This week we were introduced to a lot of new things. The introduction to what we will be doing at the end of the trimester with the Pecha Kucha style presentation was very helpful. With most of the presentations that we have done previously we have really seen an end product or we have seen one once we have started creating our end product, so I appreciated seeing the video of a previous student doing their presentation.
Another thing that we were introduced to that I found very helpful was doing a practice AP multiple choice test. I hate doing practice tests, because I often find myself falling asleep during them, but I liked that we started talking about what the test will be like. I have not looked super in depth into what the AP test will be like and we did not really talk about it much first trimester. After taking the practice test I learned that I needed to read the story before answering questions and I have to go back and refresh myself on literary devices used in poetry and other forms of literature.
Looking at what the future and what to expect was very helpful this week. Knowing what to expect on the AP test and where I stand right now with it. Having the base line will help to show the growth that I have made this year when it comes to taking the AP test. Also being introduced and have do a new style of presentation will also help me in the future because due to the job field that I will be going into I will be presenting pretty often.
