Note-Taking Tips:
Having the right equipment:
Always come prepared to class
A fancy pen or pencil
A nice, crisp notebook or binder

Put the date and the objectives before you begin taking notes.
Note-Taking Tips:
Keeping it organized:
Don't write down every word.
You won't make it.
Listen for the big ideas.
Listen to your teacher's explanation before trying to write it all down.
If you're writing, you can't pay attention.
Leave lots of space
It's less overwhelming
Note-Taking Tips:
Using Cornell Notes
Cornell Notes were created in the 1950s by Walter Pauk.
They have been proven to help you understand the material better, synthesize information, and think critically.
Why fancy pen, pencil, and notebook?
There's just something that makes you feel more productive when you have your own special supplies.

How can you expect to take good notes on a torn sheet of paper you borrowed and a garbage pencil you found on the floor?
Let's Begin!
Divide your paper into two columns
The left column is 1/3 of the page, the right is 2/3 of the page.
You will take notes in the right column.
In the left column, you will write questions and keywords.
After the lecture, you will summarize your notes at the bottom.
Homework for tonight (due next class):
Locate this Prezi on my webpage and choose a video to watch.
You will take Cornell Notes on the video you choose.
Try to take all the notes on the first try, it's harder than you think!
After you have finished with notes, don't forget to complete the summary at the bottom
Be prepared to submit your notes and discuss the video you watched next class.
