How to Take Notes
Taking effective notes can certainly improve comprehension of the information presented in class and help organize for test study. However, many students have never learned how to take notes effectively. Indeed, many teachers seem to think that note-taking is a skill learned only by osmosis, and not by direct instruction. A few note-taking strategies will help remedy this problem.Notes are summaries of the main ideas and key details that the teacher wants you to understand and remember. Effective note-taking organizes these summaries so that they can easily be reviewed and practiced. Here are a few key ingredients to effective note-taking:
1. Listen to or read the complete thought. Don't write something down until you understand it.
2. Learn the signals that your teacher and textbook use to stress main ideas and key details. Some of these signals may be the following:
-repeating key points
-raising the voice to emphasize key points
-spelling key terms
-writing key points down
-using phrases such as "key to" "most importantly" "main idea" "in conclusion"
-using transition words such as "first" "next" "finally"
3. Don't write down everything that the teacher or textbook says. Be selective. If you already know it, don't write it down.
4. Use your own "shorthand" symbols and abbreviations. Think text messaging!
5. Ask questions about main ideas and key details that you don't understand.
