Transcript of (Final) Cornell Notes

By: Katy Yan, Christine Shin, and Allison Mok Cornell Notes! How can we use our cornell notes to study? How to take Cornell Notes: Now it is your turn! Everyone has 15 seconds to take out a sheet of paper and we will set up our very own cornell notes. Let's do some examples. We will read sentence and you guys are responsible to write the sentence in cornell notes style. -skip lines to separate the information

-use visuals for notes

-abbreviate to save for listening time.

-get the main idea down! yes details are important but they are ONLY MEANINGFUL with their concepts While you are taking notes, it is important to... -Cover the left hand side and look at the concepts on the right hand side.

-Look at the key idea and try to recite everything you know about that idea. Then uncover the right hand side to verify the information.

-Reflect on the organization of all the lectures. Overlap the left hand side of the notes and stud how the information progresses.

(**This will stimulate categories, relationships, inferences, personal opinions/experiences**; linking ideas is key to really understanding the concept!) -Cornell University has created an efficient way to take notes.
-This note taking method was adopted by AVID; this method was a tool to try to assist students to become successful in their college classes.
-Teaching students cornell notes WILL take time, however, it is proven to be a valuable resource for students as they leave high school and get into college.
-By using cornell notes, students will view writing as a valuable tool in their learning. Where did Cornell Notes come from? Advantages of Cornell Notes 1. It is a method for mastering information, not just recording facts.

2. It is efficient.

3. Each step prepares the way for the next part of the learning process.

4. It helps you focus on important concepts (vocabulary words, people, formulas, etc) 1) First, divide the paper into three sections. Make sure the line you draw is clear!
2) Write the course name date and topic on the top of the paper
3) The large box part of the note is to take notes, and the skinny left column is to write key points of the notes. For example: when we are taking notes about the properties of rectangles, the left column will have properties of rectangles and then on the right list it.
4) Make sure you skip lines between the ideas and topics.
5) Use your notes to summarize the main ideas in two or three sentences at the bottom of the page *This will help you when you study your notes* “Hippocrates, a Greek who is considered to be the Father of Medicine, was born on the island of Cos in 460 B.C.” After writing cornell notes down, would anyone like to share what they did? Notes should say: Hippocrates (left column)
(Gr.) Father of Med. B. Cos 460 B.C. (right column) The properties of rectangles is that all four angles are right angles and the diagonals are congruent.” After writing cornell notes down, would anyone like to share what they did? Notes should say:
Properties (left column)

-all 4 angles are right angles
-diagonals are congruent (right column) After you take your notes.. -Review your notes and edit your notes (especially the parts that you feel like will confuse you after time passes. For example, an abbreviation you used in class but you probably won’t remember when you review your notes for a test).

-Underline/Highlight the key words in your notes

-Write questions in the left column about the information on the right side

-Edit and add onto the key concepts on the left column (maybe adding brief phrases that will trigger your memory about the ideas/concepts) Are these notes good or bad? Congratulations future teachers! You have now mastered CORNELL NOTES.
