Note Taking


**Please send all correspondence and questions for this module to your TRiO advisor**

Student Learning Outcome:

Students will be able to identify skills to be successful at note taking in college.

Step 1:

Review the  Note Taking PowerPoint presentation - I recommend that you DO NOT view the PowerPoint presentation as a slide show, so that you can read the notes below each slide (when applicable). In order to do so, right click on the link and click on "Save Target As"; then click on "Open". Also make sure to record your answers to the questions that are asked on Slide #3 of the PowerPoint presentation.

Additionally, be able to answer the following questions:

  1.  What are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking notes and listening?
  2.  Why is it so important to review your notes daily and weekly?
  3.  What are 3 methods of note-taking, and which do you prefer?
  4. What are some tips for good note taking?

Step 2:

Choose one of the note taking methods described in the Note Taking PowerPoint (Cornell, Informal Outline, or Mind Map) and use it to take notes on the following video ...
