Cornell Notes
  • How do Cornell notes improve my retention and
    study habits?
  • Cornell notes are designed to have the student
    retain the information presented by seeing it at
    least three times.
  • First, you write your notes.
  • Second, you go back, look at the main sections,
    and create a unifying question that prompts you
    to recall the information.
  • Last, you write a summary at the end of the page
    the sums up the key points on that page.

Cornell Notes
  • How do I take Cornell notes?
  • First, you draw two lines on your paper to divide
    it into sections.
  • The first line is drawn down the left side with
    about a 2 ½ inch margin.
  • The second line is drawn about 2 inches from the
    bottom.

Cornell Notes How To
In the middle of the paper is where you take your
notes. This is done during class. Skip lines
between topics so you know where one ends and the
other begins.
  • CUES
  • main ideas
  • questions that connect points
  • diagrams
  • prompts you to help you study
  • NOTES SECTION
  • Record the lecture here, using
  • concise sentences
  • shorthand symbols
  • abbreviations
  • lists
  • skip spaces between topics

On the left hand side, you put questions and main
ideas that prompt the main points in each
section. Do not answer the questions!! Each
section should be separated by skipped lines.
You do this after class.
In the summary section, you put the main ideas
and key points of the lecture to show you
understand what is important. This is done after
class.

look at the questions when you study and form
your own answers. The SUMMARY section (red) has
the main points and the answers to the Cue
section. It is very short.
