Today's AVID
Strategy: Cornell Notes

-It's a method for mastering information,
not just recording facts.
-It is efficient.
-Each step prepares the way for the
next step of the learning process.
Does this sound like any of your students?

However, AVID strategies are great
for ALL students and
can be easily implemented
within your classroom.
In this system, you:
Record legibly and concise on the right side.
1. Record
Refine lecture by underlining main ideas, circling key
words, and starring important information.
2. Refine
Reduce notes down to just the main ideas
and create questions on the left
3. Reduce
Recite: Cover the right (or fold paper)
and recall column on the right.
4. Recite
To reflect, study and draw conclusions
about how your notes fit the overall
frame of reference for your academic study.
5. Reflect
Recap by reviewing all notes and questions
and recap the main ideas in a summary section.
6. Recap
Review the notes, questions, and summary
using the recite method; experts
suggest 10 minutes a day.
7. Review
Our goal today was to teach you a strategy
that you could implement in your classroom.

Why will students
take Cornell Notes?

AVID Students are taught
to take notes from
lecture, textbook,
discussion, etc.
How do I reinforce usage?
• Give a grade
• Extra credit on test
• Let them use on a test
-60% of the material within 2 weeks
(Rate of Forgetting)
-Just taking notes you will retain 60% of the material
Thorough, organized notes you review you keep 90-100%
Without notes you
will forget…
•Handouts-leave a margin on the left for questions
•Do the questions with them sometimes or
•Give questions and have them take notes

How can I use them in
ALL classes?
