Our last blog post

As we have finished Exhibition, this is the last blog post as a group and we want to do it as a group so we can share our different perspectives together. Because we are at the end we are going to reflect on our collaboration as well as tell you our action plans. In our group we feel during exhibition we have achieved giving our message strongly and powerfully to other people. But as a group next time, we will be more collaborative and try to  resolve the conflict because we sometimes make little arguments over nothing. Some examples are when our group couldn't decide  a color scheme for our poster.

If you are reading this you may wonder through all this time what is Our Action? If you are really passionate about the littering problem  you can also help just by letting your family
and your sphere of influence know the horrible effects of litter, and here are our action plans.


Josh,  I am going to try and convince my family and friends to pick up litter if it is not too dirty, I am also going to try and get them to put things in the recycling or waste bin before they leave to different places or move to places.


Olivia, I'm going to tell my friends and family about litter and the consequences from the litter.


Alim, I am going to tell my family about all of the horrible effects of littering and after it becomes a habit to not litter I will try to spread the message in my communities because I know that littering has a lot of terrifying consequences so I will try to do as much as I can to prevent littering in my communities.  


Elina, “I am going to tell my family & friends to be more aware if they litter telling them why I think they might be littering and how to stop it.”


All in all, we have similar topics and those topics are to make changes in our spheres of influence and maybe if we achieve this we might try to make a difference in wider communities and maybe even different cities. We would also like to thank several people. The people are…


Ley choo, Ben Morley, Sarawani, Mrs Hillier and our parents
We would also like to thank our teacher Sarah La Caze and our mentor Deborah Gordon.

How I am feeling in Exhibition

Exhibition has been getting more serious. I know think that it is more tenses then before. Before it was easy and not as much time limit we where doing the same thing every day. But know we are doing something different everyday and getting closer. I am excited for it I feel that we are at a more of a fun stage. I am looking forward to making posters for Exhibition.

Staying on task

I have thought of several important reasons why we should stay on task...

1-
Because Exhibition is an important subject if we go off task we can go really slow and it takes us way more time than it should do to finish Exhibition. And our presentation is terrible.

2-
The more we are off task the more trouble you are in. So if  someone was playing a video game they will be told off and that would be annoying. Because you could do more valuable stuff.

3-
If you are off topic its useless I mean what's the poin't ?

I have given you these reasons but if you still are off topic most of the time than you should follow these tips...

  • Close all distracting tabs
  • If possible move from distracting people
  • Set yourself a goal to complete in the time you have today
  • Stay focused
I hope this information was usefull

Exhibition

This week in Exhibition we have been pulling together our research.
We have interviewed some people on litter and we have got all the research in one spot.
Today we worked on finding the main idea of our presentation/research it's not so easy.




When we were finding our main idea we had the ideas to what our main idea was, we just could not word it properly. We still don't know our main idea, it's hard to think of what you want your audience to walk away with.





We are soon going to be planing the presentation and making the posters so we are thinking of images to go on the posters. We made a google doc to put our final research in and then we will go through the information and double check it.
