Hello there reader!
As from the title of this post I will be typing about my NGPS Race reflection.
So, the first thing the whole class did was to list down the habits of the mind that we used and name us a reason. In the end we used all the habits of the mind. My group at first in my head had used no habits of the mind. That was what I thought… but I was proven wrong.
The teachers asked us to list the 8 habits of the mind that we used in the entire race. In my head I was thinking about what we were going to do. A few of my team members then thought of ideas and then we were off. BANG! Going as fast as we could. In the end we listed these 8 habits of the mind: Persisting as number 1 most important, organisation as number 2, working interdependently as number 3, thinking flexibly as number 4, Listening with empathy and understanding as number 5, getting closer, Questioning and problem posing as number 6, 2 more to go, Applying past knowledge as number 7, and remaining open to continuous learning as the 8th and last one.
We then headed to the white board, one person per group (which was me for my group) and recorded down all your top 8.
We were then sent back and told to give each habit of ours a weighting. The 8 weightings had to add up to a hundred. Our weightings were for the first 30%, second 25%, third 15%, fourth 10%, fifth 9%, sixth 8%, seventh 2%, and last but not least (actually is the least) Eighth 1%.
We then created a delicious pie chart from the raw data. Look for yourself, satisfying isn’t it? Also we have the sorted data here too.
Below here is extremely raw data.
Now, what did I learn in relation to this task working in a team? I learnt that, you all have to work on the same thing to get it done much easier other than working on all different things at once. That’s what I learnt.
