provocations answers

May 17, 2010

1. I half agree and half disagree. Agree: Some girls can be more mature than some boys that make rong choices. Disagree: Girls can also make rong choices so you shouldn’t think girls will always  make the right choices because they might not.

2. sometimes boys don’t always need to know what just happens to boys bodys. What happens if they have a little daughter and something happens to the mum the little girl needs to know what will happen to their body when they grow up. At the same time it is not right for boys to know what happens to a girls body.

3. family is important because they are there to explain things to you and pass on news and ect. Also your family is important because if you are not in a good state than they are there to help you. Your family can also look after things for you. Also your family are the people I hope you can trust.  


Exhibition Reflection-Lily

May 10, 2010

What did you feel went really well for you during your Exhibition?

It felt that our movie went really well because everyone told us that it was very good. I also felt that our message got around well. I also think that our movie was very well at getting our message past.

What difficulties did you have and how did you deal with them?

We sometimes had fights in the group but the way we solved it was agree on something that we all like. Also in our movie it cut some bits of so we know next time to wait a bit after we filmed a scene we should wait like 2 or 3 minutes.

What have you learned about yourself?

I learned that I am a bit bossy and should also let people have their say even if I am really wanting to say something. I also learned that I sometimes waste time because I think that I have a lot of days to finnish my work in. I learned that I can take risk like making a video with me acting in it. There is also that I am not so scared of big projects like.

What ‘big ideas did you take away from the Exhibition?

The big idea is that you should stop cyber bullying because it affects people lives not just on person and it really affects the bully life when they are found bullying. If you bully someone you may cause them illness, death, hurt and sorrow.

How will you continue to move forward with your learning – what will you do to live with the future in mind?

I will make sure that I don’t hurt anyones feelings on chat or in person so they don’t feel safe around me. I will also make sure that people don’t always think that people are trying to be mean to them because they might be joking.


What have you learned about group work?

I have learned that a group means teamwork an teamwork means you share the work around. Also choose a group that you can work with not one that you can’t work with. When in a group you shouldn’t say I did all the work because you all work as a team.

Tanya: I can attitude

STAR 1: She really knew what she was doing and when she was presenting she wasn’t all shy and shaky she was very confident. she also had a good way of showing her work and you could see she put a lot of time into it and didn’t race through everything.

STAR 2: Tanya thought of a lot of ways to get her message through and I liked the way making a group was one of them. Tanya also had a very outstanding booth she had lots of  pictures of ice-cream which I think was the thing that grabbed my attention.

WISH: I wish that Tanya next time should go somewhere like the old library because I think that more people would have come. overall it was very good.



STAR1: I liked the way she told us how it felt to be in Burma running away from the army. She was very confident when she was speaking. She was also loud and sometimes looked up from her paper. It was also good how she based her work on a certain person and how she told the story of a little girl.

STAR 2: I like the way Aylie had a background in the back of the people running away and the army ect. When she was talking if she started from the start when she read aloud the Powerpoint was kinda showing the story she was saying eg when she said they planted bombs in the ground a picture of the bomb would show up.

WHISH: I think that should stand still and not move up and down. She should also look at the audience more than look at her paper. She should also show the Powerpoint with music at the end because it sounds very good. She did a very good job.

    The most important thing you would like people who visit your Exhibition presentation, to come away understanding.

    The most important thing is that people need to put them selves someone else shoes that is getting bullied and think about what that person feels like when they are getting bullied. People also need to know that sometimes people bully but they don’t mean to harm you they are just joking and playing around.
