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.

Applying Costa's Levels
Now that we understand the levels,
we have to find a way to encourage students
to use them in their studying.

Typically, students take notes in class, and they NEVER look at them again!

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
Touching Traditional Notes:
1. Take them in class

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!
