second trimester. At times when my group was starting to get off task I took leadership to get everything organized again/back to normal again. Using Critical Thinking/Innovative Problem Solving: I thought critically on every unit in all my class to get to learn about the main focus and connect it with other things. Demonstrating Technological Savvy: I used tech savvy when I used the computer for alsmost all the projects. When I was tech savvy I either research, figure more about a certain topic, type documents and create presentations. Sometimes I multitasked as well. Appreciating Cultural Diversity: I appreciated cultural diversity when I learned about the Horrors of Slavery and learned that the Africans were treated different just because of their color. Thinking Globally: I thought globally when I related with what we did in classes to the outside world. I got to connect things from the Horrors of Slavery to how it still exists in the modern world today. GOALS: After looking over your information above, please set two goals for yourself. One must be academic and one should be based on the pillars. Explain how you will try to reach these goals. Goal 1: Pass portfolio with honors, I hope to reach this by making my portfolio site amazing and practicing public speaking in all my classes in front of my peers. Goal 2: Continuing relating to the pillars after middle school, I hope to reach this by making them part of my daily life in the future as they already are now. Goal 3: Have success in my future life as I did here and keep my academic grades up.
