Avid Fall Semester Exam
Ashley Ngo, 1/11/16, 7th grade
How did I grow this Semester?
Before I started avid, when I needed to take notes I just jotted a bunch of words on a piece of paper. Now that I'm in AVID I learned a new technique it's called "cornell note-taking," it's a 2 column set up, on your left you write down questions that will help you review with the topic later. On the right side you write down important details or information, graphs, charts, tables, etc. Later on you "HD" your notes meaning highlighting, underlining, or circling key phrases.
I never imagined myself being apart of a sport team, until this year, and I love it so much! First semester I have played on the volleyball and basketball team. I'm hoping to play tennis and golf next semester. I enjoy it so much because I feel fit and healthy and volleyball is now my favorite sport because just being on the court makes me forget all about my problems and everything else and my mind is just focused on the game, there is no other feeling like it.
