How do you currently teach students in your classroom to summarize information to enhance student learning?
Students must delete, substitute, and keep some information when summarizing.
To effectively delete, substitute, and keep information, students must analyze the information at a fairly deep level.
Must be aware of explicit structure of information.
The events of photosynthesis can be summed up in a chemical equation. The raw materials—six molecules of carbon dioxide and six molecules of water—are on the left side of the equation. The products—one molecule of glucose and six molecules of oxygen—are on the right side of the equation. An arrow connects the raw materials to the products. Light energy, which is necessary for the chemical reaction to occur, is written above the arrow.
R- Carbon dioxide, water, sunlight
I- equation of photosynthesis

Contains 4 Components:
It is appropriate for the teacher to provide students with a complete set of notes on a topic.”
Verbatim note taking is least effective.
Should be a work in progress.
Should be used as study guides for tests.
The more notes taken, the better.
Teach Multiple Formats
1. Teacher Prepared Notes
2. Combination Notes
3. Informal Outline
4. Webbing – (graphic organizer)
5. Cornell Notes – two column (not McRel)
1. Give Teacher-Prepared Notes
2. Use Combination Notes
Uses 3 parts:
-uses the relative size of circles to indicate the importance of ideas
-uses lines to indicate relationships
Advantage- provides a visual representation of the information
Disadvantage-limits the amount of information that can be stored because the circles can only hold so many words
