Good morning, Grizzlies!
Today is Monday, January 25, 2016.
As you know last week, we were practicing our presentation that we will be presenting for the judges the day before the race. It’s great! We are working on adjusting some things that are problems in presenting. One of those problems were saying so, uh, and um way too much. Using these words are unprofessional and we must make sure resist from saying these words. There are many words that you can use for transcending into another topic on your slide/part. We are learning this dexterity for our own futures and presentation for the judges. Hopefully, our resistance to say those words will impress the judges and we will get a much higher grade than our fall race. Our presentation consists of parts for all of our team because the judges said we need more participation. Therefore, this year we will hopefully get a higher score due to correcting our mistakes.
I am representing the blog because I am the blogger and last year, Nathan, our webmaster, represented the slide. I had to overcome my shyness and just go with it. Another thing that we need to correct is reading directly from the screen. The information that is presented on the screen, they can read. Therefore you do not need to read it to them. That is one of the strategies that goes along with answering questions as well. You do not know what questions they will have prepared to ask your team. Because of this, you have to gather your own information and discuss what the slide is about. This will help you in the future because you have to be prepared to answer questions on spot.
After the recent practice, we only said so, twice and uh, once. We are improving a lot with the progression of this presentation. I am super proud of this team because we have overcame a lot and gotten so far. We aren’t worried about victory, but we are worried about cooperation and hard work. The point of that you tried is important to not only to yourself, but the whole team. Victory doesn’t hold anything, but a title. The story is the hard-work and cooperation. It’s what you did to attempt to gain that victory. As a famous person has once said, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”. People might win the title of victory, but did they experience the thrill of hard-work and team work? They are seen as winners and that’s all. All of the rest of the people are seen as losers, even though they tried harder than the winners.
Trying hard is all that matters. I have seen our competitors at races and seen our group as well. We haven’t won 1st place yet, but who says that this is where the story ends? You can try and succeed or don’t try and fail. It depends on your decisions and view. You are thinking, why are they discussing this? This ties into everything we have learned in this group and being a team. You must try and try until you can try no more. You decisions are a huge impact on not only yourself, but everyone else.
With more to come,
Carlee from Green Grizzlies
