Trials and Triumphs of AP Biology
At first I was really apprehensive about using a website like word press which I was unfamiliar with, and seemed very complicated. After I finally became familiar with what I was working with, the layout became very simple to understand and I could focus more on the quality of my work rather than just struggling to get it up to par because of technical difficulties. I have always wanted to start a blog, and this allowed me to express myself without going on long weird tangents about something nobody wants to read about.
I feel a bit bad for other classes who are forced to read this because they might not enjoy it, but I hope they understand how much work we all put into this and how much the topics I write about interest me. One of my favorite assignments was probably the Driving Question assignment because I could spin the lessons we learned any way I wanted and could investigate things that interested me rather than something I was assigned and that directly corresponded to the curriculum. The research I did was very interesting and helped me to understand more about chromatography in a way that I would actually remember.
I am not so sure how college is going to work with the whole group project thing and how much my skills on maze will shine, but I do know that if necessary, I can pull an iMovie out lickety-split. I learned a lot about basic and specific biology pics, but this year really got me excited for the next four years at UC Davis where I will be majoring in Genetics and Genomics.
