You are very good at notetaking. 15 - 11 points: Your notes are mostly in the “good” range. With a little work, you could really improve them. 10 - 0 points: Either you haven’t had to take many notes yet, or you really need to work on your notetaking skills. Talk to your teacher or coun- selor about getting help to improve your notetaking. Pick two of your lowest scoring items from page 14 and write down how you can improve each of them. __________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________ Be an active listener. When you’re listening to a lecture, you can’t write down everything your teacher says. To take good notes, you must pay attention and listen for the information that’s most important. Teachers give clues so you’ll know what information they think is important. As a student, your job is to listen for these clues so that you’ll be able to identify the most important information. OUTSIDE ASSIGNMENT – During the next day or two, watch and listen carefully for clues from your teachers. On the lines below, write down five things your teachers did to emphasize important information. For example: Mrs. Johnson said “the most important reason,” Mr. Smith wrote a definition on the board, or Miss Thompson repeated the same information three times. 1.______________________________________________________________ 2.______________________________________________________________ 3.______________________________________________________________ 4.______________________________________________________________ 5.______________________________________________________________
