Science 10 Online Self Assesment

My transition from in-school learning to online learning has been good, there have been a few challenges at the beginning, truth be told but once we started doing it almost everyday and each teacher trying to help and navigate through this new learning process has been semi-enjoyable. I think the most beneficial parts of this experience have been having all day to work on an assignment instead of it being only for an hour and twenty minutes. This gives the opportunity to continue on the one assignment and you maintain your idea and train of thought longer. There isn’t much about online learning that i would want to change because it is very straight forward and simple to understand.

SMART Goals Reflection

1. What was your goal?

My goal was to attempt to stop swearing so much. In recent weeks it has come to my attention that I have a problem, so this was my attempt to fix that.

2. Did you achieve it? How or how not?

Sadly I was not successful with my goal, although I am not that heartbroken over it. Over these past weeks I’d like to think that I have improved this so called “problem” but if anything I think it escalated. The first couple of days i was doing pretty well, but then I got mad at my sister for existing and my attempt at this new and improved me was no more.

3. What was the most challenging part of achieving your goal?

I would say that the most challenging part of this experience was my sister, she makes it very hard to be polite. This goal was challenging because I had to start thinking about what I was going to say before I said it, when I’m usually just waiting to hear what I say.

4. What would you do differently next time?

I probably wasn’t as committed to the cause as I should have been, not gonna lie. Next time if I ever try to attempt this goal again I think I would try to censor myself a lot more and actually think before I speak.

5. Will you continue with this type of goal? If you do, explain what you will do. If not, explain why you are satisfied with where you are at.

I think for right now I bookmark this experiment for now, because this is only a problem around my friend and my sister, I haven’t been called out on it yet so hopefully we will keep it that way.
