I try to take down everything

that is said/on the PowerPoint

presentation in lectures.

I am unsure what the purpose

of note-taking is.

I am uncertain about how

many notes to take.

I am unsure what to make

notes on.

I do not take time to organize

my notes so that I can retrieve

them later on.

I only know one way for

note-taking.

I read the words on the page

but am not taking them in.

I spend too much or too little

time on the reading.

I have difficulty expressing

what I have read in my own

words.

I simply do not understand the

material.

I find the language used too

complicated.

academic vs non academic reading
In academic reading

the reader is:

Active

Selective and interacts with the reading material

Has a particular question in his/her mind

Re-reads with a purpose

In non-academic

reading the reader is:

Passive

Reads from page one till the end

The author guides the reader through his/her narrative

Academic Vs Non-academic Reading

how to take linear notes
How to take linear notes
  • Make headings and subheadings
  • List key words
  • Number the points
  • Underline, colour, use capital letters for emphasis
  • Use abbreviations
  • Add your own personal thoughts later
  • Only use one side of a page in case you want to add more
  • Note name of authors you want/need to read in margin
how to mind map
How to mind map
  • Turn the paper sideways, A3 landscape is best
  • Write the topic in the centre of the page
  • Write related ideas around this centre
  • Add secondary ideas to the main ideas
  • Link up these ideas to show relationships
  • Use colours, different line thickness, symbols, pictures etc.
  • Add details to points as you go along
