Glenesse's 2 Minutes Reflection

Poverty in Winnipeg: 1st Draft

Poverty in Winnipeg: Final Draft

Please reflect and talk about the changes you made between the first and final cut of your video movie. Were the student comments helpful in making your final cut better?

The changes we made between the first and final draft cut of our movie was that we added our evidence of proof of our interview with our expert because we didn"t have it last time. we deducted some information that wasn"t as important as others because it was too much to read. JB also added her voice in the end, but only our names. The student's comments really helped make the cut better because we didn't have our evidence of the interview with our expert and they suggested to find another picture for our information instead of most of them in one.

How did you find your expert? List 3 important points your expert added to your movie. What did you learn from your expert?

We found our expert just by calling Winnipeg Harvest and asking if they could answer a few questions about poverty in Winnipeg. Some points we added to our movie was that 1/3 of immigrants that live in Canada will likely be in poverty. We learned that Manitoba is in the top 3 for child poverty rates in Canada with 1/5 of children are in poverty. We also learned that over 23000 children receive emergency food from Winnipeg Harvest. I learned from the expert that there are many ways to prevent poverty from occurring and that we have to aware our community that Poverty in Winnipeg is a big issue. We can volunteer to help in food banks and soup kitchens.

What was your greatest success in the 2 minutes project. What skills will you take away with you and use in the future.

My greatest success in the 2 minutes video was trying to find out a lot of information when there aren't much sites on our topic. I also thought I succeeded in the interview because at first I was really nervous but in the end we found out a lot of information and i wanted to do more. In the future I would like to take with me my courage to talk to an expert without being shy and nervous.

What frustrated you during the movie making process? What strategies did you use to become successful?

What frustrated me during the movie making process was helping Julibella in finding pictures while I was gone. For me it was hard finding pictures when there aren't very much sites to look at. Strategies I used to become successful was trying my best to find pictures when there aren't very much any and just trying my best at everything.

Why is 2 Minutes project important to Grade 8 Students?

The 2 Minutes project is important to the Grade 8 students because they should know the issues going around them and telling them to others. Where we can try to make a difference at a young age. If kids like us can make a difference it will reflect on the adults to make a difference too. All our voices matter. No matter what age, we can make a difference.

How will you make a difference in the future?

I will make a difference in the future by making good choices and be good role models to try to make a difference so kids younger than me, our future, can also try to make a difference. I will try to aware everyone of the issues around the world so we can try to stop them and make our world better. I can tell people that they are not alone and there are people who have it worse than us.
