If I could make more changes to my poster I wouldn't used the cool design scissors because they have no real purpose and they don't look that great. I also would've written the more on settling disagreements bigger.
I am most proud of the four pictures on the center of the board with a foam flower connecting them. I am most proud of that because we worked very hard on it and it pops on the center of the board.
I started off starting my speech by saying "My poster is about how we settle disagreements in our classroom," and towards the end I started my speech by saying "Hello welcome to leadership day my name is Carmen. Today I will tell you about how we settle disagreements in our classroom." Also I would answer questions as quickly as possible at the end I went more in depth. I also answered the questions people asked in my speech.
It improved because I became more comfortable and I got more experience about what kind of things people want to know. I also feel I got more confident talking to people as more people came. I think that also made the person who was listening to my speech more comfortable, not having to listen to a shy fidgety kid.
I hope they learned how important it is to solve our own problems and not always ask the teacher to solve it for us. I also hope they learned that solving daily problems can be as simple as rock paper scissors.
I included things about showing student leadership and how we solve our own problems without asking the teacher. In my speech I also included how simple rock paper scissors is and how efficient it is in solving problems.
Answering people's questions was very easy because I thought I always knew the answers I thought some would catch me off guard but they didn't. I also thought that I wouldn't be able to tell if they were interested so I kept looking at their faces and luckily I could tell.
One thing what was hard for me was explaining how my topic shows student leadership. It was hard because I knew what I was talking about but I couldn't really put it into words without using the word like all the time.
People always said when they first came up to me, "Oooo yes this is definitely an important subject," or "Yeah settling disagreements can definitely be difficult and tough even in the real world," or something like that. At the end some people said that it looked like I looked very hard on my presentation. They also said that learning to solve our own problems is very helpful for the real world.
