I don’t know very much about Shakespeare. I know that he wrote a ton of plays, comedies, and dramas. I know there was a long period of time where he kind of disappeared and we have no idea where he was or what he was up to. I know he wrote one of his plays based off of his son. I learned some stuff about Shakespeare last year in drama. We also performed a little bit of Shakespeare but I haven’t done much with Shakespeare. I have seen A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the junior high and I have also seen Comedy of Errors. I think that learning about the life of Shakespeare is really interesting because he had a very interesting life. Reading some of his stuff is kind of hard because we don’t talk that way at all now so it’s really hard to understand. I hope I can understand Shakespeare better by reading it more because it is really confusing and to be honest, I have no idea what I’m saying when I’m performing it.
I think self assessment is a really important skill to have because when you are working on anything, you need to decide if you have done a good job. In your school work, you need to assess your work to see if it reaches a good standard to turn it in. Self assessment is even more important in your job. If you do sloppy work all the time in your job, you are not likely to keep it. Looking over and analyzing your work is very important if you want to go to good places in your future. Self assessment is important from the beginning. If you make a habit in your early education to do sloppy work and not check anything that you have done, that will bring you down a lot in your later education and especially in college. When I decide to look over my work for school before I turn it in, I usually find at least a few things I need to fix or add. If you don’t do any self assessment, you won’t get very far and you won’t grow at all.
