GC415 – Notetaking Repair Tools – Three R’s of Notetaking – Reflect, Rewrite and Reformat Skills
GC415-S2 – Notetaking Maintenance – Reflect, Rewrite and Reformat – Summarizing and paraphrasing notes increase long-term retrieval. As directed, individually, with a partner or small group, in a two-step process, Alexa or Instructor will request students to reflect and rewrite their notes by correlating older notes with current notes. Next, the new rewritten notes will be connected with a compatible graphic. For example, if you have major concepts, with accompanying details, reformat notes into a compatible graphic, such as a concept map. If steps, series, phases, cycles or timelines are within the notes, use a flow chart graphic.
