Week 2: Khadejah Blair

We are P.O.E.T.I.C (Positivity On Earth Teaches Inspirational Change). This summer our main goal at Artworks for Milwaukee will be to work together to become knowledgeable about crime and violence issues that face the 53204 neighborhood. At the end of our 8 weeks we will have a block party for this community trying to spread the world about the types of crime our neighborhoods are facing and what we can do to stop this.

Last week our team accomplished the following:
  • We did group discussions tasks, which allowed us to practice social and cross-cultural employability skills by getting to know the new faces.
  • We did brainstorming tasks, which  allowed us to practice critical thinking and problem solving, creativity, and innovation employability skills by working together.
  • We also had a sharing session, which allowed us to practice communication and collaboration employability skills by giving constructive feedback.
This week our team is going to accomplish the following:
  • We will complete our flyer's for the block party, which allows us to practice creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • We will do research on four words we have chosen, which allows us to practice critical thinking and problem solving skills.
  • Interns will go to Manpower for a career coaching course, which allows us  to practice professionalism skills.
PERSONAL FEEDBACK- So far my program is going well. I'm learning different skills to write a good poem. The easiest thing is getting along with the different personalities in one room. The most difficult thing is working together as a team when we have group sessions. Theirs a lot of voices and we all want our opinion to be heard. I really encourage students to ge t involved in a program like Artworks so we can have something positive in the summer.
