MODULE 3 BLOG: Communicating and Collaborating Blog Post

I learned many things in this module but the most useful thing I learned was how to write an effective discussion reply because it applies to this class and my french class.

In my french class we peer edit papers so I tried to implement what I learned in this module by being more thoughtful in my feedback to the papers. On page 54 it talks about if all you have to say is “I agree” then it probably means you didn’t listen well enough. So in my french class instead of just saying good sentence structure or good use of vocabulary I try and give more specific feed back like good use of particular vocabulary tenses.

An idea from this module I can put into practice in the future is that I can implement more preparation for group projects. I have a big group project that is worth 30% of my grade in my peace studies class coming up. We have already introduced ourselves to each other and shared contact information but we still need to identify group roles, break the project into smaller steps with deadlines, and distribute tasks.

A piece of advice I would give other students is that if you don’t use google docs for projects you should because it is a good way for group members to access the project at the same time. It makes it so much easier to share files and work on things together. It is particularly useful for peer editing papers and for group papers.

Artifacts

Artifact: Trip to Toronto

Experience:

This artifact represents my trip to Toronto with my scholars group over fall break 2016. We went to Toronto for four days and explored the city while also doing some educational tours to the Casa Lama Castle, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Aga Khan Museum. In addition to these formal tours we also were given the opportunity to explore Yorkville, Kensington Market, and the CN Tower on our own.

This trip allowed me to learn more about the city of Toronto. By then end of the trip I had a pretty good idea of how to navigate the city without the need to use google maps on my iPhone. This was something that surprised me because I have never had to navigate a new place without the help of technology. This experience allowed me to realize my navigational abilities as well as how to ask for help from locals. The planned activity that allowed me to learn the most was when we visited the Aga Khan Museum. The Aga Khan Musuem is a museum of Islamic art, Persian Art, and Muslim culture. I was able to learn a lot about architecture of the musuem as well as about the Muslim faith. Previous to this experience I have had limited opportunity to learn about the Muslim faith so this was a new and eye-opening experience for me,

I will use what I learned from this experience, especially navigating, on my next adventure to a new or foreign place. I will use my experience of learning about the Muslim faith to learn more about other faiths and cultures. Lastly, I will try and be more open-minded in trying new things and going to new places without the comfort of my parents or technology.

About Me

img_5561Hi, I’m Suneet Kaur Singh! I’m from Shawnee, Kansas and currently majoring in International Science and Diplomacy and minoring in Western Europe. I’m planning on eventually entering law school and becoming either an art lawyer, human rights lawyer, immigration lawyer, or international business lawyer. A lot of my interests and career interests stem from my internships. These internships include being a teen advisor at the Nelson- Atkins Museum of Art, participating in the Johnson County Youth Court and Truancy Panel, and interning at the non-profit Call KC. I was involved in a lot of extracurriculars in high school, such as NHS, NAHS, NFHS, girl’s golf, REBEL, Rotary Club, Speech and Debate, and Thespian Troupe. I’m a big fan of art, history, and traveling. I hope to grow as a person and meet people of all backgrounds during my time at Ohio State University.
