Physical Literacy Assessment

3 -4 times a week on the bike for 40 minutes.

Start slow, gets faster – interval training.

Started in January.  Reports that it is getting easier.  Still working on physical improvement – leg strength and lung capacity.

Goal is to be fit and healthy.  Reports that diet is good – healthy – no gluten, dairy, and very little sugar.

Still thinking about how to apply the training to a specific physical skill.

As Emma has just begun to develop her physicality on the bike, she is just starting to get results.  I have informed her to be patient and stick with it, as she will for sure get results in the next month or two.

Weekly Assessment Meeting

Happening Now:

Make up course – will have things to post for Maddy for assessment.

Will be done section B by spring break.  The rest of the course is about working on people.  Needs to apply.  Ex: makeup for mature skin.

Plan to be done the full course by the end of the school year.

Assessment for Scientology:

Look for writing structure, organization, readability, flow, not repeating the same details.  Also, storytelling ability – when done reading the piece, are you satisfied – learned something.

Still reading Dianetics.  Done by beginning of March.

Started the infographic on cult vs. religion.  Will be done by the end of month.

Meet with Jessica to discuss science related inquiry.

Idea for a quick film – drawing tablet, photoshop, voiceover – for a final product for film course.

Need to find connections/develop deeper questions with religion/cults and greater society and government.




Mid Year Assessment Meeting


Emma feels like she has made a lot of progress since September.  She feels that she has achieved goals.  Since it is her 3rd year here, Emma understands how the school works.  She is highly self-motivated.

She has gone more in depth into crimionolgy – cartels –  and has done deep learning there.  She is now moving towards cult and religions and is doing strong inquiry.

Make up quest – how to do makeup on people (making them feel comfortable)?  How to work in the industry?  How to be clean and safe? Emma can see things that she has not seen before.  She is taking an online professional course.  Emma now looks at people and can see how they can better themselves.  Ex skin, eyebrows, etc…

She is reading more.  Listnening to podcasts.  Reads a lot of articles.  Improved finding worthy sources.  Also made improvements in writing – especially over the course of the last few years through providing better exmples and backing up her ideas more fully.  When writing about her passion, she gets better results.

Math is going well.  Generally understands it.  Making progress.  It has been worse.



Become a certified makeup artist.

More make up learning in general.

Learn more about cults – especially Scientology.  Compare/contrast cults  and religion.

Looking at forensics for science.

Needs more help organizing herself.  Break things down into smaller tasks.

My ultimate goals for physical literacy

This year for physical literacy, I will be using an exercise bicycle. My goals for this are to get more into shape and fit exercise into my everyday life.

A main goal of mine that I’m working at is to live my life as healthily as possible. I have mostly focused on my diet for the past year or so, due to recent illness, and have completely changed my eating habits to be much healthier. I have noticed an immense difference in my mood, health and overall life. Now, I would like to really focus on my physical health by doing more exercise that works well with me and my lifestyle.

I’ve really got into my health recently and I feel very motivated to keep on going and to feel one hundred percent. I am exited to start exercising and really going in depth with my health and body, and I think this will really make a difference in my overall life.
