YOUR NOTEBOOK

Notebook Organization Requirements:

Keeping your notes organized is important to

Because so many students have not learned how to maintain their notes, assignments, and graded papers in an orderly fashion, you will be required to follow certain guidelines in setting up and maintaining your notebooks for my class.

Section 1a: Assignment Codes

This section is the first section in the front of your notebook and will include only a few sheets of paper. In this section you will list the different codes for assignments. Write the following NOW in your notebook:

Assignment Codes

OL = online at http://www.quia.com/shared/bio/

L = Lesson questions in EOC Coach book

p = page number in textbook

WB = section in the workbooks

WS = worksheet

D = drawing

V = video

L = lab activity

VL = virtual lab activity

X = extra credit

Section 2: Assignments

This section is the second section in your notebook and will include only a few sheets of paper. In this section you will list the assignments in order as they are assigned. Separate each of your sections with a piece of colored paper to make it easy to locate the beginning of each section. Use a sticky tab to identify where your notes last ended. The following is the format you should use for this section:

Section 3: Notes

This section is the third section in your notebook and will be the one of the largest. In this section you will write all of your notes in order as they are covered in class. If you wish to include copies of the slides obtained from my website you would insert those copies at the end of the date when that lesson was completed.

The following is the format you should use for this section:

Section 4: Graded Assignments

This section is the fourth section in your notebook and will also be large. In this section you will keep all of your graded and returned assignments. This will help you to keep up with what you have done and can be correlated with your Assignments list to make sure you have completed all assignments and tests.

NOTETAKING 101: How to take complete and useful notes in Mr. Litakers’ classes.

  • Notetaking is not difficult.

  • You will need to be able to take notes as someone speaks in a variety of situations as an adult.

  • Developing notetaking skills now will help you to be successful in school and work.


Notebook organization requirements keeping your notes organized is important to

Let’s look at some examples of notetaking events:

Animal Behaviorist

Politicians

College students

Journalists

Police Officer

Job Trainees

PTO meetings

Jet Fighter Pilot

Beekeeper

Notetaking is writing down information quickly while retaining what is important.

The first thing we must know is what to write and what not to write. Let’s begin with identifying important information in a written sample:

Organisms that are capable of making their own food are called producers. In most ecosystems, plants are the producers. Organisms that eat producers to obtain food are known as consumers. Some consumers, called herbivores, eat only plants. Consumers that eat only producers are also known as primary consumers. Other consumers, known as carnivores, eat other animals. Consumers that eat other consumers are called secondary consumers.

NOTETAKING FROM WRITTEN MATERIAL:

Taking notes from written material includes taking notes from screens, promethean boards, books , computers, handouts, etc.

Our first exercise is to learn to take notes from written material.

You will be given a set of written information on screen. The information will be available to you for only 1 minute. This is more than the amount of time you typically would have to get the information down before the speaker has gone on to another topic. Write as much information as you can in the time provided.

Are you ready? Let’s go!

Prokaryotic organisms appeared about 2 billion years ago.

ENDOSYMBIONT Theory

Some prokaryotic cells began evolving

internal cell membranes.

Result = primitive eukaryotic cell.

Some prokaryotic cells entered

the eukaryotic cells and developed a symbiotic relationship with the eukaryotic cell.

The inner prokaryotic cells evolved into cell organelles.

OK. Let’s practice!

  • Again you will see a set of information and have only 30 seconds to write. This time try to write your notes remembering these tips:

  • Only write the important words.

  • Use symbols when you can.

  • Use short words.

  • Abbreviate familiar words.

  • Write unfamiliar words only once then abbreviate them.

Ready? Let’s go!

When things go bad…

  • Diseases of lysosomes are fatal

    • Because a digestive enzyme is not working in lysosome.

    • The lysosome picks up food, but can’t digest it.

      • The lysosomes all fill up with undigested material.

    • They grow larger & larger until cell & organ function are disrupted.

      • One Example includesTay-Sachs diseasewhich is a build up undigested fat in the brain cells.

The Outline Method

Biology = study of life

Characteristics of life

Made of cells unicellular = one celled

multicellular = many celled

specialized = many celled with cells having special jobs

Reproduce

asexual = one gene donor

sexual = two gene donors

Universal genetic code

all animals have same stuff making up genes

Grow and Develop

Get Food and Use Energy

metabolism = rate at which organism uses energy

Let’s Practice Outline Notetaking…

I will show you three slides with information similar to that used in our example before.

You will have only a few seconds to take notes for each slide.

Ready? Let’s Go!

The Shorthand Method

A scientist collects data by making careful observations. An observation is a record or note made by studying something using the senses. An observation might include how something looks, sounds, or feels. Measurements that describe the characteristics of an object also result from observations. Biologists use observations as they attempt to prove or disprove their hypothesis.

Bio 09/12/10

Observation = record/note – use senses: look, sound, feel, etc.

Measurmnts frm observ. Biolgists use = prove/disprove hypothesis.

Leave out vowels when you can.

Let’s practice some words first.

Write the following words/phrases in your own shorthand:

Similar

Characteristics

Includes

Example

Individual

Environment

Relationship

Molecule

Combined

Defined as

Functions as

Here are some we came up with:

simlr, char, incl, ex, ind, env, relat, mol, combnd, def, funct.

Now let’s practice reading some shorthand notes:

Rlationshps btwn species cn b clssfied as symbiosis or predation. Symbiosis is a prmnt rltshp btwn 2 dif types of orgs. Thr r 3 dif typs of symb: mutualism, commensalism, + parasitism.

Mutualism = both orgs benefit. Ex. Sea anemone + clwnfish. Clwnfsh protectd, anemone fed.

Commensalism = one org benefits, other unaffected. Sm org ben, lg org not affctd.

Ths is lk readng a txt msg!

Now let’s practice shorthand note-taking!

You will be given a set of notes and a limited amount of time in which to view them.

Ready? Let’s Go!

In parasitism, one organism benefits, and the other is harmed. The organism that benefits is called the parasite, and the other organism is called the host. Tapeworms and liver flukes are parasites that live in the bodies of other organisms. They feed off the host and often cause diseases.

Parasitism, 1 org bnft, other hrmed. Org bnft = parasite. Other org = host. Tapeworms/liver flukes r prsites + feed off hst + cause disease.

In a minute you will be read a paragraph. As the paragraph is read to you, try to take notes as completely as possible. The reading will be done at a normal speaking speed. Use any technique you like or a combination of techniques.

No pauses will be made for you to catch up.

Ready? Let’s Go!

In all of these types of note taking techniques, as someone speaks you must filter out the unimportant words and write the important words. How do you know which words to write? Let’s use an example. In this case you will be able to view the words of the speaker. Later, you will be writing notes when listening to a speaker.

Time to practice note taking from written and verbal instruction.


Notebook organization requirements keeping your notes organized is important to

Now let’s try identifying important information in a verbal sample: I will read another paragraph.

Write down as many important words or phrases as you can. Use any note-taking techniques you prefer.

I will read at a normal talking speed.

Ready? OK!

You should now have some techniques that will help you to take notes efficiently and thoroughly during my class.

Remember to use these new techniques.

The more you use them, the easier it will become.

GOOD LUCK!

Assignment Due Tomorrow:

Take notes from at least five (5) school-appropriate commercials on TV or radio using some of the techniques you learned today.
