How well did you communicate your experience as a Hong Konger? *
I feel like my piece, although inspired by Cindy and I’s poems, did not really relate to Hong Kong, as there are no obvious signs of Hong Kong and the audience would not be able to make a connection between our artwork and Hong Kong. Because I have lived in Hong Kong my entire life, My experience in Hong Kong isn’t as unique as others, what others deem as special I see as everyday life. My experience as a Hong Konger is understanding the beauty of Hong Kong is being hidden under the mounds of pollution we cause daily.
How would you describe your personal success as an interdisciplinary learner? *
Our artwork perfectly combines our poems into one unified piece that accurately shows our experience in Hong Kong as grade 8 students. We managed to carry our themes and convey it as well as we could on a non-verbal piece of art. We chose 2 of the 3 arts to focus on, music and visual arts, because we felt like those two media could best carry out our theme and intentions from our original poem. This project helped me a lot in understanding more about my poem because I need help from pictures to fully understand a topic.
How would you describe benefits of the interdisciplinary unit with specific examples. *
It allows students to carry one subject to another. We can use the skills learnt in one subject and use it in others, making none our learning pointless, also improving our real life skills. Students might be better at visual learning than verbal learning so putting those two together would mean students can understand a topic fully and deeply.
What were the limitations of the interdisciplinary unit? Give specific examples… *
This time it was only arts and english, but if the teachers incorporate more subjects for students to choose from, the students would have more space to work with. Also the expectations were a little unclear so it was a little confusing to decide on a piece to work on.
