I'm interested in making the switch to Cornell Notes for my 7th grade social studies class. Last year (my first year,) I used guided notes, which I felt were a little stale, provided too much information, and required no thought on the part of the student. I've done a lot of research, but my only concern is that students will not get all of the information that they will need. Has anybody used these in their classroom, in any subject? If so, how did you model and structure it? Did they prove to be effective?
