When I began this class in August, I knew that it would require a lot of work and dedication. I had a difficult time taking notes, I was not familiar with the way notes are taken since I had not learned the proper way. I also struggled to learn how to do a reading log. I had never done one before. I am now able to take effective notes and complete a reader response/reading log. Another struggle has been learning how to properly cite, although I still struggle with it, I know where to find information to complete it properly. I have learned to not just read whatever I am reading, but to also analyze and look for the meaning behind it.
