The End of the Year...

I think this blog post can be last post. Today I'm going to write about my goal this year and next year.

 I got little many goals. My goals were meeting homework in deadline, being friendly to friends and teachers, listen carefully to teachers while having lesson and exercising. I have met some of my goals. Those are being friendly to friends and teacher, listen carefully to teacher while having lesson and exercising. I was being kind to friends and teachers. I tried hard. And while having lesson I really focus on what teachers saying. Exercising was the easiest goal that I have met. Except soccer I like all sports to play. The soccer is my worst sport, because if I miss the ball everyone blame me and I don't know how to play it well.

 For being friendly to friends and teachers, they helped me a lot to be friendly. Not just me they were very kind and care of me a lot, thus I can be more friendly with them. Listen carefully to teachers while having lesson, I think I didn't get anyone help. I successfully met that goal be myself. And lastly exercising. Of course PE teacher helped me but grade 7 friends were helped me more. They helped me to exercising, they care of me and playing together. But there is one goal I didn't meet. It was really hard. It's meeting homework in deadline. I think the reason that I can't meet this goal is because I was lazy. My lazy was stepped me from meeting this goal. I think I have to make a new goal for next year which is not being lazy.

 And now I'm going to write about my next year goals which is for school and my personal life. For my school goal is as well as I said in up there Not to being lazy, meeting homework in deadline, friendly to friends and teachers and last one is exercise to grow up. Those are my next year goal. I wish I will met all of them.

Now I will tell about me this year. As a student I learned about myself very lazy. I think not all but a little homework didn't met the deadline, and when I was at home I felt lazy to doing my homework. In a person I felt I have to grow up fitness. I felt they were very shortage. After run one lap in gym I felt very tired but I'm doing my best. So I learned I have to improve my fitness.

In this year I felt my English has been improved a lot. I felt that because before this year, I was hard to speaking in english and I didn't care about grammar that I use while writing or speaking. But after I join ESl and concentrate in English class, I learned that I have to use right grammar and vocabularies. And I have learned lots of new words like some new transition words. Thanks for reading my final post.

Final Task: Analysis!

 The topic that I chose is 'Golf.' My essential question is 'Who wear the green jackets and how can I improve my golf by learning about them?'. There are some reason that I chose this topic and essential question. The reason for topic, I chose the topic to Golf because I'm interested in the sport. To sum the reason for essential question is I want to know who wear the green jackets because it's hard to wear. It must win to wear green jacket. And I want to learn about them throughout this unit.

 Untill today I did 3 Bloom's Taxonomy. It's Knowledge, Comprehension and Application. In knowledge part I got three to do task they were 'List the people who have been in the Green Jacket, Describe some tips for playing golf (Put pics with this) and Describe which skills in golf you will try to focus on learning and explain why (as well as which ones you won’t and why not'. In this part I have to research hard. After Knowledge I start Comprehension. Also I got to do task. They were 'Predict what golf skills I will be able to learn and why?, Compare two golfer who wear green jacket about their time line while. and Describe what the basic tips  to play the golf.' In this part I also have to research and think my opinion. Lastly in application, I got big and hard to do task for it. They were ' A video explaining HOW to play golf and focusing on the skills that you learned (this video will INCLUDE shots of you practicing, but your entire video should not just be you practicing golf), as well as explaining that was difficult and easy for you when learning these skills and why. and A slide show to summarize what you want to teach people. This should include pictures of yourself performing the skills and written explanations.' I think this part was the hardest part in Bloom's Taxonomy. I have to play the golf. In this part I took a video and picture to finish.

Again my essential question is 'Who wears the freen jacket and how can I improve my golf by learning about them?'. Now I'm going to answers them. I can't tell everyone golfer who wear green jacket. I just know some. They are: Tiger Woods, Mike Weir, Phil Mickelson, Zach Johnson, Trevor Immelman, Angel Cebrera and Charl Schwartzel. To sum I can improve my golf skill by learning about them, who I know. I saw there movement and skills.

UOI Interview With Mrs. Raisdana

 Firstly, I'm going to tell the three questions that I chose for the interview with Mrs. Raisdana. The first question is "If you could choose your topic again, would you choose the same one, or a different one? Explain why." Second question is "If you could re-do any part of your project so far, what would you change and why?" and Last question is "What have to you learned about yourself as a learner, and about the WAY that you learn through this unit?". For the reason I choose these questions are; First question because I want to everyone that we have to choose the topic seriously that you can do really well. The reason for second question is I want one more chance to do for my mark. So I want tell everyone at once we have to do properly and well. Last question, because I want tell everyone to know how well I can focus if I know the way that I learn through this unit.

After I got the questions I'll prepare my answers step by step. Firstly after I chose the questions, I can find the meaning for that questions. Thou I can answer the questions well while practicing and interviewing. Secondly, I will answers the question in other document and practice for the question. After that I will edit more to sum memorize it until it can be seen that real. After step by step, I will predict how I think I will do when having a interview and the reason for that. First, before I have a interview I will check that uniform is in properly dressed or not than I will check again for the notes that I practice for the answers. The reason is I want to show the people I'm student who want to know the way I can study well, and not to make a mistake when giving my interview.

