After reading Mr. C's post about note-taking, I was inspired to spread to the good word of note-taking to my students today. We took time out of our science schedule today to study The Cornell Note-taking System. Forty years ago, Walter Pauk (1989) developed what is known as the Cornell note-taking technique to help Cornell University students better organize their notes. Today, Pauk's note-taking technique is probably the most widely used system throughout the United States.
Pauk outlines six steps in the Cornell note-taking system:Today we used this technique today to help us study plant reproduction, and we will continue using this system again tomorrow.
