Chinese reflection

What I learned in this class:

I learned different words and how to write them, and how to use them in everyday life. I also learned to read better, and write better.

Criteria, A, C, and D. What was hard, what was easy.

A- (video/ listening) criteria A was hard becauseI couldn’t read and understand all the words on the test, so I couldn’t answer the questions properly. Also there wasn’t enough time. What was easy about it, was the listening part. I understood all the words that were said.

C- (content of writing) criteria C was hard because I couldn’t describe the content I wanted to write. I knew what I had to write, I just didn’t know how to write some parts. The easy part, was the parts I knew how to write.

D- (language of writing) criteria D was hard because I am not very familiar with Chinese language.

My goals for Chinese:

My goals are to get better at criteria A since that was the one I got the worse score on. And to get better at reading and writing Chinese.

Class attitude

Overall I think my class is alright, not extremely good, nor is it really bad. I think I could improve if I tried. I need to improve my attention, sometimes I don’t pay attention.

Skills reflection

In P.E. class so far, I’ve learned to take risks. In the game where everyone is ‘it’, at first I just stayed away from everyone, because I wanted to make it to the end, but I was scared to getting tagged. Then I realised that I shouldn’t be scared, I could still tag people. So, when someone went after me, instead of running away, I fought back.

This can be applied in real life. For example, I am in the middle of a conflict. I could either run away or face my problems. It would be best to face my problems, because if you ignore them then they won’t go away. P.E. has taught me skills like these that I can apply in real life.

Swimming assessment reflection

I am proud of my written swimming assessment. Since I am new to CDNIS, and I haven’t been in all the swimming classes like my other classmates, I didn’t think I would do well. When I received the test, I looked over it and saw that it didn’t look too hard after all. When I got my grades, I was surprised that I did so well. I’m proud of myself because I still managed to do a good job despite not being there for most of the classes.

Ukulele recording

What was the inspiration for this song choice? 
I choose this song because it reminded me of one of my favourite characters, Ivy, in a book series I really like. The plot of that series revolves around how an evil group is trying to take over the society she lives in. Because of Ivy’s jealousy of her sister, the evil group were able to manipulate her to join their group. The song I choose, ‘control’, perfectly describes her struggles. the lyric ‘who is in control?’ links back to Ivy because to her it seems as if she doesn’t have any control over what is happening. The lyric ‘I couldn’t stand the person inside me, I turned all the mirrors around’ reflects how she became a spy, and switched sides. Overall I just think this song is a great representation of the plot and Ivy’s character.
How did your music classes as well as your previous music session and assignment prepare you for this assignment? 
I had to learn how to edit, add a drum track, how to record, and anything in garage band, since I haven’t had to use it before. I had to learn how to play the ukulele in a short amount of time.

I have developed the skills required to perform this music successfully over music this year. Explain… 
I have learned how to play the flute, the different notes that are required to play this, how to slur notes, and how to articulate them.
I demonstrated the application of skills to create a successful piece of music. This is as good as I can get it! Explain… 
This is the best recording I’ve done. On the other ones I’ve messed up on the slurring, the notes, the articulation. This one is better than all the others.
