NACE Skills Reflection Report

NACE SKILLCOURSE
Teamwork/ Collaboration Wind Ensemble
Reflection

We use teamwork and collaboration in band by having to listen to each other’s sound for us to tune to each other while we play so we can produce the best sound. We also critique each other so the other person can get better a correct a mistake. You also need more than one person to make a band, so each person is necessary to produce the music that we do.
Skill #2Oral/Written Communication
First Year seminar
ReflectionThis class helped with my written communication by having me write my first college papers. I hadn’t realize how much high school over prepares you in some aspects of writing, while under preparing you in others. I hadn’t even heard of Chicago style bibliographies, and now I can used it for both papers in this class to reasonable success.
Skill #3Digital Technology
CourseBiology lab 202
Reflection We use digital technology in our biology lab by creating various graphs and using various equipment. Equipment can include microscopes, computers, and spectrometers. We would gather data through observation and by use of the spectrometers, then put it into the computer to generate bar graphs and scatterplots. This helped me by teaching me how to use features in excel I didn’t even know about before.

Skill 4# Professionalism/ Work ethic                     Course: GPS Service project

Reflection:

GPS has taught us about work ethic and professionalism because of our service project. It has us going out in the community and corresponding with others on campus and occasionally in the Green Bay area. It has helped me personally by keeping me motivated to do my best in all my classes.

Skill 5: Global/Intercultural Fluency                     Course: History

While the history course I am currently in may focus on US History, it still teaches us about the different cultures in the US, including some of the different cultures within the Native tribes. This shows everyone how diverse life can be, and how even though we are diverse, we are  more than capable of respecting everyone despite our differences.
