How did it go conducting research? Triumphs? Challenges?
I had many challenges over the time we were researching. The first challenge I had is that it was hard to find the information we really needed because most of the information was basically talking about the same thing over and over again. Most of the information was about his artwork, his inventions, and about his life while growing up.
What did you learn about yourself when you had to take notes?
When taking notes I found out that it was easy and hard at the same time. Sometimes it was easy, but other times it was hard, for example in the situation where you have to research was hard, but when just writing down notes was easy. I thought taking notes was very hard, and personally I really hated taking notes, but while taking notes I have learned that when it comes to the end to write paragraphs, notes are the most helpful tool ever. I used the notes the most when writing paragraphs, so I think I just have learned a new technique of writing.
