  • Note-taking is a way of recording key information and details from a reading or from class.

Why Teach Note-Taking?

  • Note-taking can help students

  • remember important facts and details from a reading.

  • It can help students think through important information until they truly understand it.

  • Good readers take notes before,

  • during, and after reading a selection.

  • Good readers watch for important

  • parts of the text and write them down.

  • Good readers review their notes later.

It’s in the Outcomes!

  • e.g. Grade 7 SCO 8.3

  • - understand that note-taking is purposeful ( e.g. personal use, gathering information for an assignment, recording what has happened and what others have said) and many forms, (e.g. lists,

  • summaries, observations, and descriptions)

“It is critical to support learners through the learning process and gradually release responsibility to them.”

  • Keene & Zimmerman - Mosaic of Thought