 My Interview

My reflection

I prepare a lot for my interview. I prepare for the answers. As last time I said I practice in front of my friends and family. They give me some comment that I have to fix, thus I changed some. And before having interview I cleaned my clothes and hair properly. During the interview I felt very nervous, I felt almost die, but I think I did quiet good. I felt very differently from other day. I don't know why but it was really scary and nervous. I have done some differently then usual interview. I didn't chang the clothes. I think I have changed clothes when I have other interview, but in this time I didn't because I want to tell people I'm one of student who have this expriment. Thank You!!!

The Next Level: Comprehension

Compare two golfers who wear green jacket about their best skills.

I will compare Tiger Woods and Nick Faldo’s experience. First, Nick Faldo won 6 times. He won 3 times from Masters Tournament, other 3 times are from The Open Championship. But Tiger Woods won 14 times in compotation. He won 4 times from Masters Tournament, 3 times from U.S Open, other 3 times from The Open Championship and lastly 4 times are from PGA Championship.
Before they were being a golfer they join some tour. Nick joined PGA Tour, European Tour and Champions Tour. And Tiger joined PGA Tour, European Tour, Japan Golf Tour, Asian Tour, and PGA Tour of Australasia. Nick won 9 times in PGA Tour, 30 times in European Tour and 7 times in other tours. But Tiger won 71 times in PGA Tour, 38 times in European Tour, 2 times in Japan Golf Tour, 1 time in Asian Tour, 1 time in PGA Tour of Australasia and 15 times in other tour. I think still Tiger Woods is better then Nick Faldo.

Predict what golf skills I will be able to learn and why?

I think I will be able to learn about backspin and driving, because I haven’t learned it. Backspin is look for me like cool, so I would like to learn about it. And Driving is most important thing to golf player, because it help making my mind happy and good for play next turn.

Describe what the basic tips to play the golf.
Golf Swing Tip #1: The Grip
The grip is the foundation of your golf swing and developing the right grip is critical to your success in hitting the ball farther and straighter. There are many different grips out there that you can use. Here are few common grip types:

- The Interlocking Grip – With this grip the index finger of the left hand and the little finger of the right hand combine and interlock. Those that have thick hands, or shorter hands commonly use it. This grip is usually the best option for most people and will allow you to create proper leverage for maximum power.

- The Overlapping Grip – This grip involves having the little finger of the right hand sit on top of the index finger of the left hand. Most male golfers use this grip because it does require strong wrists and forearms.

- The Baseball Grip – With this grip the index finger of the left hand and the little finger of the right hand do not overlap but do make contact with each other. This is usually the default grip for most beginners or golfers with weaker arm and wrist strength. You probably do not want to keep using this grip as the interlocking or overlapping will work better in most cases.

Golf Swing Tip #2: The Stance
The ideal stance is to have your weight equally balanced. It is important to stay relaxed over the golf ball as any tension will affect the quality of your golf swing so make sure to follow this important golf tip. You want to bend at the hips when addressing the golf balls and have a slight flex in the knees also. In addition keeping the spine erect and not rounded is important.
Let your arms hang naturally once you bend your hips, avoid extending your arms straight as there should be an angle between the arms and the shaft.

Golf Swing Tip #3: The Backswing
Keep the left arm straight (right handed players) during the backswing and go back as far as you can. Your tempo is dictated really by your personality, some people are naturally slow movers so will have a slower tempo while others tend to move faster so do what is most comfortable for you.

Golf Swing Tip #4: The Downswing
One of the key elements in the downswing is to keep your head in the same position. Begin your downswing with the hips and keep your head behind the ball until your follow through. Do not use your right hand to try to generate more power. The power in your golf swing will come from the leverage in the angle between the club and your wrists. Try to hold the angle between the clubs and the wrists as much as possible in order to generate maximum power.
Do not rush the downswing as this will usually result in poor shots and inconsistency. You want to have a gradually increasing speed on the downswing and make sure that you have good balance and swing well within yourself. Do not try to muscle the club or swing hard, just make a smooth and controlled movement and you will find that this will help you to hit the ball solidly on a regular basis.

Golf Swing Tip #5: The Follow Through
After impact you want the club to fully release while keeping your head behind the ball. Your head should naturally come up with your right shoulder, so your chin should be over your right shoulder and your head facing the target to complete the follow through.
Remember to have some patience when learning the golf swing, go to the range and practice your swing without hitting any golf balls to start and then as you feel more comfortable with your swing you can start hitting a few balls.
Use these golf swing tips to practice your swing on the range for a few days, maybe even a couple of weeks until you are comfortable before you go out to the golf course. Remember to relax and focus on your targets when you are on the course and try to avoid thinking about swing mechanics on the golf course, rather focus on trusting and believing in your game.
