周五(七月23号至七月29号)周记

这个星期我很累。星期一和星期五从四点到九点我在光启开会。星期二的课间休息时,我有跟学校的管理员开会为了今年的 (aquathlon)。他们对那个活动支持。我很高兴因为这是第一次我听到这个建议。但是,这一天,我去了医务室为了我不舒服。这个星期也有很多作业。我各种各样的作业,从背到实验都有。这个星期,我只有去游一次。我觉的自己很胖了。希望这个星期,我回去游泳。我觉得有用很重要。这个可以帮我减肥,帮我比较高兴。下个星期,我们要考菲律宾大学的入学考试。我希望我会进入这个大学。我很喜欢这个大学。我希望这个星期会比较好。希望我还会变更好的学生!

周四(七月16号至七月22号)周记

这个星期很累人。我每天很早去睡觉,也有两天去游泳。我觉得我上个星期的计划成功了。这个星期,我每天开了会,跟我的论文导师开第二会。我的体育心理学论文很难写因为我没有后景。虽然这个论文很难学,但是我要花很多时间才能把这篇论文写得好。

这个星期,IB学生的生活已经开始了。作业、考试等越来越多,空间越来越少。我希望在这年,我能把我的时间弄好。下个星期合会很忙。在DWTL,他们叫了我帮他们。这个意识是,在下个星期,会有两个开会。在我的aquathlon,我要在星期二的课间休息时给学校管理员介绍今年的计划。星期六,我要参加菲律宾第一模型代表大会。在这个机会,我好代表光启学校。

下个星期有很多事。我希望我还有冬季坐着几件事。

周三(七月9号至七月15号)周记

这个星期我做了很多事。我每天五点就起床了,差不多六点到学校。差二十分起点我就要去gate 4帮小朋友带他们的书包。我觉得这个机会让我们帮小孩子很重要。我在这个机会知道更多服务活动。我每天也很晚睡觉,因为我们有很多作业。每天有差不多四至五个作业。我觉得这是IB的开始了。 我这个星期也没去运动。我这个星期也有组织了一个团队建设活动。我很高兴因为我们地成员都很高兴。我觉得这个团队建设活动活动很成功。

这个星期,我想到几个方法让我更做多的事。第一,我要睡早点儿。我不会一直去上网的社会网站。这是因为这些很让费时间。第二,我会早点儿做我的作业,不填满。这样,如果有别的事,我能做得好、更漂亮,会提高我的分数。第三,我要抽出时间锻炼身体。这样,我的身体会健康,也会让我更高兴!

希望这些方法能做得很好!

Art as an Area of Knowledge: Essay

 Prompt: What’s a better indicator of quality in art–the approval of experts or popularity among mass audiences? 

Art is part of the uncertain part of the spectra of area of knowledges. This would entail that opinion of one would be most probable. This then brings out the discussion when we can consider one as a good art or as a bad art. While having a discussion in class, some of the premises of some people were valid and some things that I thought were confirmed. Based on my interpretation, I would most probably say that good art is decided by credible people, not necessarily the authority and the approval of the majority is required. 

The general emotion of the public when taken into consideration would have advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage is that the people who look at it would give the opinion that they want to convey especially about the topic. This would allow the person to fully give and exercise their like for the art. On the other hand, the disadvantage of emotion is that we are not sure if all the people who look at the art is the same. This would trigger different arguments whether or not the art is good. The different backgrounds and culture of people would trigger their intuition and would say how they think. 

The other way of knowing used in the argument is reason. Like emotion, there are different advantages and disadvantages with using this way of knowing. The main advantage is that the art being presented is logically criticized and well understood through inductive and deductive reasoning. On the other hand, the main disadvantage of using this way of knowing is if we tend to fall to fallacies and use our bias and pride, then we will make the wrong judgement with this way of knowing. 

Laying down the different advantages and disadvantages of both ways of knowing, we then can see the inclination for emotion more. This is because we use our emotion to judge and see how we feel towards the specific art. The main logic of this is that we would not like ugly things and we tend to destroy them. If we see something as beautiful even though others think its not, then we would take care of it. This thus leads us to one of the knowledge claim that beauty if art is decided by the beholder. This is primarily true due to the description of emotion as a way of knowing. 

In wrapping up this discussion, I firmly believe that the claim of protecting the beautiful is true and this would allow us to take care of thing things that we have. We would tend to care for it and other people see it also as beautiful due to our race and culture. Thus, analyzing the discussion above, the decision of a good art is more for the decision of the majority rather than the authority. 

周一(六月25号至七月一号)日记

今年我在光启学校修国际文凭课程的第二年了;在菲律宾课程今年也可以叫修十二年级。今年,我们要考菲律宾的大学高考(考三次或以上),汉语水平考试,美国高考,国际文凭课程外部考试什么的。今年,我也参加很多课外活动例如:青年基督徒的生活社区、游泳代表队、铁人二项(aquathlon)等。在这方面,我是代表人或组织者。我对这些活动特别感兴趣。在我班里,我是掌柜。我今年可以是说特别很忙。真的,我很忙,不过我也会抽出时间学习,做运动,跟朋友周旋,做我要什么,跟家人出去逛商场等等。

那今年,我也想到我应该该我一些去年做错的事情。首先,我看清我花在电脑的互联网及社交网站(唧唧喳喳、雅虎、脸书等)的时间很多。第二,我在最后一天做我的作业。第三,我没花很多时间做运动。第四,我会填满我百分之八十的作业。

想到以上的错,我今年想a改善我的学习方式。在下个句子,我会写我想做什么改变。首先,我想花多一点时间做运动,这样,我的身体会健康。第二,我想早点儿多我的作业,这样,我坐也不会变很多,可以做别的事情。第三,我会减少上网的时间,这样,我可以画我的时间去学习,不一致做每意的事。

以上,我写了我今年要做什么。我也写了我要做什么以便会变我的生活容易。我希望我的计划会成功!加油!

Post Grade 11 Reflections: IB BM

How do I feel about the Business and Management course from last year?

  • I felt it was basically full of new information for me to learn
  • Kinda hard since I need to learn something new
  • Very strict in terms of key terms and questions

What are my strengths as a BM student? What do I need to improve; how do I intend to improve?

  • Strength – Maybe note taking and listening in class
  • Strength – Asking questions
  • Improve – Learning to answer the question
  • Improve – Put a more positive attitude towards the subject

Given my exposure to Business and Management, what are some current business issues/developments that interest me? Why?

  • SMC buying PAL – Something very big here in the Philippines
  • Failing of Export Bank – Why or how does a bank fail?

The Value and Definition of Art: TOK

I count all of the images given in class art. These images whether or not it is a picture or painting, it entails seeing people think. It expresses the emotion and feeling that the person doing it wants to give. Understanding art may be very difficult since it doesn’t have criteria in where we can base it on. Love for doing something and knowing how express feelings is the best way to describe art for me. Art is the love for something abstract. It is the way in where we can let other people see how we do and how we feel. It also shows how we live: our culture, environment and likes.

The IB Profile: Redefining

The IB Learner Profile Should:

Add:

-Innovative – To let candidates learn more and think better: understanding the need for change in the things that we do so that we can continuously improve our way and style of living.

-Well Rounded – To let candidates learn the need to know the different things as these things will make one a better person. This will make one more responsive to changes in this fast and modern world.

Remove:

-Thinkers – Thinking without the objective to change would be a waste of time and this would be under the characteristic of innovative.

-Knowledgable – Knowledge without applying it would be useless. This would be under the trait of well rounded and innovative.
