I show social skills in school because whenever my friend or any of my classmates are talking I try my best to listen and take note of what they are saying. Also I think I show research skills by whenever I discover new information I write it down so I am able to remember it.
A skill I feel I need to work on is my communication skills because sometimes I get off task and talk while the teacher is talking or talk while we are supposed to be working so I need to really work on that. I can improve upon this by putting in the effort to listen to my teacher. In the middle school I will need communication skills because if I don’t know a due date for a project I won’t be able to hand it in on time.
In UOI I have a new understanding of mold because when we did the independent science experiment I found different findings in my experiment. When I did my hypothesis it was actually the other way around, I thought that the dish with more food would react faster and grow the most mold but the dish with less food reacted faster but didn’t grow the most mold. I thought that was very interesting.
I was using the concept of form when I was describing the form of the mold and what it is like when you see it, for example mold can be very colourful or it can be fuzzy. The section in which I talk about what mold needs to grow and how it works I was showing function. Responsibility is a concept I could have elaborated more on.
I feel I show cooperation in my daily life because whenever we have groups I try to communicate and work together properly. For example in the assembly I was cooperating with my group to figure out the script so we could do it on Monday. Also, I feel I have shown enthusiasm because when we have basketball games I always try to make an effort to cheer my team on. Another example is when we are in gym class and we play games I try to play my best game and have lots of fun while doing so.
Curiosity is an attitude I need to work on. I need to work on it because when we have a project sometimes I don’t really inquire further. I need to inquire further because then I will understand everything fully. I will use curiosity for future projects. Another attitude that I need to work on just a little bit is empathy because sometimes I don’t picture myself in the other persons perspective to see their point of view. If I did that more often I could make more friends and meet new people.
