GC214 – Notetaking – Key Point Notetaking (Reading Notes)
GC214-S4 – Key Point Notetaking – Most lessons cover approximately three or four major topics or objectives. Alexa or Instructor will guide students in using a Key Point Notetaking sheet, which is a sheet of paper, folded in half, vertically. Before reading, students will label the front left side of each vertical sheet, with a major reading topic and a quiz question, saving space in the aligning right column for the quiz response Then, when reading, students will add key points in the right column, with details and examples, per topic. Last, after reading, a Topic Summary Statement will be added to the remaining right column. For Flash Sheets, students will add a General Quiz Question, with a response that includes the previously captured key points. (Three or more index cards can be substituted for a sheet. (Infusing summarization can increase student achievement by 33% – Marzano, Pickering and Pollack).
