Primate Biogeography


To be honest, when given this assignment, I thought it was going to be a lot more difficult than it actually was. I had always thought that just copying down the notes and the important parts of what the teacher said was enough for me to grasp the knowledge for future exams. This assignment provided me with new insight on how to retain the information I needed to, but by doing much less work. I honestly believed that I was going to struggle with this assignment and it was going to be just tedious task for me, however I was able to see that it actually went by a lot faster than I thought it was going to because, like I have said in previous posts, I am a very visual learner and by taking notes through pictures and designs, I was able to remember the information better than I would have if I just copied down the bullets on the powerpoint presentation. One thing that I found very intriguing, was that even days after taking these notes, I would instantly be able to picture the setting of my class as I drew that part of the sketch. For example, the finch. Every time I look at it, I instantaneously see the exact notes on the smart board, the professor speaking, and the ideas being shared by the students. I cannot say for sure that I will continue to use this form of note-taking for the rest of my classes, although, I can definitely see myself using it again for a class. Link
