As I enter my second year of CCP, we better be on the watch for more homework, speeches (in Public Speakng), lecturing, and best of all, lab work in our science classes, namely Biology and Chemistry.
While the assigned texts can stay at home, we will still need to take notes and and bring the appropriate lab manual on lab days. (Public speaking does not have a textbook.) By the way, the biology notes are a mere “fill-in-the-blank” approach in a booklet (which I bring to class). I have mixed feelings about this organization. It’s easy and already prepared, but waters down some of the freedom of a “true” notebook, and can be a little “mechanical” in terms of its study style. Chemistry is taught by a very conventional professor uses no computer technology in his instruction. We take real notes with him.
As far as transfer plans or even later courses, I really want to truly take things “one day at a time,” without merely vaunting it. Therefore, blog posts, whether academic or otherwise, will focus chiefly on current issues, whether school or personal. In the final analysis, no matter what college or career path I pursue, I’ll always be learning something. After all, lifelong learning is part and parcel of who I am.
