I have been creating a 25 hour Project-Based Learning project on learning to golf. So far, I have learned that golf can be enjoyable and frustrating at the same time. I have discussed golf with different people, read, had a golf lesson, practiced golfing, and editing my wiki.
Time spent: 11 hours and 10 minutes
- 10 minute talk with Eva
- 1 hour talk with my mom via Skype
- 3 hours reading…..rules, rules and more rules ( I think I could spend the entire 25 hours reading rules)
- 3 hours golfing
- 1 hour talking golf with dad, dressing up in golf attire and taking pics
- 1 hours setting up wiki
- 2 hours preparing wiki, finding widgets, learning how to use widgets, editing pictures
I wish that my wiki could do more things and that widgets were all free. Also, golf is expensive.
I have learned that you need to be relaxed when swinging a club; in addition to the fact, I have used some muscles that I have not used and they HURT!
The project is going well. If I can get over the frustration of not being able to hit the ball the way I want EVERY time, I might enjoy it as a leisure activity.
This project is one I probably would have put off due to my previous experience with golf. I am glad I have taken a step to know and understand golf.
