Jaime Oliver Ted Talk Reflection

Jaime Oliver’s main message in this talk is that children don’t get well educated about food. I think that children should get well educated about food because it is a really important need in life. Food is important because to be healthy you have to eat and to eat you need food. The take-away I got from this talk was that A lot of country’s have massive obesity problems or bad health because they are not taught what is right to eat and what is wrong. Although this talk speaks to Americans this affects me as a person who lives in Turkey because a lot of people in Turkey have obesity problems because they don’t eat healthy and don’t exercise enough. When I look at people on the streets that have obesity problems I think about how they came to this situation and how they came to a position like this.

 

I really found this graph interesting to look at.

The Economics of Happiness Reflection

I agree that people want bigger better and more because most people want the latest technology and they want to have what other people have. For example: People have lots of clothes that they use but they want more and more to keep up with the trend. Globalization

The connections I can make are that I also want bigger better and more. Example: I have lots of t-shirts but when I go into a store if I see something I like then I buy it but I don’t really need it.

I found Local Business interesting because I never really thought about local business before or studied it. If in any of my classes we study and learn deeper about local business I would love to learn about it because from the documentary it took my interest.

 

Comments: The money that you would spend for something you don’t need can go to charities or refugees.



Ece said she finished her pinboard earlier and she helped other people. I found Ece very committed to exhibition project. As she did daily work on time she could have a opportunity to help other people. I’m proud of Ece’s concentration.


Week 4-Parent Blog

So this week was action week and she presented to the administrators and asked their opinions. Thats good to see a broader view and also convince herself that she is on the right track. Ece said she got some good comments as well as some ideas.. So she is fresh and on the way….

Next week she told me she was going to do her pin board and I think that will be successful….gooooooo…:)


Week 3-Parent Blog

This week Ece was quite ambitious and curious and little excited to decide how to express the subject. Plan out and set was on her mind but starting the way needed some planing and thinking. She was thinking and discussing with me about her ideas. Next week she has to take some action and write down the things we discussed and on her mind. It is exciting for me to see her ideas and discussions….love it :)


Week 4-Teacher Blog

Ece has been very nervous but appeared well prepared and happy. She came back from her action enthused and full of energy. Her topic is one close to the hearts of the administration and my goal for her would be to follow through and see if she has impacted them to make changes in our curriculum. Follow through is key.


Week 4-Mentor Blog

On Thurs April 30th Ece presented her case to increase visual arts time time for primary students to the Primary Leadership Team (Ms. Steinmann, Ms. Kingsbury, and Mr. Kirkpatrick) and the Director of Student Learning (Dr. D’Arcy). Ece’s 20 minute presentation was succinct, nicely crafted, logically organised, and concluded with a reasonable recommendation for change. As a next step, Ece will need to reflect on the suggestions made by her audience. Specifically, will the use of the morning reading times for art making be sufficient? Was this want Ece really intended or was an accumulation of these reading periods into a block of time for art making? It fells to me that if Ece pursued this agenda she might be successful in making change.
