There are a lot of reasons to take notes. Notes help us remember, notes help us review, and notes help us focus our attention. We’ve been learning how to take and organize notes recently. One tool we have been using is Notability. It allows us to use photos, a stylus or finger, or typing. You can read more about that app here. Some of our students are becoming expert users of this app, as we can see from Daniel’s recent science notes.
Over the next two weeks, I’m asking students to practice taking notes in their content area classes. I’ll be assessing those notes using this scoring guide. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
