Transcript of Costas Levels of Inquiry and Cornell Notes

Building deeper understanding
through USEFUL note-taking

Costa's Levels of Inquiry
and Cornell Notes

Costa's Levels of Inquiry
are often displayed as a
3-Story House
level 1
Level 1
This is the foundation for all knowledge.
You "gather" the facts at this level.
Level 2
Now that you have some facts,
you can do something with the information
Level 3
This level goes beyond the classroom to apply
the knowledge gained. Often times, there is no
"right" or "wrong" answer at this level. Instead, answers are either "supported" or "unsupported"
by the material learned.
Remembering the Levels:
Level 1- One finger in the book
Applying Costa's Levels
to Note-Taking
Now that we understand the levels,
we have to find a way to encourage students
to use them in their studying.

Cornell Notes
can help!
Don't think of Cornell Notes as a different way of
TAKING
notes.
Think of it as a different way of
USING
them.
Cornell Format:
Take your notes in this space.
Title and date your notes
However the notes are presented, you may write them in this space in any format!
After the notes are taken, they must be re-read to HIGHLIGHT important points and fill in any missing information.
This area may not exist on EVERY page of notes.
If 3 pages of notes are given in one class, this may only appear at the end of the 3rd page.
The SUMMARY helps you process the purpose of the notes and find this topic again when you want to review.
The SUMMARY of your note-taking goes here:
Add Critical
Questions:
After taking
the notes,
THINK:
What higher
level questions
could be asked
about this
material?
1
2
3
Typically, students take notes in class, and they NEVER look at them again!
In other words, they touch them only ONCE.
By requiring the use of Cornell Notes, we can ensure the notes are touched 4 times, but we hope for FIVE!
Touching Cornell Notes:
1. Take the notes in class
2. Highlight the notes
3. Write the Critical Questions
4. Compose the Summary
5. Review for study or before
an exam.
Touching Traditional Notes:

1. Take them in class
2. Study them
4 out of 5 touches can be teacher required and verified!
The only thing we know for sure is if they took the notes.
Costa's Level
2 or Higher!
Benefits of Cornell Notes:
1. Students learn to take useful notes, increasing student engagement.
2. Teachers can monitor processing and understanding by checking or having students share summaries. (This also makes a great closure activity.)
3. Critical Questions become a great review tool or study guide.
4. Because we know the students are using them, note-taking is not a waste of class time. Notes become valuable!
