Cornell Style Notes

Today we discussed how to take Cornell style notes.  To take Cornell style notes, you should divide your paper into three sections: cues, notes, and summary.  You should then follow the six R’s, which are record, reduce, recite, reflect, review, and recap.

Listening to Short Stories: Sir Walter Raleigh

Today we also listened to the short story “Sir Walter Raleigh” and created a story map using the Cornell style of notes.  You can download the audio version of the file here (right click on “here” and select “save as”) or the online print version or to download the print version.

Homework

Complete a page of Cornell style notes on the short story.  Feel free to listen to it as many times as you need to.  Remember to write the story map in the notes section, then complete the cues section, and write a summary.  Follow the six R’s mentioned above and on your handout (download it here).

Project

Take Cornell style notes for all classes that require notes for one full week.  You can do this on your own paper.  It does not need to be in your journal. Bring them all on Wednesday, September 10 for me to check that you have done them.

    hi, Mr. B! I have a question about the one week cornell note-taking. WIll this include math? or only the subjects we normally take notes on?

    Answer

    You only have to do it in classes that you would normally take notes in. But, if you should be taking notes in a certain class, but haven’t been, then do it in those classes too. Good question!
