Day 102

Student voice provided by A Student

I started the class with a graph from Food Span Learning. I asked the students to list every time that they could think was relevant to understanding the graph.  It was tough. I flipped this later in the day. I asked the students to write all of the terms they know about agriculture and then had them look at the graph and circle the ones they thought were relevant. As I posted a few days ago, the students don’t believe in themselves. I’m working on that.

As the student said, “When you start the class off by asking questions “Question One!!!! What is an example of a region“ It isn’t the worlds most fun thing to do but I think doing things like that can help us start to see patterns in the things we are learning and help us remember what we are learning. I also really like how we get notes so we can go back and look at them for help while we need it.” AP Human Geography has a lot of content. They have to go back to it constantly because of the amount they have to memorize.  

“I wouldn’t say I really need help with it but I think something I really need to work on is setting a goal for what quizzes in the checklists I need to do each day. Like if there’s four quizzes I’d have to do the first two on Tuesday and the last two on Wednesday so I’m not constantly stressing out about finishing them on time. I can tell that I’m doing better with the checklists compared to last semester but I still need to improve a bit more.

She is reflecting on the process. It’s great to read that she is understanding what she needs to do. Hopefully, as she and her peers reflect, they will understand that they know so much and can access it when given a prompt.
