Study Skills: Cornell Note Taking

The Cornell Notes system was  devised in the 1950s by Walter Pauk, an education professor at Cornell University. The Cornell method provides a systematic format for condensing and organising notes. It is a system of organising your notes into an effective study guide and promotes active learning and critical thinking.

A study published in 2007 by Wichita State University compared two note taking methods in a secondary classrooms, and found that Cornell Note taking may be of added benefit in cases where students are required to synthesise and apply learned knowledge.

There is now  a short video to watch which shows you how to set up your page to allow you to take Cornell notes. Some classes around the school are already using this system and pupils questioned have said they find it very useful. Maybe you should give it a try 🙂
