This blog assignment has been difficult but yet very informative for me. I learned a lot about the topic of adopting and the psychological and emotional effects it has on children. I was able to find a lot of different information from various different viewpoints. I think some of the benefits of focusing on a topic in phases was it was easier to break it down and it didn't seem overbearing. I think in some ways I will approach the way I learn about topics differently because of this assignment. One big way is I will look at the credibility of the source a lot better now than I would've ever have before. I think I will also look more into the source as a whole to better widen my knowledge. It has made me more confident in my ability to discuss topics with others because it has given me the chance to strengthen my ability to research topics. I will be more willing to discuss them since I am better able to research them. The most valuable thing I've learned about research is that you need to be thorough when looking at sources. Before, I wasn't going very deep into my research and now I have the skills needed to be able to find sources and to broaden my knowledge in a topic.
