GC213 – Notetaking – Concept Map Notetaking Sheet
GC213-S4 – Concept Map Notetaking Sheet – In a three-step process, as directed, during notetaking, individually, with a partner or small group, Alexa or Instructor will guide students to create a concept map for notetaking. Notetaking will begin by inserting the lesson topic or image in a center circle, on a horizontal sheet of paper. Next, sub-topic squares will be linked, using key points or categories, as dictated by the lesson. Last, they will draw a line from the center circle to each square and insert a relevant linking word on each line. (Linking words are similar to verbs or action words, such as has, have, is, are, shows, values, may lead to, results from, may drive, determines, works with, etc.) By linking the lesson topic to the sub-topics, and the sub-topics to details, simple sentences are formed.
