Feedback\Feedforward: Tabitha you have done really well at summarising and you have nearly filled up your tree wich means you have been to lots of different sites to gather this info!Next time you could find lots of different strategies to summarise because it doesn't seem like you did great in the first task.

Evaluation: Thanks for the feedback Bella, I think that I have improved my skills at notetaking I have used a range of sites and got the most important parts of the facts, I could improve on finding new strategies to summarise like Bella said.
