- During Quarter 1, what went well for you? Explain. 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.
In quarter one I liked the pace that we learned everything because we were going really fast but it wasn’t too fast that I couldn’t understand what we were learning. I also liked the two classes I had because having Spanish in the morning was fun and not very hard then in science it was way harder but I also learned way more in science class. I liked in science how we would be taught a long lesson then we would do a lab or an activity to help us remember and I found that very effective especially when we were doing mitosis and meiosis.
2. During Quarter 1, what did you find challenging or disappointing or stressful? Explain.
At the start of the quarter, I wasn’t used to the workload, so I was still in the habit of procrastinating a bit but throughout the quarter I got way better at the doing the work right away. It was also challenging coming from getting 15-20 minutes of homework to having a few hours of it on some nights.
3. 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.
One thing that I would like to work on in quarter two is my grammar because it’s super helpful later in life and I know that I could be much better at using proper grammar.
4. 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?
I can pay attention to the grammar that the teachers use in emails and in class and take mental notes of that.
Every time that I write something for an assignment, I can run it through Grammarly until eventually by the end of the year hopefully I won’t even need to check it anymore.
5. 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.
If I’m facing a challenge with my goal then I can ask a teacher to help me with the problem and they will be able to show me how I can do it.
