Today we talked about a few different type of note-taking strategies, including outlining, Cornell Method, SQ3R (to prepare to take notes) and what all of you do for your college classes. It is important to get yourself organized, pre-read (or skim) your assigned readings, review posted PPTs, and review your notes on a regular basis. If you can practice these note-taking strategies NOW, you will be an expert at taking notes & reviewing lecture information by the time you get to your advanced college credits and challenging course material.
We also introduced the FINAL Major/Career Research Paper & Video Presentation (you can download a copy of the assignment from Blackboard Learn).
