The project so far that I have enjoyed studying, was last week when we had to "Summarize Plans from the Constitutional Convention". I wouldn't necessarily say that my academic skills have improved - I have a hard time organizing essays - but I certainly do feel more knowledgeable. I had a hard time finding articles, so I'm going to take the time this weekend to look around some more so I have an easier time finding sources of information. I tend to be good at organizing mys schedule, but I got mixed up on the days and relied too much on the calendar rather than the modules to block off my time.
One benefit I have, is that I am interested in politics. Watching the news - especially in this presidency - is like watching a soap-opera, but with real life consequences. Going through the chosen material has given me many "ah ha" moments, but then I have twenty more questions that make me want to keep learning more, one in particular is why we have the electoral college and who we can "blame" for it. Whenever I see my boyfriend, he always asks me what I've learned so far, and this too helps me further understand the material because I get to see what I actually know, and what I need to read again. If I can't tell you about it, then I don't really know it, do I?
