I chose dance because I think I am very passionate about it, I have been learning dance since I was 1 and performing since I was 2 ,and ever since it has been my major priority and passion.
Town Hall Meetting
Town Hall Meetings are where the whole grade comes together and discusses a few important things about the unit this Town Hall Meeting we watched 2 videos which were metaphors for our exhibition. The two videos were-
1. These bicycle tricks performed by Danny Macaskill. This video was so motivational and showed that you shouldn't give up on what you want to do. Also it showed me that you have to be committed no matter what you want to do.
2. A video called Colours Of Reality it was about these 2 dancers who seemed to be animated at first covered in paint and dancing but further into the video it became so much more realistic.
Acquisition of knowledge- I learned new words in different subjects areas for example in hip hop i learned a 6th step, knee lock for ballet i learned plotless ballet, neo-classical ballet and more types.
Comprehension- I summarised information about all my research in dance and in our reflections.
Application- I explored different options when I was researching and i had so many different sites such as kidrex, kiddle, destiny quest, brittanica, safesearch, mymunka, askkids...
Analysis- I identified relevant and irrelevant information about dance such as where it originated and what is that type of dance like ballet, jazz, rock and roll, modern dance and more.
Listening- I listened to and followed difficult instructions when I tried B-BOY even though I was a hip-hop/contemporary dancer it was hard at first but the more I learnt about it and the techniques it became much easier.
Speaking- I presented to a range of audiences when I was practicing my dance, I did it in front of my group and mentor. I was also giving suggestions about how to frame a sentence or speaking about some interesting facts I got from my research.
Reading- I understood main ideas from the text and that helped me paraphrase all my research.
Writing- I recorded information and observations in different ways when I put it in a doc, also I took the new techniques, like a 6th step and added it into my dance.
During unit time today I think I was a good risk-taker as I agreed to perform a dance for the exhibition I have never performed style hip-hop for the school before. That's why i think I was a good risk-taker.
Today was a good day for me I found a lot of information on my topic and wanted to find more and more about it I answered most of the questions in LOI 1 and finished preparing for my LOI 1 presentation and thats why I think I was a good inquirer.
