    Note Taking Made Easy!

    Note Taking Made Easy!

    by Deana Hippie

    Knowing how to take effective notes is an essential skill students need to be successful. But teaching students this skill is often challenging, but Deana Hippie, an experienced teacher, has developed clear, research-based lessons that really work. First, she helps students understand the hierarchical structure of expository text (main ideas supported by specific details). Then, she presents lessons that show students how to note similarities and differences in ideas and how to look for clues about important words in a sentence or paragraph. Hippie shares lessons that will help kids learn how both to take notes during class discussion and while they’re reading a text. Her active, hands-on activities support all kinds of learners, and they are scaffolded in a gradual release model so students develop the independence they need. This invaluable resource will put all your students on the road to successful note-taking.
