(page 2R) Outlining and Note Taking

Why do we outline and take notes?

  • Identify important information

  • Format/organize the information in a way that is easier to study or compose an essay/paper

  • Rephrasing the information in your own words aids your understanding

Outlining and note taking
Outlining and Note Taking

Some qualities of good outlining/note taking:

  • Survey the text (Title, headings, subheadings)

  • Take accurate notes. Change the words, but keep the meaning.

  • Keep notes short and to the point

Page 3 r summarizing
(Page 3R) Summarizing!!

  • Summarizing is a skill that you have practiced many times before. You read a text, then find the main ideas and summarize them into your own words.

  • REMEMBER: A summary is ALWAYS shorter than the actual text!!

    • If you are asked to summarize one paragraph, your summary should only be about one sentence.

    • If you are summarizing a four page story, your summary will probably be about a paragraph.

      • The length of a summary will vary depending on how long the original text is!!

  • Let’s review summarizing briefly before we practice…

How to summarize
How to Summarize

  • 1. Read the story CAREFULLY-

    • Taking notes as you read will make summarizing much easier!!

  • 2. Think about the story

  • 3. Find the important ideas-

    • (main ideas)

  • 4. Identify key facts-

    • (don’t worry about the little details-you do not need to add every idea in the story, just the most important ones)

  • 5. Write your summary-

    • As you do this, pretend you have to tell a friend, who has not read the story, what it is mainly about. Remember: the summary should be shorter than the actual text!!


  • You will be working in groups of three to four people designated by your tables.

  • Your task is to narrow the entire story down to 5 sentences.

  • You will write one sentence on each post-it note and put the post-it notes in chronological order on your piece of paper.

  • Remember that you have to tell the whole story in 5 sentences, so choose your events/sentences carefully.

  • Focus on the main events and make certain that you cover the beginning, middle, and end.

Idioms page 3l
Idioms (page 3L)

  • Definition: Idioms are words, phrases, or expressions that cannot be taken literally. In other words, when used in everyday language, they have a meaning other than the basic one you would find in the dictionary. Every language has its own idioms.

  • For example, “break a leg” is a common idiom.

  • Literal meaning (Denotation) : I command you to break a bone in your leg and you should probably go to the doctor afterwards to get it fixed.

  • Idiomatic meaning (Connotation) : Do your best and do well. Often, actors tell each other to “break a leg” before they go out on stage to perform.
