#1: What did you know about core competencies before this activity? What did you learn?

Before this activity, I only knew the definitions and categories of each core competencies but today I learned how to match them up with real stories and found a lot of examples that we see in real life. We learned how to identify when we see core competencies and also what qualities makeup competencies. Lastly, I found out how I can relate these core competencies more efficiently to my school projects.

#2: How can your knowledge of the core competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?

In school life, I now know how to better understand the qualities of each competency and how I can easily relate them towards my school project. During school and daily life, we can always think about how to relate the competencies to our life and use them or the examples learned today as models for how we can be socially responsible, Personally aware, show critical and creative thinking and express cultural identity through communication. Lastly, we can use the competencies to reflect on how we used these competencies in personal, social and school life.

L’importance des débats

À quoi ça sert  de pourvoir faire des textes argumentif et de defendre ses idées à l’oral ?

Je crois qu’un des raisons qu’on voit les débats souvent est dans les débats electoral pour les parties electoral. Comme on a appris les regles comme, soyez respectueux et n’interompe pas les gens qunad ils parlent, vous pouvez voir comment difficile ceci est cpmment les débats plus serieux. Comme nous avons pratiqué, les débats sont là pour nous enseignons à debattre pour ce qu’on croyait. Alors si on est jamais dan sla position ou nous sommes devalorisé ou nos idées ne sont pas considerer nous sommes preparer à defenre nos idées avec evidence et les idées juste.

The World’s Population by Eye Colour – Visual Data Representation

Visual Data Representation (Infographic) :

Using infographics is one of the easiest ways to make confusing data easy to read for anyone. Visual representation of data helps communicate graphs, tables, and data easy to read and appealing to the eye. I chose to research the world’s population by eye colour and instead of naming the colour and percent of the world corresponding with that colour I chose to create an eyeball to represent this data. At first look, this representation already gives you a hint on what you may be reading about (the eyeball) and at a closer look you can read more into each colours representation, by the population, and why different pigmentations are shown on iris. Whether its Rayleigh, low melanin or high melanin you can learn why your eyes are the colour they are, as well as how the world population average’s in eye colours.

Below  is an infographic representing the eye colours of the world’s population,
