WEEK ONE

DEFINE THESE WORDS:

We as students were divided into groups and given our first assignment. The assignment entitles us to define words and to create a A0 poster of how we as a group defined these words.

We discussed these words and each student started to sketch there understandings.
As we went through the words the words meanings started to connect with other words we had to define. After all the words were discussed we chatted about everyone’s sketches and started to combined it into the required A0 poster.
