Unity = well rounded
Early Greeks vigorous. Goal was to be well rounded: unity of knowledge and activity.

Types of note-taking formats Sentence- Notes written in sentences, but telegraphically: w/ abbrevs. for common wrds. Articles ("a", "an", etc.) left out

Paragraph- Like real paragraphs, clustered around main idea, but sentences telegraphic and transitions left off

Definition- Name or term, followed by dash or colon and explanation

List- Word or phrase heading, followed by series of items. No numbers unless relevant. Use bullet pts. instead

Combination- mix of other formats What are main types of note-taking formats? How do texts show intonation? Intonation in textbooks Boldface signals heading, subhead. May also indicate key word, phrase

Manage text anxiety Change your time habits Stick to a schedule Think in terms of tasks Devise a system Keep things flexible Overcome internal distractions Minimize multitasking Cultivate concentration Use double lines under words or phrases to signify main ideas. Use single lines under words or phrases to signify supporting material. Mark small circled numbers near the initial word of an underlined group of words to indicate a series. Rather than underlining a group of three or more important lines, use a vertical bracket in the margin. Use asterisks in the margin to indicate ideas of special importance. Circle keywords and key terms. Box words of enumeration and transition. Place a question mark in the margin, opposite lines you do not understand, as a reminder to ask the instructor for clarification. If you disagree with a statement, indicate that in the margin. Use the top and bottom margins of a page to record ideas of your own that are prompted by what you read. On sheets of paper that are smaller than the pages of the book, write longer thoughts or summaries; then insert them between the pages. Even though you have underlined the important ideas and supporting materials, still jot brief cues in the side margins. Understand each question type Move systematically through the test Learn from experience
