Cornell NotesCornell Notes are a proven focused note-taking method. When used appropriately, students are guaranteed to increase their knowledge and raise their grades in any given class! Cornell Notes are taken during class lectures, class power points, class readings, or movies in which students are responsible for the information. In order to receive full credit for the weekly Cornell Notes quiz grade, students must have all the required parts of the notes:
- Full heading
- Specific topic
- Notes in the right side highlighted with key words or phrases
- Main ideas and high level questions in the left column
- A summary at the end of the notes
Students may take Cornell Notes in a spiral notebook or on notebook paper as required by the content area teachers, however, students are expected to use the Cornell Note format and repetition strategies and review notes regularly.
