When it comes to taking notes for a research project like this, I have always been very bad at it. It is not something I find enjoyable to do and in high school I normally could avoid taking any notes. But for this project I will have to take notes if I want it to be successful. So far I have managed to skim many of the books for my project and mark them with small sticky notes to remember the places that seemed important. After this I plan on writing the important information down in my notebook. Each list of notes will be separated by which book they came from.
Many people have tried to tell me that taking notes would be easier if I would type them out on the computer, but to me that just seems like a bigger hassle. When I am reading something, I do not want to be distracted and with internet right beside me it would be easy to become so. Hopefully during class, I will learn some better ways to take notes.
