Can't do a Cornell note-taking assignment
I have ADHD and I'm picky when it comes to everything about learning. I'm also very picky about note-taking and which format to use and my Instructor gave us an assignment where we had to use the Cornell note-taking method to write notes on the "I have a dream" speech by Martin Luther King. I have tried to watch video after video trying to understand the Cornell note system and I still can't comprehend it. To me, it's overly detailed the format stresses me out and overwhelms me. I sent a message to my Instructor saying I couldn't do it but I feel crappy because I don't want to fail the assignment and have my grade drop but it's not my fault I can't comprehend the assignment and he's forcing us to do a one-style note-taking method.
I do know that after this I'm going to my admissions rep for disability services.
