Transcript of Reading and Note-taking

This is reading in college, right?
Reading in College
Research Study on Reading
A Harvard Professor asked
1500
students to read a textbook chapter and write a short summary. Just
15
students

were able to adequately summarize the chapter (Dartmouth, 2001). The study used the term
"obedient purposelessness"
.

What problems do you encounter when you read or take notes?

Are there any reading or note-taking strategies you currently use?

Reading Strategies

There is no benefit to reading before class.

The best time to read is at night.

Frequent breaks while reading can help you memorize the material.

You must read 45 minutes to 1 hour at a time in order to have a productive reading period.

Reading in an environment free of distractions is most effective.

Skimming the text is not a good reading strategy for college.

Referring to a dictionary or rereading material is a useful strategy to understand difficult concepts.
Use this strategy to Organize...Engage...Retain

You can modify SQ3R to fit your coursework and individual needs.

Why are Reading and Note-taking Strategies Important?
Reading...prepares us for lecture.

Reading and Note-taking...increases our
engagement
with material and the instructor.

Note-taking...is sometimes more valuable than relying on the text. Why?

Reading and Note-taking strategies together help us fill in gaps in our knowledge.

RETENTION. Some studies suggest we lose up to 40% of terms and definitions within the first 24 hours of learning them.

Save time!
Article and Reflection

Which aspect do you find the most helpful?

Which courses can you apply this strategy to for the upcoming week?

Top Margin:
Write the course subject, lecture date, and a title at the top of the page.

Recall Column:
To create your recall column, draw a line 2 ½ inches from the left side of the paper. During lecture, reduce the instructor’s comments into concise statements, summaries and ideas. Use the Recall Column as a quick reference when reviewing notes later.

Note-taking Column:
Use the right-hand side of the paper to take notes. Notes should be legible and meaningful. Skip lines at the end of an idea or thought to show a transition in subject matter or concepts. Use abbreviations and telegraphic writing to save time. Number the note pages.

Summary:
After lecture, write a summary of the main ideas in your own words.

Actively Review Notes:
Test your knowledge using the Recall Column. Turn statements, summaries, and ideas into potential test questions. As you review, underline or highlight main ideas. Questions? Review notes with a friend, email the instructor or attend office hours.

Note-Taking Strategies
True or False
There is no benefit to sitting in the front of class.

The instructor will often give verbal and non-verbal cues to help you identify important concepts.

An adapted writing style will help you write more quickly.

You should take the time to try to understand everything the instructor says in lecture.

It is important to reorganize, revise, and amplify your notes for greater understanding.

Comparing your notes with a classmates is not a good note-taking strategy.
