Reflection on presentations
This week we presented our projects
Everyone did an amazing job generating a project based on New York and the five senses. I am thankful that we were allowed to make our own project. I liked this because it allowed creativity and individuality from each student. I wish we could have had showed our presentations to more people because they all were worth showing off.
My project was to create a trailer of my experience of when I was in New York and to do a live interview. I was able to incorporate the five senses in my responses from the questions I was asked. In addition, I also added a question that included two articles that helped me experience New York the way I did. Overall, I had a hard time making a movie trailer because I could decide which one to show as my final presentation. I had created around 6 other movie trailers but none of them really described my experience. So generating a movie trailer that depicted my experience was tough. However, I was able to be pleased with one of the trailers I created, and decided to choose it for my project. This project helped me learn how my being a mindful traveler (using my 5 senses), I would be more present throughout the trip. And by being present I would receive a rich and meaningful experience. However, this class also helped me learn that if you give students the free will to choose their own project, they would end up projecting creative and individual projects. Everyone of my peers produced an excellent project; each which were creative and significant. For instance, Evie’s project was beautifully done. She was able to put purpose to each part within her project. Another example, was Elizabeth’s book which was very creative and funny. Or the play produced by one of my peers. Hence, this class has thought me that allowing students to produce their own projects, they will end up with individuality.
