TEACHER NOTE: A major goal of this lesson is for students to become familiar and comfortable with note-taking in Cornell format. Before class, teacher should be comfortable creating Essential Questions by reframing NGSS and Common Core state standards into questions. Possible Essential Questions include:
For review of Cornell Notes see the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtW9IyE04OQ
For example of the use of Cornell Notes in Biology class see: http://www.usd230.org/shhs/upload/527a9b7f63b3d.pdf
Step One: Introduce C-note methodology of note-taking
Using the mnemonic device CORNELL WAY to review, in whole class, the ten steps involved when using the C-note methodology of note-taking.
Part I (Note-Taking) Students will:
C – Step 1: Create format:
O – Step 2: Organize notes on the right side of your note paper]
Part II: (Note-Making) Students will:
R – Step 3: Review and Revise Notes
N – Step 4: Note Key Ideas to Create Questions
E – Step 5: Exchange Ideas by Collaborating
Part III: (Note-Interacting) Students will:
L – Step 6: Link Learning to Create a Summary
L – Step 7: Learning Tool — Use Completed Notes as a Learning Tool
Part IV: (Note-Reflecting) Students will:
W – Step 8: Written Feedback
A – Step 9: Address Written Feedback
Y – Step 10: (Your Reflection) Students will:
Step Two: Practice Taking Cornell Notes
Essential Questions: Essential Question: How do organisms live and grow?
