My goal this next semester is to work on my independent research and learning skills. To do this I will read either a book, magazine article or a newspaper for at least 30min and make at least five annotation each time I read. I will do this every weekend. In my physics class my group and I were asked to read and summarize many individual sites in order to form an opinion and conclusion about a topic. I had many difficulties with this project because I have always struggled to understand long readings due to my lack of being unengaged. This resulted in our project not having a long summary like I had hoped.
