Reflection and Self Assessment

Think to Observe!

We observe thing around us, what about observing inside us!

Observing my thoughts, my feeling, my actions, my needs, my wants...and just observe. No need to analyse what am I observing.

 

Who are we?

 
Who are we? - Are we parents or caretakers or teachers or just adults? Who are we as facilitators? What are facilitators? What is facilitation? We need feedback for our growth, we need to reflect on the roles we play.

Who Am I ?

“Who AM I?” Am I not many things - Am I a child only? Who is a child? Does the word ‘child’ sounds like someone who is helpless, does not know much or not capable? But when I see a painter inside me or a carpenter or a scientist - does that makes me someone different? Does that allow me to be me rather than just a child?
Yes, we reflected in our week and explored what all we were? The realization that we were many just in one week brought us closer to our own confidence.

Self Feedback

At the campus, experiences come in many different forms. This week we traced the skills and analyzed if we needed to reduce or increase any activities or change our schedule.

Images - Same or Different

What will happen if you think about you as 'lazy' and you think that others also think that you are 'lazy' and also you are fine others thinking you as 'lazy'?

Now think that you think you as lazy' and you think that others think that you are 'active' and also you want are others thinking that you are 'active'?

So what happens when all your images are similar (as in scenario one). And what happens when some of your images are different ( as in scenario two)?

My Profession

What is your profession? Often the profession is considered when one “grows” up. Often kids say “when I grow, I will become”...question to ponder “are they not something today?”

Stars assess self

Imagine  Aarohi where there are no tests and exams - because we believe that children can assess themselves, can reflect on this work on an ongoing basis. Also because children do not need to learn for some external objective (marks) but for their own love for learning. 

This term we assessed ourselves with parents by sharing our stars - we called it ‘STAR party’! 

I don't like it

I don't like it.
I can't do.
I don't want to do.

These are very common expressions. How do we bring discovery in the clouds of such self-doubts?

I don't like or I don't know?
I can't do or its new or different for me?
I don't want to do or I don't know how to do?

We explored our own road blocks in any task. We used the tool of a hammer to discover self. We tried finding our own actions, thoughts or beliefs leading to not able to achieve that task.

I am able

I can't do...do you get this thought in your mind anytime you stuck or face with any problem or face a new/uncomfortable task. We are exploring 'empowerment'  this term.  "I am Able".

 

Often

We don't give direct answers

We help by not helping.

We bring challenges.

We ask to think

We ask to fail

We encourage to try

We create unfamiliar works

We leave to 'figure out'

Forgiveness

I love you, but sometimes I hurt you. 
I care about you, but sometimes I am harsh to you. 
I think about you, but sometimes I am not listening to you. 
I make many mistakes.
And I know you forgive me
And move along with me. 
But sometimes it's difficult for you to forgive me.
If knowingly or unknowingly, if I have hurt you in any which way,
On this day of the year, I ask for forgiveness from bottom of my heart with all my spirits. 
I say "Michhami Dukkadam".
