Teaching Note Taking Skills

The ability to synthesize information into its essential and most important components is a skill many struggling learners fail to grasp. Vicki Davis has written a fantastic post called, "Note Taking Skills for 21st Century Students" that I can't recommend highly enough. Even if you just focus on effectively using the  Cornell Two-Column Note Taking system,  you are ahead of the game.  If you are interested to take it to the next level, explore Visual Note Taking which helps connect ideas combining drawing and text.

Just watched your video with my 6th grade daughter who has been struggling with how to take efficient notes. It was like a light bulb went on for her! Thank you so much for sharing this process!!!!!!
