The End of the Year...

What were some of your goals at the beginning of this school year, both for school as well as for your personal life?

How many of these goals do you think that you have met? Can you please explain your answers?

For the goals that you've met, what helped you to meet those goals? Were there any people who helped you meet them, as well?

For the goals that you did not meet, what stopped you from meeting those goals?

What will be some of your goals for next year, both for school as well as for your personal life?

What have you learned about yourself this year, both as a student and as a person?

Do you think your English has improved this year? Why has it or hasn't it?


My goals for this school year is to finish all of my homework that my teacher had given to me. Another school goal is to have score that is not lower then 5 for my report. My personal life goal is to have a peaceful year but not having fights or troubles around the year, and to have many friends. I think I had met my personal life goal because I have very friends in the school and haven't gotten into fights or trouble. I had reached this goal because I had always be friendly and always helping my friends. So I got my friends in school. I didn't met my school goal because sometimes I still forget to do my homework. But it still not end-of-the-year report so I still have a chance. I think my goals for next year will be the same to have good scores and many friends. In this year I had learned to be a better students to finished all the work that the teacher asked to, and also to help people. My English had improved a lot this year because I had learned many about words, paragraphs and many more in the ESL. I think having ESL is the biggest reason that my English improves a lot.

Final Task: Analysis

My Unit of Inquiry that I had chosen is "Greek Gods", and my essential question is "How does learning the differences between Greek and Roman Gods help me understand my community?"I had dchosen Greek Gods because I had already read story about it before and I think it's really cool, and it will also be fun to do the project. Another reason I had chose this topic because it's not the kind of topic that you will need to literally make something. I had chosen my essential question because I think things that is happening to the Greek and Roman is repeating now. Like another country's culture influencing another contry's culture and many more. 

The three levels of Blooms Taxanomy were Knowledge, Comprehension, Application. Knowledge is where you gather up information for your topic. Comprehension is where you show your understanding of the information that you found. The Application stage is where you actually show your learning about your project. 
   
And here is my 3 stages:



My essential question is "How does learning the differences between Greek and Roman Gods help me understand my community?" I think that the influencing of Greek and Roman is going around the world now. Like a different country's food may be in your country. Or even the way people use to live is change because the influence of the other country. It is also effecting my school, like if a new students came in and he's thought may changed the others.

UOI Interview with Mrs. Raisdana

My three questions are:

1. Do you think that you have successfully shown your learning through the tasks that you've completed during this unit so far? Explain your answer.

2. Can you describe some problems that you had when completing your tasks for this project? What did you do to try to solve them?

3. Was this topic easier or harder than you expected it to be when you chose it? Explain why.

I had chosen my first question because I had shown clearly my leaning during the project. I had also choose this question because I think I had already shown my learning achieving most of the criterion.  I had chosen my second question because I had many problems during the project and I also did many things to solve them. I had chosen my third question because when the starting I really thought that this project is going to be easy, but it turns out that it's really hard.

I will prepare my answers by first write down the answers in a document, then print it out, after that I will staring to practice to the mirror by myself.

I think I had did quite a few things to prepare for the interview. I had prepared this Interview by writing my answers in a document then I practiced by myself to the mirror once a day. Then finally I memorized it all. In the interview, I think I had clearly answered each question that I picked for my topic. I also had written many details for my questions, not just "yes" and "no". Something I could had done differently is answer all the questions in a paragraph.

Here's the movie:

This kind of influence is also effecting our school, example if there is many good students the bad ones will also turn good. But if there is a lot of bad students in school, they will influence the other people thoughts and the other will also be bad.

My completed task had successfully fulfills my to do task because I had show how the Roman and Greek Myths effect each other and how it effects our community. I had also did what I had supposed to do, which is creating a video that is showing the effects.

Welcome to my Unit of Inquiry!



The topic I had chosen is about Greek Gods, and my essential question is How does learning the differences between Greek and Roman Myths help me understand my community? My AOI I had picked was Community and Service. My topics fits to the Community and Service because after learning about how the Romans Myths had  mix with the Greeks I can also know what had changed when something new had came in our daily lives. Also before choosing the topics, I had do some exercise and know that I am a kinesthetic learner which means I learn things by doing somethings.
