What was your final position on the unit question?
In my understanding, my final answer to the question: “To what extent was the United States justified in dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki?” is as follows, I believe that this bombing of Hiroshima was NOT justified, Although maybe some very good points were brought upon me. In my book, you cannot defend it to the extent that you can say it was not there fault.
If this was a change for you, reflect on that process. If not, why not?
I was thinking about this allot during our project about what side to take on, and it didn’t help my decision when I got home and my mom and dad try to prove to me that the bombing WAS justified. But during this personal debate, I came to think about what Mr. T said:
“The more evidence you see, the more unsure you should be about your argument.”
I thought that in the end if I didn’t change my side of the story at least I could apply that in the case of this project, but in the end, my answer was the same.
Are you satisfied with your final product? What might you have done differently?
I was proud of myself and my group for the project we did. And I wouldn’t say that it was a failure, and I wouldn’t say it excels what my expectations were. Quite honestly this project was great up till the point were we didn’t include a conclusion.
That would be the thing that I we as a group would have done differently, and I think it is a major “blank” in our project. I would also say that the spelling in the video really should be fixed. that was something I needed to sort out, and I think that if these two things had been sorted. the project would have been much better.
What is the most important thing you learned in this unit? Why?
I think I learned that preparation exceeds procrastination. Lots of the problems that occurred could have help if we didn’t leave the editing until last minute. We spent so much time on our evidence, our ideas, our script, we didn’t really leave much time for revision or editing.
I think that I know now preparation ALWAYS exceeds procrastination. Now what we were doing was not procrastination as a whole, but more as a project. The procrastination was not procrastination of the project but procrastination on the hard work in that project, we kept working on the little things. and not on the big picture.
