Too often educators teach specific note taking strategies like Cornell Notes without teaching students WHY they work.
Tune in to hear Gretchen outline a straightforward approach to helping take better notes.
Specifically, she discusses:
- Review the Study Cycle, which summarizes the three steps the brain needs to learn
- Understand where good note taking fits into the Study Cycle (hint: encoding!)
- Discuss the two steps to note-taking
- Learn tips for how to put each of these steps into practice.
At one point in this episode, Gretchen references the excellent graphic organizers at www.ThinkingMaps.com.
