I'm trying to get my students to take better notes for my middle school health classes (6-8 grade). I'm familiar with graphic organizers, outlines and cornell notes, and was curious what method of note taking you guys think is best suited for middle schoolers? Also, I'm interested in the science of note taking as well. I was never taught how to take notes, so not even sure what the research says on effective note taking. I should note that, I don't lecture much in my class, but when I do introduce topics, or have a class discussion, I want students to be actively doing something. I do provide graphic organizers to a certain extent, but sometimes I struggle with finding what is an appropriate note taking method for what I'm discussing with my class. Appreciate any help you can give!
