Note Taking

Strategies and Skills

the cornell system
The Cornell System
  • Step 1 Preparation- Use a large loose-leaf notebook. One side of the paper only. Draw a 2.5 inch vertical line on the left side of the paper. This is a recall column: when reviewing your notes pencil in key words and examples you remember form the lecture.
  • Step 2 During the lecture- Record notes in paragraph form Use abbreviations and write legibly. Skip lines to show the end of ideas or thoughts.
  • Step 3 After the lecture- Read through your notes. Use the recall column. Jot down main ideas or key words that give you the idea of the lecture.

Listening and Note Taking
  • Be a positive and active listener.
  • Come to class prepared: read material prior to the lecture.
  • Get accurate notes- Copy from overhead or PowerPoint presentations. Watch & listen to your instructor for cues: body language, verbal emphasis, reading carefully from notes.
  • Leave space between main ideas. This will allow you to add your own notes and thoughts.
  • Go over your notes within 24hrs. You will lose up to 80% of new material if you don’t!
  • Organize your notes so you can study from them.

Note Taking & Reading
  • Break down long reading assignments into 20-30m sections. Take short breaks to keep your attention sharp.
  • Read the chapter objectives or chapter review before you start to read. This will give you context and improve your comprehension and retention.
  • Read with a purpose: find the important points and highlight them for your notes.

Finding the Main Ideas in a Lecture.
  • Listen carefully! Instructors give clues to important points with phrases such as:

“Remember this…”

“Now let us turn to…:

Statements repeated or emphasized.

Change in tone of voice.

  • After class summarize, in your own words, what you have heard and write it down.
  • Share notes with classmates, they may have picked up something you missed and vice versa.

Finding the Main Idea While Reading
  • The first paragraph of a reading will usually tell you what you will be reading about. This is a great place to look for main ideas.
  • The first sentence of each paragraph is usually its topic sentence, containing the main idea.
  • Examine section headings, chapter summaries and chapter quizzes for main ideas.
  • Is the main idea implied? If so, ask yourself, “What’s the point?”
