Jessica Hinton - Business Project Reflection

Amanda and I chose to make a visual for our project. We started out with a Prezi, but that wasn't working for us. So, we decided to make a collage. We have pictures of President Obama, and President FDR. We have a wordle, that has words that we've learned or used throughout the business unit. We also added some cartoons, that connect to some of the policies, or controversial things that connected to the Presidents. 

The EQ that we used was: What is the role of the individual in creating and sustaining change? 

Our collage displayed the different things that the Presidents have done, so achieve "change". The change that these presidents, as individuals have accomplished during their presidency, has shaped the way things are handled in the United States today. The change they created, has sustained throughout time, and continues to exist today.

World of 100 Analysis

​For a class of at least 32-34 students we had to deiced what the rest of the world would be like if there were only 100 people. The sheet of paper that we had to give our estimations on included a lot of possibilities and diverse features of civilization. So each student wrote down their estimation of how the World of 100 would stack up. After words when the whole class put down their responses they were totaled and averaged. To sum all of it we referred to actual data that represented the World if only 100 people lived. Next was to compare everything from My Average, Class Average, and the Correct Averages. On the paper there were 12 topics from the ratios of Gender, Education, to Religion. I picked 3 of the topics that was most interesting to me even before we looked at the class average or the correct average. So I choose Geography, Age, and Electricity. (results displayed below)

Business Reflection

Jessica and I choose to do our project by hand because we were inspired to do a sort of colleague. We wanted the piece to visual, thats why the pictures and cartoons are on there. To not have people completely lost we had a word diagram that illustrated the most common words spoken throughout the unit.

 Our EQ was: What is the role of the individual in creating and sustaining change? 

 Our piece showed the accomplishments of all the presidents because they are individuals who created change. We were thinking their roles were important in shaping the foundations of America. These presidents were persistant in what they believed in, which helped them sustain change.

Business Unit Reflection! Qaswa, Paige, Prisilla

​Paige, Qaswa & I made a slideshow to show how Obama & Teddy Roosevelt changed individually and systemically after and before their presidency. The causes of systemic and individual change is the result of an appointed leader, who creates strict structured establishments made to fit the needs of everyone. Change comes from one leader, a leader who fights, and continues to move forward with hope.

What causes systemic and individual change?


​Systemic change is something that is inevitable. There are many details that pertain to systemic change, but they will change regardless. It takes an individual to set a trend to cause either positive or negative change. In this scenario, we focused on individuals who attempted to lead a systemic change. For example, during the time that Teddy Roosevelt was in office, he wanted to stop the overwhelming amount of monopolies. These monopolies were created by large companies and trusts. These companies used devilish ways to get money. They would force their buyers into purchasing something they did not want in order to get something they did want. In our visual presentation, we focused on Barack Obama and Theodore Roosevelt. They both wanted to create change in the economy and government. Theodore wanted to spread money around rather than companies hogging hard earned money from citizens. Barack Obama is trying to balance out the percentage comparison of high class to low class citizens. Initially, the gap between rich and poor in America is not only devastating but continually increasing. Obama is an individual wanting to create systemic change.

1. Explain your choice of presentation format.

Katherine and i chose to use a poster format for it is visually appealing as well as informative. we decided to leave a lot of words out and compare the repeating events of history through 2 quotes. One from our present day president, Barack Obama, as well as a quote from a more historic president, Theodore Roosevelt. Both of these individuals were in the process of creating systemic change involving the nation's economy. 

2. Two sentences about your answer to the essential question.

Systemic Change is a process that can be voiced through one individual, but the numbers behind the individual must be a majority. Systemic change is usually for the benefit for the majority's needs. 

3. What questions do you sill have about business in America?

The point of business is to do what you can to make the business successful, so why cant these companies use these methods of earning money?

EQ: Individuals Changing Systems

​1. Explain your choice of presentation format.
Malik and I chose to do a poster because we felt that posters are visual and if this were to be posted, many people would be able to see the points that we were trying to make. We also liked the idea of making it with our hands instead of over the computer.

 2. Two sentences about your answer to the essential question.

Systemic change is when a whole system changes in a big way. Typically, these changes begin with one individual wanting to change a problem with a system. 

3. What questions do you sill have about business in America?
What systems could be developed to prevent monopolies and inflation of certain businesses.

World of 100 Analysis


In this graphic, we are seeing how many people would have good or bad drinking water. What stands out is that in reality only 13 people would have improvised water instead of the 50 or so that myself and the class thought.


This graphic is about how many people would get secondary education. It seems that I did not give enough credit to the general people because my estimates were way off of those of the researchers. The class is seems was also off but not to the extent I was. Despite all the news about uneducated children in other counties The amount of people in the world with education is much larger with those without. In fact it is a kind of comforting notion.

This last graphic is about literacy by gender. In this one again both myself and the class were off in our estimates but the fact is that many people in the world do know how to read and we underestimated them. I think that truly we do not give enough credit to people in other countries, these numbers show that a significant percentage of the world can read.

Overall, between my answers and the correct ones I was not very close with my estimations. The ones I was closet on were religion, gender, and technology.  One catagory that surprised me was that the gender division would be 50/50. I didn't think the world was that even. I think the reason I was so off with my prediction is I don't think I have a complete understanding of the world and I need to understand other countries more. I think I have a very media skewed view, where most of my information comes from how other countries are perceived and not from actual fact.
