My Capstone was a Dance Mini-course that was to help make children feel more comfortable expressing their feelings. This mini-course included teaching, learning, and performing. My goal was to put together a showcase to show my work, but that changed once I started the mini-course. I changed my plans and decided to have the participants write a short reflection on their time with me. I taught them two short dances and taught them two different stretching techniques that they could use in the future. Learning all of that taught the girls to tap into their memory. This also helped wine them down after a long day at school. In the end, some of the girls sent their reflection and it was amazing for me to see what I have done for them.
Provide a summary of the contents of your video and a rationale for why YOU chose this topic, in paragraph form. in the video, we created a PSA to tell our audience about what water contamination is, its effects of it, and how to filter it. I chose this topic because I feel like it is something everyone should know about and be careful with. the filtering technique we used is also something I feel the majority of people could do, especially if you are somewhere where clean water isn’t available. I also felt as though it was a great topic considering the recent water contamination rumors earlier this month. What did you do well and what could you have done differently? one thing I did well was contribute as much as I could, especially since it was four of us. One thing I could have done differently was to prepare better for the video. What was the most meaningful part of the experience of creating the PSA? the most meaningful part of the experience of creating the PSA was learning more about contamination that I didn’t previously know
- How do the earth’s systems affect each other? During hurricanes, the hydrosphere interacts with the atmosphere because of the heavy rains caused by the water rising. the hydrosphere interacts with the geosphere by possibly destroying things like houses, trees, or anything on land. the hydrosphere interacts with the biosphere because animals can be killed or affected by changes in their habitat.
- How can an understanding of environmental science aid in handling natural disasters? I think understanding environmental science can aid in handling natural disasters because you could know what effects certain disasters have on the environment and be able to prepare
- What efforts can we make to create a sustainable future? I would say as far as hurricanes, we should have more “hurricane-proof” items like ceilings, appliances, doors, and windows. for others, we can invest in having more and better shelters for these disasters as long as food preparations in case of a power outage.
