tips for selecting key words
Tips For Selecting Key Words
  • Key words should be as short as possible – a single word or a 3 to 4 word phrase at most
  • If you have difficulty remembering a term, make that your key word.
  • Use dates.
  • When you select a key word, form a visual of the key.
  • Always select your own key words – don’t borrow from others as you will have difficulty remember them
  • If a key word does not jog a memory of your notes, change it.
  • Use simple drawings instead of words.

Example: If you are talking about whales – you might write – whales surface 2 brea/e. Spout /ru

  • For the word whale, you might draw

  • Do not do your key words until you finish your notes.
  • When your notes are finished, read them, clarify if necessary and write your key words.
  • Finally, in the bottom space, summarize what your notes are about.
