- What did you know about the Core Competencies before this activity?
In Grade 8 I learned a lot of things about Core Competencies. I knew going in to this activity that Core Competencies help me in every aspect of my life like school, out of school, out of school activities, and future jobs. I also knew about the groups core competencies are organized into Communication, Creative Thinking, Critical Thinking, Personal And Cultural Identity, Social Responsibility, and Personal Awareness and Responsibility.
2. How can your knowledge of the Core Competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?
My knowledge of the Core Competencies can help me in my school life by helping me talk to classmates effectively and well using communication. It also helps me with creating original ideas with my creative thinking, for example if I need an original idea for a project my creative thinking will help me with that. Critical thinking also helps me when I run into problems in school because I can use my critical thinking to find the best possible decision for me to make. Using personal and cultural identity, I will be able to know how to act in different circumstances. Using Social Responsibility I know how to act in different parts of life like at home, school, and at out of school activities. Personal awareness and responsibility also helps me with how I act in different places like knowing what is good behavior like no yelling inside and playing sports with my friends, being kind with my teammates. Core competencies help me throughout my whole life and these are just some examples of when they can help me.
