我的中文口語考試

在星期一,我做了一個口語考試,今天我會說一說我說了什麼。評估是你要說你的橫梁設計圖兩分半鐘。我準備得好,準備了三天,我準備了一個提示卡説。我覺得我可以説到時間,但是我沒有說到兩分半鐘,我的老師問我一些問題完成的時候是兩分半鐘。我覺得我說得流利,但是我看的時候,覺得我有一點笑聲。 我下一次會大聲一點說話

Young Americans Reflection

Today I’ll be reflecting on the YA Workshop that we did on Friday and Saturday (Jan 9-10 2020). Overall I feel that I did reasonably well since I didn’t simply not do anything if it was way outside my comfort zone since it’s pretty good to just go out of your comfort zone. I felt that this was a overall good experience that could teach you a lot about acting and music in general.

In the YA Workshop I learnedmany things, however there were some thing that stood out compared to the rest. These include how to dance fluidly, how to memorize things in a short amount of time and including fun while teaching to make it memorable. These three things are pretty essential when being a performer and the last one is good for teaching others. Now is time for the whole process of the YA Workshop.

The first thing that we did on Day 1 was watch the YAs do some dances. Then using the third essential performer skill they taught us how to do their dances and we went through the first batch of singing. Then on Day 2 we were taught the rest of the singing and dancing and some of us got solos in the final performance, Finally we did the actual performance and it was pretty great considering we only had 2 days to prepare for it.

Overall I think that we did well for the amount of time that we had and I hope to have another good experience like this one.

STP Activist Speech

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zzS0XlMAdPAB_lPcCh8BjtXA_aIwxn2P/view

On Tuesday I did my activist talk and overall I think that I did pretty good, however there could still be some improvements to be made so I will go through the process of my speech. I think that I did well on my delivery and the amount of facts that I included in my speech, I also think that I did well in speaking clearly and getting my point across. However I think that next time I need to look at the other areas of the audience, not just the left side of the audience. I also think that I need to project my voice more in order to be heard at the back of the classroom since the video was a bit quiet.

I think that the most challenging part was memorizing the script and getting a time under 2 minutes 30 seconds but I managed both in the end. I combated the challenges by finding strategies such as reading my script over and over again to remember it and I simply cut out the finer details to get it under 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Overall I feel satisfied with what I did in the speech but I still feel that I could improve even more.

 

G6 December Overview Blog Post

Overall I think that G6 is going pretty well since my exhibition has been going along rather nicely, here is a basic overview of the year so far. Overall in exhibition I think that my main achievements are getting my idea approved and getting my first Lines of Inquiry and Conceptual Questions approved too. However there are also some places that need improvement, I think that I need to use more persuasive strategies (ethos, logos, pathos).

I also think that I need to improve on my other writing styles since I prefer to do stories and persuasive writing which means that the other writing styles such as poetry get mostly ignored. I’m proud about getting my idea approved and using lots of ethos, logos and pathos, I’m also proud of finishing other projects such as the before exhibition project (mazes) and the Visual Arts final project where I used photos of myself and my football things to create a display. Overall plenty of stuff to be proud of.

I think that my goals from September have been fulfilled by now since I now (mostly) listen attentively and my time management is much better now especially compared to the beginning of the year and the beginning of Grade 5. I think that now is the time to make some new goals, My first new goal is to improve the quality of my home learning since I’ve noticed that I often go towards the easier home learning activities and I think I need to challenge myself. My solution to this issue is to start home learning planning on monday instead of waiting for wednesday like I usually do. My second new goal is to improve my division in math since that’s my weakest subject and I feel that I’m falling behind a bit. My solution to this problem is to practice more in class and also practice outside of class in my free time.

Overall I think that I did reasonably well, however I still have some way to go so hopefully I can continue that after the christmas break, goodbye for now.

PYPX Cover Reflection by Mango

I think that I did well on my cover since I started it on Thursday and finished it on Friday which I think is great since I can now focus on different things and complete different things.

The first thing that I did was to add some photos and make a rough draft which wasn’t too good but laid the baseline of what I would do next. Then I added some new photos and removed the less relevant ones, afterwards I fine tuned the photos then added the text, (around this point I began changing the font to see which was the most visually appealing) and I finished. I think I did well since I chose a font that was visually appealing and chose photos that accurately depicted depression (albeit in a more positive way) and all my photos were related to the subject.

