How to take great notes
- Title each page of your notes with the section, classroom discussion, or video it covers.
- Review the discussion question for your assigned section.
- Write the discussion question at the top of your page before taking notes.
- Take notes after reading the section (or while you read the section.)
- Your notes should answer the discussion question.
- If your study guide includes a scripture and you find that scripture in your reading section always write down the reference and verse(s) in your notes.
- Provide definitions for any important terms, such as those in your glossary.
- *Recommended*: Include definitions for new words that you need to know to understand the important terms.
If you want to be even more certain that you have great notes, make sure your notes align with the objective given for that section.
Note: This note-taking approach works well for any class that gives you learning objectives or even discussion questions ahead of time.
