WSI ROL ESSAY
During the class of U.S History the learning objectives are (improving my reading, Writing, Speaking, And listening). These are valuable to my future because In this project we had to communicate with our partners and listen to each other's ideas. I felt like this was a good assignment for us to learn and achieve our learning objectives because we demonstrated a lot of talking, Writing, and listening.
WSI is a worldwide challenge that people enter to help our world globally. While doing WSI I had to go through a variety of steps to complete my project on time. We had a specific due date where we would submit all of are projects on into a portal. After doing this we had to enter the projects onto our weebly site. If my group wins, We could win up to $1800. If you go on up to top ten you can also win people's choice which would add up to $3600.
During this project I achieved the learning goals of identifying target markets and exploring cultural differences. I achieved targeting markets because me alone did a lot of researching other companies to see how they worked, what they offered, and how long they helped they kids.By doing this I wanted to see what they did different from me and how I could improve my organization.
For my second goal I achieved was 11.6 in the learning objectives. I achieved this by analyzing how kids were working instead of going to. Also how most of the kids I seen working, Lived below the poverty line.
At the beginning of the project I was excited to work on challenge 2 which was intisuit education sustainable careers challenge. I like this because I thought I could have a positive impact on this challenge.Not only that but I had recently seen a documentary about how young kids are being taken away the opportunity to go to school and get a good education because of where they live.This problem really bothered me because young kids are working for their families survival, while instead they should be enjoying their childhood and being able to just be a kid.
Another challenge that I was interested in was 11 which was improvement of making a stronger community. This had a deep place in my heart because my community here in watsonville is very strong I feel, Because everyone knows everyone and we all have grown up together and we all have been through similar things so we can relate to each other. With that saying to hear that some communities are not good or strong made me feel bad because that would be a bad thing because communities should always have common ground with each other.
Me and my partner Vince ended up choosing challenged 2. The first thing we did in this project was to sit down and brainstorm ideas.We then each wrote up ideas and plans for ourselves. After that we came together and agreed on terms and plans. Finally we wrote a video script showing our invention and made other papers of our plan that we submitted to the WSI portal.
During this process my partner and I worked okay together. I feel like I did do more of the work as far as coming up with ideas and plans on what we would be doing.But in all through doing this I have grown to be more of a leader because I had to take charge and give instructions to my partner.
In conclusion I was proud of this project because I know our idea was the best out of all them because we made something no one has done before. Not only that but I think ours would help many kids and make their lives better. One thing I could improve on was making the work equally because I did tend to do all the work. A goal that I have for my next project is to get a good working partner and to come up with more ideas and innovations.
