- During Quarter 1, what went well for you? Examples: being back in the classroom, having only two courses, seeing my friends, keeping up with homework, playing volleyball, improving math, helping plan a virtual assembly, becoming more fit.
|What went well for me in quarter 1 was, being in person, having only two courses, and getting to do safe hands-on projects. For me, I have found some of the online classes hard to focus on because there are a lot of distractions in my house and I feel more motivated to do work. Having only two classes was great as well because then I didn’t feel overwhelmed with a bunch of work and it was a great way to ease back into school after being gone for about 6 months. Lastly having hands-on projects safely was great for me because I am a kinesthetic learner, so I found that I understood more.
- During Quarter 1, what did you find challenging or disappointing or stressful? Explain.
|I found that doing online half the time, and being less hands-on, and how fast everything was, was a bit challenging for me. I found that with online school it was hard to focus on home and It was hard to be motivated. I am a kinesthetic learner, so I love to work with my hands, so it was a bit hard not having as many labs and projects. Lastly how fast everything was very stressful because it was hard to get everything stuck in my long-term memory.
- Think of ONE thing you really want to improve in Quarter 2 (and Q 3&4). Examples: a school subject, a sport, time spent on homework/studying, playing a musical instrument, leadership skills, a language, photography, a relationship, general fitness.
|I would like to improve my time management in quarter two.
- What are two specific actions that you can start doing every day to get closer to your goal? How long will you spend on this action each day? What part of the day?
|a) I am going to find an agenda app that allows me to put in my homework, so I stay on track.
b) I will take out some time in a day to organize my day and read emails/ look at teams.
- If you experience challenges, what might you do to work through them? Examples: ask help from a friend or parent; break the task into smaller chunks; “google” how other people may deal with similar problems.
|I can ask my parents to remind me if it does not look like I am doing my daily tasks. I can also set timers on my phone to read emails and go on teams every day. Lastly, I can ask my teacher questions if I forget anything that is due.
