What do you think are the strengths in your project? My strength was to manage my time wisely. I organized my time so I had time to do this project. I got this done and handed in on time. My information was clear and it had both sides’ perspective. My bibliography is clear and complete. What do you think you need to improve on in your project? In the video I could’ve spoke louder and said things more clearly. I couldn’t really hear my own voice on the video. I also should have added the credits in the video, but I didn’t know how to do it. Next time I can ask the teacher.
