1. Description of Our Team
In order to reach our goal we divided ourselves to do different tasks to finish everything quickly. But everyone in our team still have to share their ideas to each other so that our project would be worth it and to lessen the stress of our teammate in which she is assigned to. In putting up our team together, we confirmed our roles and responsibilities, we establish schedules, we identify deadlines and make sure that our overall job is completed within the time specified. If issues arise with our ongoing project, we will seek help and edvice from our teacher, Sir Vincent Tabor, to make sure everything will be okay and to avoid mistakes in our way. Then we analyzed the kind of skills our members are capable of before we begin to assign different tasks. We are assigned this way not because we have time available or each of us will be comfortable working with each other but because we have the right skills. We keep the team's mission upfront everyday because members should be clear about the project's mission when we agreed to work together on the project. We build a team communication plan since we aren't neighbors, so we established communication channels among team members so there can be an exchange of information in a timely and accurate way. We do meet-ups or chat online as a way of communication. During meetings, we ask questions to clarify or gather information on out topic. We also ask for adult help in our parents if ever they have some ideas to share with us that can help us in our project.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
None of us had any experience in entering an international project and it is our first time to encounter such stress and big problems. We had some problems but we had to work on this project, one main problem is that our exams are nearly approaching so even in this case we still balance our time in making our project and reviewing for our nearly approaching examinations that is less than 5 days. It was also difficult to make an agreement with our groupmates because of their busy schedules. We also had a hard time finding time in doing this project. First, because examinations are nearly approaching. Second, because of our busy schedules, lastly because of the fact that we are not allowed to go out and meet them in places. We had to do our project in our own homes in other words we had to do it long distance but we could overcome all these problems so that our project would be in great success.

6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our project can fit requirements by enhancing one's personal knowledge. Students have learned that vehicles are not only for transportation but also for business. Students can increase their business skills and ideas because of our project. Our group have done surveys that can really help us and we have done brainstroming as a group. We've understood that people should be flexible on what will happen. Always be open minded and hoping for a peaceful result. We've discovered that every project that is implemented by our school should be properly done by each and everyone of us through diligent researches and sharing of ideas by all of the group members. Internet for teaching and learning have been more effective because it is where we can read the meaning of such topic.
