Self-Reflection 5 themes of geography Santander

Strengths: I thinks One of my strengths was that I made my project a creative idea and had a lot of examples, definitions and experiences that could be easily understood.

Improvements: I could have speaked louder and clearer, or could have practiced my oral/presentation skills.

Difficult topics: For me the visible/invisible features were easy to understand but difficult to show I understood, I also struggled to find the definitions in my own words.


I think I deserve a 3.5 because I followed the rubric and checklist having a creative idea in mind and showing my knowledge about the topic. The improvement most of my peers told me about was about presentation.

Secondary/Primary Source


(Everything is a primary/secondary source)

There 2 types of sources, Primary and Secondary source.

Primary Source:

A  primary source is information  that has been created based on personal experience of an author, director, reporter,etc.
Example: Diary. 

This is  Anne Frank Diary, I know this is a primary source because it is a autobiography, she wrote this diary from a story she witnessed, a personal experience.

Secondary Source:

A secondary source is information that is taken from the place were it was created, were it happend, for example, the secondary source didint experience the fire it reported, it just heard about it and later reported it.
I know textbooks are a secondary source because they talk about history, and creations and things the writer didint experience but the writer heard or learned it with another source.
