Selected quotes from "WHAT THIS MEANS TO ME" section
I think that through this research paper I really developed as a researcher.
I learned to use the computer to gather information which I had never attempted
before because I was scared to. I no longer shy away from large books, because
I learned to take things slowly, and one paragraph at a time. I also learned
to not get frustrated or become overwhelmed. I also realized that if you
try your best, it will be satisfactory, and you don't always have to be
the absolute best. I will no longer take movies for granted, because I understand
all the effort put into them. At the very beginning of the project, when
the teachers were explaining what was required in this paper I got very
frightened, because it sounded like a lot of work. When I got into it though,

there are many difficulties and at the same time, moments of triumph. I
learned you have to be independent in this world, and not wait for something
to come to you. I'm proud that I made many of my own decisions in this project.
I was surprised that l took the risk of changing rny topic, but even so
I am extremely glad that I did because this is what I really wanted. I think
I developed as a researcher and as a person.

if I will be a car maker I will try to make it so it won't be bad for the
environment. I learned a lot about myself that I could do this project by
myself with out teacher's help. Sometimes my writing wasn't really good
but then got better in my writing. I am really proud of myself for doing
