My thoughts at the beginning of the activity were very off-setting I was extremely worried that I was going to fail and not be able to understand what I was reading and that all the strategies that I was thinking of using were not going to help me. As I was reading the annotated article I was like this is not bad not sure why I had worked myself up.
I learned that I can do anything as long as I take my time and I stop underestimating myself. For me, reading is something that I love and I think I had overthought the article and was worried it was going to make me hate reading articles like this one.
When looking back at the last 4 weeks I can say that I have enjoyed this class the most. I love the way that you encourage us to read for 2 hours and that you hold us accountable for that reading every week by making us summarize the reading that we did that week. I forgot how much I love to read a book and think back on what I had read in tell this class. Thank you so much for that. The only thing in this class that was a part that was frustrating was reading something outside my comfort zone.
