Global Experience

What was the best thing about Global Experience and the and the work leading up to it? I liked the airplane flight and I also liked making my project.                                     What was the most challenging part? The most challenging part for me was putting my project together in time.                                                                                                How have I grown as a learner? I grew as a learner by being independent.                     Why is studying another country important? It helps you learn about others culture.    What is the best thing about student driven learning? I think the best thing about it is we get to control our learning.

Why we should have less homework   by Yoni shamah                               

It has memes about it. Kids hate it. 

Homework. I am certain that for kids to succeed we need to lower the homework load on them.


There are many reasons why excessive amounts of homework is bad. Such as it causes unhealthy study habits.  It also takes away time to use your creativity. It also takes away family time.


Homework can also negatively affect students health in ways such as not getting enough sleep. It also causes anxiety. Additionally it causes depression.                              


It also takes away time from being a kid in ways such as it harms social development. Homework also takes away free time. Also 65% of kids play sports and some had to quit just to make more time for homework.


One reason people think we should have more homework is because it makes you more responsible.  Instead of homework to teach responsibility, kids can have chores. Kids can also check out books from a library and return it on time. 


So concluding this, there needs to be less homework for kids. 

So they can succeed, be healthy, and be happy.

Global Experience Blog Post

Yesterday we went to junior and senior kindergarten to see them present to us what they were doing. Junior was doing refugees and senior did their family trees. I learned about the seniors family trees. I liked that they had a map showing where their families came from.

My Thoughts on Torah

Why did Esau and Jacob rival so much? I think it is because they were opposite from each other    and because they also fought each other in the womb and they had parents that played favorites.  Do differences make sibling rivalry easier or harder? I think easier because they had less to rival each other in.

Caste system

       In my opinion the caste system is a terrible way for Indian society to work. As far as I’m concerned, it isn’t changing.   

What is the caste system? It is a way of putting people into classes like brahmin kshatriya vaisya sudras and last and poorest dalits which are considered subhuman.

You can’t move up in a caste system so if you’re a dalit you’re staying like that for the rest of your life which isn’t fair. This means if your great great great great great great great great great great great, grandpa was a poor beggar that’s how you are going to grow up.


That’s just not fair because what if you’re a really good doctor but you can’t get a job in medicine because of your caste? What if you were able to go to school and make lots of money but can’t because of your caste?


What if you are not a Hindu, would you still have to      

follow the caste system?


Because of all of these reasons, I am very against the Caste System.
