Strategy
Why you should use two-column notes
It helps you remember what you read by making connections to the text, but in a way that feels like taking regular bulleted notes.
Two column notes are a strategy used by many people to dissect, study, and better understand certain texts.
To create your own two-column notes, first make a t-chart. In the first column write EXACTLY what the text says (words, sentences, etc.)In this column, you can also write down what you read in your own words. In the second column record what the text said in your own words (if you wrote down exactly what the text said), and/or write comments that go with the text.
Overall, the first column represents "what the text is saying to you", and the second column represents your thoughts on the topic.
You don't have to write everything down! Just take notes on what YOU think is important. Try to pull out main ideas, important quotes, facts you think are important or interesting, and words/definitions.

Examples
Some drawbacks to two-column notes are:
If you're not careful, you can get wrapped up in the comparison column.
If you take to many notes, you may not understand as much because you're too busy taking the notes
If you try and copy down paragraphs, you might take too much time doing that, therefore could lose track of what your original note was about.
"In the first column, write down EXACTLY what the
text says."

Another benefit to using two column notes is that you have all you points in one place... On your note taking sheet! This is good for you, because now you don't have to read through an entire packet to find one note that you took.
In the text column, I copied down EXACTLY what the text said.
You should use two-column notes because...
To me, this means that when I find important points within the paragraph, I must copy down what the text said in the first column.

You should use two-column notes because it is an easy way to put things into your own words to help you remember things. Did you know? Putting things into your own words actually helps you remember things better. Also, when you're writing these things down, the writing helps you remember things too! Therefore, when you are using two-column notes, you will remember things better, and the two columns help to organize you and your notes.
In this column, I wrote down MY thoughts on the text, and summarized the meaning of that particular sentence.
As you know, when you take two column notes, you use one of the columns to write down your thoughts and connections to the text. When you write these down, it makes it easier for your brain to remember the fact when you need to remember it for a test.
Two-Column notes are a great (and proficient) way to take notes. This strategy is quick, easy, and organized, best used when studying for tests or reading an assigned article.
Two column notes enable you to take neat notes, allowing you to cut down on the time you spend flipping through informational packets looking for lettering in the margins.
This strategy also makes it so you can finish your notes as you read the text, and not after (you cantake out important bits and pieces as you go, instead of summarizing in the end.)

"The things in the first column
can also be in your own
words."
So in this column, I can also write my opinions, thoughts, connections, etc.
The final benefit of using two column notes is that all your notes are in one place, and not scattered all over your notebook or packet. This is good for you because instead of searching through pages and pages of information, you can go down the column, find your note, and you're done!
