I didn’t completely understand the text, however, I knew the main idea, recycling. But I understood some of the multiple-choice questions. I found the keywords in the multiple-choice questions and matched them from the question and the text. I thought that the writing questions were challenging because I didn’t read them properly, and I wrote too much. I definitely improved from last time, last time I didn’t understand the questions and the text, and I did not match the keywords. This time I did and got a higher score! The score I got was what I expected, but there is still room for improvement. Next time, I need to take my time and read the questions PROPERLY and CAREFULLY. I will continue to practice reading comprehension and try to improve.

A few months back, I started a design unit. The purpose of this unit is to learn about the design cycle, C.A.R.P, and to create a logo. Recently, I completed my logo and I am now receiving feedback. Something I would like to get feedback on is, “If the logo could be even more simple, what changes would you make? What would you take out?” “What changes would you make to make it more Versatile? (available to use for other companies.)” “What do you like about it?”
Giving the feedback would help a lot in making corrections. Thanks!:)
Task: Create a role-play to include all of the information you have learned since the beginning of the year.
- Pronunciation: Pronunciation was challenging as this is a new language. I always accidentally pronounce letters that are supposed to be silent(“S”).
- Developing the script: This was challenging because we found it troublesome when making our script longer. At the end we were successful.
- Time management: Developing the script took our time and at the end, we had to rush to class and finish our recording in minimal time. Therefore we only took one recording and didn’t have time to revise it.
What went well
- The work ethic of my partner: My partner did not cause any problems but helped make our script better. She also corrected my pronunciation.
- My partner and I both evened out each other meaning that one of us didn’t control one another.
- Although we had to come into class, we ended up handing in the assignment in time
Result: How do you feel about your results
- I wish I had gotten a higher result and had more time to revise and make multiple recordings. If we did that, we could have made changes.
The goal for the next assessment: how are you going to achieve your goal
- My goal for next time is to plan out my steps. For example, plan out how much time and when I will record or make the script. Most importantly to follow it. I am going to achieve this by putting a reminder on my computer. Like, a sticky note on the time I have to complete a task. To follow it, I will have my peers or my parents remind me. Or if I have free time at school, I’ll do it.
This week 6D started a new unit. This unit is about art. I chose to inquire into photography. I chose photography because even before this unit, I was interested in photography. This week I learned about, shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
Shutter speed is the time and speed of a camera window opening and the light that travels into it. If your shutter speed is set to a small number, your moving object will be blurry. That’s because the camera is taking a photo of multiple moments, therefore it will create a blurry trail. Sometimes your object is moving out of the reach of the camera(the camera is moving away from the camera). If your camera’s shutter is set to the speed of 3, but the object moves away from the camera in less than 3 seconds then the object will not be in your shot. That’s because the object has already past, or is not visible from the camera’s perspective anymore. The picture is captured slowly. If your shutter is set to a high speed, then your moving subject in the picture will be clear. The photo will be taken quickly and will take a picture of one moment.
Aperture is the amount of light that is captured. Aperture also controls the depth of field. The bigger the aperture is clear the photo will be. If your aperture is small, there will be a long depth of field. There will be a lot of distance and focus.
ISO is the sensitivity of the light in your scene, it controls the light. ISO can sense the light. The higher the ISO is the less light is required for it to be brighter.
All in all, this is what I learned this week. I gained a lot of knowledge about photography. I learned about ISO, aperture, and Shutter speed. Since I focused on shutter speed this week, next week my goal is to inquire more about aperture and ISO.
We have been working on our exhibition throughout the whole entire school year. Everybody worked hard and it’s officially over. My exhibition topic is the endangerment of Black-Faced Spoonbills. These birds are endangered all over East Aisa. I chose to inquire into these animals because they are not known. Not many people know them. Therefore, I wanted to let people know them, and help take action to save them.
I liked the way I could share my knowledge I have about my topic to others. I also really liked and am proud of my action, my action was going plastic free for 24 days. The plastic that was not recyclable would have to be put inside a jar, the jar will then be used to show if going plastic free is challenging or easy. I thought it was a good idea because it was challenging, it was something I wouldn’t do, it’s something out of my comfort zone. Normally, if I was going to take action I would just raise awareness and raise money for charities. Now I know that taking action means making a change in yourself and then others. I am also proud of my research and what I have learned.
Even though my action was one of the best parts of my exhibition, it was one of the most challenging things. It was hard for me to find my action, it was because before action meant raising awareness and money.
Thanks to the Plastic Free Challenge, it will now be easy to remember to use less plastic. Now after the challenge, I still use less and recycle more plastic. My next goal is to also get my family to use less plastic and recycle too.
My exhibition helped me understand how to take action and make a change, how endangerment has dominated our world, how we can recycle many things like glue sticks and some food packets, and how also how we have learned to rely on plastic.
Next time I will contact at least 5 experts in case some don’t reply, I need to work on my display, and not clump everything up at one spot. For instance, I put all the plastic-free challenge jars on one side, which sort of made the display messy.
Now after the exhibition, I can explain my lines of inquiry. For instance, the threats of Black-faced Spoonbills. The threats are pollution especially plastic, habitat loss and hunting.
Overall, I thought the exhibition taught me many things. Like, what action is, what are Black-Faced Spoonbills, etc. Even after the exhibition, I will continue to use less plastic and inquire into Black-Faced Spoonbills.
