I learned how people stay in poverty and why. I learned that in a group, collaboration and communication is the best thing in a project. I can work well with communication and I am usually lost without it, even if I am aware of what I have to do. For the board we want a road theme and the road to (financial) success. We plan to do an interactive game for the people viewing to play and enjoy. To successfully complete the project we need a lot of communication and team work. We have poor collaboration that has improved but we still need more communication and time for us to work together.
Our driving question did change because of the information found with our new articles. We are doing a survey. We chose to do a survey so we can learn what people think and feel about racism at the age of 10-13 because this a group mostly affected by racism. The easy part has been collaborating and looking for articles we can base our research off of. The harder part was finding articles that associate more with our SLR and the driving question. Another part is annotating and looking for evidence that matches a generalization from our universal theme. We need to have 100% collaboration and participation in everything in order to complete the project. I feel as if the creative component might be easier for me than my other group members and we can each find something to pitch in so we know what to do. Our collaboration could be better. Recently, we have all not been able to attend mentorship sessions all together as a group and we also need to communicate what happens when one of us is out.
The articles we have read discuss racism and intolerance. In the exploration of the topic I learned that authority influences racism and racism can be translated into society and communities. I found that racism has always been around and it has always been thought of being influenced by heredity or environments. People even think racism is a mental disorder disease. We changed our driving question, universal theme, and we changed them because with our research and what we wanted to know, it fit very well. I hope to find more about the topic and how we can stop the racism in the world. I would also like to find more information about racism being a mental disease or it being heredity v. environment. Our collaboration is going okay but we should communicate more about the topic. Another thing to improve is overall equal work.
