For day 1 and 2 this cycle (Friday and Monday), we’ve been focussed on monthly and quarterly progress monitoring probes. These give me insight into how you read and do math, and that helps me think about what to focus on going forward.
For days 3 and 4 (Tuesday and Wednesday) we’ll get back to note taking. Today, we’ll talk about how we organize our notes once we take them. As we’ve discussed, note taking helps us remember important ideas, even if we don’t review them later. But if we do review our notes later, we can learn even more. In order to review our notes, though, we have to be able to find them! Different people organize their notes in different ways. These include:
- Three ring binder, with dividers for subjects and classes;
- Spiral notebook, one per class;
- Digital folders (we’ll set up folders in Notability tomorrow).
What system do you use so that you can find your notes? Or if you don’t have a system, what system do you want to try? Please share your thinking by commenting on this post.