Overall I’m happy at what I did and if I had to do it again I would do the same. There isn’t much left to say so goodbye.

PYPX Proposal Reflection

Last Thursday I did my PYPX Proposal and got approved, Overall I think I did a pretty good job so today I’ll do a reflection on what I did well, How I felt and what I would change next time.

Currently I feel relieved because it gave me a bit of stress and I’m glad that that’s over with. I also feel sort of nervous again because soon enough I will have to start interviewing other people and taking action to try and change people’s thoughts towards depression.

If I could do it again I would change two things. The first change I would fix is going into more detail about how I was going to present my ideas to the general public and how I was going to convince people to empathise with people suffering from depression more often. My solution to this issue which was helpfully suggested by my judge during the proposal was to create pamphlets to hand out to people to try and convince them to empathise with people suffering from depression. The second change that I would fix is not making the mistake of steering closer toward the dark side of depression and less towards the lighter side of depression. What my judge recommended that I do was to steer away from dark topics such as suicide and go toward more light and more positive topics such as how to help build empathy with suffering people.

Overall I think that even though I missed some things I think I did reasonably well and I feel satisfied with the work I did to make the proposal work. I know that there is a long journey ahead but this is a great start and I hope to further build on this topic.

 

 

Mango’s 100 Challenge By Mango

Today me and my group(James,Warren,Kaz,Mango) finished our 100 Challenge, now time to explain the game. The aim of the game is to write equations that end up in each number for example 9^2+3 is 84 so we’d write it in no. 84. You got a point for each non-whole number used, each correct equation, each correct square root and finally each exponent. You got half points for each correctly used bracket and you got 8 additional points if everyone in your group spread the work evenly. I think that our 100 Challenge was a success because we spread the work evenly and we had a even spread of easy and hard equations and everyone had a question that fit their level (at least in our group that was true). However I think that some questions are way too hard and can only really be checked by a calculator which is what I’ll work on next time.

My goals for the future by mango

Here are my goals for the future, I think that my two goals are realistic and probably can all be done before Christmas.

My first goal that I want to work on is managing my time better. I think this goal in reasonable because at the moment I rush through home learning every week because I do everything on Thursday which isn’t good because there might be a Chinese test on the day. This is relevant to Grade 6 because when exhibition happens we will have to manage our time extremely well to complete everything and without good time management we won’t be able to do that. I know I have completed my goal when I don’t feel rushed while doing home learning and while revising for any upcoming chinese tests. I will try to complete my goal by Christmas.

My second goal is to listen better in class. I think this goal is reasonable because at the moment I often either daydream or get distracted in class and forget important stuff that I’ll need to remember in the future. I will achieve this by attempting to remove any distractions that may cause me to get distracted, I’ll fix the daydreaming by attempting to focus better while doing everything. This is relevant to Grade 6 because we will have to listen to our teachers a lot in order to learn what we need to learn for exhibition. I know I have completed my goal when I know exactly what I need to do exactly when all the time. I will try to complete my goal by Christmas.

Overall I think that both of my goals can be done by Christmas and hopefully I can make a blog post by christmas, for now adios.

HL Reflection Bloggo Post

This is my HL reflection because this is the fifth week of home learning and I think that after a month we should probably do a reflection so here we are doing a reflection. In my opinion in this week’s home learning I tried really hard to make it look at least aesthetically pleasing which I think I succeeded at, judge for yourself in the pictures at the bottom. For this week I chose typhoons because it’s a subject that being in a place where there are plenty of them I know a lot about typhoons. For this week I also chose the math of matter because I thought that it would be a challenge deciphering math such as one-hundred thousand quadrillion vigintillion and 3*10^25 and it was pretty hard deciphering these numbers but I got there in the end. Finally I chose states of matter and I did this on canva, this was the hardest in terms of trying to make it aesthetically pleasing and not look sloppy but finally I got something that I worked hard and felt like it was done. This is my HL reflection for Week 5 and overall this week I think it’s pretty good, if you want to check out the actual HL check out the pictures  below.
