Highlighting, annotating and underlining
  • Involves drawing lines under information, highlighting with a coloured pen, or writing notes in the margin
  • Allows you to pick up the meaning of text when you refer back to it
  • Try not to highlight everything!
  • You usually need to make written notes too
summarising

  • Bringing together notes you’ve already made to make a new, shorter version
  • Less likely to commit plagiarism
  • Abbreviating words can speed up the process
tips for note making
Tips for note making
  • Label notes clearly, and note full source info – eg book, author, publisher and place of publication, page numbers etc
  • Deciding what to note depends on what you already know and what your assignment question is
  • Put quotation marks around anything you’ve copied exactly from a book
making notes from lectures
Making notes from lectures
  • Make sure you’re prepared beforehand - know the topic of the session and note down any questions you have before the session
  • It’s more important to understand what’s being said than making notes
  • Try not to write down everything
  • Use headings
  • Ask questions if unclear
  • Don’t switch off if you get a handout
  • Review your notes as soon as possible afterwards
have you got enough notes
Have you got enough notes?
  • Roughly the word count of a task should be doubled when writing notes ege a 1500 word essay should have 3,000 words of notes
  • You might make more notes than you use – don’t worry if you don’t use them all – better to be relevant with what you do write
  • Keep essay question or topic in mind when writing and using notes
