    • Without Pictures
  • Outline Notes

Fill-in-the-Blank
  • Teacher provided
  • Requires focusing and active listening

noting what i ve learned
Noting What I’ve Learned
  • Simplest form of note taking
    • Usually used for inexperienced note takers
  • Students are provided the Main Idea and Subtopics to fill-in

column note taking
Column Note Taking
  • Similar to “Noting What I’ve Learned”
  • Requires more active thinking on the students’ part
  • Requires the student to create questions concerning the material
  • This can be used to help the student study on their own as well
  • Example with Pictures: Unit on Matter
  • Example without Pictures: Unit on Matter
outline notes
Outline Notes
  • Most difficult for students to develop
    • Requires a great deal of focusing, listening, and organizational skills.
    • Must know main ideas, subtopics, and supporting details
  • Teachers must guide the students by modeling
  • Example: Unit on Matter p. 1, p. 2
underlining highlighting
Underlining & Highlighting
