Today I’m going to teach you a specific note taking style that is really effective for lectures. A lot of times in class when taking notes, students feel like they need to try to write down everything the teacher is saying. This isn’t actually a very effective way to absorb information. Cornell notes are a style of note taking that is much more effective. We don’t do a lot of lectures in high school but when you go to university that’s what the majority of your classes will be. This is a note taking style that’s useful in any subject area.
What are Cornell notes?
(You will get a handout of this in class.)
So now let’s try applying this to a lecture on Act 2 of Othello.
No reading for homework but please have your proposals ready for Monday.
