After we finished our unit on How We Express Ourselves, we have started the new unit called How We Organize Ourselves.

At the beginning of every unit, every table group gets a long piece of paper, and words from the Central Idea. But the hard part in this assignment, is that the words from the central idea are all jumbled up in pieces, so we have to figure out what the central idea really is.

As for my group, after we put the central idea together, we thought it was “The organization of marketplace is determined by operation and the communities in which they are located.” But after we have had the class discussion on what the other tables have thought the central idea was, it was “The organization and operation of marketplaces is determined by the communities in which they are located.”.  Out of every group in the class, only one group got it right.

But nobody got sad or angry because everybody was close to the real central idea and it was fun working together even though we had some ups and downs on the way.

Reflection on HWEO

by 084387 on November 1, 2011

   In this unit the most important things that I have learned is about the principles and elements of design.

   The elements of design are line, shape, form, color, value, texture, space and perspective. The principles of design are pattern, rhythm, movement, proportion, balance, scale, unity and emphasis.

    I feel that that is important to learn the elements and principles of design because I never knew what they meant, what they are, and that you can find them anywhere.
