Taking Notes Created by Lori Theaker March 2006 How do I do this? There are different ways to take notes, but first you might want to gather your tools: A pencil/pen; A highlighter; Post-ItTM notes; Note cards iPad apps. How do I use the

tools? Please remember that your TOOLS are not TOYS note taking is a job and the tools are to help you complete the job. Dont waste your time OR your materials. Using a Pencil When you take notes with a pencil, it depends on if you have a COPY of the information (that youre allowed to write on) or a note-card (to copy

information on to) If its a COPY You can underline or circle important items If its an original (like the BOOK!) You can write down the important information on note cards or scrap paper Just DONT write down EVERYTHING! Heres one example: Tigers living in tropical regions mate throughout the

year. Tigers in the northern regions breed only in the winter months. Gestation (duration of pregnancy) is about four months. A mother usually gives birth to two to four cubs at a time. Cubs are about one foot (1/3 meter) long and weigh less than two pounds (3/4 kilograms) at birth. Until about age two, cubs are completely dependent on their mothers for food. At about age 2 1/2, the cubs leave their mother and her territory to find their own home range. (FROM SEARCHASAURUS) My notes 1. Tigers are pregnant about 4 months

2. Tigers usually have 2 to 4 cubs 3. Tiger cubs are little, weighing less than 2 lbs. at birth 4. Tiger cubs live with their mothers until theyre @ 2 years old If youre using a highlighter The item that you are taking notes from must be a COPY of something (maybe a computer print-out) DONT highlight every word thats not the point; you only want

the MOST IMPORTANT information to be highlighted An example using a highlighter Source: Encyclopedia of Animals Item #: 9500300004 Copyright of Encyclopedia of Animals is the property of EBSCO Publishing and text may not be copied without their express written permission except for the print or download capabilities of the retrieval software used for

Post-It Method Lets say youre REALLY IN A HURRY Youve waited too long to begin (thats a NoNo, by the way) Find the information you want to use and stick a Post-ItTM next to the text in the article or book Number the Post-Its in the order you want to present your information Write down in your own words the information you want to share (on a separate sheet of paper) in the order that you gave to the Post-Its This may be one of the fastest methods, but it is NOT recommended. Sometimes, however, we all find ourselves in a time

crunch! Note Cards These can be a very nice tool especially when youre organizing your final product Write down just ONE FACT per card making sure you write down the source www.kyvl.org/ #1 searchasaurus Tiger babies

Takes about 4 months Usually 2 to 4 cubs Kind of little about 2 lbs. Note Cards continued After youve gone through your resources and have a number of note cards, rearrange them in the order you want to present the information You dont have to keep them in the order that you took the notes
