This week has been a week of skills. I have learned to develop new skills to help me with my work in class. I have developed such skills as how to read for information, how to comprehend what I'm reading, how to make connections to what I'm reading and how to take better notes on what I'm reading.
Reading for information has been important because I need to find certain things that help clue towards the main message and story behind my book. It's also important in helping out with my other skills, reading and finding certain information helps me make better connections and take better notes which helps with my comprehension of the book. It's really a whole new interdependent system of skills that help me with my work.
Comprehension is very important. This is because if I don't understand what I'm reading how could I make connections or take notes? It wouldn't be easy without comprehension. To help me comprehend I use my notes to look back at certain moments of the book and link them with what I am reading at the very moment. That's also a part of the interdependence of the skills.
Making connections is something I've also learned to do recently. To make connections is to help myself get immersed into the story. The interdependence of the skills that has to do with connection would mainly be comprehension. If I understand what the story is saying then I can easily connect to it. This is also made easier with notes.
Taking notes has been very important as well. It'll not only help me in the long-run with my presentation but it helps with the comprehension of the whole story as well as keeping track of the information I have found useful and important within my book. Like I said, they're really all interdependent on one another.
