Quote of the Day: 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.'
Morning Class: For morning class I had Cultural Diversity. To start the class we watch a short film on how some people can treat each other's on a tram. There was a person from a different country on the tram called Ibrahim, then there was Sue who was a bystander and then there was Rob he was being racist to Ibrahim just because he was not white. We watched the film once and then we watched it 2 more times but looking through Sue's eyes and Rob's eyes. We saw how different everyone can be towards different people, and that you don't judge someone just because of the way they look. Then we played a game were there were engineer, journalist and Derdians.
The Derdians spoke differently to the Australian's because when they wanted to say no they would nod there head and say " yes yes yes yes" and to say yes they would just go "yes". To greet each other you had to kiss one another on the right shoulder and you would always have to be touching them if they were speaking. I was a Derdians. But the engineers had to help us build a bridge because we didn't know how to but the thing is the girls from Derdia could not touch scissors and the boys could not touch sticky tape and rulers, and the journalist had to figure out how the Derdians worked. This game taught us all that we are all different and that we can all work together even if we are from different countries.
Afternoon Class: For afternoon class I had Question and Possibilities. In this lesson we learnt about POOCH which stands for Problem, Options, Outcomes, Choose and How did it go. I really enjoyed this lesson because we learnt about silly decisions and how to approach them. We spoke about how to approach somebody if they came up to you with a difficult question and how to help them and yourself.
Evening Class: For evening class last night we had PPL. PPL is about our portfolio, our portfolio is our weebly account, so when we leave SRC we can look back at everything we have learnt and experienced. But for the class we had to write a poem or a rap of how SRC has been so far. My poem was:
Snowy is great
But there is no snow
My friends call me mate
And the food is great
I have been riding my bike
And surfing the waves
Sitting watching the long summer days
Waiting for the perfect time to capture the rays.
I really enjoyed this activity because I pushed me to think outside the box, and see a different way to right.
Daily Reflection Challenge:
I think Madz has done well in her DEARR, and she has described everything very well. Also, she is very good at remembering pacific things, like how we played the games and why. She is also very good at poems, a lot better than me! She does well in the way she writes up about her day.
