 

Music Composition and Playing Test

The music composition and playing test were quite rushed because of all the other assessments which were occurring at the time. I think I did well when showing my knowledge of composing jazz music. I used a variety of notes and different rhythms to show my understanding of general music knowledge. I used various dotted rhythms and my piece had a swing feel throughout the entire piece. The composition took me a little bit more than one hour to finish, it was pretty well done apart from the final bar when I ended the blues solo on the tonic note which sounds atrocious. The composition was pretty good, but I could have changed a few minor details to make it better

Linus Lan – Shenandoah Reflection (Grade 9 Music)

 

I have demonstrated my knowledge of rhythm and effectively by evenly playing the tied notes. Also I keep in time throughout the whole piece. My notes were pretty accurate, I got no wrong notes but some of them could have been more clear. There was a buzzing sound also as I was plucking the string on some of the notes, which is the main thing I need to improve on for next time.

My Educational Board Game – Linus Lan

I have found out through analysing four very famous board games (Risk, Chess, Battleship or Monopoly) that they all need strategical thinking to even get close to winning. For example, in Battleship you need to think from the other person’s point of view. In Chess, you have to try manipulate the other person to get their king in the position you want which is part of your plan to try get the king in Checkmate position. In Risk, you have to try conquer certain territories depending on what troops you have there, or you might even set up temporary alliances. In Monopoly, it is mostly luck apart from the fact that you have to decide which properties/companies to buy, whether you want to buy a few expensive companies, or all the cheap ones.

 

I have done some research about any fun single player games. I found an example of a board game consisting of many cards. Not regular cards with the aces, club, hearts and diamonds symbols. But self illustrated cards. The theme is about someone who gets stuck in the forest. There are a few decks of cards which consist of different stages. Some provide food and water, some provide weapons, some provide obstacles like wild animals, and one deck even consists of clues of where the forest exit is.

 

I will try and follow this idea by adding my math concepts in the map. Basically, you need to get the math concepts correct to progress throughout the map and get certain cards to increase your knowledge of getting out of the forest or some other biome. The concept will be the same, trying to get the character to a certain place while adding educational math concepts in order to progress. This will make learning more fun for the player than just going online and watching tutorials. There is an answer deck, a question deck and a tutorial deck in case you don’t know how to do the problem.

1)How did you become more aware of your own strengths and areas for growth?

I have learnt that I can lead a group and I have to work on my communication skills with people I do not know well.
