This Week’s Study Skills Seminar: Notable Notes! Wednesday, February 9 at 6 pm and Thursday, February 10 at 4 pm.. RSS 103

4 weeks into the semester, and students’ notebooks are already bulging with page after page of class notes. The question is: what are they going to do with those notes? Students very quickly find that ‘reading through my notes a bunch of times’ does not usually prepare them adequately for college tests, but are often unsure of what to do differently. At this week’s Study Skills Seminar

  • Notable Notes!
  • Wednesday, February 9 at 6 pm
  • Thursday, February 10 at 4 pm
  • Robert Scott Small, rm 103
  • Snacks served!

we will address a variety of Active Note Taking Strategies, including how to use Visual Organizers, the Cornell System, and the 4R Method. We will also discuss how to be a more ‘active’ student in the classroom, even in a lecture class, and will extol the benefits of ongoing, regular review of notes. Students will leave with a new Tool for their Study Toolbox!

I hope to see your students this week!
