These are my research notes where I put in the research I did for my revolutionary thinker, William Harvey. I found some information that I needed and I left some blank because I couldn’t find much and I forgot to cite some because I didn’t really know how to use the website or I couldn’t find information for citing it.
↪How did it go conducting research? Triumphs? Challenges?
It was a little bit hard to find information about William harvey because there wasn’t really a lot of trusted sources and I couldn’t really find what I was looking for and it took a lot of time to read really really long articles about him.
↪What did you learn about yourself when you had to take-notes?
I learned that whenever I am taking notes I usually just paraphrase and also summarize. I sometimes just directly copy and paste it in my notes because I think it is important like a quote.
This is the final draft of my historical narrative
↪ What insights did you gain about narrative hooks that you may not have been so aware of before?
I noticed that hooks can make a big difference in writing and also to the audience because whenever I’m reading something and the introduction is just boring then I don’t really want to continue reading it.
↪ What narrative hooks did you experiment with in your writing?
I tried to just make short hooks so that it’s like fast to read and so I can get right to the point in my writing and it wouldn’t bore me or my readers.
What discoveries did you encounter as you were vlogging?
While I was filming my vlog, reading my paragraphs for my revolutionary thinkers project. I did it on William Harvey, it was late at night and I had to try to get good lighting so I shined a flashlight on my face as I filmed and opened up my document, I even wore my cat ears so that as the audience is watching they will find something interesting to look at while listening to my reading, as hoping my cat ears wouldn’t distract them at the same time. I had to redo mine once because I couldn’t say the name of the person who influenced William Harvey and I really like doing vlogs and I just think it’s really fun because I love to edit videos and I just love watching videos and so I’m usually always in a happy mood whenever I am doing vlogs.

Me and my partner have worked on this project together and this is our ZINE
What is your BIGGEST TAKEAWAY (BIGGEST LEARNING) from our Revolutionary Thinker’s Project?
My biggest takeaway is that big words and looking into a thesaurus really helped me because even with a small change it made me sound more professional and it made my writing sound a lot better, and also i learned how to cite sources and find trusted sources to use.
