During the class of English 2 the learning objectives are Improving my reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills,these are valuable to my future because later on when I'm going to college and starting to work I have to know how to do these things which will allow me to go further in life whether it’s at work or in school. The project that I am submitting as an artifact for English had the following learning objectives of understanding of the law, court procedures , and our criminal and civil legal systems.For this project we had to know the rules and way of the court to understand how we would argue and what we could do and not do. This was a challenge because I thought that some of the way the court worked where not fair.I had to grow to adjust what I was saying and how I worded it and in time I got better.
We had an objective of having facts to evaluate evidence and construct an argument. This was a major key element to our case because if I didn’t have the right facts of evidence it would mess up my whole argument and my statements would not be true nor reliable. Everything I said as well as my team had to be accurate or we could get the jury to be unsure of our statements. In the beginning we did have a hard time with this because some of our evidence was just a bit off and just in general we had a hard time finding any evidence at all.
I Achieved the learning objective of understanding of the law, court procedures , and our criminal and civil legal systems. By doing more research on the topic and actually doing a mock trial and knowing how it feels to be in a trial with a jury. I had some trouble but in the end I had a strong finish.For my second one, I Achieved the learning objective of having facts to evaluate evidence and construct an argument by having proof evidence and knowing what I’m saying. When you go up to talk to a jury you have to be confident and sure about what you are saying to them because if not they will think you are lying or are not certain about the case and therefore will take you as an unprofessional source. I was nervous in the beginning because we were being recorded so I stuttered a lot but towards the end it ended up being okay.
My project was about a young boy stave Harmon about 16 years of age, from Harlem facing charges of a felony murder. In the book it required me to go deeper into Mr.Harmons life and challenges me to think of different point of views in Steve’s life and how I would see things if I was actually there. Throughout this process listed above, I have realized I have grown to understand other people’s point of views and thoughts on a situation.
For my SLO’S, I have demonstrated thinking critically and creatively in this project by coming up with different ways to argue and knowing how to stage my facts in the right order for review of a jury and judge to defend a side.Also knowing how to get real facts and evidence. This is important because this allows me to know how to state something that is right and not false. I will be able to have a good reputation with knowing right and reliable facts and evidence. In conclusion, one thing I would like to improve upon for my next big project is to be more prepared and try my hardest to do everything I can to win my case. The thing I would you change if I had a chance to do this project over again would be able to go again with my statements rather than one time and that’s it. I feel like if I had gone back and forth it would have know more facts and would’ve argued better. All in all this was a great experience for me to learn a little bit more of writing in different ways.
