Did you meet your goals for the project? How can/could you tell? How would you improve on future learning opportunities like this?
I met my goals in most aspects on this project. I am extremely pleased with my learning center and mostly pleased with my speech. However, I am not pleased with the fact that I didn’t get any interview responses. Next time I will try to use my time more wisely because I procrastinated a lot on this project and some parts of it were left to the last minute.
What will you remember about Night of the Notables?
One of the most memorable things about Night of the Notables was the power and passion in the Grade 10 speeches. They inspired me to use my time more wisely and to put more effort into my work for eminent next year. It was also great to see how the guests were interested in everyone’s projects. Most people came because they really wanted to learn something about our chosen eminent people, not just because they were ‘supposed to’ come.
Who would you like to thank, or recognize, for their contributions to Night of the Notables?
First of all, I would like to thank the TALONS teachers for planning such a great and well organized event. I would like to recognize that this was Mr. Morris’ first time doing the eminent project and I believe he carried it out perfectly. I would like to thank all the student committees that gave up lunches to plan Night of the Notables. I would like to thank the Grade 10 students for providing excellent examples of the amount of effort to put into our projects next year. Lastly, I would like to thank the many parent and teacher volunteers that helped us learn about formal interviews.
