Socials Midterm

  1. 1. Socials Midterm BY: CHRISTINE MCCULLOCH
  2. 2. This Midterm  Since the very start of socials from our Eminent person project, we have covered a lot of material and done so much with it. From the Night of the Notables, blog posts, and role-playing, there isn’t much we haven’t covered. This midterm will be all about the Prescribed Learning Outcomes I met (and didn’t meet), along with the reflection on my personal learning.
  3. 3. Successful Learning Outcomes I FEEL THAT I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY LEARNED AND ACHIEVED THE PLO’S A1, A3, AND B2
  4. 4. Learning Outcome: A1  A1: A1 is all about applying critical thinking skills, and with the discussions and debates we had in class along with the Confederation blog post/tweets, I think I successfully achieved this outcome. In the debates and roleplaying (tweets, blog post), we had to defend the position our character was passionate about and compare the range of points of views that people had on the Confederation. Another part of A1 is drawing conclusions about an issue, and with the debates my partner and I had to come to a conclusion and see what would be best for our country at the time. Another part of the PLO A1 is that we had to compare a range of points of view on an issue, and with the class discussions indicates that I achieved this PLO. We talked about what each population wanted at the time, and I discussed what Newfoundland wanted during the Confederation, and I compared that to what other colonies wanted. Opinionated tweet Opinionated blog post
  5. 5. Learning Outcome: A3  A3: The learning outcome A3 is about demonstrating effective written, moral, and graphic communication skills, individually and collaboratively. A part of this learning outcome is communicating your arguments, opinions, and ideas in written and oral forms, and I think the final addresses and debates show my proficiency in this learning outcome. The final addresses allowed me to share my ideas and opinions, in character on the confederation. This is the same thing with the debates, as I argued with another person about our ideas and opinions on the confederation. Another part of this PLO is individually/collaboratively creating presentations that integrate a variety of media, and both the final address and debates cover this PLO as well. We had to plan, revise, and deliver those presentations, so that shows my proficiency in that area as well. My final address
  6. 6. Learning Outcome: B2  B2: this learning outcome is about evaluating the impact between aboriginal peoples and European explores and settlers. Even though I wasn't an aboriginal person for the role plays, I was really interested in the interactions between the two races. In my CRAAP testing blog posts I discussed the contributions the aboriginal people made to the development of Canada, and also how the aboriginal people influenced Canadian Identity. I think that blog post along with the debates I participated in (which involved those two achievement indicators) show my knowledge in that area. In the debates I debated with a slave that wanted rights, and that led to talking about Aboriginal people and their rights. I also learned a lot and contributed when we discussed the aboriginal people's role in the confederation in class. My CRAAP Testing blog post
  7. 7. Learning Outcomes That Need Improvment I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN AND DISCOVER MORE ABOUT THE PLO’S B1, B4, AND D3.
  8. 8. Learning Outcome: B1  The learning outcome B1 is analyzing Canadian society in terms of gender roles, ethnicity, daily life, and the arts. Although we did a small about of comparing the roles and activities of men and women, I would like to learn more about this and also the other indicators. We did talk a bit about the ethnic minorities in discussions, but I don’t feel like I have fully met that indicator.  We will probably talk more about this PLO in the future as the range is from 1815-1914 and we are in the middle of that right now. Hopefully with projects or assignments I will have met this PLO in the future.
  9. 9. Learning Outcome: B4  To fully meet the PLO B4, you need to describe the factors that contributed to a changing national identity. In class discussions and readings, we did cover the development of Canada’s identity as a French and English country. This indicator included events like the Act of Union and Durham report. Even thought we did cover this, I still feel like I could learn more about this PLO. We haven’t really talked about immigration and Canada yet or events such as the Boer war, Naval Act, or the Alaskan Dispute. I don’t know a lot about these particular events and I would like to learn more about them in the future.
  10. 10. Learning Outcome: D3  The PLO D3 is about the development of British Columbia’s economy, and since we live in British Columbia, I think this PLO is really important, but I haven’t really explored it or learned a lot about it yet. We haven’t really talked about the resource based industries that BC had, or the shift in trade patterns in class yet, but I know since we live in this province, that we will have discussions about this in class. These discussions will give me an opportunity to meet this outcome.
  11. 11. Reflection on Personal Learning WHAT I'M DOING WELL AND WHAT I COULD DO BETTER
  12. 12. Reflection  WHAT I AM ALREADY DOING WELL  The main thing I feel that I am doing well is actually understanding the content and producing good quality work from that. If I didn’t understand anything that was being said, the quality work I would be producing would be minimal. I try my best to pay attention in class so I can understand the content, and from that create quality work.  WHAT I COULD WORK ON  I think the main thing that I could work on is participating more in class. I will occasionally raise my hand or contribute to the discussions, but I could do it more often. By participating more in this one aspect I would gain more knowledge and understanding of the topics being discussed, but also gain more confidence for the future.
