1. This unit I have been learning about the world’s most populous which is China. I have learned about how China has to try and meet such a big goal of having enough space and food for everyone in the country. They are trying to have a birth rate equal to the number of deaths each year so that the population won’t rise nor decrease. I have thought about the plans China has about generating more clean electricity and promote economic growth but slow down the population growth. I think that China really needs to think about decreasing the number of births because if this continues and China experiences a disaster such as a drought, there won’t be enough food and people will die causing the economy to slow down.
Here is a picture of the population growth in China and how it keeps rising:

2. I am aiming for badge #2 this unit. Last unit I got badge #3 which I was okay with. This year I would like to try and reach for a better badge. I will aim to get this badge my using my more time during weekends to study for upcoming tests in social studies and put in more effort into my work. Some of the work and projects I have done last unit could have been better because I was more rushed and didn’t have time. Now I can take for time to do a better job so that I could receive the second badge.
3. My goal from the last post reflection was to try and find a way to store all my data in a chart or graph so that it can be easy for me to learn and study from. I could make something like a KTW chart which I explained in my last reflection post which helps me store and memorise data. I have started to make a graph with all my information but having frequently checked it. I have been busy and not have a chance to add more information to my chart. Over the next few days, I think it would be a great idea to re-read the chapter and add any important notes into my studying. I could also complete the interactive online reading challenge.
4. I just had my conferences last week and they went very well. I was happy about my grades. For work habits, I got all consistent which is something I am really proud of. During the conferences we also talked about my goals, and things I should improve on. The one thing I found that I should improve on are my critical thinking explanations. I have gotten some AE’s on this part of tests because I usually lose control of the question and write unnecessary things in my answer. My goal is to try to make sure my answers clearly relate to the critical thinking questions because adding unnecessary information can give me lower grades. Over all, I am very happy about my performance in class and hope to keep up the good work.
