Question 1: What did you know about the Core Competencies before this activity? What did you learn?
I knew the names of all six Core Competencies but I didn’t really know what they meant. With this activity, I was able to not only understand and make my own definition of the competencies but also link them to real life examples(the competent Canadians).
Question 2: How can your knowledge of the Core Competencies help you in your school life? Personal life?
Core competencies can make me better understand the affects that I have on others and myself. But the thing I find more useful is the CC self-assessments because you can reflect on what you’ve done and find a way to improve.
Core competencies are useful but I think we already do these things naturally. Core Competencies is placing a name to things that we already do. Ex: Terry Fox had no name to put his actions into but he did it anyway.
