My two strengths of group working are creative writing and collaborating. My two weaknesses are taking initiative and flexibility. For me when I’m in a group it's easy for me to come up with new and creative ideas for the team to use. I often times work well with others and I enjoy kind of sharing the work and doing things together. But I am not always willing to use other people's ideas because I am not one to put my trust into certain ideas. Another thing I struggle with is taking initiative for myself. I often times get to distracted or maybe depend too much on a person. For example with our rube I often times get really distracted with my peers or with certain objects like the piano. But then I usually make my come back by figuring out new ideas of how to improve on our rube or how to fix or change something that isn’t working. Now that I have been working with more and more people I have began to become more flexible but only with certain people and certain ideas. I can start to take initiative for myself and my actions by advocating for myself and taking myself out of distracting situations.
I wish to see success and I wish for the community grow in the knowledge about society and maybe start to think about ways we can improve to make the cycle better. I am hoping that we can sort of change their lives by helping them think and maybe changing their views.
I would like for the parents to realise how much time and effort we are going to be putting into this and I want the to be able to walk away with something new. A new view on things, new thoughts and idea’s and I hope that they will speak up and maybe say those new ideas. I would also like for them to try and relate to it and start to really think about society and how damaged it really is. I would like them to say I want to help. If a Sociology professor were to say something I would hope it would be just a nice comment and I hope that they are impressed or maybe tell us something to get me and others thinking a little bit more.
We look at the facts, or we try and relate it personally. If you can relate then how can it be false. Some of the things we are saying could be false but I don’t think anyone really knows though. Most of this is just us going on our unique thoughts. But that’s all we really can do, is go off of are new and unique thoughts and ideas.
In Humanities we have been learning about socialization and we have been working on our exhibition and figuring out ways to make it unique, fun, and educational. We all had different visions for the exhibition and how we wanted it to look. So we split into groups accordingly and we created prototypes for what our ideas for the exhibition. We hung them up around the school and had the school give us critiques and ideas. We didn’t get like any reactions though, so then we refined our ideas as much as possible and we as a combined class, with Steven’s 1st and 2nd, and my class, Sara’s 1st and 2nd, voted. Steven and Sara took the top three and combined them. So now the idea for our exhibition we have the idea of choose your own adventure, mixed with kind of a maze idea and more. Now we are trying to figure out ways of creating it and what each one of our jobs could potentially be depending on what we are interested in doing.
We are trying to address multiple things. We are trying to get socialization known. We are trying to give the members of the community some awareness of how messed up society really is. Hopefully doing it will cause others to think of things like solutions.
I am excited for the whole thing but mainly just the free range and getting to teach others about this very important topic
Probably performance because I enjoy performing and acting sometimes and just getting to connect with the project even more.
I need to be smart about picking group members. I need to pick those that I know are going to work hard but aren’t too serious and that I can have fun with.
