I think that my mid-year exam in my 8th grade was a good experience. I thought that creating a Weebly portfolio and writing what we had learned in the fall term was a great idea by Mr. Fitzsimmons. Writing my mid- year reflection could explain a lot about me when many of my peers have read it. For the exam, I also thought that going to other peoples portfolios was a neat idea as well. I thought it was a "fun" idea to take the time to wander around peoples portfolios, read their mid-year reflections, and see what other content they had.
I thought that reading my peers portfolios helped me understand my peers more than I ever will. Each of my peers reflections taught me that there are many struggles in life and that there is always a path to success. The path may lead you to stops along the way that you may not want to approach, but there is a always a road to success. Not only did it help me understand them but it helped me understand myself. It helped me learn about myself because, I was not a very understanding person some four years ago. I was a very confused fourth grader. I did not pick things up quite as quick as some of my other friends did. But now, I can see through the looking glass of my soul.
