Think about your current method for taking notes and studying; write down the different methods you use.

Warm Up Exercise:

taking lecture notes

TAKING LECTURE NOTES

BEING PROACTIVE!

why take notes

Forces you to listen carefully

  • Test you understanding of the material
  • For reviewing, provide a gauge to what

is important

  • Personal notes are easier to remember

than text

  • Writing down important points helps

you remember before you study the

material formally.

Why take notes?
common clues

Teachers usually give clues to what is

important to take down

    • Material written on the blackboard, proxy,

or PowerPoint

    • Repetition
    • Emphasis
    • Word signals
    • Summaries at end of class
    • Reviews given at the beginning of class
Common Clues:
develop your own method

Suggestions:

    • Make your notes brief
      • use phrase instead of sentence; word instead

of phrase

      • use abbreviations and symbols, but be

consistent.

    • Use your own words EXCEPT:
      • Formulas, definitions & specific facts
Develop your own method
outlines or numbering

Use an outline or numbering system

    • Indentation helps you distinguish major from

minor points

  • If you miss a statement, write down a key

word, skip a few spaces, and get the

information later.

  • Date your notes!!!
  • Number the pages

note making

Learning to make notes effectively will help you to improve your study and work habits and to remember important information.

  • Just because you understand information in class means you will remember information later. Write it down!
NoteMaking
hints on note making

Don’t write down everything you read or

head (listen for main points)

  • Notes should consist of key words or very

short sentences

  • Take accurate notes
    • Use your own words but don’t change the

meaning

    • If you quote directly, quote correctly; make

note of who said it

Hints on Note Making
hints on note making1

Omit description and full explanations

  • Condense your material so you can grasp it

rapidly

  • Don’t worry about missing a point
  • Don’t keep notes on oddly shaped pieces

of paper. Keep notes in binder – in order!

  • Review your notes NIGHTLY… this is the only way to achieve lasting memory
Hints on Note Making
being proactive

If you don’t understand a concept…ASK

  • When a question is asked in class…
    • See if you can answer in your mind
      • If not is the information in your notes
      • If it is not, write the information down!
  • Read current notes nightly until you are

tested.
