Brain Hacking 303: Cornell Notes On Steroids

If you are an educator, the topic of note taking has come up in your PLN more than once. Perhaps you are encouraged to use a certain method in your school. My school is an AVID school and I taught at other AVID schools, so the Cornell Note-Taking Method is something I've been exposed to a lot, have much experience with, and use with my students.

I believe that note-taking, regardless of how the notes are taken: on paper or digitally, is a tool that can allow students to become better, self-sufficient, and self-directed learners. Thus, my mission as a teacher is to not only teach chemistry, but to equip my students with learning tools and strategies that help them focus and achieve greater success in the k-12 classroom, college, and beyond. One such tool and strategy is the Cornell Notes On Steroids Template I created and use with my students. Check it out!

Not all of my students choose to use the template. A great majority of the ones that do find the template useful. They especially like the section for objectives and its organization. Summarizing is one of those high ROI activities I have to constantly stress, but guess what? IT'S WORTH IT. You can download the Cornell Notes On Steroids template and the Table of Contents for free.

I hope you find the Brain Hacking infographic above useful. You can access other Brain-Based Learning infographics I created by scrolling down my ED!Blog. Please share it with other educators, parents, and learners. I will feature the 9th Brain-Based Learning Infographic: "Brain Hacking 304" in my next NEWSLETTER, so please SIGN UP if you would like to receive some tips on how to help your students become better learners.

And Remember: You Have the Power to Change the World. Use it often.
