Today in class we were looking over our notes from chapter 1. Mrs. Lees gave us a sheet with a graph on it so that we could evaluate ourselves on our note taking.On the sheet there were 3 different letters that you could put next to a criteria. G for good, S for satisfactory, and finally, N standing for not yet meeting expectations. There was a section of criteria each of the different types of note taking ( point form, web, and cornell). After assessing our work, Mrs. Lees told us to write about how we could improve the next time we take notes because a lot of us didn't do so good. However, it was the first time so it should be fine.
The learning that we did today was to check over our note taking with fresh eyes and to know what is good and what is bad about our notes. Also, knowing what to change when it is bad.
When we look at our notes with fresh eyes, our brain forgets what we wrote so it is like reading somebody else's writing. When we check on work that is new to us we find new mistakes that we didn't see before. That is why Mrs. Lees made the class wait a couple of weeks before doing this assignment.
Today there was no homework.
Keep your binder organized so that when we take old work like we did today, you will always know where everything is.
