Call on students to read aloud their summary
Allow students 5 minutes before a test to use the fold-over method to study and to quiz each other
Empower your students
Allow students to take REAL ownership of their own learning

Essential Questions are:
Given by the teacher to the students to start the focused note-taking process
An overarching question that focuses the note-taking for the students
LO's written in a question format
What are Cornell Notes and how can they help my students make better grades?
What is our Essential Question?
Ways ALL teachers at Greiner can support Literacy
Require students to write the summary in complete sentences. The note-taking itself should be short phrases and abbreviated, but not the summary.
Remind students that a summary includes important details from the Beginning, Middle, and End of the notes (known as the BME strategy in Reading).
Have the students read their written summaries aloud to a partner on a regular basis.
ALL subject areas should be using either Cornell Notes or Interactive Notebooks on a regular basis
Any time a new concept is introduced in class
During direct teaching times, lectures, videos, and Power Point Presentations
During Student Presentations
Table Discussion Questions:
1.) What were your own personal experiences like with note-taking and learning to take notes? What are some struggles you or your students encounter with note-taking? How will teaching our students to take Cornell Notes help them?
2.) What are some different ways you can differentiate C-Notes for students with learning disabilities, for LEP students, for TAG students, etc?
3.) Looking at the steps of the Cornell Way, which step do you think most students struggle with the most? What are some ways you could help them with that step?
