Bethanys Exhibition Journal!!

  1. 2. Issues and Solutions Our actions can lead to positive change. Issues, problems, issues! There are big and little issues and problems that concern a lot of people. Some problems and issues have obvious solutions while some issues and problems seem to have no solution. In your Exhibition process you will get a chance to apply your skills as an action taker to some of these issues and problems. You will be choosing a real problem(either local or global) and carefully working through to a solution and take some action to help this issue or problem. Working through this Exhibition journal will help you organize your time and resources to discover the best solution to your chosen issue or problem. Good luck!

  9. 10. Our Process – Searching and Collecting People to whom we spoke to: Name: Mrs. Sikora From this person we learned that there was a website that rejected animal testing. They were called ‘Beauty without Cruelty’. And we emailed them but we haven’t got a replied yet Name: From this person we learned Surveys we created and distributed The group surveyed: animal testing, good or bad. Number of people surveyed: 19 Important conclusion we can make from the results: The important thing about this survey is so we know how thinks animal testing is good or bad. Important information from our advisor: Was that we should do a survey.
  10. 11. Process Reflection These are things I thought about our topic before BUT now I think differently I thought that it wasn’t going to be so scary than it archly is. The are ideas we had about our problem/issue before and I still have now We had a problem that people didn’t know that the products they use is animal testing. These are things about our problem/issue that still challenge us and we still wonder about We are worried that people don’t realize how mean some people are to animals. We would like our audience to leave our presentation with these “BIG UNDERSTANDINGS” Of not to buy products that don’t have the leaping rabbit. (if a product has this sine it means they don’t test on animals) Synthesizing and Connecting Our actions can lead to positive change.

Write down all possible answers. Do not discard any yet because this is your chance to start thinking outside the box to find a creative solution. Be creative, unusual, fanciful, practical and obvious. S T R E T C H your imagination! </li></ul><ul><li>We could solve this problem by looking at the label to see if it has the symbol that it is not tested on animals .Or if it says not tested on animals on the label. Also we are making flyers, a poster, a power point and a skit. </li></ul>Our actions can lead to positive change.

  13. 14. Make your Action Plan Our actions can lead to positive change. How will your action affect your problem? If affects to my problem because the website we emailed hates animal testing. Who needs to be convinced? Every one needs to be convinced. What objections might you come up against? An objections we got where what if they need to test on a animal, because in England there is a law that you have to test on 2 animals for medicine not for make up. How can you overcome those objections? We could write to these companies. What resources will you need? We will need computers, books and other resources. Who can help you? My advisor and Mr. Alen. Where should you begin? We should begin with research and then plan what we are going to say. What will be your next step? Practice every thing we are going to say. Who will do what to achieve your action? By getting a reply from the website.
  14. 15. REFLECTION Acting and Sharing We can make a difference The action we took was emailing a place that hated animal testing also we made flyers, a power point and a poster. It went really well we got a reply after a very long time and I don’t think they understood the thing we where trying to tell them. But the poster and flyers and power point looked really well.
