My work habits for this unit are okay. I have two inconsistents, the rest are consistent. The areas I need to improve on are completing assignments on time and beginning class with the right materials. This is because I had to get two orange slips in the first few weeks. When I did a self reflection for my work habits, I rated myself with low scores in paying attention in class and working well with others in class. However, Mr. Pierce thought I was consistent in those areas. I seldom used my KTW chart, which I kind of regret because it could have be useful for studying for the tests.
Something I mentioned on the Unit 1 Thoughts survey was that the most frustrating part of the unit for me was the native American creation stories dance. Others may disagree, but I just didn’t feel like it was necessary. I would have much preferred to just read the stories. I really felt uncomfortable doing the dance, although I’ll probably remember it for years.
The badge I got was the silver Iroquois League Badge. This was because I had some AE’s, but I had mostly ME’s. My work habits could use some tweaking. I agree with Mr. Pierce, this is the badge for me. I just feel like maybe I deserve a bronze after my performance on the native Americans summative.
A strategy that worked for me would be using the dolls and finding information about them. A strategy that didn’t work would be the dance (again).
For unit 2, I’m going to study harder (and more) for the assessments.
