Transcript of Note-Taking Skills

Cornell Step 4: Reflect
Think and ponder. Take time to think about the topic, relationships, and importance of the information.
Line up your recall columns to see an informal outline and overview of the chapter and your notes.
Write a summary at the bottom of your notes.
Write on the back side of your notes. Make lists of information, write study questions, add diagrams, or jot down questions for class.
Make study tools such as index cards, visual mapping, charts, or mnemonics.
The Two-Column Notetaking System
Simplified Cornell format
Effective for textbook and lecture notes
Cover one side; recite; check your accuracy for feedback

Effective for:
- factual information
- discussions
- math processes
Don't Forget!
Recite

Developing Note Taking Skills
Why is this important?
What are you doing now?
Is it working?
Are there things you can try that would improve your results?
Questions...
Are you taking
GOOD
lecture notes?

Are you taking
GOOD
textbook notes?

Are you reviewing both sets of notes? How?
How often?
The Importance of Notetaking
Taking notes combats
memory fading
and
interference
.
Research shows a
high correlation
between the
quality
of notes and
test performance
and
grades
.
Textbook notes condense large amounts of information into more manageable and
meaningful units
of information.
Studying from effective notes is more time efficient than rereading chapters multiple times.
Learning to use new notetaking/review systems begins by using them to take textbook notes before taking lecture notes.
You can’t study from notes if you can’t find them– keep a
binder
for each class,
date
your notes
Annotation
Annotating is the process of
highlighting
, underlining, making marginal notes, or marking specific information in printed materials.
The Cornell Notetaking System
Cornell Step 1: Record
Cornell Step 2: Reduce
Cornell Step 3: Recite
Cornell Step 5: Review
Three-Column Notes
Identify labels for each column.
Work with all three columns; cover; recite; check your accuracy.
Use for textbook, lecture, and math notes.
Creating Formal Outlines
The Informal Outline
Notetaking System

Write everything down from lecture
Outlines provide a skeleton or overview of the chapter’s structure and sequence of topics.
Modify the formal outlining rules for lower-level information by using bullets or dashes for minor details instead of numerals or letters, such as 1), a), b), 2), a), b), c), and d).
You can create outline notes:
before reading to get an overview of the chapter
during the reading process to organize notes of key
points
after reading a chapter to create a new kind of study tool.
Your Style
What are you currently doing in each class?
Where do you need to improve the most?
Which note-taking style would work best for each class?
What do you need to do to implement these systems? What would put you in the best place to be successful.
How can these systems be implemented for students who want to take their notes electronically?
Google note-taking apps and programs:
Bad news: it's the LEAST effective way to study
Spaced Practice
#1 most-effective study strategy
It means making several contacts with your notes over time
Use immediate ( a little bit now) and ongoing review (every day)
Review before and after class; use as warm-up activity for class or study time

The Problem with Instructor/Friend Notes
Examples
REMEMBERING:
What does “H” stand for on the Periodic Table? (Strictly just recalling a fact)
a)Helium b)Mercury c)Hydrogen d)None of the above
UNDERSTANDING:
Describe the difference between a hypothesis and a theory. (Students need to understand and explain what each term means in order to answer the question)
APPLICATION:

Susan has had problems seeing at night. She never had this problem before, only since she found out she was pregnant. Recently Susan started having a dry eye problem. What vitamin do you think will help Susan?
a) Vitamin A b) Vitamin B c) Vitamin C d) Vitamin D

Please explain the benefit of that Vitamin to Susan.
What are you doing now?
On your notecard, list your classes
Indicate how you take notes now for each
Leave one column blank
Sample
How Many Students Take Notes
Getting a System
forces you to pay attention
helps you to process info in multiple ways
encourages you to move
beyond rote memorization
provide you with excellent study materials

but you should think about
using a system makes your notes more effective - more bang for your buck....the BEST system is the:
once you TAKE the notes, you still have to:
Another good system, that's a little simpler...
Another good system - great for multiple sources...
You can also go old-school - this is best for organizing papers but is harder to use for lecture notes because it may be hard to tell where the instructor is going with his/her lecture...
This is better than nothing, but doesn't force you to synthesize the way the other systems do - creates less effective notes to use for studying.
once you take the notes, you still have to:
Easy
Harder
Hardest
Advantages:
Many students LOVE
On the other hand...
