Interview Questions

This week is the first week we have started researching into our topic, and there is so much happening! One thing which I had to do was to think of the interview questions. It was a bit tricky, but once I did a few, it became easier.

Something I really think which will help when you are making your interview questions to think of your 3 essential questions. This helps to write it on top so when you write your questions, you can think of your main focus and not go off topic. We also had to consider some follow up questions, so we can dig a little bit deeper and know more. Another thing which you should do when writing interview questions is to think of a variety of questions so you can get a variety of answers and you can get more information.

I recommend these tips for you when writing your interview questions.

Researching... As a team

                             Researching... As a team

This week we are focusing on our research and gathering our notes and questions for interviews.In class, my group was focusing on our agenda when we meet our mentor and what we are going to talk about .
Our teacher introduced us into this star,the star is when we have complete something we write what we did and put it on our wall which then others can see . 
In our group, each week in the pod we have to write on the boards that have skills on we have to write something we did well in two of the skills . 
We might be going to WWF organisation (in Tanglin Singapore ) to talk about what they do with palm oil and some questions we have for them . 
We are also might be going to talk to our Sodexo team about what products they use and maybe what they can change to make it better and sustainable for the people . 
I think today the skill we used were collaboration because we really wanted to get these things done so we had to work as a group to achieve this. 
I think next time we could do much more research but otherwise, we did well. 
Now we have to get the email from our mentor telling us about when she is available. 
We used Lots of Collaboration,Self-managing our time to get our part done,Teamwork to compromise with each another. and being responsible when sending things to other people.
Today we had our first mentor meeting.We learnt a lot from them and what we can do better,They told us we should try to rephrase your questions so that we are not saying the same thing.I enjoyed working with our mentors and when we go back next Thursday with them we will share our new questions and talk to them about our experience when we go to WWF on Tuesday.We will get a better understanding to perspectives after that.

WWF (World Wildlife Fund) email.

Today I was working on my email to WWF (World Wildlife Fund) In that email, I added:

  • Introduction
  • Our focus
  • Essential questions
  • Interview request
  • Time we are available
  • What we might ask them
These were some things that I added to the email. I was really worried I made an error because me and my group wanted it to sound like we were professional. While writing the email I tried to be polite and respectful. Once I approved it with Ms. La Caze I sent the email and started hoping they would reply quickly because I was so excited.  After about two hours I checked my email and realized that they had replied and they said my group can visit them on the day we were available. I felt so happy.

Some advice I would give you is that if you are going to request an interview you should triple check it and check it with a teacher.

Grade 6 Advice for Exibition

Today, the Grade 6’s came to our class to talk about their Exhibition experience. They gave some tips and advice to help us. Something a lot the G6’s said was that you had to be responsible to get your deadlines done, otherwise you can be behind from everyone else. To be able to do this, you have to be organized and a self-manager. I agree with this because if you are not responsible, your end product won’t be as good. Another important key thing is that you have to be a good communicator. If you don’t communicate clearly your ideas to your group, the other people won’t know what your idea or perspective is. In Exhibition, you have to use all the skills and qualities.

Learning about SAIS Exhibition

Today we went to look and listen to the kids in SAIS to see how they had done their exhibition so we can get a better understanding.One thing I really liked is how they had made a brochure for their topic to get their learners thinking and understand further into the topic.I they also used lots of props to make their presentation more  interesting and fun too.I think now for my exhibition topic we might be able to make brochures for our topic and make some props to make the audience more interested.I found that they were very nice and they spoke loud so we can hear what they are saying.

Advice From Former Exhibition Groups

Today some grade 6’s came to us and started to give us a little bit of advice for Exhibition. The most common thing they told us is that you have to be responsible. I totally agree because you have to stay on task and get everything done by the deadline. It was nice to hear from these former Exhibition groups and take some advice. I learned that it was going to be hard and you are going to need to do a lot of skills and qualities. Like being responsible, critical thinker, collaboration and more. Also being organised is a really big one because when you have a mission to accomplish then you really have to get it done before the deadline. But the number one thing is teamwork. You have to work as a team and support each other.
