My Image of Greatness was Misty Copeland. I Thought Misty Copeland was great because she kept pushing to become the best even though her growing up was hard. I admire her because she started dancing so late in her life and people doubted her and told her she was never make a successful career out of dancing.
I think the part i'm most proud of is the final product, and seeing it all together. I am also i'm proud of how my board turned out, I thought it was going to be really bad but it was actually a lot better than I had expected. I think the reason why i'm the most proud about the finished product is because going into this my idea was very different than what I had imagined in my head. I also thought this project was going to be very easy but it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.
The most challenging part of this project was probably deadlines or writing my paper. The reason I think these three things were the hardest is because with the deadlines they were all on canvas and I don't like using canvas and I often would check it another part is that it some things I completed before the deadline and some it took me longer than the deadline. With the writing my paper part I was just having trouble getting my notes into an order that I liked.
I think I grew as a learner during this unit with my bibliography skills, before I had some knowledge before but my skills improved a lot more. I now actually enjoy citing sources. I also think i improved on the research skills.
My work could have been improved by going more into depth on my research because I had enough but you can always get more. I think if I had more time to research I would have had a much more detailed project. because you can always find more. I also think my work could have been more improved by being more neat and organized. I decided to make my time line by hand and I think I should have made it by hand.
I think the best part of the Images of Greatness Celebration was the field trip I had a lot of fun and thought it was a really fun experience. Another thing I enjoyed was actually making my board i had never spray painted before and I actually enjoyed it. I also like picking out pictures and putting them on with the frame. I actually had a lot of pictures that I didn't use.
My favorite part of the field trip was probably the art museum or the breakout room. I really enjoyed the breakout room because I like to solve puzzle and stuff like that. the breakout-room actually kind of made me mad though because we were ready to break out we had the code but we had forgot the last digit. The last digit was 9 so now I don't like that number, but now me and the people in the room joke about it. I also really liked seeing all the art in the museum it was so pretty. I also thought it was a really cool opportunity to see all these famous artist work that we had learned about in art work.
I learned the most at the world food prize center. I thought it was really cool that it started in Iowa. It was kind of confusing though, I would like to learn even more about it and come back again. I thought the room downstairs was the best I liked the screen that showed the population and how fast it grows. I also really liked the photography room.
The part of the field trip that surprised me the most was the IMAX. The IMAX surprised me the most because I thought I wasn't going to enjoy it at all and it was going to be boring but it was actually one of my favorite parts.
My team didn't break out of the escape chamber. But were very very very very close to breaking out we had solved all of the puzzles and we had the code we just forgot the 9 bullets and that made me angry but other than that it was super fun. I think the best part of the trip was the breakout room.
I think the best part of goal is getting to do all these fun projects. Some advice I would give to a goal student trying to succeed is have a growth mindset. I would warn them about deadlines they are closer than they appear. They should be excited about not having reading 6th and 7th grade they should also be excited for mock trial I think its one of the best units we do. I think I will miss having Mrs.Edlin as a teacher and getting to do all of this independent work and unique projects.
