Progress Updates

In our year 10 Humanities course we are researching a topic of our choice we had the opportunity to decide from the topic of civics, geography, history and economics. Our group has chosen history and the significant event we decided to do is the 9/11 attacks. We are going to produce a showcase our outcome in a exhibition in term 4.

Progress Update 1

Things we have achieved so far is:

  1. Chosen our topic of Interest
  2. Created an essential question
  3. Researched sources for our annotated bibliography
  4. Completed the annotated bibliography
  5. Started gathering resources and information for our exhibition display

Our Plan for the Project in the Future:

  1. At the end of week 1 we want to finish our planning for our displays
  2. By the end of week 1 also we want to have collected all the materials for the display
  3. Week 2, we want to be starting our display
  4. Week 3 we want to finish one of our displays and some what finishing the second display
  5. Week 4-5 we want to spend this time refining and polishing our displays and/or any other work

Some Challenges we had to face along the journey:

  1. We originally chose The Black Death but we found it hard to motivate ourselves to be focused on the topic/work, so we brainstormed other ideas and we picked a topic that everyone was interested in and is a lot better for our final outcome
  2. Technical difficulties with the forms link for our resources that were needed for the annotated bibliography

Progress Update 2

Overview:

My group and I have finished our plan for the year 10 HASS project and we are now starting to put all of our information into our end presentation. Specifically we are starting to construct the board and beginning to gather all the materials we need for the end result. We are also going to make our own people profiles (who were involved in the attacks) to pin on the board to help with the visual aspect of the board. The main idea of the board is to show and present the idea of the process of the planning before the 9/11 attacks happened. Throughout this whole process we are making sure that we are always incorporating the feedback we get.

The expectations of the board is to display the planning and process of the 9/11 attack. The idea is to organise it like a “Murder Board” and use yarn and pins to show all the details of the incident.

Things we have achieved so far is:

  1. Organised a zoom meeting with John Mahony, with the help of Mr Basell. He was a survivor of the 9/11 attack
  2. Prepared a series of question for the interview to ask Mr John Mahony to collect knowledge from the experiences for the 9/11 attacks
  3. Collected the information of the attack for our board as well as gather sources for our visual aspects of the display
  4. Created a plan of the layout of our display, roughly planning where the sources etc. are going to be placed
  5. Planned the list of materials that we need to purchase before the day of the exhibition to assemble our final product

Our Plan for the Project in the Future:

  1. Purchase the list of materials needed for the display
  2. Have the interview with Mr John Mahony and record the interview
  3. Listen to the recorded interview with Mr John Mahony to gather important information needed for the exhibition and editing the video so that it is presentable for the day
  4. Start printing and getting resources ready for the cork board that is going to be displayed on the day of the exhibition

School Experiences

Literacy mentors

At school during some lessons during English we do literacy mentors. Literacy Mentors consists of helping younger children with problems and difficulties with literacy like reading. During the period we help the kids read books that they present to us that are to their level of education. This opportunity helps me develop skills and learning experiences throughout my life and it can help me with opportunities in the future.

Teamwork and Leadership

Throughout the year 9 camp teamwork and leadership were two of the main skills everyone needed, but not just in camp but in general life as well.

Teamwork is a skill if everyone has it everything can come together smoothly and efficiently. Teamwork was used a lot around camp. For example, just doing normal activities like putting up tents used teamwork. If everyone used that skill and helped but the tent up as a team the tent was very easy and quick to put up. You had to communicate and help each other out when needed. Another example is doing team-building activity with Mrs Kirkham. It was called tarp volleyball, instead of using the hand, you needed to catch the ball with the tarp and try and fling it to the side of the opposition. Together as a team, we needed to work and communicate to be able to win because you definitely couldn’t win if it was a one-man game. My group worked together very well and it was a very close game.

Leadership is an amazing skill to have. You can go a long way with leadership. it can bring people to be more confident and also can help get things done successfully. Hiking in the gorge is a good example of leadership. Teachers would let the students lead the group to the area we need to go. The leader brought us along the track and we would get to our destination. We would put the person that had an injury in front to set the pace instead of leaving them far behind. Not only having leadership during physical activities there is leadership in simple everyday life. For example, organising the group to start cooking or taking to the role of cutting a certain food for that time of day. Being the person to lead the group and push them to be efficient, it gets the job done fast and in a satisfactory way.

First Bus Stop (on the way to camp Kalbarri)

2020 Year 9 Camp was also a great camp to make new relationships with new people and just getting to know new people. Even with the people you are close with camp is an event that you can make amazing long lasting memories with.
