Better grades start with better notes, describe 2 different note-taking methods.
There are many different note taking methods that benefit each learning type. Two note-taking methods include the Cornell Method, and the Mapping Method. The Cornell Method is separated into 3 sections. There is a small section on the left meant for key points, questions, and vocabulary words. The majority of the page is the main note section where the bulk of information is recorded. On the bottom of the page is the summary section where you will summarize the lecture and your notes. This method is best used for understanding the key concepts in the lecture. The Mapping Method is a visual way to organize your notes. It works by beginning with the main topic and branching off into important sub-topics. The subtopics should be labeled and further key points about each subtopic will be written underneath. Especially for visual learners, this method prompts the learner to connect the relationship between the key points.
