I am working a little ahead in this class because my life is about to get wild with a wedding coming up. This post, sadly, is going to be a recap on my independent learning project. I say sadly because this was one of my favorite things about this class and I had fun blogging about it. Even though I am sad it is over, I am also glad to have one less thing to do!
I have learned a lot about myself through this independent learning project. I have honestly always looked at learning, and school in a negative way, a hassle rather. This project has made learning FUN again. I enjoyed learning and it really made this class my favorite and gave me something to look forward to every week. It was really easy to motivate myself to work on this throughout the semester. It was easy because it really is something that I love to do. If I could do anything in the world at any time, it will always be spending time with my horse. The fact that I got to receive a grade to spend time with my horse, and practice becoming a better rodeo athlete really was fun. Some weeks it did become challenging simply because there just is not enough time in the day. The best part of the project for me was blogging. It really is fun to share my passion with everyone else. I am on the teaching track and with DEFINITELY incorporate independent learning projects into my class room.
I really do want to thank Ms. Ellington for assigning this to us. It was fun, and not only did I enjoy doing mine, I also enjoyed viewing everyone else’s every week too. I know essentially it was more assignments, but at the same time I would consider the independent learning project a weekly break. Every week it forced us to take a break from our busy lives and essentially do something we all love. It helped me to clear my mind every week and gave me an excuse to push everything aside and spend time doing what I love most, spending time with my horses. Because this is the last independent learning project, I am going to include several pictures of all my fur babies. I do hope you all enjoyed my independent learning project as much as I did! 🙂
